The Pakistani nation spent Rs. 22 Billion "on ejjumakashun of his yungsturrz" for the WHOLE YEAR 2008 and spent approximately Rs 50 Billion on Qurbani animals on ONE SINGLE DAY of eid-ul-adha.
The day of sacrifice! We literaly sacrifice our young at the alter of... hmm god knows what the fuck we sacrifice our young for.
Here are the calcs (source Jang News and World Report Akhbar Thingamajiggy):
There are 5 million skins projected to be collected.
1 goat skin = Rs. 250 avg.
1 cow skin = Rs. 1200 avg.
Assume goat:cow ratio is 75:25 percent.
Total money pot = 3750000 * 250 + 1250000 * 1200 = 937500000 + 1500000000 = Rs. 2,437,500,000
Total money from this Eid skins = Rs. 2.5 Billion. (USD $32,939,189)
Total cost of qurbani animals (if skin is 10% of total animal) = Rs. 25 Billion.
Since the price of an animal's raw skin is around 5% of total cost, the total amount spent by Pakistani Muslims on this Baqr-Eid 2008 comes out to be around... are you sitting down?
Rs. 50 Billion (Fifty Billion/Urrab Rupees!!!!) in 1 DAY
Compare that to ....
Pakistan's Education budget for 2008 = Rs. 22 Billion? (I think)
