@Shaami: After paying income tax, we pay gross sales tax and tax on every item we purchase. And now telecom sectors are ready to suck our blood out of our veins. If you are happy of paying that much taxes with no security in this country than hats of to you man, you are the biggest charity person I have ever seen on this earth, After Abdul Sattar Eidhi and Ansar Burni :P
