    Having lived and worked in seven countries in the Pacific, Middle East, Africa, Canada, England, and USA, I found the Middle East the worst place to live for a Pakistani. It does not matter if he is educated professional or a laborer, US citizen or Pakistani passport holder. Arabs, our so called muslim brothers, are the worst employers and practice discrimination that is unheard of in Europe or North America. Every person of Pakistani origin is a Maskeen/Rafiq and open to abuse.

    Of couse the blame must rest on us and not on Arabs for keeping my fellow Pakistani origin people in inhuman conditions. We (not the government) have not been able to provide the Pakistani citizens the basic education which could prevent this bizzare happenings.
