Hi Mansoor..Well you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned "taking the money out of our pockets"..How unfortunate we are to have to live in a monetarily driven society (world?) which forces us to negate our religions at times..but not without (notwithstanding) leeway in that regard.

Greed is still a human attribute and always will be. Do you want to leave Pakistan?. Don't come here (to Canada or the U.S.)..until you change but you probably never will. I've seen your posts..you are incorrigible. But I see where you're coming from..until you change your extreme beliefs..forget it..Try to lighten up a little (a lot?!) And I couldn't "put you up" if even you did want to come..perhaps your Islam brothers or Sisters somewhere here will, while our immigration laws are still not as strict as they should be even after the terrorist attacks in New York London and yes "etcetera" .. Latin I believe...

I'm on unemployment insurance.which gives me time to even bother to write you,but when I was working I worked HARD..I didn't have time to pray five times a day to Allah or even my own God...Money had to be made..Money wasn't God..Money was survival so I could be alive and still believe in God..Why do I care? Because I think that if I can convince at least one of you dorks to lighten up on your religion it might be worth it..

Hope to hear from you and take care...(almost in jest).. but Thanks for being able to speak english so we can talk. again, hang in there and stay out of danger if you can..

Bye for now..Brian from Canada..

Remember those lovely church bells Sunday mornings..imagine...a mosque with church bells...that's the only way it's going to work as far as I can see..hope it comes to be.. That's all I have to say Mansoor..you take 'er easy and all the best..
