Christianity, Islam, and Pork: How Zakir Naik Destroyed Muhammad

In his lectures, Dr. Zakir Naik argues that pork is haraam (forbidden). To support his claim, he often quotes the Bible passages Leviticus 11:7-8 and Deuteronomy 14:8, which say that pig meat was unclean for the Jews. However, the very same passages also say that camel meat and rabbit meat were unclean. Why is this interesting? Because Muhammad and his companions ate both camel meat and rabbit meat. Hence, the passages Zakir Naik quotes actually condemn Muhammad.
