The Boy Who Got Paid With Fake Money Has Received Help From A University In Peshawar & This Is Pakistan

By Sannia Bilal | 14 Aug, 2018

Fake money was used to swindle an honest young child off his hard earned effort but a messiah swooped in to save the day and this is all that’s Pakistan – chaos yet kindness.


Since Bakra Eid is right around the corner, the spaces allocated for the retail of sacrificial animals can be seen filling up both with buyers and sellers.


So recently, there has been a video floating around where a distressed kid can be seen sobbing and requesting for help after being paid a sum of Rs. 25,000 for a goat that later turned out to be fake currency notes.


The heart wrenching video of this boy from Peshawar is prone to make anyone feel the grief in his voice.

Some people bought Bakra from this Boy and they gave him Fake Currency Notes..And he is weeping look at him.

And then, before we know it, we got updates that the boy has been tracked down and helped by the Chancellor of Iqra National University, Peshawar

He was gifted Rs.50,000 along with Eid clothes for him and his entire family.


Faith in Humanity, restored!



Not long after the news went viral, the internet had a melt down.

Some people had suggestions for a better future for the boy.


Others noticed how the people involved had some sort of an affiliation with PTI.


Then there was a stream of appreciations.





And, well… Some just felt the pride in being a Pakistani.


This just goes to show how much of a difference we can make for the people around us. Simple acts of kindness can go a long way. This Independence Day, lets all pledge to stand together and help the ones in need. For a better tomorrow.

We wish you all a very Happy Independence Day!
