"(We are seeking) an order for the inspector-general of police (IGP) to arrest Zakir Naik immediately.

"(Also), an order to revoke the status of Zakir as a permanent resident of Malaysia, if this was granted, and an order to deport him immediately from Malaysia," Hindraf chairperson P Waythamoorthy said at the High Court in Kuala Lumpur today after the group filed the lawsuit.
