New Delhi, July 7: Zakir Naik's sudden shot to fame after the Dhaka terror attacks is no less surprising than him sharing the stage with Digvijay Singh. Both fearless in their melodrama, the question that remains is whether the video that is going viral showing Singh spplauding Naik for his powerful speech is to be trusted or not.

The politician speaks for himself. "My speech at conference organised by Zakir Naik is being shown. I spoke against Religious Fundamentalism and appealed for Communal Harmony. If GOI or the Govt of Bangladesh has any evidence against Zakir Naik's involvement with ISIS they should take action against him," he said.

He further adds, "The conference was for Communal Harmony and against Terrorism. Also to explain that Islam is against Innocents being killed."

Naik is a preacher of Islam, but has been known to be a more tolerant one all these years. However, some of his remarks on other religions have brewed up controversy. In fact, it has led to a massive radicalization on the Internet leading to mishaps like the Dhaka terror attack.
