The Blind Export of Precious Donkey will lead to Extinction of this Genetic Resource
1. Donkey, the beautiful but very useful creature
2. Donkey, the wheel of the rural life
3. Donkey is the wheel of urban transport
4. Donkey is the companion of nomads and ensures immovability of the moving families
5. The unique biodiversity
6. Unfortunately, neglected and avoided
7. Treated in a bad way, no respect
8. But a strong and adapted Creature
9. The obedient and beautiful
10. A bad decision, a dark decision, leading to extinction
11. Planning to send to the hell
12. The hell of Chinese food and cosmetics
This cruel trade is already going on and flourishing.
But there are bold steps from some countries.
Unfortunately and sadly, my own country is going to export this useful creature to China. The China’s demand will never end for the donkey. There is the danger of extinction of this useful and precious animal in Pakistan. The poor people use the donkey to earn the livelihood. The rich people and greedy companies will make business and the poor will ruin. I hereby appeal to the policy makers to please re-think on the decision and study the social and economic aspects of the export of the precious donkey.
Thousands of donkey skins have already been exported to China (from Pakistan) under an unfair and silent trade. Who ate the meat of those killed and skinned donkeys? Nobody knows the reality of this dark and black business. The people of the country have the right to know the reality of this business. The link is provided below.
The author had been struggling to visualize the importance of this precious animal. Since last few years, the author in collaboration with a great team of like-minded people is celebrating world donkey day World Donkey Day (May 8). We also have a facebook page of World Donkey Day.
This sad news is circulating amid the onset of the world donkey day. This fact is making me so sad and unhappy. The jokes are making on social media regarding this burning issue. I appeal to the public of the Pakistan to please have a serious look on this matter of urgent nature.
Some more links about the donkey trade with China
The China is going to use CPEC for the import of donkey and other agricultural goods from Africa. A social and environmental impact studies are the utmost need to be done in Pakistan. Please do not go for blind decisions.
