“Allah almighty God has given us language, consciousness and resources. These animals cannot talk to us even in the face of hunger, disease and even danger.” Maryam said. “People make luxurious feasts, but there is no place where these animals can be heard, and there is no animal protection law in the Gulf.

Maryam has given a message to the people that people do not want to keep these animals in their houses, nor on the roads, nor near their cars, nor on the rubbish bins. God made this earth not only for us but also for these animals. Every living thing has the right to live on this planet
