Ban on IRF is an attack on Indian Muslims, peace, democracy and justice: Zakir Naik 25.11.2016 DNA: Wide Angle
 Terming the five-year ban on Islamic Research Foundation as an attack on "Muslims, peace, democracy and justice," controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik on Friday said the ban was timed with the "demonetisation fiasco" to avert resistance and divert media attention. The central government has recently banned the IRF and declared it as a terrorist organisation under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) for five years. In an open letter, Naik, 51, who is abroad, said he will pursue all legal options to get the ban repealed and that the judiciary will fail the Modi government in its 'plans'. Naik has been booked along with unnamed IRF officials under section 153-A of IPC (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony) beside various sections of UAPA. "Before investigations were done, even before reports submitted, the ban was already decided. IRF was to be banned. Whether it was owing to my religion or some other reason, ...

All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) on Monday welcomed the ALMPLB's decision to set up a women-wing for deliberating on the raging issues like triple talaq and hoped that these problems will be looked into with an open mind.
