A businessman claims that God told him to build a fascinating project: a cross that will be higher than an average town's office buildings.

Parvez Henry Gill awoke with a start four years ago. "I said, 'I am going to build a big cross, higher than any in the world, in a Muslim country.'"

Actually, this cross will not be the tallest.  Regardless, Gill said, it will be a "symbol of God, and everyone who sees this will be worry-free."
