Killing birds
By Samia Shah

It’s cruel, it’s wrong and it’s against the law. Yet it goes on unabated. These clichéd phrases can represent so many things that are happening in our country. But in this particular case they relate to and very aptly describe the hunting of Houbara Bustard that has been going on every year for decades. This year yet again the government has issued hunting licenses to our brothers in faith from the Gulf countries and Saudi Arabia. In Pakistan the hunting season begins in November and ends in January. According to one estimate the population of this endangered bird has dropped as much as 40 per cent since 2005 and the current population is further expected to reduce by 50 per cent in 2006-7. This means that if strict measures are not taken immediately to curtail the unsustainable trade and hunting, this aloof bird could face extinction in next 15-20 years.
