Aww. What a cute little puppy. This poster was intended to remind citizens of Tayside Scotland that the local police non emergency phone number has changed.
But to Muslims, it is a symbol of hate. Because Muhammad was a cat person.
From the DailyMail here:
A postcard featuring a cute puppy sitting in a policeman’s hat advertising a Scottish police force’s new telephone number has sparked outrage from Muslims.
Tayside Police’s new non-emergency phone number has prompted complaints from members of the Islamic community.
The choice of image on the Tayside Police cards – a black dog sitting in a police officer’s hat – has now been raised with Chief Constable John Vine.
The advert has upset Muslims because dogs are considered ritually unclean and has sparked such anger that some shopkeepers in Dundee have refused to display the advert.
‘We did not seek advice from the force’s diversity adviser prior to publishing and distributing the postcards. That was an oversight and we apologise for any offence caused.’
I doubt the “diversity adviser” would have thought Muslims would be so stupid as to be upset by a freaking cute puppy. Maybe they would like it better if it was forced to wear a veil.
