Political Fever Takes Toll on Poor Donkey in Karachi

With the upcoming elections looming upon us, no one is spared from the wrath of this time…not even the most helpless of animals.

This is a hate crime. A donkey beaten to pulp, punched in the face and abdomen several times, nose broken, kicked all over his body until he collapsed, has rope marks and a car rammed into him….all of this to describe one political party as an “ass” by some hooligans as written on the poor donkey’s body.

We have blurred out the names on the donkey’s body as we will not involve ourselves in this mess. The rest is up to you all to decide.

A very kind gentleman, Abdullah found this little baby lying on the ground trembling, with shallow breathing and pain painted all over his face.

Thanks to Adeel from Innocent Pet Shelter, Abdullah who stayed with the donkey until Adeel and the rented van we hired showed up at 3am this morning, and the ACF team ready for the donkey at the shelter, coordinating this rescue all night, we finally have brought this little baby to safety.


The donkey has multiple wounds, all fresh from the beatings, punches and kicks he endured.

The Wound near his rear was an old abscess which burst probably when he collapsed. His nostrils have been ripped apart and his face was bleeding from all the wounds.

There are no signs of internal injury thus far.

He is not eating much and his body is still stiff yet shaking in fear. His wounds have been cleaned and he has been given pain killers. He is drinking water on his own.

The girls at the shelter are sitting with him, hugging him, crying with him. He winces at any touch because he thinks each one will hurt.

Is this what our country has come to? Or is this what it’s always been? And social media and a little bit of animal welfare has now highlighted what we always were and are. Monsters.

If this is our general public that can abuse an innocent animal for fun and ridiculous, irrational reasons, because he’s a “Ghadha” then nothing else matters anyway.

We should all be ashamed of ourselves. This is what we are.

  1. It is extremely painful. Islam strongly asks Muslims to treat animals with compassion and not to abuse them. The Holy Qur’an states that all creation praises God, even if this praise is not expressed in human language. Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) often chastised his Companions who mistreated animals, and spoke to them about the need for mercy and kindness.
