This is just criminal. How can our government even think of allowing foreigners to come and hunt our wildlife heritage. Our so called Ummat-e-Muslima brothers have already destroyed half of our wildlife and now they are after whatever is left. I am so damn mad at our goverment (particularly our Prime Minister, Mr. Shaukat Aziz) for issuing of these hunting licenses and allotting our country to shoot whatever these ruthless hunters find in their telescopes. I don't call this hunting, but plain murder of the Houbara. This poor bird is doomed to extinction with so much hunting pressure. Lastly, the amount of privileges bestowed upon these dignitaries just shows how our government has no shame and self respect left in them, with all the treatment given to us Pakistanis in the Gulf states, starting from human labor to child jockeys.
