  • SMS donation is a good idea. You people must try it in Bangladesh. Its really the fastest way to donate and collect donations. You (Mr. Shahzad Shams) donated your sterlings for Pakistan, for that I’m thankful as a Pakistani, although you claimed that those sterlings did not reach Pakistan because of the fraudulant collector of donations. Your post is comprehensive and full of knowledge. I got three lessons from your post.
    1. People in london can be as much fraudulant as people are in the other parts of the world. Civilisation and education did not change them.
    2. The purpose for which Pakistan was divided and Bangladesh was brought into being is still to achieve? You changed the name but failed to change the system. The same case is with us too. I remember a fellow from Bangladesh who was on military training in Pakistan and who met me in karachi in 2005. We came to a conclusion that the two nations, Pakistani and Bangali face the common problems like poverty education and food. So we’ve to agree upon a point that your politicians have the same attitude that our politicians have. The poor of the both nations are suffering and become poorer and the rich enjoy and become richer day by day.
    3. Bangladesh is suffering from poverty but Alhamdulillah your youth is courageous and can fight any of the challenges. All you people need an honest leader, we need too. May Allah make you and us, the great nations of the world. Aameen.
    Wish you best of luck.
