“Propagation of other religions is prohibited. Even construction of any place of worship is prohibited,” he said.
Explaining why Islamic countries shouldn’t allow people of other faiths to build their places of worship, Naik gives an example. He says he asks Non-muslims who they will pick as a teacher for their school, if there are three teachers– The candidate who says 2+2=3, the one who says 2+2=6 or the one who says 2+2=4.

“Its fine if they convert, but if they preach against Islam then kill him.”
The ‘Islamic preacher’ says that music intoxicates a person and that it is like alcohol. He also says that other Muslim scholars who did not call it a sin were misguiding fellow Muslims.
Zakir Naik has aired his opinion even against homosexuality. He claimed that it is not genetic and occurs due to “sexual boredom”. He adds that “homosexuality is forbidden in Islam and the punishment for homosexuality is death.”
On keeping sex slaves
Although the world is outraged with the practice of having sex slaves that the Islamic State is adopting, Naik is however having a diagonally opposite view altogether claiming that it is permitted in Islam. “There are many verses in the Quran which say you can have sex with your wife and with whatever your right hand possesses,” he said in 2010.
On other religions
While he allows non-Muslims to ask questions to him first, and often quotes from Hindu scriptures and the Bible, some of statements show his supremacist side. He is reported to have said, “How can we allow this (building of churches or temples in an Islamic state) when their religion is wrong and when their worshipping is wrong?”
On suicide bombing
He once controversially said that suicide bombing may not be “haraam” if the situation demands. He mentioned Palestine as an example and said that it may be the last resort.
