Pakistani prejudice

My Pakistani friend Imran has chronicled another case of Pakistani prejudice on his blog - here:
# Sent $100 to aunt in Pakistan via on Jan 27. I go to western union agents all the time but it was cold so what the hell. As they say, simple as 1, 2, 3. No mention of showing any ID. CC was enough.
# Right after I sent, got an email to talk to them else money will not be transfered, I did. They said money is sent.
# Aunt in Pakistan went to collect on weekend and was told money is not available.
#Ten minutes later, spoke with a lady who said email my place of birth, photoID and MTCN (Money Tranfer Control Number) number @ My name in some list of ban list (Probably terrorsits!) prohibited to send money from America.
Oh and this guy isn't in Pakistan, he's in Toronto. Brutal.
