'No' to suit urging for Zakir Naik's arrest, deportation

Modified 2 Mar 2017, 7:54 am

Human rights lawyer Syahredzan Johan has spoken out against the suit filed by 19 individuals, urging the government to arrest and deport controversial Indian preacher Zakir Naik.

He said that while some of the people who filed the suit are his friends, and he even wished good luck to lawyer Siti Kasim who was one of the plaintiffs in the case, he believe that such a suit went against the principle of free speech.
