    I salute this people; going overseas, living in cramped conditions for Arabs who mistreat them and look down upon them, all to send a half-decent wage to support their families back home.

    We chide Western countries for their immigration policies (deservedly so), but not many people talk about the absurd and inhumane policies of these gulf countries. They turn a blind eye whenever they need cheap labor, and round up these hard-working people when they no longer need their work.

    With the current situation in Pakistan its no only people but also the capital flight that is finding home in Dubai and neighbouring gulf states.
