Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said that speeches of Islamic preacher Zakir Naik were being examined by the government and suitable action will be taken.
Naik is under the scanner following disclosures that two of the five young militants who massacred 20 hostages, including an Indian, at a cafe in Bangladesh's capital Dhaka on July 1, drew their inspiration from his speeches.
"We have taken cognisance of Zakir Naik's speeches and necessary instructions have been issued in this regard. His speeches/CDs are being examined and whatever is justified will be done," Singh told the media in national capital.
"As far as the government of India is concerned, we will not compromise on terrorism at any cost," he added.
Naik is banned in Britain and Canada for his hate speeches aimed against other religions.
