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.
The affront to the Muslim community has been caused by the fact that dogs are considered ritually unclean and has sparked such anger that some shopkeepers in Dundee (Scotland) have refused to display the advert.

What I find to be a joke is when people take a news report like this so serious and use it for a chance to bash police and muslims in general.

blueorder, it's important not to take literally everything that you read. Whoever wrote that article probably talked to two or three Muslims, got their opinion and then copy/pasted said opinion onto every single Muslim out there.
Go ahead, write the author. Demand to know the sources.
Don't just assume everything said there is accurate.
I hate the word "they." Who is they? How many are there in this group of they? They sure do show up a lot when it's convenient for someone to make an argument.
"Who did that?"
Yeah... can you be more vague please?

muppetry on both sides in my opinion. The muslims who are so offended by a PICTURE of a puppy. And the police,for not just telling them to shut up and go away.
Cards featuring police dog-in-training Rebel have been distributed to communities throughout the area to advertise the single number point of contact for non-emergency calls to the police.
Rebel has proved a popular recruit for Tayside Police after coming through the very first Lothian and Borders Police dog-breeding programme in February.
One of seven German Shepherd pups born in early December, he has now completed his course of inoculations, and is free to venture out onto the streets of Tayside.
A spokesman for Tayside Police said: 'Trainee police dog Rebel has proved extremely popular with children and adults since being introduced to the public, aged six weeks old, as Tayside Police's newest canine recruit.
'His incredible world-wide popularity - he has attracted record visitor numbers to our website - led us to believe Rebel could play a starring role in the promotion of our non-emergency number.

I simply don't like generalising, we all know these reports are in the media because of the very fact they are muslim, and we all know that most muslims don't complain at all, yes I agree it's annoying that SOME muslims always seem to complain, but like I said it is WAY more annoying when people put these complainers in the same group as ALL muslims, try to keep that down guys.
