“Important Robbery”


An interesting local news from Siraj al-Akhabr newspaper,  Vol. 3, Issue 11, February 11, 1914:

Important Robbery: A few days ago, in Chindawul area of Kabul, a group of burglars broke into the house of Mirza Mohammad Sharif Khan, a custom official in Dhaka border. They stole two-three hundred thousand rupees in cash, jewellery and other precious items. Mirza’s salary is 150 Kabuli rupees in a month!

And you still think that it was Karzai who invented corruption in Afghanistan?
