– WAS THE THIEF INNOCENT –
One day Nasreddin Hodja’s donkey was stolen. His neigbours and his friend heard about that. They came on front of Hodja’s house for meeting him. Nasreddin Hodja hoped to hear good words in this difficult situation. They begun to talk and they were blaming him.
His friend told-You should have locked the door of stable…
One of his neighbor told- Didn’t you hear even a clinking noise…?
Another neighbor – You probably didn’t tie the donkey well…
Nasreddin Hodja listened patiently for minutes and hours, finally said, enough your critics, you all accused me by justifiying all guilt is because of me. Be fair a little please, was the thief guiltless?
