Hodja is a satirical Sufi figure, sometimes believed to have lived during the Middle Ages (around 13th century) and considered a populist philosopher and wise man, remembered for his funny stories and anecdotes.
One day when Hodja was going to mosque with his mullahs, he decided to ride on his donkey backwards.The mullahs asked,
Why are you riding on the donkey backwards?
You must be very uncomfortable
If I sat facing forward, you would be behind me.
If you went in front of me, I would be behind you.
Either way I would not be facing you. So, this is the most logical way !
