After banning televangelist Zakir Naik’s Peace TV, the government has now ordered closure of all ‘Peace Schools’.
‘Peace School’ renamed ‘Legend Academy’ as Bangladesh bans Zakir Naik’s Peace TV An education ministry statement released on Tuesday said that it has urged the home ministry to initiate ‘immediate measures’ to close all Peace Schools operating without any approval.
It has also ordered the Dhaka Education Board to cancel approval of the Peace International School at the capital’s Lalmatia.
The Bangladesh government does not have any specific information on how many schools are being operated with the word ‘Peace’ in their names.
The education board said they only approved temporarily an English medium school at Lalmatia to operate under the name Peace School. The others do not have any such permission.
The government has banned Peace TV after allegations were brought against Naik that at least two of the Gulshan attackers were inspired by him.
Born and living in Mumbai, 50-year-old Naik is a qualified doctor who left the medical profession to found the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), which runs the Islamic International School and NGO United Islamic Aid.
