You have to get a certificate about your putrid character from at least three of these agencies Mumbai police, NSG, FBI, RAW, CIA, Taliban, Al Qaida, Basques, KGB, Mossad, Savak, ISI, MI5, MI6 etc. Recommendation from Taliban or Al Qaida or ISI (they are all the same) would be very useful. 8) :evil:
