Zakir Naik, a radical Islamic preacher and fugitive, will be preaching Islam to the crowds at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. “Preacher Sheikh Zakir Naik is present in Qatar during the World Cup and will give many religious lectures throughout the tournament,” said Faisal Alhajri, a presenter on Qatar’s state-owned sports channel Alkass.

The radical preacher was barred from entering India in 2016 for “promoting or attempting to promote feelings of enmity, hatred, or ill-will between different religious communities and groups.”

Naik has been a runaway fugitive in Malaysia since 2017, after the Indian government charged him with money laundering.
