The book "Comparative Criminal Justice Systems-Global and Local Perspective" is certainly full of context and contents, informative on all possible aspects, and enlarging mental horizon in this age when the world has become a global village. Islam is a divine guidance for all people of the world and they have the right to go deep into it and see how to avail its universal principles whereby dignity of mankind is maintained. Peace comes when justice is truly and sincerely administered. Shahid M. Shahidullah has touched almost all laws. Our students and teachers and those in actual field of administering justice are all doing their best efforts to remain in the first row and play a leading role with cooperation and coordination of all people of the world to maintain rule of law. Islam is the other name of civilized behaviour with sense of self accountability. Our laws must reflect this spirit and our interpretations must promote justice and fairness. Behind all deviation there is lack of the sense that when I cause injury physical or fiscal i forget that as I have the right to remain in peace and security from the hands of others, the others too have the right to remain so from my side. A plea is taken that law is not morality but it is forgotten that law is also not immorality. Unbridled freedom or blind actions doom the people in the ultimate. Purity in thought and purity in action couple with moderation and modesty makes the conduct attractive.
