Mrs G and I plan to try to help Pakistan.
Pakistan is a dictatorship, it’s North West Frontier is a base for the Taliban and probably bin Laden, its treatment of women is awful, it showed the nutters in Iran how to make nukes, and it’s a training ground for Brit terrorists of Pakistani ancestry.
Its army is fighting Islamic terrorists:
A Pakistani commander was killed today after troops came under heavy fire from students and suspected militants holed up in a besieged mosque in the capital, Islamabad.
A lieutenant-colonel was killed as his troops attempted to blow holes in the walls of the mosque compound in the hope that hundreds of women and children could escape.
In our part of London, most Brits from Pakistan are decent and hard working people.
Pakistani women are fighting for their freedom, just as our great grandmothers did.
So we’ve decided to help and we’re donating money to this:
The organization was set up by a group of citizens, concerned by the dismal state of education in Pakistan. TCF runs its network of well-managed, purpose-built schools in urban slums and rural areas across Pakistan and serves all persons and communities on a completely non-discriminatory basis.
£6,000 keeps an entire school running for a year.
This isn’t a solicitation, and in particular we still have complete a due diligence to make sure it isn’t a front.
But we think the principle is sound – where we can be assured the money won’t be pinched, we should help educate Muslim kids, the girls in particular.
