One of them has a particular problem: “Have you ever had nightmares about people on the street looking at you weirdly because of there being a Wikipedia article on you, which says there are rumours you have killed one of your wives, something that you can't read yourself because you're illiterate? […] Well, Uruzgan's previous governor (from January 2002 to March 2006), Jan Mohammed Khan has had/is having that experience.”
