In the notice, issued by Naik’s lawyer Mubin Solkar, the preacher has also levelled a few other charges against the channel including “creating enmity and hatred between religious communities” and hurting the “religious sentiments” of Naik and the Muslim community through Goswami’s statements on the channel.
