I found reference to following news item at Metroblogging Islamabad which in turn got the photo from Duffer’s blog.

Taxi driver Bilal Mehmood told that a person bought a goat and booked his taxi for going to Islamabad. He was following on his motorbike. At the decided place, the taxi driver couldn’t find the person. Owner of goat can plz contact at the given number.

This ad made us all proud. He also said a loud no to corruption. ATP’s other Inspiration Pakistan stories can be read here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. The original ad appeared in the daily Jang.

    I recall one such incident where a Pakistani Taxi driver in New York City returned a large sum left by an old lady in his cab. He was publically acknowledged by NY Mayor.
