A Sri Lankan cleaner returned a bag full of gold to its owner which he found while cleaning the room in Najran.
Such an act of honesty is certainly to be commended and was done by Prince Salman bin Sultan, president of the Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage (SCTNH).
He further told the SCTNH’s branch in Najran to thank the owner of the furnished apartment that he helped in returning the bag of gold.
A visitor stayed in a furnished apartment and at the time of check out forgot his bag of gold which the house cleaning boy found.
He informed the owner of the house about it who called the owner of the bag, the owner came back from Makkah to take the bag and profusely thanked the cleaning boy and the owner of the apartment.
The Sri Lankan expat was awarded a certificate to commend his honesty. If measures are taken to reward the honesty of honest people, people might begin to get inclined towards such acts of honesty.
Nobody is a thief by profession; people steal because they are forced to by their financial conditions. If the people are given better living conditions and rights, then they might not steal at all.
