    Raja Naeem: Go back to Pakistan and file a petition to get Basic Rights in Pakistan If you are so much concerned about your faith. Don’t drag your faith in professional lifr of the people. It is people like you who bring bad name to faith. Please Please do us Muslims a favor and leave this country if you are not happy here:)
