In the tweet, Khalid attached a screenshot of a Facebook user who responded to a Malay Mail Online article with the headline: “Zakir Naik: I’m a messenger of peace, my critics are terrorists”.

Khalid’s tweet is translated as: “@OfficialPcirc @PDRMsia Call up the person named below and ask him to explain what he meant by “Islam was never a religion of PEACE”.

The @OfficialPcirc Twitter account belongs to the police cyber investigation response centre of the Royal Malaysia Police, while @PDRMsia is the police’s official Twitter account.

The fugitive preacher is under investigation in India for alleged links to terrorism and money laundering.
