A Joke with Bahlool  

haroon

Once Bahlool was sitting in the court of Haroon. In order to create some fun, one of the vazirs of the Caliph said this to him:

"Congratulations O Bahlool! I understand the Caliph Haroon has decided to entrust to you the kingdom and rulership over the animals of the cocks and the pigs etc."

Promptly Bahlool reacted to this by saying:

"Be careful not to go against any rule in my kingdom. I shall be very strict to those going against. But I shall be very considerate to those obeying me and providing more grass and water."

On hearing this, Haroon was much amused. He laughed and laughed till he fell backward. What a logic and prompt way Bahlool always responded to any matter put forward to him.

"Throw a stone in return from where one comes to you because evil can be met only with evil."
