Appeal to Dr. Mahathir, to lead Muslim countries to Unity PDF Print E-mail
October 10, 1996

His Excellency, Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad,
Prime Minister of Malaysia,
Jalan Dato' Onn, 50502 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Your Excellency,

Assalamo-Alaikum. May the blessings of Almighty God be always with you, your family and your beloved country, Malaysia. On October 12, 1995, I had sent an appeal letter (copy attached) on Muslim Unity to the Malaysian ambassador in Washington. I had requested the ambassador to forward the letter to your excellency, and I hope that you had an opportunity to read the letter. In one of my many appeal letters, I had written that " Dr. Mahathir has been the Prime Minister of Malaysia for the last seventeen years." In fact, you have been the Prime Minister since 1981, but I had (innocently) given you a credit of three years because you were the deputy Prime Minister during the period of Hussein Onn.

Your excellency, like every normal human being, I was shaken by the Bosnian genocide. The tragedy is that the Democratic West had the means to stop the slaughter but they kept quiet till it was too late for about 200,000 innocent Muslims. The west's inaction has been both criminal and cowardly. Imagine that Jews were being massacred in Bosnia by Serbs. I think the Israeli air force would have found a way to reach Bosnia and their commandos would have smashed the war fighting capabilities of Serbia's Nazi criminals and had delivered them either to prison or to gallows. I believe that if one billion Muslims (20 % of mankind) were united and there was a gutsy leader, like your excellency, to lead them, then this tragedy would not have been allowed to go on for over three years. Rather than blaming others, I have decided to step forward and do something about it, and hence my one-man mission on Muslim Unity. The attached letters will give you an idea of my activities and thinking on some issues concerning the Muslim world. 

When I started the mission, the first leader that I wanted to approach was your excellency. I had a detailed discussion on the subject with some of my key friends in Dallas and Calgary. It was decided that I should first start with President Soeharto who is the leader of the largest Muslim country in the world. This process will give us an opportunity to find out the reaction of Muslims in north America. I am delighted to report that Dr. Seri Mahathir Mohamad was the unanimous choice. Therefore, the stage is now set to bring to your excellency's attention the overwhelming desire of the north American Muslims to request you to take up the challenge of uniting the Muslim countries into one voice at the United Nations. I hope that your excellency will give me an opportunity to have a meeting with you to present the case. In the near future, I plan to contact Ms. Hamidah Mohd Yusof  to arrange an appointment with your excellency. Thanks and warm regards.
