Kuala Lumpur: -- A man who organised a dog-petting event for Muslims in Malaysia has received death threats from religious fundamentalists who consider dogs to be untouchable.
The threats have been continuous for Syed Azmi Alhabshi, a Muslim himself, who hosted the "I want to touch a dog" event in Kuala Lumpur last week that drew nearly 1,000 people, according to his lawyer Shahredzen Johan.
"He has been getting severe death threats," he said
His intention was merely to help people "overcome a fear of dogs, how to help them when they are in trouble and the limitations in the Islamic context," Syed Azmi said. "The programme is an educational process to respect Allah’s creatures that are increasingly held in contempt and abused by our society."

The good news is we won't be seeing suicide bomber dogs anytime soon!

I was on a bus once when a mula got on with his oversized beard and pajamas for for clothes ..not to mention the typical hat .. all was good until a lady with a puddle got on ..and this guy just freaked out and moved away saying something about how she should keep the dog away from him ..
I asked him why .. and he said muslims are not allowed to touch dogs ..
I asked why again .. and he said it's the islam religion..
I asked him again .. what was wrong with that dog that he needed to freak out like he did .. he looked at me like he wanted to say something to me ..
I told him that dog was cleaner than him .. and that he should be ashamed of his ignorance .. he got off the bus while i gave him a 'i'm gonna rip your beard off and shove it down your throat' look ..lol
"The Halloween celebration is clearly against the values of Shariah [sic]," the council said in an online post yesterday, referring to Islamic law, according to the Malay Mail Online reported.
The post further stated that Halloween honors the dead and is haram, meaning forbidden.
