Good to read that Ali Najib Sidiki raising his voice on this issue >> Tribune Blogs >> Where’s my refund, Mr Zardari? >> Ironically it was quoted as the only charity they did claim and it was SZABIST – so one has to wonder where the “rest” of the looted money has disappeared off too.

The One Rupee Project is NOT a political party, but a NON-PROFIT movement and a silent revolution to make every Pakistani citizen self-sustainable in the next 10 years. And this is only possible when all of us unite, and contribute a little from our lives everyday.
YOU can BRING the change. YOU can BE the change. And to become part of this movement, we just ask you to contribute ONE rupee a day, everyday, to make this huge task possible.
The One Rupee Project wishes to mobilize individuals, who earn reasonable income (both salaried & self employed), in a movement to support the cause of eradicating poverty in the next 10 years. The group aims to generate funds through:
Organizations: Companies that can contribute by giving The One Rupee Project, one rupee on every transaction / sale generated.
Individuals: Who are willing to pay at least one rupee every day, a total of only Rs. 365 for a year
Can some thing be done to make the lives of citizens less miserable.

Every year ordinary citizens are asked to declare their ‘fiqh’ on a judicial stamped paper signed by a notary public and duly witnessed by two witnesses, so as to seek exemption from compulsory deduction of Zakat. This bureaucratic and misery adding document is called Form CZ-50. The zakat is not deducted if you state that your ‘fiqh’ is a recognized one (recognized by who?)
