Dogs Not Welcome: Growing Calls by Muslims To Accommodate Their Hatred Of Dogs
CTV of Vancouver reported that numerous flyers had been posted at a local park which read, “Many Muslims live in this area and dogs are considered filthy in Islam. Please keep your dogs on a leash and away from the Muslims who live in this community.”
The city’s mayor was questioned about the signs by CTV and said they had not been issued by the city. However, he said “Whether they were produced by a well-meaning member of the Muslim community or by someone wanting to cause contention, the fact remains that there are current bylaws in place that enforce areas for dogs to be on leash, except in designated off-leash areas.”
The Stream.com’s John Zmirak reports that, as growing numbers of Muslims immigrate to non-Muslim countries, there have been similar calls to accommodate their cultural aversion to dogs.
But Muslims cannot expect Americans or Brits or anybody else to change their ways of life to accommodate them. Although we must certainly treat Muslims with respect, they must make more of an effort to assimilate into the local culture of their adopted countries.
Here’s to God’s greatest gift to mankind – the dog!
