Zakir funding

The Maharashtra police is of the opinion that it would be difficult to slap charges and build up a case against Zakir Naik since there is no evidence of any anti India sentiment in his speeches. However what has unearthed in the midst of these investigations is that Zakir Naik had received sizeable funds from Saudi Arabia and other Islamic countries to run his channel, Peace TV. The contributions he received were done without the knowledge of the Government. This could result in technical irregularities against him and he could be charged under FEMA or the Foreign Exchange Management Act. However it would be difficult to prove that he is an anti national or establish his terror links.
