Dhaka, July 11: Mumbai-based controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik's Peace TV went off the air in Bangladesh on Monday after authorities cancelled its broadcast rights.

The information ministry issued the order on Monday, a day after the Cabinet Committee on Law and Order decided to end its broadcast, bdnews24 reported.

The decision followed allegations that the Indian preacher's speeches, sermons and interpretation of Islamic issues were "inspiring acts of terrorism" and radicalising youths.

The information ministry order read: "Based on the Cabinet committee's decision, free-to-air TV channel Peace TV's downlink permission has been cancelled for violating downlink conditions."

The ban comes in the wake of bloody terror attacks in Bangladesh this month.
