Dear Mr. President
As a former citizen of Karachi, I am appalled to learn that the mayor of Karachi Mr. Niamatullah Khan has decided to poison Karachi’s 100,000 dogs in an effort to solve the city’s stray dogs problem. Please note that such measures are barbaric and ineffective. There are humane and more effective solutions available and were being presented to him by the concerned citizens of Karachi, and by the Pakistan Animal Welfare Society.
But the mayor has shown total disregard for their inputs and is resorting to the practices of medieval ages.
Please use the influence of your good office and help stop this insanity that will only encourage cruelty to animals and put Pakistan back on the map of backward and rogue states. Please also note that there is a direct linkage between crimes and cruelty to animals as has been researched and documented by the Psychologists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals USA.
Not too long ago, when I was visiting Karachi and promoted the ethics and philosophy of Animal Rights I was overwhelmed by the positive response of its citizen to the point that the prestigious Pakistani Journal SOUTHASIA put out two issues on Animal Rights where one of those was an exclusive on Animal Rights. The journal was then given commendation by the Ark Trust Inc. during its annual Genesis Award Ceremony at the Beverly Hills, California. USA. These awards are given to the media around the globe for promoting the cause for Animal Rights. At the same time Pakistan Art Council, Pakistan Medical Association and my own organization Engineers and Scientists for Animal Rights had sponsored an art exhibit where children had presented powerful graphics promoting compassion for animals. I was very much encouraged to see Pakistan moving in the direction where the developed nations are. The upcoming actions from the Mayor of Karachi is about the change all that
I hope you will take time out of your busy schedule and look into this matter
