Abdul Aziz I pray for you to go blind

Deputy Transport Minister: guide dogs might inconvenience the blind

Deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi laidd out his reasoning why using guide dogs to assist blind people in KL might not be such a great idea.
Responding to a report in The Malay Mail which quoted Land and Public Transport Commission (SPAD) Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar as saying there should be no problem with allowing guide dogs to assist the blind when using public transportation facilities, Abdul Aziz said SPAD's regulations should not come into conflict with city regulations set by local authorities. 
“The local authorities have set very specific rules governing the breeding of dogs, and these rules include premises that do not allow dogs to be left without a capable owner,” he told Alexander Winifred of The Malay Mail Online.
Whether he meant that blind people would not make capable owners of guide dogs was unclear. 
Adbul Aziz also said the guide dogs could prove to be an inconvenience for the blind. 
“What if the dog pees in a bus or in the train? Who will clean up the mess? I fear the other commuters might get angry with the disabled owner,” he said.
When the successful implementation of guide dogs in other Asian countries such as South Korea and Japan was brought up, Abdul Aziz dismissed the cases as not being good comparisons, as the countries mentioned had different ethnic makeups.
Under section 8C of the Licensing of Dogs and Kennel Establishment (Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur) By-laws 1991, licensed owners must keep their dogs under proper surveillance within a fenced premise, and leashed and muffled when taken out of the premises. The owner must also take all necessary steps to ensure the dog does not defecate or urinate in a public place, and if it does, the owner should remove the faeces immediately.
Director of the Department of Islamic Development (Jakim) Datuk Othman Mustapha also pointed out that touching dogs was considered haram under Islamic law, and therefore it would be inappropriate for the blind to use guide dogs in Malaysia, given the country's Muslim majority. 
“Muslims may accidentally brush against dogs, and dogs and their fur are unclean under Islamic tenets,” he said.
Othman said Muslims were particular about their personal hygiene as it was a fundamental concern in the Islamic religion.
“Islamic beliefs and practices cannot be taken lightly according to personal feelings and reasons,” he said. 
“They must be in accordance with teachings of the Quran, Sunnah, Ijma, and Qiyas that are valid.”
Stevens Chan, who had brought Malaysia’s first guide dog from Nanjing, China, said the dog was trained to only discharge faeces twice a day at the owner’s instruction.
He said that upon instruction, the dog would look for a grassy area to discharge its faeces.
“If we are in an unfamiliar place, I would ask someone to direct me to a grassy area for my guide dog to discharge his business,” he said.
Day by day we get an arse who talk cock.  So what if the guide dogs pee or poop in public when they are on duty.
Everyday dog owners take their dogs for walks to do their business on the streets and playground. The owners do not even bother to remove the faeces.  Yet no-one make a fuss especially Malays who just walk pass it. So why have different rules for guide dogs?
What about people who do their business in the drain, lorong or some bushes?  Pasar Malam traders are the biggest culprit when they misuse the drain as toilet.
What is so haram about dogs.  If Jakim is so clever why not build a special road just for Muslim? Stop all non-Muslim from donating blood to the blood bank. Have special currency for Muslim.  Have special buses for Muslim.  Have special drinking water for Muslim.
Do you know that the water Malaysians consume have PIG and DOG DNA?  Don't believe ask Jakim to do test.
