His Excellency,  Muhammad Nawaz Sharif,
The Prime Minister of Pakistan,
Islamabad, Pakistan.

Dear Mr. Prime Minister,

Assalamo-Alaikum. May the blessings of Allah be with you, your family and Pakistan. Ameen. First of all, I congratulate all the scientists and their associates who successfully conducted the underground nuclear tests in Pakistan - a job well done. But you deserve our special thanks and congratulations for providing the    resolute leadership at the most critical time in the history of Pakistan. Although it was better for Pakistan not to test and continue developing the nuclear weapons in secret, like Israel, still I agree with what you did.  
I write this letter for the following purpose:  It is only once in a generation that a rare opportunity is given to an individual or a leader or a nation that has the potential to change the course of history. The current situation in the Indian sub-continent is one of those golden opportunities that can result in the solution of the Kashmir problem, provided Pakistan acts FIRMLY. Quaid-i-Azam once ceased such an opportunity and stood firm to secure Pakistan. Kashmiris also had an opportunity during the 1965 war, but  they did not respond and lost a rare chance to free themselves from the clutches of India; and now they are paying a very heavy price in blood, tears and humiliation. In one of my letters to you (copy enclosed) I had stated "You can be Pakistan's next Quaid-i-Azam." The recent crisis proves you have guts to be a great leader to make history by arming yourself with "FAITH, UNITY and DISCIPLINE" to end suffering of Kashmiris.   

At present, the entire world's attention is focused on the sub-continent. Many of us in America have worked hard (enclosed letter) to change the thinking of the White House. I believe the recent statements by the First Lady and five calls by Mr. CLINTON prove that this White House is being FAIR to Palestinians and will be to Kashmiris - the next three years are very favorable for the solution of these problems. The leaders of  G-8 nations will soon meet to prepare a response to the nuclear threat posed by Pakistan and India. This will be your chance to convince the Group Eight leaders that a) India promised at the United Nations to hold a plebiscite to resolve the Kashmir dispute but they have gone back on their word; b) Canada supplied a nuclear reactor to India with the agreement it would be used for peaceful purposes only, but India broke the promise and used the material from the reactor to explode its first atomic bomb in 1974.  The Canadian Prime minister, Mr. Trudeau, said " Indra  Gandhi lied to me." c) All the Advisors of the US administration have recently stated that "India lied to us about the nuclear tests," but on the other hand, "Pakistan has always been up-front or honest with us." d) Indian leaders always refuse a third-party mediation to solve the Kashmir issue because they know they are wrong. In short, India's deceitful and aggressive ways have been exposed, but we need to hammer these points in the hearts and minds of the Western leaders. India's nuclear provocation has increased international sympathy for Pakistan and it can be transformed to our advantage in Kashmir. Pakistan's strategy should be to convince the West if they want to eliminate the risks of nuclear war in the sub-continent, then the West should arrange a plebiscite in Kashmir according to the  UN Resolutions. India will try to wiggle out of the current situation by offering a no-first-use weapon treaty with Pakistan; or a call for a global convention for nuclear disarmament, etc. Pakistan must remain focused on India's pledge to the UN to hold promised plebiscite in Kashmir. We should stand firm and not sign any agreement with India or West until all agree to the plebiscite within a specified time. Afterwards as a friend, Pakistan should sponsor India's membership to the UN Security Council. I hope the nuclear weapons will never be used, and India and Pakistan will learn to live in peace and friendship. Good luck.
