The mullah and the donkey
A donkey strayed into the mosque of a mullah
who was known for his highly charged and vitriolic views on most matters religious. Upon seeing the donkey, he quickly grabbed a heavy staff and began beating the donkey out of the mosque. As the donkey ran out injured and frightened with the mullah
hot on its heels, the Wise Man of the village chanced to be walking past. He stopped the mullah
and asked him what why he was treating the donkey so harshly. The mullah
replied that it had entered the mosque. The Wise Man of the village shook his head and admonished the mullah.
“That’s just an animal. Its stupid and has no intelligence, that’s why it entered the mosque. After all,” the Wise Man of the village said, “you don’t see me coming to your mosque do you?”
