Tuesday July 30, 2013 0:26 AM, ummid.com News Network

Renowned Islamic Scholar and founder of a chain of Islamic International Schools in India, Dr Zakir Naik plans to start his first oversees branch by 2015 in Dubai, a media report said.

The school will have a unique blend of Islamic and modern studies, following the acclaimed curriculum being taught at his two Indian schools, designed to prepare children for the best of both worlds, Gulf News said in its report.

Dr. Zakir Naik was talking to Gulf News while he was in Dubai to receive Islamic Personality of the Year Award 2013.

Dr Naik is a renowned orator and Islamic scholar who became only the second Indian to receive the prestigious award, the first being the late Moulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi.

Dr Zakir, who is also a surgeon, is the founder and president of the Islamic Research Foundation. He has written two books on Islam and comparative religion. He is regarded as an exponent of the Salafi ideology.

Dr Naik's real claim to fame is his ability to give impromptu lectures on Islam and comparative religion and quote verbatim verses from religious scripture of all major religions of the world including the Quran and provide convincing answers to trick questions through scientific analysis and logic.

Dr Naik, who also runs a network of satellite channels and educational institutions, shared his plan to expand his TV network.

"We are planning to expand Peace TV in 10 major languages of the world, which is currently relayed in five languages. We will also set up our first overseas school in Dubai from September 2015", Gulf New quoted him as saying.
