The Centre has ordered a probe into the funding of Islamic preacher Zakir Naik’s NGO, Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), after his speeches came under scanner for inspiring the Dhaka attack in which Bangladeshi militants killed 22 people, mostly foreigners.

The Union Home Ministry is probing allegations that funds received by the NGO from abroad have been spent on political activities and “attracting” youths towards terror. All such activities are contrary to the provisions of the FCRA, under which the NGO is registered, and any violation invites punitive action.
