None. No options will work. You need to patiently wait until all security checks concerning your person are completed. It often takes close to a year or more (especially so if you've been named after your prophet and/or your last name is "Khan". )

You can follow up with the Embassy, however, after a delay of 8 1/2 months, it appears unlikely that the Embassy will issue you a visitor's visa.
