A Rickshaw puller displayed an exemplary act of honesty as he informed the cops that he had found a bag of Rs 1.17 lakh lying on the road. 26-year-old Mohammed Aabid Qureshi earns Rs 200 to Rs 300 per day by pulling a loading rickshaw in the Walled City. Around 4 pm on Wednesday, he was returning after delivering some goods at a grocery store when he found a polybag full of money near Government Hostel circle. He decided to wait there to return it to its claimant. He prove that honesty does not depend on a person's education or status. With the intervention of social activist Sabir Qureshi, Aabid along with his wife Ameena and infant daughter, went to the office of Janga Sriniwas Rao, commissioner of police on Thursday to return the plastic bag containing Rs 1.17 lakh.
The commissioner applauded the honesty of this man who has never attended school saying he may be poor but he is a rich man in terms of honesty. Asked if he ever thought of keeping the whole money with him, Aabid said, "Imaandaari sabse badi niyamat hai saab, Pak Quran main likha hai jiska imaan hota hai woh jannat ka haqdaar hota hai (It is written in the holy Quran that a person who is honest is entitled to go to heaven)."
