The Mullah and the Veil

This was sent to me by an Afghan friend living inn Kabul ………. :-)

One day Mulla Nasruddin was preaching about hijab (veil) saying,
"those who wear hijab will for sure go to paradise.
A woman stood and said I wear it both at home and outside.
Mulla  Nasruddin said, “Give her the key of paradise.”
Another woman said,
“I wear hijab when am out of home but I wear underwear at home.”
Mulla Nasruddin smiled and said, “Give her the key of my home !”


The illustration, by the way, I got from a blog:  ‘Fulla girl in a  Mulla World’
presumably sung to the tune: ’I’m a Barbie girl in a  Barbie world’ ….

George ka Pakistan

A Pakistani friend living in the States recommended a reality TV show about a Gora/foreigner ‘becoming Pakistani’ in 3 months 
Watch this on Youtube George ka pakistan 1/60 this guy is from Uk and wants to become Pakistani in three months with the help of Geo channel. Very interesting. Hope you will like it.  Arif
I actually have the DVD but have not watched it all    Here is the first part. It is in Urdu and English. It’s a good example of cross cultural engagement …..
