An investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct committed by the late Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias suggests the accusations are true.
The organisation he founded, Ravi Zacharias Ministries International (RZIM), took the unusual step of issuing a statement after receiving an interim report from the independent investigators.
The statement said, ‘In August 2020, allegations of sexual misconduct were made against our Founder, Ravi Zacharias.
‘Unfortunately, Ravi had died several months before we first learned of these allegations, so we were unable to explore them with him directly.
‘We engaged Miller & Martin PLLC to investigate these allegations, while also giving them wide latitude to go wherever their investigation might lead them.’
The statement added, ‘Sadly, the interim investigation update indicates this assessment of Ravi’s behaviour to be true—that he did indeed engage in sexual misconduct.
‘This misconduct is deeply troubling and wholly inconsistent with the man Ravi Zacharias presented both publicly and privately to so many over more than four decades of public ministry.’
