Camera that he used is commonly used by amateurs.

Filming or photographing Saudi Pak Tower is not allowed by law without a

You are a British white guy (I have viewed your photo on your site). But if get
my beard grown long and wear an Arabic dress with a Muslim-cap on my head and

passing by people and most of them will feel fear because of me.
