A Sardarji, a Danish and a Pakistani got arrested consuming alcohol which is a severe offense in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime they are all sentenced 20 lashes each of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment.
The Sheik announced: "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has aske me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping."
1. The Danish was first in line, he thought for a while and then said: "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the pillow only; lasted 10 lashes & the Danish had to be carried away bleeding & crying with pain.2. The Sardarji was next up. After watching the Danish in horror he said smugly: "Please fix two pillows to my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes & the Sardarji was also led away whimpering loudly.
3. The Pakistani was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheikh turned to him and said: "You are from a most beautiful part of the world and your culture is one of the finest in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!"
"Thank you, your highness," Pakistani replied.
"In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes."
"Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave." The Sheik said with an admiring look on his face.
"If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. "And what is your second wish, ?" the Sheik aasked. Pakistani smiled and said, "Tie the Danish to my back"
