His Excellency, Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad,
The Prime Minister of Malaysia,
Seri Perdana, Damansara,
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Your Excellency,

Assalamo-Alaikum. May Allah's blessing be always with you, your family and Malaysia.

It was in the month of November 1998 that I went to Kuala Lumpur, for the second time, with the purpose to discuss the matters concerning my ONE-MAN MISSION FOR MUSLIM UNITY, but it was not the will of Allah for the meeting to take place. Anyway, my job was to try and that I did. I enclose for your information a few copies of my appeal letters to world leaders since that time.    

A you know I have made a commitment to myself that, as long as I live, I will continue my efforts to find a Muslim leader who is willing to take up the challenge to unite the Muslim world to speak with ONE VOICE. I have explained in my appeal letters to you and others that I am not looking for a religious leader but any top leader of a Muslim country who can persuade all heads of the Muslim countries to develop a consensus to articulate the suffering of Muslims, particularly those who are under occupation and oppression by foreign forces, such as Palestine, Kashmir and Chechnya. At present, I am appealing to Pakistan's General Musharraf  to accept the challenge. You know that the General has enormous problems in Pakistan and he is deeply engrossed to clean the mess in that poor country, and the subject of Muslim Unity is very low on his agenda. I understand that there is little hope that he will accept the challenge, but I will not know unless I try. The problem is that every leader of a Muslim country is very occupied in the affairs of his or her own country for obvious reasons, so it is really difficult for the leader to assume  another massive undertaking such as the leadership role to unite the Muslim world. It is interesting to point out that  in 1998 I had a meeting in Washington with Mr. Moeen Qureshi, the former prime minister of Pakistan, and asked him if he was willing to take the challenge of the Muslim leadership.  He said that "It is difficult to accomplish much if you are not the head of a Muslim country." In other words if one is not in power then no one will listen to you. So I have the dilemma that no leader will accept the challenge because they are either out of power or in power but busy.
Your Excellency, I have tremendous respect for your honest service and dedication to your people and your country. Your legacy is set with your people and the reward of your work is safe with Allah. However, once again, I appeal to you to please take up the challenge to unite the Muslim world, after you have retired, and may be Mr. Moeen Qureshi can join you at the time. Anyway, I am grateful for your part to set up the Development-8 Group. May Allah give you excellent health and long life to serve Muslim causes. Amen. I hope to meet you - or at least see you from a distance - at the 37th ISNA convention in Chicago?  Thanks  and warm regards.
                
Sincerely,




Mohammed Khaliq Qureshi,
