Lectures on Islam have been presented by Naik and twenty other Islamic speakers. He said Naik was a "hate-monger", and that his views did not deserve a public platform. Saleem Kidwai , Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Wales , stated that "people who know about him [Naik] know that he is one of the most uncontroversial persons you could find. He talks about the similarities between religions, and how should we work on the common ground between them", whilst also inviting Davies to discuss further with Naik personally in the conference. The conference went ahead, after the Cardiff council stated it was satisfied that he would not be preaching extremist views. He also claimed that his comments were taken out of context.

Lectures on Islam have been presented by Naik and twenty other Islamic speakers. He said Naik was a "hate-monger", and that his views did not deserve a public platform. Saleem Kidwai , Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Wales , stated that "people who know about him [Naik] know that he is one of the most uncontroversial persons you could find.
He talks about the similarities between religions, and how should we work on the common ground between them", whilst also inviting Davies to discuss further with Naik personally in the conference. The conference went ahead, after the Cardiff council stated it was satisfied that he would not be preaching extremist views.
He also claimed that his comments were taken out of context. Gambian cabinet ministers, religious leaders, students and thousands of people attended his lectures on subjects including "Terrorism and Jihad: an Islamic perspective", "religion in the right perspective", "Dawah or destruction?
With the initial support of the Government authority, the event went ahead as planned. According to Naik, Islam is a religion of reason and logic, and the Quran contains verses relating to science, which he says explains the number of Western converts. No other religious text or scripture claims this fact. He has condemned dancing and singing because he claims they are prohibited in Islam.
He has also recommended that the United States implements this logic in order to reduce criminality. He argues that "as far as the family is concerned, a man is the leader. So, he has the right", but he should beat his wife "lightly". The TV channels are to be blamed". For example, he has stated in that certain verses of the Quran accurately describe embryological development.
He suggested that, "We should use the same media to remove the misconceptions, misquotations, misinterpretations, and misrepresentations about Islam. International media, be it print, audio, video, or online, use a number of strategies to malign Islam by first picking up the black sheep of the Muslim community, and portraying them as though they are exemplary Muslims.
A year-old Muslim marrying a year-old girl willingly is a headline, but a year-old non-Muslim raping a six-year-old girl appears as brief news or filler. They say Islam does not give rights to women , and is an illogical religion. While Indians were fighting for their freedom , the British government was labelling them as terrorists; same activity, same people, but two different labels.
The same happened with Muslims who are labelled as terrorists in media, so we should look into backgrounds and reasons for an activity before labelling people. If anyone really wants to know how good Islam is, he or she has to study its authentic sources; the glorious Quran and Hadith rather than looking to its followers Muslims as is the case with a motorist whose reckless driving should be blamed for an accident rather than the latest Mercedes car he was driving.
The best exemplary Muslim is the last and final messenger prophet Muhammad , peace be upon him. We in Peace TV, for example, do not use such deceit. He said in unequivocal term that, even in Islamic Jihad, there are laid down rules and regulations as when and how to kill a person, which he noted, totally contradicts what is currently happening around the world, by some groups who claim to fight for Jihad.
Speaking of Osama bin Laden , when Naik was asked whether the former was a terrorist , he stated that he did not have an opinion since had not met him,  nor interrogated him, and is neither a friend nor an enemy. He believes in checking up information before passing it on to another person. Terrorism, killings and suicide bombing Later in , Naik said that he had been quoted out of context regarding the remarks on terrorism.
What is the meaning of the word terrorist? Terrorist by definition means a person who terrorises. So in this context every Muslim should be a terrorist to each and every anti-social element.
So in this context no Muslim should ever terrorise a single innocent human being. But, if suicide bombing is used as a tactic of war, then it may be permitted. Because they are anti-Islamic. I am totally against killing any innocent human being. He said, "We should say anti-Islamic state kills them as Quran affirms that whoever kills an innocent person is as if he kills all humanity, and he who saves a single person - disregard his religion, is like saving all humanity.
He accused the media of a "double-standard strategy" saying, "the same double-standard strategy is happening with a man related by nothing to Islam but by his name who killed over 50 gays in Orlando.
Further, he stated that he would not return to India while Modi remained in power, according to the example of the prophet Muhammad in Hijrah.

In the previous article, we studied the various similarities between the concepts of worship in Islam and in Hinduism as mentioned in their respective scriptures. We shall also examine certain similarities in the teachings of the scriptures of Hinduism and Islam. Non-Muslims as well as Muslims think that any war fought by any Muslim for whatever purpose, be it good or bad, is Jihad. For example.

Come to common terms As between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; That we associate no partners with Him; That we erect not, From among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah. Refer to Authentic Sources of that Religion Followers of major religions, whether it be Hinduism, Islam or Christianity, have divided themselves and their beliefs into various sects. It is not appropriate for one to try to understand a religion by observing the followers of that religion. Most followers may themselves not be aware of the correct teachings of their religion.
