Another Apology To Fragile Muslims And Their Precious Feelings

England is a nation of dog lovers, We always have been and we always will be. Yet because in Islam dogs are considered "haraam" (apparently their paedophile prophet was frightened of them) Tayside police were forced to issue an apology for a recent postcard campaign which depicted a dog because they didn't "seek advice from the force's diversity adviser".

The campaign used an image of a puppy called rebel to promote a new phone number for non-emergency calls.

Mohammed Asif, a Dundee City councillor who sits on the Tayside Joint Police Board, said "My concern was that it is not welcomed by all communities". Well, Mohammad, Maybe some things you do aren't welcome by the British community.. Maybe if something as inoffensive as a dog on a postcard is not "welcomed" you should in future try getting over yourself and realise that we can't be expected to make sure you aren't exposed to harmless depictions of animals which you may find offensive.

But yet again the British people roll over, cater to petulant assholes with precious feelings and apologise, Like groveling fucking simpletons.

At what point is someone going to say "it's a picture of a dog, grow up and get the fuck over yourself".


  1. i'll never understand why religious leaders--especially judaism and islam--are so concerned with controlling the most minute details of everyone's lives. you'd think following a simple philosophy in life would be enough.

  2. You have to wonder how they feel about the many tins of dog food on display in supermarkets and corner shops. They tend to have pictures of dogs on.

    What about parks? Presumably devout Muslims can't take a stroll in the park in case they might accidentally see *gasp* a real dog!

    And I'm assuming they can't look up at the night sky either, in case the constellation of Canis Major might catch their eye...

  3. Spot On. There is respect and tolerance and then there is fascism. I have no problems with giving a religious person days off of work for observing religious holidays; but if 50% of all days are religious holidays, no employer of differing religious views would be able to respect that. I am not going to bring a pet dog into a Muslim mosque out of respect, but in the public domain, they have to respect that not everyone has the same ideas about dogs.
