Not a day passes with out one receiving an SMS enticing the nave to take part in Lotto and lotteries of other sort. Early this morning, I received one such SMS reading These are winning times. Write suchand such and send it to 5555. It will entitle you to win the Rs 50,000 Prize of the Day. Charges Rs. 8/= plus Sales Tax plus SMS charges. Now let me see; each mobile phone company has tens of millions of SIM holders and even by a rough estimate, 20 to 25 percent of them do take part in such scams. Imagine the daily windfall for the mobile companies after doling out the pittance of Rs. 50,000/-'only? Is it not a fit case for a suo moto action or intervention by the Shariat Court. This is, after all, un-Islamic?-COL. RIAZ JAFRI (RETD), Rawalpindi, February 19.
