Muslim taxi driver refuses to take disabled passenger with his guide dog ‘because it’s against his religion’
Footage shows Charles Bloch, with his guide dog Carlo (top right) and girlfriend Jessica Graham, trying to get in the taxi (bottom left) before being told by the driver (top left) that he will ‘not take the dog’ because of his religion. Mr Bloch, who is registered blind after being born visually impaired, had booked the cab using firm ADT Taxis in Leicester but was shocked to be told the driver would not take him upon collection.
His partner, 21, who was also born with a visual impairment and is registered blind, filmed the encounter on her phone and posted the footage – which now been viewed by millions – online. It shows Mr Bloch, a student at De Montfort University, approaching the taxi and asking the driver why he could not take them.
The driver can be heard saying: ‘Me, I do not take the dog. It’s a choice for me. For me, it’s about my religion’. Mr Bloch responds: ‘By law you can’t deny us…it’s against the disability act of 1995,’ but the driver refuses to take the couple and drives off (bottom right), after saying he will need to call head office.
