History[edit] Peace TV was launched on Arabsat on satellite BADR-3 in October 2006. It is also available free of charge from the LiveStation satellite television computerdiesh.[15] The channel received £1.25 million in 2009 from the Islamic Research Foundation International, a registered charity owned by Zakir Naik.[1] In 2011 the UK broadcasting regulator Ofcom investigated the channel for allegations of broadcasting extremist messages. Its programmes have labelled Jews as enemies of Islam and that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were an inside job.[1] In 2012, Ofcom ruled the channel broke broadcasting rules which states offensive comments should be justified by the context. It was ruled on the following statements which were broadcast on 8 March 2012 on the Dare to Ask programme:[16] One group of scholars, they say that if a Muslim, if he becomes a non-Muslim [inaudible] he should be put to death. There is another group of scholars who say that if a Muslim becomes a non-Muslim and propagates his new faith against Islam then he should be put to death. I tend to agree more with the second group of scholars, who say that a Muslim, if he becomes a non-Muslim and propagates his new faith against Islam, that is the time this penalty is applied. In response, PeaceTV said they were just repeating the teachings of the Quran.[16] The channel has been operating in India since 2006, but as of 2009 it failed to register with India's Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, making it illegal. Hathway stopped broadcasting the channel.[citation needed] Zakir Naik denies owning the station, and claims it is run by a Dubai-based company.[17] Peace TV was banned in India in 2012, because the government said it was broadcasting malicious anti-Indian content.[18][19] Zakir Naik has denied any links to such claims and hopes that the ban would be lifted.[20]


Awards and nominations[edit] In January 2013, Peace TV was nominated for the Responsible Media of the Year award at the British Muslim Awards.[21]


Controversies[edit] A major controversy erupted after the Dhaka Terror Attack in July 2016 when the investigations revealed that a terrorist involved in the brutal killings followed Zakir Naik's page on Facebook and was influenced by Naik's speeches[22] which seemed to be provocative in nature.[23][24] The terrorist had posted sermons of Zakir Naik on social media where Naik has urged "all Muslims to be terrorists" saying "if he is terrorizing a terrorist, he is following Islam".[25] Following this incident, the channel was banned in Bangladesh.[26] Hasanul Haq Inu, the Information Minister of Bangladesh reasoned that "Peace TV is not consistent with Muslim society, the Quran, Sunnah, Hadith, Bangladesh's Constitution, our culture, customs and rituals"[27] [28]
