QOTD: The one by the Nawab of Kalabagh

It is said one day in the early 1960's, reports were received by 'Field Marshal' Ayub Khan  about his Governor of West Pakistan the much feared, Nawab of Kalabagh and his 'over zealousness' in settling scores with his enemies in his home town of Mianwali.

One day as news gradually leaked to him of the Generals displeasure. he said to a fellow Muslim Leaguer Aslam Khattak
' Khattak Khan, I do not take bribes , I do not womanise, I do not drink, I do not gamble. I am fair and just in the dispensation of justice, but may the Lord God forgive me I commit little cruelties in Mianwali!
