Indian ‘hate preacher’ Zakir Naik charged with money laundering
Indian prosecutors have charged controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik with money laundering.
Mr Naik, who lives in exile, is accused of acquiring $28m (£21m) worth of criminal assets, a claim he denies.
Indian authorities have also accused him of spreading hate speech and inciting terrorism.
Mr Naik, 53, promotes a radical form of Islam on the channel Peace TV. It is banned in India but has an estimated 200 million viewers worldwide.
