A Pakistani labourer is winning hearts online after he returned a pair of gold earrings to its owners. The touching story was shared on Twitter by a man who praised his kind gesture that has melted hearts of several users across the border as well.
According to Twitter user Zeeshan Khattak, the man working on an adjacent plot of his home walked up to his doors to ask if they had lost anything of gold ever.
“Today our door was knocked. My brother went out and this labour asked if we had lost something of gold ever? [sic]” he wrote adding that the plot is under construction at the moment.
Hearing his question, Khattak’s brother answered that the family has lost a pair of earrings but way back in 2015. Listening to the answer, the labourer, who hasn’t been identified pulled it out of his pocket and handed over to the family.
Attach plot to our home is under construction. Today our door was knocked. My brother went out and this labor asked if we had lost something of gold ever? My bro said, yes, one ear ring of a pair, but that was back in 2015. He pulled it out of his pocket and gave it to us 🙏 pic.twitter.com/YFNdg1FRxu— Zeeshan Khattak (@khattak) November 15, 2018
Impressed by his honesty, they wanted to reward the labourer but he turned them down. “Offered him money. He refused. Kept the money forcefully in his pocket but he returned it back with the same enthusiasm and said, ‘I’ll wait for the God’s reward’,” Khattar wrote in a tweet replying to a user who asked to share details so that they could reward him.

Why do I feel that materialistic growth most often makes us insecure & takes away values of being pure at heart.— Major D P Singh (@MajDPSingh) November 16, 2018
