Question was ?Gurugranth me Allah ka naam kha ayaa hai.? Dr. Warsi told I got scared that question was pre-prepared, then Dr. warsi asked the same question to Dr. Zakir naik and Dr. Warsi he himself answered (he read the line from Gurugranth publicly, as Allah also given him too much knowledge), after that he asked Dr. Zakir naik that I will ask you another Question that, Dr. Warsi Asked ?Gurugranth me Allah ka naam 2nd time khaa ayaa aur kyu ayaa.?

Note: Agar iske alaawa bhi usake baare me kuch aur baat ho to aap log vo bhi likh denaa.
(1) The extracts quoted by the questioners about him indicate that he is having deviation; therefore one is most probably feared to fall in fitnah by listening his speeches.
(2, 3, 4, 6, 8) These matters are against Shariah, even some of them are unlawful and haram.
(5, 8) What do you mean by neecha dikhana? Please, clarify. Only the eligible ones are allowed to establish the truth of Islam and refute the false beliefs of others within Shariah limits.
(9) We are not aware of his maslak.
Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
