    The federal government of Pakistan has issued a special permit to the ruler of Dubai, allowing export of 25 rare falcons and endangered species from Pakistan to the UAE in breaching of wildlife protection laws on nature securing.

    In the light of respected sources, by permitting Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, the foreign ministry has put at risk the Generalised System of Preferences status given to Pakistan by the European Union.

    As stated the sources, Arab huntsmen employed the rare migratory falcons to hunt worldwide internationally preserved houbara whose meat is taken to be aphrodisiac.

    This is the second of the type export permit issued by the government during the current season. The previous one was issued couple of days ago to Saudi Prince Fahd, who is Governor of Tabuk province. It was he who attracted worldwide attention previous years after news about his hunting at least 2,100 houbara bustards in Balochistan’s Chagai district appeared in the media.

    Under the fresh permit, 25 falcons may be exported from Karachi, Bahawalpur and Rahimyar Khan airports for Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

    The sources further added saying although Pakistan was signatory to the convention on international trade in endangered species of fauna and flora that checked worldwide travel of wildlife species, it did not ask for any permission from, or pass on any information to, the Switzerland-based body on the trans-boundary movement of falcons permitted by it between Pakistan and the countries in the Arabian Peninsula.

    Typical federal! Agiyea apni slave aukaad mein?!
    Before denial troll police comes in do read the article! This has nothing to do with IK nor KPK! It is federal govt who is giving out permits that the court didnt allow like giving candies to kids!

    Just for some personal gain/ loans/ business they have literally risked the future of our country and still people want to be their slaves?

    Seriously they wouldnt be needing that had they only 1 wife!

    So someone is dragging our reputation and cutting our trade connections / status and what not and it isnt just unpar log! But it is a new paray likhay jahil who are in govt seats to earn for their pockets!

    You should not expect a PM who pimped his daughter to an Arab prince, to care about birds. That is grossly unfair !

    Once slaves, always slaves. The sorry story of a subjugated population (note not a civilization), called Pakistanis.

    @Akheilos You should read the Dawn article about how Pakistan's Foreign Relations with the Gulf Arabs hinges on these Hunting Trips.

    Where are all the Noora fans gone?

    It's a testament to Pakistan's diplomatic failure. The only real relationship we have is because of the military. Remove that from the equation and you have nothing.

    Well Pakistans brotherly relationship with Arabs is more important than these birds. Pakistan government is doing this to protect this brotherhood. And besides Arabs have given Pakistan culture and religion so you owe them.
