    ISLAMABAD: The government put a temporary ban on export of donkey hides on Thursday, fearing extinction of the animal or possible consumption of its meat.

    A meeting of the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the Cabinet, led by Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, was informed by the food ministry that donkey hides earned Rs18,000-20,000 per piece on their export, mainly to China, leading to its mass killing through poisoning.

    The meeting was informed that Pakistan had the highest donkey population, but it was being exterminated very quickly in Pakistan. This could be gauged from the fact that export proceeds of donkey hides tripled in one year to over Rs135 million till June 30, 2015 from Rs44m a year ago.

    Informed sources said the finance minister also took notice of media reports from Lahore and some other parts of the country, suggesting alleged sale of donkey meat.

    He feared that some unscrupulous elements might have supplied donkey meat to meat markets, even though its human consumption was forbidden in Islam.:biggrin2::biggrin2:

    It was also informed that donkey bones were also being used in China for anti-wrinkle creams that may also be making its way into Pakistani market. The finance minister desired that this should also be discouraged.

    After detailed discussions, the ECC decided to clamp ban on export of donkey hides till such time that regulatory mechanism was put in place by the provinces for proper disposal of carcasses of the animals.
