Indian 'Imam' Zakir Naik definitely ignorant; possibly dangerous
Regular UK visitor Zakir Naik has been denied entry by Home Secretary Theresa May, who cites Naik's "numerous comments" as constituting "unacceptable behaviour". Naik, a presenter for Peace TV and allegedly a medical doctor "renowned as a dynamic international orator on Islam and Comparative Religion" may be highly educated but he's nonetheless a lunatic.
Here Naik accounts for the American – and the even more pork–loving Chinese and European – propensity for marital shenanigans:
The pig is the most shameless animal on the face of the earth. It is the only animal that invites its friends to have sex with its mate. In America, most people consume pork. Many times after dance parties, they have swapping of wives; i.e. many say "you sleep with my wife and I will sleep with your wife." If you eat pigs then you behave like pigs.
Naik also "knows" what really happened on 9/11, having viewed “Loose Change” and “Fahrenheit” [sic]:
So how did the Twin Towers come down? They have given proof. Furthermore, they say that all the proofs given by the government to analyze – they said 19 hijackers, some of them were trained as flyers of the plane, they went to the university, and they interviewed the professors: “Do you think that this person can do such an act?” Impossible! The way the plane took a turn – and I’ve personally spoken to senior pilots, who have flown big Boeings and Airbuses for several years – they say it’s impossible to take such a turn. Imagine if just a new person of a few hundred hours takes a turn... What the experts say is that it has to be a military plane.
And here Naik addresses a question he thinks he facetiously proposes, "Why does Islam degrade women by keeping them behind the veil?"
United States of America is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries of the world. It also has one of the highest rates of rape in any country in the world. According to a FBI report, in the year 1990, every day on an average 1756 cases of rape were committed in U.S.A alone. Later another report said that on an average everyday 1900 cases of rapes are committed in USA. The year was not mentioned. May be it was 1992 or 1993. May be the Americans got ‘bolder’ in the following years.
Consider a scenario where the Islamic hijaab is followed in America. Whenever a man looks at a woman and any brazen or unashamed thought comes to his mind, he lowers his gaze. Every woman wears the Islamic hijaab, that is the complete body is covered except the face and the hands up to the wrist. After this if any man commits rape he is given capital punishment. I ask you, in such a scenario, will the rate of rape in America increase, will it remain the same, or will it decrease?
Women are hopelessly lost and helpless without a man – it's either marriage or prostitution for the unattached female:
Even if every man got married to one woman, there would still be more than thirty million females in U.S.A who would not be able to get husbands (considering that America has twenty five million gays). There would be more than four million females in Great Britain, 5 million females in Germany and nine million females in Russia alone who would not be able to find a husband.
Suppose my sister happens to be one of the unmarried women living in USA, or suppose your sister happens to be one of the unmarried women in USA. The only two options remaining for her are that she either marries a man who already has a wife or becomes public property. There is no other option. All those who are modest will opt for the first.
His view on apostates is conventionally Muslim: kill them.
Now it could be argued that Naik's views aren't all that extreme and he shouldn't be banned from speaking in the UK. On the other hand, no possible good can come from allowing Naik to further delude the already deluded.
Update: Is Swedish beauty Malin Nygren wearing her pants low hoping to attract a husband, is she a prostitute or is she simply out for an exciting night on the town? And do Alexandra Falk and Ulrica Corneliusson really want to share a husband?
