He is praised by common man and law agencies to explicate Jihad & Terrorism and for voluntarily counselling radical youth, through Hyderabad city police, especially the Muslim youth, arrested by police for terrorist activities or detained as potential terrorists liked to ISIS etc. In India and abroad and in English and Urdu, he has openly condemned terrorism in the name of religion and especially in the name of Islam through his talks on Jihad & Terrorism.

‘Islamophobia’ is a new trend of perpetuated hate crimes against Muslims globally, more often, fuelled by ‘fake news’ and false allegations against Islamic Teachings and also against innocent Muslims. In our recent past, world witnessed some ‘Great Imperialistic Powers’ align to lead a Global war against ‘Terrorism’ directed mainly against a ‘Muslim Country’ based on ‘Wrong Intelligence’. This is one of the examples of such tragic incidents that resulted in ‘More Terrorism’ instead of ‘No Terrorism’. These wars by the imperialists, war mongers and arms’ traders has opened a Pandora Box of Terrorism throwing out of the box, ghosts like the ISIS and its like.
To contain impulses in such a world scenario, especially of the victimized Muslims and also of Non Muslims alike, the IREF, through its Islamic and educational activities, plays a vital role in the global society, by striving selflessly, as a non Governmental cohere, engaged to educate global masses to remain peaceful human beings and not let one’s emotions carry away one, to take the law in their hand.
IREF conducts ‘De-Radicalization’ interactive public talks regularly on local and international platforms to drub the loudmouth international media narcissists / poseurs and the critics and cynics of Islam and Muslims who keep swaggering against Muslim Religious Representatives that they never speak openly against terrorists and terrorism. IREF focuses mainly on public talks, Inter Religious public dialogues/public debates in India and abroad for a better and correct understanding of Islam through comparative religion, logic, reasoning and scientific approach on the criterion of Qur’an & Authentic Teachings of Muhammad[s].
IREF strives to induce mankind, otherwise adhering to mythological beliefs or atheism, about two placid fundamentals of Islam : Foremost - Laa Ilaaha IllAllah meaning There is No God Except Allah, an elucidation of every major/popular religion’s basic belief that the ‘God of Universe is only One’ and the Science’s Claim that an Energy regulates Universe. Islamic Concept of Belief in Allah totally rejects concepts of God Incarnate, Anthropomorphism & Pantheism.

Any person traveling from the Hyderabad airport to connect to the main city of Hyderabad has to travel by the Fly-over called as PVNR Airport Flyover. As such, the moment a person gets down the flyover while traveling from the international airport of Hyderabad or otherwise, then on the right side the Only Islamic Office he can find is the IREF which is just about 100 steps away from the flyover.
Similarly if any person is traveling from Maa Sahab Tank flyover towards the international Hyderabad airport’s flyover, then about a 100 steps before the Airport flyover begins, on the left side beside, Quba Bakery and Dell Computer Store is the IREF office.
