  • Conclusion:

  • To sum up, we can say that Zakir Naik, facing charges ranging from terror funding to money laundering, continues his mission even after being absconded from India. Before escaping from India, a chain of many organizations was formed in different parts of the country by Zakir Naik to spread his fanatic ideology. Consequently, it became active with his departure in his support.
  • Lkewise, these organizations campaigned in support of Zakir Naik across the country. Campaigns were run on social media in support of him. Hashtags like #ZakirsLetterToIndians, #Islamophobia_in_india, #muslimphobia_in_india were used extensively. So, that Zakir Naik’s image of mazlum i.e. victim can be created in the Muslim community and it can be referred to as atrocities on Muslims in India. This is also proved by the above analysis.
  • Moreover, All the above Twitter accounts of Zakir Naik follow each other.
  •  And, these accounts mentioned each other in several tweets. Many also retweeted each other’s tweets.
