Mumbai, July 7 (ANI): Aamir Khan, one of the most rational celebrities in the B-Town, today said terrorists have nothing to do with religion.

"According to me, there's no comparison between terrorism and religion; they have nothing to do with religion. May they be Sikh, Hindu, Muslim or Christian, they actually have nothing to do with religion, although they shout in the name of religion. If they would have actually loved their religion, they would have known that religion teaches us love," he told media here when quizzed on controversial Indian Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.

For the unversed, according to a Bangladesh newspaper, militant Rohan Imtiaz, son of an Awami League leader and one of the perpetrators of last week Dhaka's diplomatic zone terror attack quoted the controversial Indian Islamic preacher Zakir Naik.

Naik, during his lecture on Peace TV, reportedly urged all Muslims to become terrorists.

Naik, a popular but controversial Islamic orator and founder of the Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation, is banned in UK and Canada for his hate speeches. He is among 16 banned Islamic scholars in Malaysia.

Reportedly, Shiv Sena on today demanded a complete ban on his organisation. Members of Raza academy, a Muslim instituition, in Mumbai staged a protest against Dhaka attacks and Naik after morning prayers today. (ANI)
