Islam in the UK multiculturalism


This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about this, just another incident in a series of incidents involving Islam and the non-Muslim in the West. Thanks to Kumitonttu for the heads up. KGS

Muslim bus drivers refuse to let guide dogs on board

Blind passengers are being ordered off buses or refused taxi rides because Muslim drivers or passengers object to their ‘unclean’ guide dogs.
One pensioner, a cancer sufferer, told how had twice been confronted by drivers and asked to get off the bus because of his guide dog, and had also faced hostility at a hospital and in a supermarket over the animal.
The problem to carry guide dogs on religious grounds has become so widespread that the matter was raised in the House of Lords last week, prompting transport minister Norman Baker to warn that a religious objection was not a reason to eject a passenger with a well-behaved guide dog.

  1. I used to be a bus driver in the North East of England. It was company policy in all the firms I worked for (Arriva, Stagecoach, Go-Northern, and Green Bus) that although any other animals were allowed on at the discretion of the driver, guide dogs were never refused entry to the bus.
