"Do you really know what the arabic word Naik really means? If I was Mr Naik I would change my last name before visiting an Arab country. But again he is another wannabe Arab".

Dear dhimmi, do not worry.

If Naik really mean something offensive (this is not the case, if you really know). But Muslims have a tradition to correct each other if one is at mistake.

Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) has changed the names of many if they do not have good meanings.

My love to you.
