duckChitral — The people of Chitral by and large, except those few who are addicted to duck shooting, have appreciated steps taken by Deputy Commissioner Chitral to impose section 144 and prevent the construction of artificial lakes on river banks which are used to lure in migratory ducks through decoys etc and these ducks are killed mercilessly. Speaking to CN, an elderly person said hunting was allowed in Islam as a source of food for survival and it was then carried out with simple and primitive hunting weapons. Massacring migratory birds with sophisticated weapons just for the pleasure of it is pure sadism and a very un-Islamic act, he said. Some individuals are playing a positive and active role in raising awareness about cruelty to migratory birds and Rehmat Jaffar Dost is a prominent one of them. — CN report, 06 Oct 2016
