King of the jungle: Armed force part of proposed legislation to guard wildlife in KPK!


Oct 17, 2014
The houbara hunting is wrong on many levels.
1 Damage to the wildlife, which is not just a property of Pakistan but the whole human race.
2 The Arabs see you as slaves, who bend over even when not asked for. The bad image amongst Muslims of Pakistanis comes from this. Especially Arabs think that you are to be treated like this.
3 Sexual exploitation of Pakistani boys and girls.
The houbara is considered as aphrodisiac, so after eating it guess what happens, and if the Arab princes haven't brought their consorts, guess what else they have permits for. I think a lot of jism faroshi happens along with this houbara hunting. Arab princes are known for this kind of behavior, they are among the most decadent people in the world, still living in the world of the "perfumed garden"
and to extreme indians are no exception,.. :D no surprise you wanna talk just about Pakistan :) baniya mindset.. :omghaha:

Those people who are saying that law and order should be improved first should realize that the money from this illegal trade is used by terrorists. In Assam, rhino poachers were found to have links with ULFA. How else would they get their weapons?
Arming the park authorities is a great step by IK. I think IK has a different plan for Pakistan. Only wish he would make KPK such that whole of Pakistan would understand, instead of this dharna business.
Regarding the houbara thing
At least some Pakistani people are aware now.

I wish we can compete in wildlife protection.
Project Tiger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Also Google Salman Khan black buck hunting case. In India we take wildlife preservation seriously.
And please no more India posts, this topic is about good steps taken by KPK government and terrible policies of Pakistan federal government.

Lolz than vote for him and find out.

His life as cricketer and politicians should be enough to proof u wrong.

I hope that IK becomes PM after the next elections, so I can see him bow before USA with his tail between his legs, just like all his predecessors. They all play the same game. Fire and anger at USA before elections, all calm and obedient afterwards. :D

The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Wildlife and Biodiversity Bill 2014 proposes reforms in a sector largely neglected for decades. The draft was tabled in the provincial assembly on November 24, and once passed, it will overwrite the Wildlife Act 1975.

K-P chief conservator Syed Mubarak Ali Shah told The Express Tribune an up-to-date law is the need of the hour and the new draft resolves all loopholes in the previous legislation. According to Section 4 (1) of the bill, a copy of which lies with The Express Tribune, the entire wildlife establishment, excluding ministerial staff, shall be deemed a “wildlife force and constituted in a prescribed manner”.

Shah confirmed the force will come under the wildlife department after the enactment of this law. He added the previous legislation dates back to 1975 and with the course of time has seen major challenges.

New musketeers

Members of the wildlife force will have their own uniform and will be provided with sophisticated equipment, arms and communication systems. Wildlife officers will be authorised to use force as and where they deem necessary seizing property, recovering wildlife, and producing, detaining or taking into custody any offender who acts against the protection, preservation, conservation and management guidelines, as laid down by the law.

The force will also be entitled to use force in intercepting, checking, apprehending, searching or preventing the escape of suspects.

However, they will only be allowed to use arms under necessary conditions of self-defence or in following directives of a superior not below the rank of a wildlife range officer.

Officers will also be able to bear testimony before the court within the listings of the Code of Criminal Procedure.

A comprehensive overhaul

Once the bill is approved, a K-P wildlife and biodiversity board will be formed. Headed by the chief minister, the board will also have a wildlife fund.

The law will provide for declaring and demarcating natural heritage sites with a view to protecting natural, physical, and biological formations that are of “outstanding national or global value from an aesthetic or scientific point of view”. The board will be able to declare and define any such area and regulate its management, autonomously.

The bill also entitles the government to declare any area it deems right to be a wildlife sanctuary, through a notification in the official gazette. Furthermore, the bill lays down participatory wildlife management guidelines wherein each protected area will be governed by a conservation committee.

Section 11 states that all wild animals, free ranging or captive, tamed or untamed found within the territorial jurisdiction of the province shall be the property of the government. In case of misuse or abuse of government property, wildlife officers shall be able to exercise powers under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1890.

These listings are seen as a major boost of the cause of preventing unwarranted poaching and preserving endangered species and the ecosystem.

Protection of species

The third schedule of the law contains a comprehensive list of animals that are to be protected. They can neither be hunted down nor taken captive. A violation will lead to criminal prosecution.

Lastly, the fourth schedule lays down the nature of offences and penalties.

It has set a sentence of three years and a fine of Rs45,000 for harming “Markhor, Urial, Ibex, Musk deer, Goral, Chinkara, Barking deer, Hog deer, black and brown bear and leopard. While a year in the slammer and Rs45,000 is the penalty for hunting the Siberian crane, Saker and Peregrine falcon.

King of the jungle: Armed force part of proposed legislation to guard wildlife – The Express Tribune

Meanwhile elsewhere in Pakistan:

KARACHI: The federal government has issued at least 29 special permits to royal family members of the Gulf states — the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar and the Kingdom of Bahrain — for hunting the internationally protected houbara bustard in Pakistan, it emerged on Saturday.

Pakistan is a signatory to various international nature conservation agreements that call for protection of rare species and national laws also ban houbara bustard hunting, yet special permits are issued to foreigners in violation of local laws and international commitments.

View attachment 157935

Sources said the government went back on the commitment it made last year that “Pakistan will observe a moratorium on hunting during the 2014-15 season to replenish houbara bustard stocks”.

The permit holders had even been informed about it. But after the approval of prime minister Nawaz Sharif, deputy chief of protocol of the foreign office Muazzam Ali issued the permits for the year 2014-15 on Nov 1, 2014.

The sources said that at least one president, one king, one Emir and one ruler besides two crown princes, the father and an uncle of country heads concerned are among those allowed to hunt the internationally protected houbara bustard, meat of which is considered to have aphrodisiac qualities.

The dignitary who has been given the largest area in the three provinces — Sindh, Punjab and Balochistan — is UAE president and Abu Dhabi ruler Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan. As many as 11 permits — the largest number of permits issued to a Gulf state — have been given to members of Qatar’s royal family.

This is the first time that an area in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has been allocated for houbara hunting.

The federal government has not sent a code of conduct — which mentions number of birds to be hunted, hunting method, whether permit is person specific or not — to provincial wildlife departments, giving a free hand to the Arab sheikhs to hunt as many birds as they can.

The move is perhaps aimed at avoiding an embarrassing situation like the one that happened last year when a Balochistan wildlife department report that Saudi prince Fahd had hunted 2,100 houbara bustards, violating the bag limit of 100 birds, created an international uproar after it had been highlighted in the media.

The countries and the names of hunters to whom the special permits have been issued are:

29 permits issued to Gulf states royal families for houbara bustard hunting - Pakistan - DAWN.COM

As always, Hassan Nisar's predictions regarding these rigged, corrupt rulers of Pakistan came true. He predicted long ago that if they continue to remain in power, they will cut Pakistani national land in pieces and sell it off to foreign interests. Also, its worth noting that none of the foreign powers involved in destroying wildlife of Pakistan are from usual suspects; India, Israel and USA. Surprisingly they are from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar and Bahrain - our so-called "brother" Islamic States :D

When will Pakistani people collectively declare war against this rigged and traitorous federal government of Pakistan? I heard fast approaching 30 November 2014 is worth a shot!

That is how it should be. Enforce the law. The stupid Arabs ruining our wildlife.

50,000 dead Pakistanis, thanks to terrorist enjoying safe havens in KPK. Yet the most important law KPK government can think of is passing laws to protect wildlife. Why not an armed force of volunteers to counter the encroaching terrorists from FATA etc who are entering the settled areas?

Mr Phattu Khan I know you are afraid of terrorists, but iss mulk main insan bhee rehte hain?

In 2003, when Indians asked Iranians to give them some live cells of the Asiatic Cheetah for cloning and repopulating them in India's wilds, the Iranians in return asked for a pair of live Indian lions. So tough was the negotiation that it brought India-Iran trade into focus.

While rest of the countries are using their influence to the fullest extent to repopulate their diminishing wild species, Pakistan is selling them away so cheaply - and not to be rehabilitated, but to be killed - for fun. How can they afford to be so reckless with their nation's identity?

Hunting of endangered wildlife in Pakistan is a major problem. These permits should not have been provided to them.

1) I never told you I am a CNN debater. I did say, I'd debate IK ON CNN if I have to, to show you this guy is nothing but thin air. I also said I'll pay for his mental evaluation and treatment so he can get better and doesn't risk innocent lives because of his mental sickness.
The fact that you can't counter the main points of my arguments here means you would get so humiliated if you ever debate IK that you'd convert to solipsism. Pay for your own mental evaluation first.

Complaining against Police online is a small web application backed up by a call center with 10 people working on a few phones......you call that a life changing event when it like a $ 1000 operation a month???? You think we are stupid reading this? This type of crap is marketing only to show "something"
The ability to just sit here and register an FIR against any one, including politicians and police officers, is actually very, very useful. Again, you'd know this if you knew anything about Pakistan. Things can be good without being crazy expensive, keep that in mind kid, might save you some money in the future.

A town got electricity and you are jumping up and down......what are things they finished up from their agenda so far. Bring me BIG ticket items. When I take a look at Punjab and Baluchistan....I see BIG ticket items that will change millions of people's future by creating millions of jobs and will complete dozens of large scale human growth projects in the next two years. Substance please? Like the REAL substance, not $ 50,000 projects lol
Yet another completely idiotic argument. The fact that one town could get electricity after a long time means that other towns' electric infrastructure would have improved too. The only way to take electricity to this remote town is by improving the infrastructure, which is another good 'side effect'.
And I'm not jumping, i'm calmly smiling while sipping a cup of hot chai. Quit assuming stuff, it quadruples the idiocy of your argument, and that's saying something.

And you want 'Big ticket items'. Naive and immature thinking. We have been hearing of all these 'big ticket projects' for two decades now. I used to read them under candle-light every day in Pakistan. Its better to have small projects that actually work instead of huge projects that never come true.

All of that is human development and there is no way you can deny it. Plenty of mega projects in there too.

Ehtesab commission is like NAB right? What's the need for that? Violate the constitution in the Capital, conduct criminal activities, attack the parliament but still don't resign from your seats? I hope you know that IK's KPK members and federal members at this point should be sent to jail under treason.......but here they are, roaming freely even if multiple courts convicted them.
No, Ehtesab commission is not like the National Accountability Bureau. There are plenty of differences. Having a separate accountability commission for KPK is a lot more efficient than using NAB for everything.

And no, protesting is not treason. By that logic Pakistan would be free of politicians. Even your beloved King Nawaz Sharif did all that, remember? Why should he not be in Jail?

ONLY in Pakistan, can a CRIMINAL bring REVOLUTION!!!
Nelson Mandela was considered a criminal by many and he brought revolution in South Africa. Last time I checked, South Africa was not in Pakistan. US government considered Nelson Mandela a terrorist until 2008 - NBC News

Many of the Ukraine Euromaidan revolutionaries are criminals. Ukraine is not in Pakistan

The attempted Venezuelan Revolution in 2002 and ongoing one in 2014 is all full of militants and other types of criminals.
Venezuela is not in Pakistan either.

These are just some relatively recent examples, I can give you a lot more if I wanted to but this should be enough to shut you up.
When compared to most Pakistani politicians, Imran Khan is the most law abiding.

How much do you get paid by IK's team to work as a third shift propaganda team?? Answer one thing for me. All these accusations, blames, more allegations, show of "how right we are in rigging allegations" and everything else......WHY did the owner of the ARY and your top anchor (sarcasm of course) Lickman, apologized to the court today for false accusations and NOT being able to provide any material proof?

If he has been preaching right and saying the true stuff....why did they apologize to the court today and accepted the fact that they couldn't back anything up with proofs....it was ALL propaganda. Lie based campaign with utter bull crap being said from day one. So PLEASE entertain us why the Jesus like Lickman and his CEO of ARY tv apologized....I thought they had all the proofs!!!
