As this is the holy month of Ramadan, I figured that this would be the best topic for this article… my reasons are as follows. The establishment in question has withstood the test of time and the person has definitely withstood the test of many a questioning eye… both local and international…

The industry is Real Estate and whilst people know that the being is a success story who promises to deliver what he claims then recently the man has done a Bill Gates on Pakistan! When declared the most richest man Bill gates was faced with the great IRS and he had to pay billions in taxes… with fame and fortune came out the begging bowls of the government. His reaction was to give away 46% of all holdings of Microsoft in the form of charity thus instantly boosting share prices out of meeting his csr requirements and throwing himself into a tax free bracket. The army of lawyers designed the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation and now with trillions in earnings every year he evades taxes by doing charity.

In Pakistan our own karbala has happened and people within the real estate industry are crying tears of blood. Certain companies who have investors from A to Z and stretching from one end of P to another have all been under the fire of what to do. Mr. Hussain has clearly turned black into white and ensured that he will live forever as the man who cared too much.

A recent article in the nation depicted that behind the man stood an entire educated thought of patriotism and ferver to save this country… With the recent postings of this man’s achievements I decided to dig a little deeper. This Karbala is about the several if not thousands of cases pending in courts of law against the real estate demi god by people who have had their lands forcefully taken away. What has been presented as a man who gave 70% of his fortune to help Pakistan is known as a common baron of the land grabbing mafia and the general school of thought is that if you do charity then the money must be halal… how can you do charity with stolen money?

The funny thing is that this karbala has been caused by too much water and now it seems that all business men are grabbing live preservers to escape drowning…
