Absar believes in researching on new dimensions of Criminal Law and considers it important as no society is free of Crime, but crime if met effectively with a swift and certain Penal procedure can considerable be curtailed. He has through his research added a new dimension to the Indian Penal Policy by effectively comparing it with Restorative Justice Theory which has gained momentum in the contemporary Era. Absar has also researched on the Islamic Criminal Laws and has compared it with some aspects of the Indian Law as well as laws of other progressive nations. His vision is to provide a blueprint of an effective criminal justice system where the punishment would be swift and certain and keeping in mind the utmost interests of victims of crime.
