You see it is very necessary to have muslims in your country.. TheY contribute very much the the growth of the country.. Let me highlight some of the key areas in which they contribute.

1) Population. I dont need to explain how. But when the holy prophet doesnt even allow the practice of coitus interruptus then i guess talking about birth control to his followers is like teaching democracy to musharraf.

2) Education : Dont you think the invaluable lessons in Politics , Science, History and Humanity taught in the madrassas round the corner provide a very firm value system and moulds the young minds. Heck , what i wouldnt pay to learn how to fire a stinger missile, assemble IEDs, go on good will tours to Pakistan, Afghanistan & see the scenic Tora Bora mountainsetc.

3) Employement : Lets face it, there would be very less jobs if there werent muslims in the country.. What would be the need of organistaions Like SWAT, Anti Terrorist Force ( India ). Intelligence dept like FBI, RAW, MOSSAD etc.. darn even the airports will have less openings for security checker, Jail athourities, etc.

4) Tourism : Who wouldn't want his country to be visited by foriegners and increase the foriegn revenue??. Rest assurred, you willhave regular streams of visitors coming in from Pakistan, Uzbekestan , Egypt, Libiya, Sudan etc. You can see these people visiting thier brethen in your country thus increasing the foriegn exchange ( They are usually very well funded by Oil Money ofcourse) . They just want to visit the important places in the country to blow of some steam.. ( If you dont mind the big bang which usually comes before the blowing of the steam )

Let me know , with all the good things Islam and muslims give back to the country they live in , do you still want to ban Islam?
