My dear friends,

Assalamo-Alaikum. May the blessings of Allah be always with you and your families. Please refer to my letter dated May 28, 1998 in which I had promised to you that in the near future I will take a " DIRECT ACTION " on the painful issue of Kashmir. To fulfill that promise, I present for your information, consideration and action two letters that have been written to Mr. Bill CLINTON, President of the United States of America and Mr. Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations. A beginning has been made. Now it is up to you to take further ACTION. I propose we all meet in Washington at AMC's convention (Hilton Hotel - Crystal city, Virginia) to plan future action. I will be staying at the Hilton from June 24th to June 28, 1998. In a letter (copy enclosed) to Mr. Nawaz Sharif, prime minister of Pakistan, I had stated that "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." While Pakistan has to do most of the heavy lifting, it is absolutely necessary that we all play our part vigorously. We must strike while the iron is hot, otherwise the opportunity may be lost and we will regret it. Let us all try our best to help Pakistan to put an end to the sufferings of our brothers and sisters in the occupied Kashmir.

I know all of you are doing your best to help restore and maintain the respect and dignity of the Muslim Community of north America, and that is why you are the heroes of the community. Personally, I have been greatly inspired by DR. Allama Iqbal and Jamaluddin Afghani. Iqbal lived as a Derwesh who touched the heart and soul of men by his poetry that gave a message of HOPE and ACTION to Muslims, in fact to all mankind. Jamaluddin Afghani was a man of ACTION who moved from country to country - lecturing and discussing about his mission to bring about Muslim UNITY. He was brutally honest and up front and was not afraid to criticize the country's rulers who frequently asked him to leave their country. When I see the Muslims suffering in Kosovo, Kashmir, Palestine and other places, I feel a kind of angry sadness in my heart that our Muslim leaders can do a lot but they are just sitting there and doing little to end these sufferings. I can understand Afghani's frustrations and why he criticized the Muslim rulers and earned their wrath. I have absolute faith that if all the Muslim leaders learn to speak with ONE VOICE and take persistent ACTIONS, then we can end the sufferings of Kashmiris and Palestinians. I am sure that we, the Muslims of north America, CAN DO IT. Thanks and warm regards.
