What was involved in this well share was actually originally interested in an elephant's called Billy and she still is. It was in Los Angeles Zoo. That's how she got involved with elephants through her friend Lily Tomlin. I'm sure you are wet now off, who had been campaigning for the release of Billy the elephant in Los Angeles Zoo, and she tweeted about Billy on her social media on all of her followers said. Well, if you think Billy is in bad shape, you should check out Tavon the elephants in Islamabad Zoo who Has been their lonely since his mate died in very very poor conditions was was actually being fed a diet of sugar cane, which sounds pretty good, but is actually terribly bad because it gives the elephant diabetes.

It's a Russian Transport plane and the last time I was involved in one of these planes of actually to take a director called Verner Herzog to Antarctica, and it's big enough to carry a lot of people and a lot of equipment on to give you an idea of how tricky this is. The crate had to be positioned. Within that two inch tolerance on dis is like a shipping container with a live elephant inside because otherwise it wasn't positioned that precisely. The plane would be unbalanced on then, of course you have. You know, Anel affronted inside Who's moving around? He had to be sedated. Not put to sleep, because that would be lethal. But he had to be standing but calm.

"Was around three AM in the morning when I heard a huge explosion. We came to know ten minutes later that there was a bomb blast. Then we heard jets flying over. We went to the place in the morning. There was a huge crater four or five houses were damaged one of our relatives who lives there was injured in the blast. So why has the Indian government decided to attack Pakistan? Now, I've been speaking to GV L Narasimha Rao. He's a member of parliament and national spokesperson for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. This is not an attack on Pakistan. But this was a preemptive action taken by the government of India to protect its own to protect protected soared tree and to keep people safe. This is a preemptive strike against a a major training camp for Jay which is being used to launch further for dining attacks against India. Indian had already critic. Intelligence that sort are being bland even after the attack where more than forty billion soldiers were killed by Jason Muhammad strike. So you say this is not an attack on Pakistan Indian jets crossed over the border into Pakistan and dropped a payload of bombs that is an attack on another country. We think it's it's very much within our right to protect our own country. Bolkenstein had made a solemn commitment not to let it itching to be used for any kind of export by Pakistan had simply not being deli wearing on its promises on these LARs camps could not have functioned in Pakistan without the full knowledge and support of the Pakistan the administration in that sense bogus teams off Jason Mohammad actors like a muscle. Is being launched state actors is nothing but a bogus claim. So India very much reserves the right through carry out strikes even across the right to the line of control line of control and has demonstrated. What it has stated we have stated this before. And this is a policy and the internationally. I think any country which is using its territory for launching terror attacks against a neighboring country. I think certainly deserves this kind of response that we have given it, you know, the Pakistan denies that. It is harboring Josh shape. Mohammed. So we we have to make that clear that they deny that they are endorsing condoning any activity by Josh sheet. Mohammed I wonder though, what you make of the decision to do this now which is clearly going to escalate tensions between the two countries because Pakistan's national security. Mri has today said that the country will respond at the time and place of its choosing to what it describes as Indian aggression. This is not good for either country. Is it no I think Pakistan has got away with this kind of love for a very long time they being perpetrated in a lot of terror attacks within India, they've been supporting terror organizations training them in pre-trading them into India, and they have possibly gotten for a long time and Pakistan. I think he's doesn't have any credibility internationally. It has been lying to the whole world. Jay alchemy dish and actors like muscle Azer their own so freely number in in Pakistan. They have the full states art. I think they actually function as army in Pakistan. So just give me details of what you think. Based on your intelligence, you have managed to achieve by striking. I think you will have to listen to the statements coming. From pakistan. It's a factor confused country. You have on the one hand in Pakistan e parliament national assembly, you have the opposition parties speaking on the floor of parliament. Indian fighter planes went right into Pakistani territory, nearly seventy kilometers from the Endo seat. It is a statement their own government has admitted that Indian fighter planes, rain, great into into the territory of Pakistan on the also no we have struck the targets, but they say no damage has been done. If no damage has been done. I think it's laughable why you man Mancon prime minister of Pakistan. Deidra. A security committee. Why are they talking off? Not reacting to these developments striking back. The situation is going to escalate, sir. If Pakistan is wise, I think they would not dare doing anything like this. We certainly think of their bluff has been called. And if we have a tactic terror Cam either these activities if they want to remain in jail as they have done all along. I think we have nothing much to say like our only interest was to launch a preemptive strike to keep India. That was GV L Narasimha Rao, a member of the Indian parliament and national spokesperson for the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. Let's hear now from Pakistan Khawaja, Mohammad Asif is a Pakistani and a former minister of foreign affairs and minister for defence for the Pakistan Muslim League party. How confident is he that the Pakistani government is telling the truth about what's happened? The briefing may be given to the parliament tomorrow. But let me tell you at the outset. I said there is damage to your property in that area. But there no casualties. So what sort of air raid? They have conducted what is described meeting about. So there has been a statement inside the national assembly by a member of parliament from the p p p the bucks on people's policy saying that we are in a state of war. Do you agree with that situation can escalate into a situation where there is a full fledged war between the two countries? It is a dangerous situation. The actual already in the at the moment. But that situation is foster approaching is attention continues. If you were still in office as foreign minister, what would you be advising the prime minister, we do not want this situation to escalate I'm concerned. And I think the government is also thinking on same lines. But having said that if the situation continues the Indian elections are approaching saw date is a consensus on the inside. Also that this is for the political whatever it is being done, it just sort political evidence at the end is being up to your by India, we should be awarding the excavation of award between the two countries we are nuclear powers, and this could be very very dangerous not only for the region. It could be dangerous. The world loss isn't one way of trying to de escalate the situation is for the government to come out and say that it does not condone any of the actions by Josh shape. Mohammed India's contention is that the Pakistan government is complicit in allowing this organization to operate freely on its territory. That's not correct in the presence of Jason Mohammad remnants of that organization's upskill their this baggage we are carrying is from the last two decades. And the western world was complicit in this team. You have to be with these people on them e fan them. That's absolutely, correct. We're not denying that. But what is happening in the valley? Mightier is also better you not guilty and in fifty five people last one year, they're blinded. More than one thousand people in the valley dish value values like a huge concentration camp. So. Without finding a solution for cashmere. This thing is going for last seven decades that has traditionally bookish meat is it unfinished agenda of nineteen forty seven the partition of India. These things are so interlinked. You can compartmentalize these things, okay? You have called for a joint parliamentary session, which I think is going to be meeting on Wednesday with a view to doing what what's the point of it? We want to have a broad consensus of public opinion of focused happening on our borders. What can happen in coming days and weeks between our two countries box on India. So we have to take the public representatives of the public opinion into confidence. If agree with? The real expressed that, but we would like to evolve. Consensus in conquering what India is doing on our borders on Jerry across the LDC. We know that the national security committee, which has included a meeting, obviously with the prime minister Imran Khan and with the army chief they are saying that they will act as a time of their choosing. What is the absolute minimum? Do you think that Pakistan should do in response to this attack in my opinion? Once we we get of this intrusion took place in the RS of today. I think then in may your response to India must take place it should not go. The doubt response Camacho. Muhammad Asif former minister for foreign affairs for the Pakistan Muslim League party.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa may made a speech to parliament outlining some of the options available to MP's if they reject an amended version of her current draft Brexit deal in a significant shift. She offered new opportunities for them to vote on different scenarios for the UK's departure from the European Union. Our political correspondent robots in joins us now from Westminster rob what has she announced? In fact, she's only just sat down from speaking at the at the dispatch box for more than two hours. That's quite right. As you say this significance that significant what I'm calling it is delay with the difference. And the difference says that they won't just be a vote on her Dale should've called she tied up with the European Union between now and the twelfth of March but on the thirteenth of March. If that deal is rejected by members of parliament, they will then get to vote on whether latest wants to leave the European Union without any kind of let's hall, and if they reject that then on the fourteenth of March 'em peace will get to vote for the idea of. Delaying the Brexit process. One of the criticisms of MRs may has been that she continues to say that she is very clear and continues to present really quite peak solutions to what's going to happen. Do we now you think have clarity? I think we do. And in one sense. Of course, MRs may is absolutely right about being clear about stuff. You you picked up on a habit for saying that and that is this a sheer self would say, she's an immensely stubborn woman. And she is absolutely decided that the only way of honoring the referendum is through her deal the deal that she struck and agreed with the European Union in November which is now she's now trying to modify she absolutely believes that. But of course, political reality has forced her to make accommodation faced with a rebellion from pro e u alignments in our party who wants to rule out the idea of no deal.

"NewsHour from the BBC World Service. It comes to you live from London. The Indian government has blamed Pakistan for Thursday's violence in. Kashmir. That is our top story today. Also in today's program, we hear how Egypt's Coptic Christians have dealt with the video of a massacre for the Coptic church. This video has become an icon an icon of the passion of the same. That interview is coming up in about twenty minutes with the German writer Martin most pocket. We begin today though, with Kashmir a disputed region. Geographically located between India and Pakistan with both countries claiming sovereignty over it. She has endured around three decades of insurgency as well as interference and is could be forgiven for despairing that the world has become inured to their plight. The attack on Thursday in which more than forty Indian paramilitary officers were killed by a suicide bomber from the group Girish Muhammad, which has its headquarters in Pakistan could be a game changer. Indians are furious and the government's internal policy on Kashmir may change. The attack is almost certainly also gained to change India's relationship with Pakistan the government in Islamabad has condemned. The attack and says it had nothing to do with it. The government in Delhi blames Pakistan and says it will take all steps to isolate its neighbor from the international community. We'll hear from a spokesman of the Indian government in just a moment. But first wife is Kashmir disputed pick. Torius. Go field is the author of Kashmir in conflict, the beginnings of the Kashmir dispute almo correctly, we should say the dispute over the former princely state of genuine cashmere goes back to nine hundred forty seven at the time of partition, the maharaja couldn't decide which country he wanted to join and the issue was not resolved actually at the time of independence. It was subsequently resolved in October nineteen forty seven when he finally did exceed to India, but this was disputed by Pakistan, raiders it already gone in. And basically the ceasefire was affected in nine hundred forty nine between the two opposing sides leaving one third of the state administered by Pakistan, roughly two-thirds administered by India this included the most populous region the beautiful valley of Kashmir. And this is where the problem has arisen most of the other. Areas have remained quiescent but in the late nine thousand nine hundred thirty nine hundred ninety s and insurgency began. And this is what we're now seeing is the fallout from this insurgency, the two countries Pakistan and India have gone to war over this disputed region. In the context of everything that you have said where does this attack fit in? Unfortunately, what's happened within the whole history in terms of talking about the insurgency. It's cyclical and you've had the rise and fall in violence. What you're now seeing is another upsurge in violence, and this is the worst attack that has been perpetrated against Indian security forces emanating from a group of individuals within the valley who believes that they haven't been accorded what they call their right of self-determination. But in the context of the overall dispute over jumble and catch me a it's a small region. And this has to be understood, it's a great sense of alienate. Nation, which you're seeing in the valley of Kashmir, and unfortunately stemming into undertaking terrorist acts should we be reading anything into the timing of this particular attack? The Indian elections are imminent, I wouldn't necessarily the attack has been time because of the elections, but unfortunately, the reaction in India is going to be that much greater because of election because the other unfortunate strand to the whole debate is the blame that India attached to Pakistan for what gets undertaken in the valley of Kashmir and the longstanding complete it's been going on for over twenty years. Thirty years is that Pakistan actually is sponsoring these acts of terrorism, and this is where the reaction from India and the Indian government is going to be very telling because it's coming into elections, certainly the domestic. The constituency within India is going to be demanding a reaction, which is not going to be soft on Pakistan, victorious Scofield. Let's hear now from JV L Narasimah rows spokesman for the ruling by John Topolski. So what does the Indian government want action that we expect from angrily global used to identify Pakistan as an exporter of terrorism a country that has not only given sanctuary to all the major federal Switzer on its soil. By has also been incubating thin can bring them sanction to really attack the neighbors. Namely, India just to be clear, so you'll blaming the government of Pakistan for being behind this attack is Jason momoa, which has taken responsibility for this terror attack. But it is no secret. There is only a pin line between the states on those of terrorism on this so called a non-state actors working. The foreign Minister Arun Jaitley has said that there is incontrovertible evidence that psalm about had a direct hand in this attack. What evidence do you have this will be public domain, into course of time? I think there is no doubt in anyone's mind that people like muscled he's the leader of the organization that's claimed responsibility. Josh Mohammed them seeing. Barrowman on late this gate, guests of John? The target. Dictate thumbs to the government, uneven Pakistan. On the government of Pakistan rejects everything that you have said they have condemned the attack they reject any links between the group the government of Pakistan says it only gives moral and diplomatic support to the people of Kashmir and their struggle for determination. This is there. No takers for this kind of a silly explanations that Pakistan government, also, and it's no secret that people like muscled has actually buy cheaper half as they literally they have greater authority than the prime minister of Pakistan. There's a quite strong allegations to make about a neighboring government. Do you not accept that? You are inflaming tensions. When you say that your neighbor Pakistan is trying to destabilize the region, surely the rhetoric that you are coming out with is contributing to inflaming tensions making a fight. To in statement. We have. Sorry, sir. It's a factual statement that can be easily contested by many people to expose Pakistan. This is not inflaming fashion. This is seeking Justice. I to ensure that the perpetrator of data that is Pakistan is really easily globally diplomatically, uneven. Otherwise, the prime minister Narendra Modi has said that they will be a strong response to the decks of these soldiers was is it India is planning on doing. What is it that you think will be an adequate strong response has been a stated policy of our government since twenty in security forces remain completely autonomous? And they have the full authority sanction of the government. Does India to carry out every action that is required to ensure that armed forces are secure. So they will act independently of the Indian government. To respond to this forces will have the full Akari Tico. Bland would do they would want to give Justice to the people who been killed in this attack. What is it that you would like to see happen? You've talked about how Pakistan should be isolated. What are you calling on these nations to do? For example. What are you calling on the rest of the international community to do as the first step threat knowledge and really unequally locally state Pakistan is not only harbouring terrorism Pakistan is completely in the post terrorist, organizations and terror leaders? Secondly, we were taking these steps to get the support of the international community to get this comprehensive convention on international terrorism.

And of course, we know that because just as how we've talked about in our changes hard segments language is so powerful and just as if you're an American Airlines client or a delta client one day the seat that you've been flying in every week is called a coach or economies, they just change it. And they say no, this is Connie elites or Konami. Plus, and now we're going to charge you twenty percent more. And it's like, but it's the exact same plane. It's nothing changed except the price in your name. And they're like, Yep. They've created value out of nothing. In this goes on all the time, including in our news where infotainment celebrity gossip flat out promotion is packaged as news. And they'll tell you. We're telling you news, we're journalists, and they're doing an infomercial in many of you will believe it many of you will believe it, and it's all by design. So that's coming up in about fourteen minutes. Now, we are going to turn to a subject that has been a subject that is very popular here in the United States in about another week and a half. There's a possibility that the United States government gets shut down for a second time this year. Because of the temp to build a continue building extend the the border wall between the United States and Mexico. And I think we all are very familiar with this. This is this is debated lots of institutional media cover this lots of gossip covers this. Everybody's got an opinion on the wall in again, just to give you an idea of how. We operate and look at things in how most likely if you're watching CNN or FOX those types of places, they don't cover it this way again by design just like our designers to offer a foreign view of America to an American audience. Their idea is something much different mostly it is to sell products. That's that's basically their goal. Their goal is look we've got we've got shareholders ruined by giant multi corporations. Whether you know, it's Time Warner, whether it's the the FOX network now Disney network. They've got lots of businesses that just one piece of a big business, and they've got shareholders they've got to answer to and all of that. So how many cars can they sell how much soap can they sell? That's what they work on. And they figure out ways to do. And it really doesn't. You know, what they say doesn't really matter. It's just a it starts out with. How can we gather them the largest possible audience the most desirable audience, and then leverage that to make money? That's that's how it works. And that's fine. That's how capitalism works, and I certainly don't argue with it. But that's how you have to view everything. So there's a reason why this story probably will only be covered here. In the way that we covered Hawley is one of our voices from Pakistan. You heard him in our first hour talking about the United States possible peace deal with the Taliban. And I also wanted to talk to her about a developing story in that is a massive border wall. Along the Afghan border. The Pakistan government has begun. This this wall this past week, the Pakistan government made a very public plea. I mean, they went to the media and said, we're gonna take you out here. We're gonna hold the press conference. We want the story to get out and you can ask yourself. This was this a number one or number two or number three story was even put into contrast with one of the biggest stories that's been going on here in the United States. It's the number one reason why Donald Trump started his campaign. I'm going to build a wall Mexico's gonna pay for it. That was his base is launching pad and he became president. You would think you'd want to go around and check out different walls around the world of which there are many many one right now that is directly influenced by the United States in the fact that there's been this seventeen eighteen year war. There are still fourteen thousand US troops along the Afghan Pak. Border is exactly why Pakistan says it is building this war the military just a few days ago said this massive border security project. We've accelerated it to guard against the spillover of terrorism in the. Event that the United States military leaves which is what everybody is saying. So again, the United States is very much involved in all of this. So here's a Lally about what he thinks people in his community think what Pakistanis. Thank you here in the United States. It's either it's great for security or it's great for the economy or it's bad. It's racist. It's mean, I wonder if people in Pakistan think the same way here's Lally on voice to America. It's all is offense single double sense. I'm not sure, but it's been it's about five six feet. Petro and me made that impossible as weekend because we are getting. And people cross the border every day from Afghanistan to Pakistan, and it just totally I'm restricted add on police. This fence will enable last to stop that this this fence will enable us to have points where people come and go they can be checked and checked. This. Stop infiltration into styles by the day. DTP this fence was certainly have an impact on the drug and other illegal contraband that is so this is a very useful and needed fence and spent a lot of money off. I only spent a lot of time and we need to solve. Missile defense it off and Mr. Lally, you said thirty thousand people come across roughly per day is that correct party forty. The house and people used to come across Afghanistan Pakistan borders per day and accused at yes, I did. I did we would accused of being able to control the Taliban, and this is giving, you know, they talk. Yeah. I'm sorry. Of these forty thousand is all the Connie network. Is it is it all this group, or oh, he's about fourteen thousand people all bad, people know, a lot of them are genuine people who want to cross over one hundred and one reasons I'm telling you that the TD and among them, I'm sure they have been fighting the Beckhams. Control of that. Why didn't do you know, why didn't the United States controls their side of the border debit? They had five hundred thousand troops or movie. What Bank I- billion or ten billion a year? It's funny. You spent a trillion dollars dead. I mean, why wouldn't they do it? I saw this past week the pack military says that it is speeding up the building of this fence or this wall due to the possibility that the United States may exit sooner rather than later does this mean that that Pakistan expects an increase in migration when the United States leaves people from Afghanistan will flood into Pakistan Doni, you tell me what happens if for example, Tajiks of dodge. Which is some people. Percent of the office of the national army. These are people who hitch Pakistan as much as the Indians to people who hits the fan as much as anybody else does if these people and the Taliban do not come to an agreement about living peacefully and the civil war against starts. It's something like this. Also happens is your stay. On in that given bed the extremist, you of Islam and the niche if they start the Hausa of lives, then it is great to be a lot of commotion. And there is such situations. Data another refugee exodus. Now, we all we had to five million. Since one dollars two now. But there were as many as five million, and you know, what they did. This is really terrible. I mean, they ruined us direct direct funding need, they Kalashnikov culture culture gathered in some extremism, the economy of the santia. And now, we don't what has who knows. If they don't have peace in Sunday's happen again. Is there a piece that we wanted? Yeah. Yeah. I was gonna I was gonna say is there. A public debate about the wall. Does does the public support the wall? Or is there a debate about it? Yes. I would say an eight percent support for the wall by get. As I'm sure you're aware at least somewhat our president here. Donald Trump is trying to build a wall on our southern border with Mexico, and it's very controversial. And there are plenty of people. I don't know if it's great how great the Mexicans crossing with the brushing. I mean, you know, they come fully armed with. Oh, my God that drives and everything I don't the Mexicans crossing the seems to be more of these an Amish issue and this and that I don't know. It is threatened. Yes. You're right.

You know, what's right and wrong. Did you have economic conditions? Can do. I mean. As far as. Boarded anymore. Why did you think Germany and frogs, but different?

And seven points officers and one intelligence officer were killed in a similar deadly attack in a neighbouring Logar province on Sundays. How would you? Explain the recent increase in the intensity of the Taliban attacks. Well, when you would think that the United States, President Trump is highly t king of pulling out his forces from our guys, STAN. And when you think that the central government in Afghanistan still undecided and divided and nobody knows who's going to win the new elections. And when you find that the Americans are not ready to continue to support this government. And as Mr. Trump decided to put out the Syria and now the phone down, you can think that Taliban field things. They are the fit to fill the vacuum left by the United States. And that's why another approval that. Of course, the talks between the United States. I'm atoll one understand something that was not happening in the last years or a few years.

What do you make of this? Well, I've gone governments or successive governments have only always being the generalized on sidelined by the United States, and by the by the Taliban because as you are everybody know that it has no force on the ground.
