Views on Terrorism and Extremism

He is of the view that Lashkar-e-Tayyiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad, Al-Qaida and ISIS are perpetrating atrocities, brazenly violating Islam in the name of Islam, Jihad and Khilafat. In a National seminar organised to condemn terrorism in New Delhi, Maulana Misbahi averred that the conference was planned to strongly, unambiguously and unequivocally declare all such pernicious and obnoxious acts as mindless violence of the extremists. “We also proclaim that they have nothing to do with the peace-loving and pluralistic Indian Muslims who are vehemently opposed to the handful terrorist goons”.[7]

Views about Country

He said that “Indian Muslims are against every form of terror whether physical or theoretical.” He also appealed to Muslims to take pride in being ‘Indians’ just as they feel proud to be Muslims. He said that Muslims in India are living in a safe haven as compared to many countries where Muslims constitute the majority.[8]

Illegal detention and release by Delhi Police

On 23 July'2015, Delhi Police special cell called him to Okhla Jamia Nagar police station and questioned him at another location, Zakir Nagar residents, led by local politicians, gathered in protest outside Jamia Nagar police station.His detention was protested by local residents of the area and later Police released him with respect and apologised[9] for the same.[10][11]

Welfare Party of India, national secretary, Dr SQR Ilyas said that Maulana devoted his life in religious scholastic and investigative tasks to serve the religion. He has been a part of several religious institutions and also an important member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board. His detention by Delhi Police is totally biased and regrettable.[12]

Views on Darul Qaza

Yaseen Akhtar Misbahi told that Sharia courts were very running for years. "If they help in solving the problems related to a particular community, no one should object."[13]
