A cow wanders to Nashruddin's field and destroys his crops, and then he takes a staff and chases it, but the cow gets away. A week later Nashruddin sees the cow pulling a cart that belongs to one of the farmers. Without thinking twice he immediately approaches and beats the cow with a staff that he carries. The cow owner is confused with Nashruddin's actions towards his cow. He is so confused and asks to him, "Hei Nashruddin, why do you beat my cow up, what are its mistakes?" Nashruddin replies, "Hei fool, do not interfere with matters that you don't understand, the cow knows its mistakes."
