"In view of the ferment and general unrest prevailing among the Muslim
nations all over the world, we, the undersigned British and British-Indian
subjects of His Majesty, feel it our duty to urge respectfully on His Majesty's
Government the imperative necessity of a policy towards Turkey that would
lead to appeasement. This ferment, which in some parts had taken a violent
form of expression, is mainly due to the universal apprehension that it
is proposed to further dismember the Turkish Empire and to completely destroy
the free life and political power of the few remaining Muslim states."
