February 10, 1996

Your Excellency, Bapak Soeharto,
The President, Republic of Indonesia,
Jalan Cendana No. 8,
Jakarta, Indonesia.

Dear Bapak Soeharto,

Assalamo-Alaikum. May the blessings of Allah surround you and your family during the holy month of Ramadan, on the day of Idul Fitri, and always.

Since my last letter to your Excellency dated October 10, 1995, ( copy attached), I have continued my letter writing activities and have contacted, through mail or by visiting cities in the US and Canada, a large number of Muslims for their action. In addition, I have written appeal letters to most of the heads of the Muslim countries, (list attached).            

Your Excellency, the frightful acts of terrorism and torture of Muslims by Serbs in Bosnia are no longer seen now on our TV screens, and we tend to believe that they no longer exist; but daily the graves of innocent Muslims, the main victims of the genocide, are being discovered all over the country. There is nothing that we can do to erase the past, but our objective should be to prepare Muslims for the next crime before it happens. History does repeat itself because nations do not give up their goals simply because they have failed in the past. The leaders of the Islamic countries will, of course, make speeches in the United Nations but nothing concrete will be done unless one of the Muslim leaders decides that he is not going to sit here as an idle spectator. I think that I have said enough on the subject.

Dear Bapak Soeharto, although I have not formally met you, but you are my hero in the present Muslim world. I admire your class, you have a style that is unique and bold, very assertive but a kindness behind it, the deep commitment and being willing to listen to the people's concerns have made you a leader of exceptional quality, and that is what made it work in your country. The Muslim world has a common destiny with Indonesia and needs your help to unite Muslim countries at the United Nations into ONE VOICE. Please help.   

This letter marks the completion of the first phase of my commitment to the MISSION. The next step will be to organize a large delegation of the distinguished Muslims of north America to come to Jakarta to formally request you to please accept our appeal to assume the leadership role of the Muslim world. But before I start on this step, I must meet you to  find out your personal thoughts on the subject, so that I can discuss with you my future plans and the appropriate way to implement them. Therefore, I would like to request you to please spare some informal time for me for a meeting in Jakarta, anytime after Idul Fitri. It will be a great honor and distinct joy to meet you. I will anxiously wait for your reply.

Most respectfully yours,

M. Khaliq Qureshi,
1317 Shamrock Lane, Plano, Texas, 75093, U. S. A.
Tel (Res) : 214-380-5106.
