Election fever has reached high in Pakistan and people are not even sparing the poor animals to express their hate and wrath. In a gruesome incident of its kind supporter of a party have targeted an equine by painting the name of a political opponent and then brutally beating the poor soul just to make him a victim of political hatred.
The incident has outraged Pakistanis who are calling out the dead conscience of the people.
A Donkey Becoming Victim of Political Hatred
While the world is looking at how general elections 2018 will determine the fate of Pakistan, they have at least exposed the mentality of the public. The issue came into the spotlight when a Facebook user shared on the social media platform how he found that brutally tortured donkey on the road and tried to help him.
In his post where he also shared the images of the victim, the user Abdullah Mahmood wrote, “Have been trying to help this poor monkey for more than two hours alone now… He seemed sitting injured or ill, unable to move in the middle of the road, then a car hit and went on ignorantly, passersby would slow drive and walk away when asked to help. And all this an output of some political rally probably trying to shame Nawaz.
ACF Animal Rescue Saved the Donkey
Later, ACF Animal Rescue saved the donkey that became a victim of political hatred. The NGO also shared its pictures and told how the animal was beaten to the pulp and punched in face and abdomen several times.

Filmstar Armeena Khan also took to the social media to condemn the incident.
If you hurt children, the elderly and poor, defenceless animals then you are a sick/disgusting individual and shouldn’t be allowed into civil society. Babies and animals can’t tell you that it hurts or where it hurts. ?? ??
