Pet Dogs Arrested in Iran

Iran's Moral Police Crack Down on Pet Dogs

Accrording to Islamic doctrine, dogs are unclean, hence Islamic leaders take a very dim view of Muslims owing dogs.


The Iranian Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Against Animals (SPCA) says that 20 pet dogs were recently arrested in a park in Tehran.

The dogs were reportedly being walked by their owners in the Pardisan park last week when security forces took the canines away and transferred them to what appears to be a detention center.

Dogs are considered dirty by Iranian clerics, who have denounced dog ownership as morally corrupt. In recent years, police officials have issued warnings against dog owners.

Dog owners and their pets have been harassed, detained, and forced to pay fines. That hasn't stopped Iranians in Tehran and other big cities from keeping dogs as pets, however.

One woman who owns a small terrier told RFE/RL that dog ownership is becoming increasingly difficult in Iran.

"It's ridiculous," she said. "Instead of solving people's economic problems, the [authorities] harass us for having dogs."

In the UK, a problem exists with Muslim taxi drivers refusing to carry guide dogs in their cars.

Its just their culture.

I dont like dogs much either. They are dumb compared to a cat. And they are dirty.

In China they eat dogs. In some places you can eat a horse.

Inuits eat whale and I would like to see Greenpeace jerks try to stop them. The Japanese like whale and I am happy for them.

Cultures are different. People are different.

I like dogs and that is my country's culture.

Actually, you are mistaken that dogs are dumb compared to cats. Have you taught your cats any good tricks recently?

Its not that cats don't want to learn tricks. They are just not intelligent enough to understand what you are trying to do.

Actually, no its their religion.

Islam allows people to own a working dog but considers dogs in general unclean.

Wikipedia

Hence the reason why the religious police are seizing dogs from pet owners.

Any animal that demands you walk it 3 times a day, while having to pick up it's poo in a little plastic bag along the way, can never gain my true affection.

I said culture not religion.

And I agree with them. Dogs are unclean. So are pigs. Seems that they have very good hygiene in Iran.

The Persians are very sensible.

Cats dont do tricks because its beneath them

They also dont chase cars or bark at lawnmowers or a million other dumb things dogs do.

You can also leave a cat for two weeks and it will feed itself.

Dogs are just dirty inbred morons at the end of the day.

Edit- I used to own a Staffie that I got for my ex-girlfriends son. He wasnt the best dog owner so the dog became mine. I loved it. I like dogs sort of but they really are dirty. And cats are smarter.

That in no way makes it ok. In some peoples culture they eat human beings. Now I know almost nobody thinks that is ok. Heck the Aztecs or Mayans sacrificed some 50,000 people in one day for the opening of a new temple. That is definitely not justifiable under the guise of tradition or culture. I believe in progression and moving past our barbaric actions. And as far as when making an argument I ask for consistency.

Edit: Aslo, I find it funny that you said in some places they eat horse. Well in America I know horse meat is a common ingredient in dog food

Did this just really turn into a cat-lover/dog-lover war? I believe you should just love all animals, for we are all connected, as cliche as that sounds

You can tell a lot about people by the way they regard animals.

Because it is bad to "not like" anything specifically because of what it is. Its bigotry in all reality.

What makes you think I didnt read it? What does your extext prove?

And you are not reading my posts. I owned a dog and was a fantastic dog owner. Just because I am of the opinion that dogs are dirty and I respect the culture of others doesnt say anything bad about me.

I can tell you are a dog-lover. Please dont get hysterical.

Sorry for digressing so much OP, but are they doing this because they dislike dogs, or ownership of dogs?

Sadly enough, Culture has become on of the last things I respect. Most of it relies on traditions from the past that are bigoted, immoral, and outdated. Im not racist but I am definitely a culuralist lol.

I didnt insult you. I said not liking something just because of what it is, is bigotry.

So true. And pigs are intelligent. All animals should be respected. How do Iranians feel about cats?
