The Strange Case of Dr. Naik and Mr. Farr

Zakir Naik
Yes, it’s quite a strange case. Charles Farr is Britain’s counter-terrorism chief, while Zakir Naik is a well known hate preacher who was expelled from the United Kingdom in June. Today, the latter will bring a legal challenge against the Secretary of State for the Home Department, commonly known as the Home Secretary, for excluding him from the country. As for the director of the Office of Security and Counter Terrorism, he is said to have corresponded with Naik, and to have told him that he (Farr) opposed the ban and would do all he could to “enable and encourage Dr. Naik’s entry to the UK.” Go here to learn more about the odd couple.
