New Delhi, MINA – Indian scholar, Dr. Zakir Naik called on the Muslim leaders of the world not to be silent watching the persecution experienced by Indian Muslims in New Dehli.

“A sincere call to Muslims around the world to speak out against the persecution of our Muslim brothers and sisters in New Delhi, India,” Zakir Naik wrote on his Facebook account, as quoted by MINA on Saturday, February 29.

He said more than 30 Muslims had been killed and more than 250 others injured, mostly due to bullet attacks. Even the attackers also ignored babies and destroyed Muslim homes, shops, and places of worship.

Seeing these conditions, Zakir invites all Muslims to fight in accordance with the ability to fight acts of persecution that continue to increase.

“Let us all do everything according to our ability to defend the oppressed and speak out against this injustice,” Zakir wrote.

He then quoted the Prophet’s hadith which reads, “A Muslim is a brother to other Muslims. He must not oppress and leave (who is being oppressed).

“Staying silent seeing the slaughter approved by this country means leaving our brothers and sisters,” he added. (T/RE1)
