Earlier Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad had said that his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi did not request him to return Zakir Naik.
Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said that PM Narendra Modi, whom he met in Russia during an economic forum earlier this month, made no extradition request for Zakir Naik despite an official notice from New Delhi.
Prime Minister Modi met the Malaysian Prime Minister on the sidelines of the fifth meeting of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) held in Vladivostok in the Russian Far East Region.
The development comes a day after the Malaysian authorities had summoned him over his alleged racial comments against the Hindus and Chinese.
According to the ED probe report, the IRF maintained various bank accounts in which funds from the donors were being deposited and they were controlled by Zakir Abdul Karim Naik, the 53-year-old Islamic evangelist's full name.
Islamic preacher Zaik Naik, who is living in Malaysia since 2016, says he is ready to return to India if the Supreme Court gives an assurance that he would not be arrested till his conviction
Investigations have revealed that Saharan Hashim, the main suspect in the serial blasts in Sri Lanka, used to follow the preaching of Naik. The April 21 Easter Sunday bombings killed at least 250 people.
The Enforcement Directorate had issued a provisional order for attachment of assets registered in the name of Naik's family members, located in Mumbai and Pune, under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Charged under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) two years ago, Naik was declared a proclaimed offender by the court in June 2017.
Naik's statement, issued through his PRO in Mumbai, came amid reports that he was being deported to India from Malaysia.
The state education department has ordered an inquiry and issued a show cause notice to the school in this regard.

The 51-year-old televangelist, who is currently abroad, is being probed under terror and money-laundering charges by the NIA.
This comes after the external affairs ministry recently July 13 said it had started the process to revoke the passport of Naik.
In a country that grants full freedom of expression and execution to the likes of Dr. Pravin Togadia and Sakshi Maharaj, it is specious to demand a ban on the preacher's activities.
It's not just non-Muslims and sensible, liberal, progressive-minded Muslims who have problems with the 'Islamic Media' mogul Zakir Naik. His share of critics is now rapidly expanding to include a growing number of influential ‘Islamic’ clerics
