Home secretary Theresa May bans radical preacher Zakir Naik from entering UK
by Christopher Hope
A radical preacher who claimed that "every Muslim should be a terrorist" has been banned from coming to Britain, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.
In her first major test of being tough on extremism, Theresa May, the new Home Secretary, said she was banning Zakir Naik from entering the UK.
Dr Naik, a 44-year-old Indian televangelist, had been due to give a series of lectures at arenas in Wembley Arena and Sheffield.
The Home Secretary can exclude or deport an individual if she thinks that their presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good.
