Sense of Pride

Saw this pic on Duffer’s blog:

(Taxi driver Bilal Mehmood told that a person bought a goat and booked his taxi for going to Islamabad. He was following on his motorbike. At the decided place, the taxi driver couldn’t find the person.  Owner of goat can plz contact at the given number)

And I felt so proud.

He said a loud No to corruption, innit?

    I read this as a news item in The News with all the detais of the case. It is a commendable act of honesty. Under normal circumstances it will be considered a small act of honesty but for us living in a corrupt state it is a huge act of trail blazing honesty.

    This taxi driver has done a greater Qurbani by trying to return the Bakra than he would have done by slaughtering it in the name of Allah. According to me he has done a real Qurbani.

    Maybe the bakra was sick and diseased :P

    There are no small acts of kindness, they’re all big!

    Lolz crazy monkey ;P

    And I totally agree with you Kabirdas … though technically the qurbani of bakra won’t be correct if he’d have been doing it for Allah. For people … well they are after show off these days, anyway.

    Allah bless him!
