Zakir Naik - Exclusivist Views Not A Threat?

Indian Muslim televangelist Zakir Naik was in the headlines last week over reports by the Indian media that he was being extradited to India. The Malaysian police subsequently denied such reports.

Today, we ask why Malaysia finds itself in the position of ‘harbouring’ the controversial preacher.
