Appeal letter to Dr. Mahathir to lead Muslims to UNITY PDF Print E-mail

( The Qur'an  67 : 29 )   
IQBAL'S thoughts on Muslim UNITY and LEADERSHIP

God is inclined to bless but there is no seeker...To whom He should show the way? There is no LEADER.    
God gives Imperial status to those who deserve... And He reveals new worlds to those who explore.
Muslim Nation's gain and  loss is one and the same..They have one Prophet, one Religion and one Faith.
One Kaaba, one God, one Qur'an......It is not too much to expect if the Muslims were also one (UNITED). 


January 10, 1997
Dear Friends,

Assalamo-Alaikum. May Allah bless you with good health, happiness and prosperity. 

Since Hitler's Final Solution, Europe has not seen the savagery and brutality with which a quarter of a million innocent Muslims, mostly civilians, were massacred by the Serbs in Bosnia, and by Russians in Chechnya. The Christian world had sworn after the Holocaust "never again", but the Bosnian genocide proves the hollowness of their declaration, or perhaps it does not apply to Muslims. Only God knows the real intentions of the West. One fails to understand why the West will allow the slaughter of innocent people go on for three years. I believe it could be a wake up call for the Muslim world that once possessed honor, dignity, power and grandeur, but now feels impotent. The pictures of the Serbian atrocities still haunt us. After a great sacrifice, the Chechens have attained some freedom, but their country lies in ruins. The Afghanistan situation is so sad that one feels like crying for these honorable and brave people who, by their raw courage and indomitable will, broke the back of the evil empire and threw it into the trash bin of history. The Muslim world's neglect is allowing the Russians to slip back into the new Muslim countries of Central Asia. The Khurds continue to fight among themselves. Palestinians, Kashmiris, Algerians and Iraqis find no end in sight for their suffering. One sees the picture of a people sunk in misery and disgrace, a people who feel powerless, helpless and hopeless. It is not in despair that I paint that picture, but rather in concern, so that we take some concrete action now, before the next tragedy sets in. The present situation in Bosnia and Serbia may only be in a temporary state of suspension because the Serbian thug, Slobodan Milosevic, the man who started all the trouble, and his gang of ethnic cleansers, are still free to act in Bosnia or in Serbian controlled areas of Sanjak and Kosova. The Muslim world should not blame the West for this state of affairs but rather themselves. The problem is that Muslims are not united and there is no one to lead them. There are about 1.3 Billion (25 %) Muslims in the world, and this massive humanity can become a strong force if there is one leader who has the courage to come forward voluntarily and unite them into ONE VOICE. Since none has volunteered, we, the average Muslims, must find and appeal to a qualified Muslim leader to lead us. I believe that God will get this job done through the Muslim immigrants living in the United States and Canada. These immigrants, mostly of Indian sub-continent and the Middle East origin, have worked hard and have become successful and prosperous citizens in North America. Individually or collectively, they are establishing political organizations and communities for the benefit of the future generations of Muslims. I am an imperfect Muslim with many faults, but in 1995, I decided to do something and started my one-man mission for Muslim unity. Since then, I have contacted thousands of Muslims in the United States and Canada, and have asked them to write appeal letters to President Soeharto of Indonesia to accept the leadership challenge. During my recent trip (Oct/Nov 96) to Indonesia and Malaysia, I hoped for a reply from  President Soeharto but he will neither say yes nor no to the challenge. I tried my best for eighteen months, but there must be some reason why God wanted it this way. So, I must submit to His Will. Now, I am free to focus my attention, as planned, on Dato Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, the prime minister of Malaysia. Please note that Dr. Mahathir will not be asked to be the religious leader of the Muslim world, but to focus on the human and economic aspects of Muslims as follows: 1) uniting the Muslim world into one voice in order to help Muslims who are trapped in genocidal or oppressive situations in the world, and 2) organize, establish and develop economic relations among the Muslim countries.   

I have traveled to many major cities in the United States and Canada to attend conventions and meetings, to discuss the unity mission with many top Muslim intellectuals - scientists, medical doctors, professionals and religious leaders. I found that there is a unanimous feeling among the Muslims of North America that Dr. Mahathir (biography attached) is the leader who has the guts, strategic vision and character to lead the Muslims to Unity. When the intellectual segment of a society is unanimous, then that voice may be seen as the voice of God. So, please send your appeal letters to Dr. Mahathir at the address given below, requesting him to unite the Muslim countries into ONE VOICE at the United Nations :

  His Excellency, Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad,     
   Prime Minister of Malaysia,
  Jalan Dato Onn, 50502  Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
  Attention: Ms. Hamidah Mohd Yusoff

If you are busy or have no time to write your own letter, which is preferable, then you can use the enclosed appeal letter and the stamped envelope that I have prepared for your convenience. Before posting the letter, please write your return address on the envelope. Please note that I do not want to bring Muslim Unity by an extreme method of sword and blood, but rather by a peaceful method of pen and ink, based on a concept of simple common-sense, religious tolerance, non-violence, human decency and friendly persuasion.

Yours sincerely,


Mr. M. Khaliq Qureshi,
1317 Shamrock Lane,
Plano, Texas 75093, U.S.A.
