NIA issued notice to Islamic preacher Zakir Naik asking him to appear before NIA headquarter on 30 March.

Naik's Islamic Research Foundation official has received the second notice on Friday. This notice will only add to the list of summons that has been issued to Naik by Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The previous notice had asked him to appear on March 14.

Naik has been accused along with other unnamed officials of IRF for promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion.

He is also accused of indulging in acts prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony besides various sections of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA).

Zakir Naik is an Indian Islamic preacher and the founder and president of the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF). He is also the founder of the 'comparative religion' Peace TV channel.
