Mangaluru police have booked a suo motu case against a man for writing a derogatory post on the city police commissioner, after the police banned Dr Zakir Naik from entering the city.

A man named Akbar Kudroli, who is reportedly an NRI, posted derogatory comments against Mangaluru Police Commissioner S Murugan and his family, reported The Hindu.

The comment was reportedly posted on the Muslim Yuva Sena’s Facebook account, managed by Kudroli.

This came two days after the police passed an order under section 144 barring the televangelist from entering the city from 31 December to 6 January, 2016.

Dr. Zakir Naik is a well-known Islamic orator and founder of the Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation. He was to deliver a talk on Islam in a convention organised by South Karnataka Salafi Movement (SKSM), scheduled for 3 January at Nehru Maidan in the city.

A day after the police passed the order against Naik’s entry, they also banned Vishwa Hindu Parishad president Praveen Togadia from entering the city. He was to attend a convention on January 3 organised by members of Mangaluru Bajrang Dal to discuss various issues pertaining to cow slaughter, love jihad and attacks on Hindu activists.
