Letter to George Bush to end Muslim suffering PDF Print E-mail

December 07, 2001

The honorable George W. Bush,
President of the United States of America,
The White House – 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.,
Washington, DC 20500.

Dear Mr. President,

May God's blessing be always with you, your family and the United States of America. Amen. I avail this opportunity to wish you and your family a merry Christmas and a peaceful and happy New Year.

The horrendous events of September 11 are both mind-boggling and soul-searching. It is the worst carnage America has suffered since the Civil War. The victims were not only from America, but from eighty-six countries of the world. No decent person can refrain from condemning such suicide attacks in the strongest terms. The American Muslim community has unanimously condemned the crimes.  America must use all resources to eliminate those responsible for the attacks, and rebuild Afghanistan. But parallel with the steps needed to achieve this should be efforts to remove the poverty and injustices (in Chechnya, Iraq, Kashmir and Palestine) that provide the conditions that create such despair in persons that they are moved to take such awful actions in the first place.      

Mr. President, there are certain events - turning points - that have shaped the history of nations – like the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. This infamous event marked the beginning of the rise of the United States of America, and now at the beginning of the 21st century, America is the sole super-power in the world. I feel that the infamous event of September 11 may mark another turning point in the history of America. In order to maintain the super-power status in the world, America must show certain compassion, moral power and leadership to change the evil mind-set or evil ideas of Messrs Putin, Vajpayee, Saddam and Sharon to end the occupation and oppression in Chechnya, Kashmir, Iraq and Palestine. President Nixon wrote in 'Beyond Peace', "Evil ideas inevitably fail because they are fundamentally at odds with human nature, but until they fail, they can do enormous damage to humanity." For example, Senator Jesse Helms wrote in WSJ, "… Putin's war against Chechnya has been more savage and devastating than the destruction Milosevic wrought on Kosovo... Mr. Putin's blood-thirsty war against Chechnya has caused the deaths of more than 30,000 noncombatants, the dislocation of 600,000 civilians, and illegal incarceration of 20,000 Chechens." Mr. Putin can solve the conflict by fulfilling the promise made by Mr. Yeltsin and General Lebid to grant freedom to Chechens. In Kashmir, Indian forces, in addition to all sorts of atrocities, have raped thousands of Kashmiri women as a part of Indian government's strategy to humiliate Muslims. The Kashmir conflict can end through the UN Resolutions. In Iraq, Saddam's oppression continues, but UN sanctions alone have killed over 400,000 children. One way to end Saddam's rule is to end the UN sanctions. In Palestine, Mr. Sharon's bloodthirsty occupation continues with death, destruction, suffering and humiliation of Palestinians. The Mid-East conflict can be solved thorough the UN Resolutions 242, 338 and 194. The worse kind of terrorism is the occupation. Sixty percent of terrorism is due to the Arab-Israeli conflict, and ten percent each due to Iraq, Kashmir and Chechnya. As suggested above, majority of the world terrorism can end if a courageous leader like you can take charge and end the injustices in these conflicts. Otherwise, in time, God will separate good from evil. If the most powerful country wages a struggle for freedom, do weak people have a similar right?  America's future status and its destiny lie in the just solution of the above-mentioned problems?
