Govt and people of Pakistan should realize how much we, overseas Pakistani, contribute to our country. What we get in return, robbed when we came out of the airport, family members kidnap for ransom. Not only that, we have to pay tax to Pakisani govt. when we call Pakistan. It's stange, no other counry charged tax on incoming calls. PPP govt. imposed those charges, I'm sure those charges either transferred to Zardari Swiss Account or PPP used those funds for election campign.
