A short excerpt is below:

 If you win the case, what changes would you bring about in the community?

[Syedna TUS]: First and foremost, I would like to shift the scale back to piety and goodness, which is the essence of our faith. As a measure to end the corruption in the administration, I would institute a system of complaints, arbitration and dispute resolution that would be independent of the administration so people are not afraid of complaining. I would personally look into it...I would like to change how men treat women in cultures where women are abused. It should be a culture of mutual respect. That issue has not been addressed. but it needs to be addressed.
