Saudi are very generous people and hold Pakistan very dear to them like their own child. The guest represent the holiest land people and must be accorded the highest respect and dignity. Had there been no Arabs,there would not have been Islam, Pakistan and the reward of this and after life. Use this opportunity to ask soical, religious, financial concession reminding him of the ancestral bonds with Arab people.
