Dundee Police Apologise for Image Offensive to Muslims

#2
if most dogs are un-pure then why are there millions of fecking strays all over Arabia? They are not un-pure - just uncared for!

Some bloke, that Mohhamed; he thinks dogs are unclean and should be killed, but thinks nothing of marrying a 13 year old girl. :roll:

Personally, I've always preferred dogs to peadophiles. :wink:

As for the coppers - and I use the word in it's loosest possible sense - in Dundee: grow a pair.

FFS, with police like this, it's no wonder we're one of the most violent countries in the world! :evil:

Perhaps a picture of an Afghan hound might be OK?

Note the story said "Might cause offence" and that no-one actually had been offended.

Typical of the whole state of the country; too many people are scared to take action just in case they cause offence.

Even with advice from academics and intellectuals, the authorities are still prepared to withdraw the scheme.

Jesus.

It is true that tayside police are frighteningly useless as a force (and entirely as an aside, if any of tayside's finest are on here and wish to dispute that with me, feel free to explain why I saw six of you standing around whilst some blart was getting 7 bells of shiite knocked out of her last friday) but it is good to see the Al Maktoum lot giving a reasoned and well thought out retort. If the institute had a better platform in the community or even nationally, they would go some way to relieving tensions over stupid issues like this.

..and that's the problem. The job is more worried about offending anyone, regardless of who or what they are, than actualy catching criminals, regardless of who or what they are. Not helped by an army of interest groups, who for some reason the job actually listen to, who get all the air and papertime they need to get their views across. For example A load of youths get stabbed so the plod start searching loads of youth. Next thing you know some tw4t is bleating on about "demonising children" etc etc. I'd rather have my kid searched than stabbed.

Jobs fcuked. I've had a titfull.

Take it you are totally hooped in Muslim states if you are Blind? Can't have a guide dog as they are unclean.
Err, I think you'll find it mentioned that in the article:

However, a member of staff at the Al-Maktoum Institute for Arabic and Islamic Studies, a Dundee-based organisation which seeks to promote intelligent debate and understanding of Islam, disputed Mr Asif's claims that the image could be deemed offensive.

The staff member, who did not wish to be named, said: "In scripture, having a dog as a pet is considered forbidden, as they are considered unclean animals, and you must wash and clean after handling them.

"However, dogs can be used to hunt or farm, or even as guide dogs for the blind. I would not say a picture of a dog is offensive, but people have different sensibilities and different limits."

I have to say though, I'm pretty offended by hunting with dogs. Isn't the above statement promoting an illegal activity?

Dogs for the blind is OK - they can't see them.

Ahhh, my taxi, thanks.
