Zahid talking about his own obsession with Zakir Naik

Muslims have been reminded not to be extremely obsessed with "individuals" because this can affect their faith in Islam.
Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said extreme obsession in practising Islam and the pillars of the religion are highly demanded by Islam.
"However, being extremely obsessive with 'individuals' other than Prophet Muhammad and parents can affect the faith of Muslims," he said at a programme to inculcate pure Islamic values at Masjid Al-Mizan, Kempas, near Johor Baru today.
The home minister said misinterpretation of the Quran and the Sunnah and going against the consensus of Muslim scholars could also lead to extreme obsession.
“This can be seen by the emergence of obsessed groups or cults. Such obsession can lead to things like harakiri in Japanese culture and suicide bombing in the name of jihad or holy war.
“As such, it is unfair to blame others of Islamophobia.”
Islamophobia among the non-Muslims came about because they misinterpret Islam based on the action of some Muslims who destroyed the good image of Islam.
As such, the desire of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to see a moderate Malaysia should always be supported.
Zahid said in the spirit of harmony and plurality of religions and races in the country, he hopes that the matter could be realised.
He then led magrib prayers after breaking fast with some 1,500 home ministry staff and 100 orphans and the poor in Kempas.
Also present were Defence Minister Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, Johor Menteri Besar Mohamed Khaled Nordin and Deputy Home Minister Nur Jazlan Mohamad.
