Lahore (8 May 2013): The white tiger, part of the election campaign of Maryam Nawaz, leader of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), died during a rally in Lahore on Wednesday, 8 May 2013.

Ever since the start of election season, live tigers and lions are a constant feature at PML-N political rallies. The party leader’s daughter, Mariam Nawaz, in particular enjoys the attention the white tiger brings to her rallies. But the show stopper tiger is no more alive.

Sources confirmed to Dawn.com that the rare tiger was brought unconscious to the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences Lahore on Tuesday evening. The vets there tried to revive the animal but to no avail. The animal died this morning due to ongoing sufferings in the shape of heat, noise and lack of rest.

According to WWF, white tigers are endangered and are extremely sensitive to heat and noise. With temperatures in Lahore soaring past thirty degrees Celsius and there being nothing but noise at the political rallies, the tiger could not survive. WWF has also confirmed that famed actor and conservationist Faryal Gohar is going to file a petition with the Lahore High Court against the illegal use of wildlife animals at rallies and other such activities. WWF is supporting the petition.

The animal was ruthlessly used by Maryam Nawaz Sharif in PML-N rallies across Punjab.

Maryam Nawaz Sharif has been illegally sporting a white tiger at rallies in the heat of Lahore, which the poor animal was not used to. Finally, the animal died.

Maryam Nawaz Sharif is being promoted by certain paid development consultants and for-hire columnists as a champion of progressive ideology despite the fact that PML-N has a dismal record on human rights, patronage of Takfiri Deobandi terrorists of Sipah Sahaba Taliban and also blatant disregard to human and animal rights. https://lubpak.net/archives/260433

Meanwhile, the World Wide Fund (WWF) for nature on Wednesday termed the use of white tiger by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) as violation of international laws. White tiger is an international endangered species which is only found in a few countries including Himalayan mountains bordering Pakistan.

Should these animals be used for election campaigns? Isn’t that an abuse to the animals and a risk for public safety?

لاہور: میاں محمد نواز شریف کی صاحبزادی مریم نواز کی انتخابی مہم میں لوگوں کی توجہ کاخاص مرکز بننے والا سفید ٹائیگر مرگیا۔

مسلم لیگ نواز (پی ایم ایل ن) کی ریلیوں اور جلسوں میں سفید ٹائیگر کو انتخابی نشان کے طور پر لایا جاتا ہے جہاں لوگ دور دور سے اس ٹائیگر کو دیکھنے کے لیے ریلیوں میں شرکت کرتے تھے۔

گزشتہ روز دن بھر ریلیوں میں شرکت کے باعث یہ ٹائیگر بے ہوش ہوگیا تھا جسے طبی امداد کے لیے یونیورسٹی آف اینیمل سائنسز پہنچایا گیا۔

تاہم ڈاکٹرز کی بھرپور کوشش کے باوجود اس کی زندگی بچانے میں کامیاب نہ ہوسکے۔

ڈاکٹرز کے مطابق، ٹائیگر روشنی اور شور سے گھبراتے ہیں اور نواز لیگ کے انتخابی ٹائیگر کی موت کی وجہ بھی شور، روشنی اور دن بھر کی تھکان سے ہوئی ہے

ٹائیگر کی ہلاکت پر ڈبلیو ڈبلیو ایف اور سماجی کارکن فریال گوہر نےجانوروں کے حقوق کے تحفظ کے لیے لاہور ہائیکورٹ میں رٹ دائر کرنے کا اعلان کیا ہے۔ فریال گوہر کی جانب سے لاہور ہائیکورٹ میں کل رٹ دائر کی جائے گی

پاکستان مسلم لیگ نون کا جانوروں کے حقوق کے بارے ریکارڈ انسانی حقوق کے ریکارڈ سے زیادہ بہتر نہیں صوبہ پنجاب میں اس وقت سپاہ صحابہ کے متعدد تکفیری دیوبندی دہشتگرد مسلم لیگ نون کے ٹکٹ پر الیکشن لڑ رہے ہیں جن کی سرپرستی فوجی خفیہ ادارے کے پرانے وفادار نجم سیٹھی اور ان کے اخبار جمعہ دی فرائڈے ٹائمز کے ملازمین کرتے ہیں حال ہی میں اخبار جمعہ کے ایک ملازم مدیر مریم نواز شریف کی الیکشن مہم کی خوشامد کرتے نظر آئے

    LAHORE: Animal rights activist and actor Faryal Gauhar has filed a petition in Lahore High Court against the Pakistan Muslim Lesgue-Nawaz (PML-N) for the death of a rare tiger which they brought to many of their rallies.

    The high court has admitted the petition for hearing on May 14.

    Rare tigers and lions are a constant feature at PML-N political rallies until yesterday when a rare white tiger died of extreme heat and suffocation.

    The death of the tiger has created a huge uproar in the country with animal rights activists calling for the registration of the case against Pmln leaders.

    Sources confirmed to Dawn.com that the rare tiger was brought unconscious to the University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences Lahore on Tuesday evening. The vets there tried to revive the animal but to no avail. The animal died this morning.

    According to WWF, white tigers are endangered and are extremely sensitive to heat and noise.

    The tiger belonged to a party worker who boasted off his ‘pet’ at Mariam Nawaz’s rallies. The animal can be seen in PML-N rallies across Punjab.
