Some of the witnesses have given statements before the Magistrate, wherein they have stated as to how Naik had promoted enmity and hatred among the people of different religious beliefs, through his public utterances and how he had hurt the religious sentiments of followers of other sects or religions.

However, the source of this foreign income is yet to be identified.
