He also stated-"In order to fight against communal forces & to trample their divisive ideas, Muslims should not resort for the same kind of approach, which would result in more damages to the community than solution; we have constitution, police, courts & other governmental machineries to restore our rights & to punish the wrongdoers; the same type of aggressions & communal ideologies is not going to benefit our community at all; this is what our Mujahid/Salafis' strong approach; we need to respect our system & at the same time, we need to combat against fascist forces, which are dangerous for the well-being of our country .....".
