Mahesh: Peace TV is a flop show

in response to reader comment: islamic fundamentalism

Hello, Mahesh,

Do you take PEACE TV seriously? I watch it once in a while as comic relief from the other stuff dished out by the channels.

Let it be. I think Zakir Naik is doing more harm than good to Islam. I know some Muslims who in the early days, impressed by his showmanship and ability to quote chapter and verse from various scriptures, who were eager disciples are now embarrassed by his sugar-coated extremist views. What he is really doing is milking gullible believers into parting with their loose change, just like the other evangelical channels.

Think of it this way: that money would have gone to mosques and madrassas where even greater dangers lurk. Sometimes some of them pop up on his channel. Like Israr Ahmed. Just seeing his face on the TV screen gives me the heebi jeebees.

Regards

Plato
