Netizens give Zakir tongue-lashing over “prohibition of wishing Merry Christmas”

ISLAMIC preacher Dr Zakir Naik who is best known for his controversial remarks has practically added fuel to the fire by advising Muslims not to wish “Merry Christmas” to those who are celebrating the religious festivity.

On Friday (Dec 23), Zakir posted a photo caption on his Twitter page which is meant to insinuate that if a Muslim wishes Merry Christmas, then he/she is admitting that God/Allah is the biological father to Jesus/Isa”

Deservingly, the preacher was snubbed by netizens with user @SharaadKuttan greeting him, “Merry Christmas, Mr Zakir. May you embrace the spirit of love & compassion, and discard your habit of fostering hate & separation”.

Netizen @Dick_Lopez77 chided Zakir for ignoring the muhibbah spirit which binds multi-ethnical Malaysians together while @demoiselledian urged the police to act against Zakir for inciting religious hatred.

An angry @ruffleseed told Zakir to “get out of my country” while displaying Christmas greetings from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the Sultan of Selangor and the Johor Royal families (Sultan of Johor and Regent Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim.

Elsewhere, @jakeabdullah reminded Zakir that he does not need “religious policing” while @AndrewK07815441 told Zakir to behave like Malaysians while he is a guest in the country.

A sarcastic @Joshuadavid_MY told the Indian Prime Minister Office “to take your citizen back” for his inability to adapt to the Malaysian way of life. – Dec 25, 2022
