Things will hopefully get better for our disgustingly treated animals – it was Mahatma Gandhi who famously once said that the level of a country’s civilisation can be gauged by its treatment of animals. Where does this leave Pakistan’s level of civilisation?
The column highlights some of the positive happenings for the animals of Karachi, such as the work of The Brooke organisation and the Richmond Crawford Hospital on M.A. Jinnah road. Brooke has recently set up operations in the city, and their mobile clinic team reaches a number of communities to help them take better care of their working equines. Richmond Crawford Hospital was founded by an English Commissioner over a century ago, and is located in the heart of the city. Cowasjee also mentions the Pakistan Animal Welfare Society in his column.
