GST on donations?

I had this discussion with a friend yesterday and somebody also commented on this post at lahore metblog. The cell phone companies provide their subscribers the service to donate by sending SMS. The problem with it is that they also charge sales tax on every such SMS. Wasn’t donations and charity money free of all taxes? Are mobile companies trying to make money off this? Anyone from Mobilink, Warid, Telenor or Ufone reading this would care to explain?
