An American decided to write a book about famous Mosques around the world. So he bought a airplane ticket and took a journey to China.
On his first day he was inside a Mosque taking photographs when he noticed a golden phone mounted on the wall with a sign that read "$10,000 per call".
The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the phone was used for. The priest replied that it was a straight line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to Allah. The American thanked the priest and went along his way.
Next stop was in Japan. There, at a very large Mosque, he saw the same golden phone with the same symbol under it. He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he had seen in China and he asked a nearby Holy man what its purpose was.
He told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to Allah. "O.K., thank you," said the American.
He then traveled to India, Sri Lanka, Russia, Turkey, Israel, France, Germany,. In every Mosque he saw the same golden phone with the same "$10,000 per call" symbol under it.
The American, upon leaving Vermont decided to travel to Pakistan to see if Pakistanis had the same phone. He arrived in Pakistan, and again, in the first Mosque he entered, there was the same golden telephone, but this time the symbol under it read "One Rupee per call."
The American was amazed so he asked the priest about the sign. "Imam, I have traveled all over World and I have seen this same golden phone in many Mosques. I am told that it is a straight line to Heaven, but everywhere the cost was $10,000 per call."
"Why is it so cheap here?"
The priest smiled and answered, "You are in Pakistan at the present, young man - it is a local call".
