    I want to do my Ph. D degree from abroad because the government of Pakistan dosen’t allow me the research work particularly when I want to write down some thiong against Islam and Muslims specially in the perspactive of early age of Islam when the followers of Muhammad brutally killed the Jews of Arabia and made them salves, rapped their women even minor girls etc.
    if I would given the chance to study abroad, I could do my work more easily and could discover some very important facts about Islam and Muslims because I have done my Master’s degree in Islamic Culture in 2nd divission and have spent all my early life getting education in Religious Schools.
