BULLDOZER Mahathir cannot cast aspersions on the legal system in India, it’s tantamount to contempt of court

https://www.malaymail.com/news/malaysia/2019/06/10/dr-m-just-like-australia-with-sirul-malaysia-can-refuse-sending-zakir-naik/1760811

There’s no basis for comparison between the Sirul and Zakir Naik cases.

Sirul was not extradited because Australia is against the death penalty in Malaysia.

Having established that Sirul won’t be hanged if sent back, Australia is ready to extradite him.

BULLDOZER Mahathir cannot cast aspersions on the legal system in India. That’s tantamount to contempt of court.

Zakir Naik should be ready to defend himself. The hate preacher has gone on record to state that he has faith in the court system in India. In a caveat, he added he doesn’t trust the Modi gov’t.

If Zakir Naik’s case is about money laundering, he doesn’t have to be present in court unless he wants to challenge the civil action to freeze, seize and forfeit ill-gotten gains.

If he challenges the civil action, criminal suits would be instituted. He has to be present in court.

India might not want Zakir Naik back. It’s Bangladesh which wants to hang him for allegedly inspiring terrorist attacks on a cafe in Dacca. They asked New Delhi to extradite him.

If Zakir Naik returns to India, New Delhi will hand him over to Bangladesh to be hanged.

Malaysia wants to keep Zakir Naik so that he will continue to inspire terrorist attacks elsewhere. This is something the UN Security Council can establish before imposing sanctions.

Mahathir is also playing politics with the Zakir Naik issue. Except for the Gen Y, the so-called Malays will not vote for PH, Zakir Naik or no Zakir Naik.

Malaysia won’t be able to hang on to Zakir Naik forever, PR or no PR.

It’s pointless keeping him in Malaysia. He preaches, allegedly hate, in English. Most so-called Malays, who make up his audience, don’t understand the language.

This is like so-called Malays listening to the Quran in Arabic and not understanding a word. They console themselves with the belief that it’s “holy noise”.

Jho Low not only said he doesn’t trust the Mahathir gov’t, he doesn’t trust the court system in Malaysia.

We can have faith in the courts in Malaysia.

Many people don’t have faith in the lawyers. Most of them are kangkung lawyers and/or loyar buruk. The legal profession in Malaysia is corrupt.

They lose out on technicalities and/or on the matter being academic.

The merits of Applications are never heard.
