Donkey is unique, precious and important animal in all aspects of socioeconomic life on the earth. Unfortunately, the response of the human being is opposite in majority of the cases. It’s role is never appreciated and always neglected among the policy makers. In some languages the word KHAR (Donkey) is use for abusive language. Therefore, I proposed the name of Kargar for donkey in Pashtu, Balochi, and Persian languages. Respect this unique creature of the Almighty Allah.
