Daily Diary (DD) - Day 152 of 2018

Thankfully, this disaster was averted when - various members of the public rallied around the issue to force the local admin to re-take custody of the animals.

Meanwhile, here's a discussion on Mahmood's mission on JK TV:

Mahmood Ahmed Musafir was also visited by a group of journalists (of AJK but working in Islamabad/Rawalpindi Pakistan) on May the 24th. Here's a video of their discussion:
