A PUPPY postcard advertising Tayside Police’s new non-emergency telephone number has prompted complaints from members of the Islamic community.
The choice of image on the card —a black dog sitting in a police officer’s hat has now been raised with Chief Constable John Vine.
It is understood that Muslims have been upset by it because dogs are considered ritually unclean. Some shopkeepers have been refusing to display the advert.
Dundee councillor Mohammed Asif said last night, “My concern was that it’s not welcomed by all communities, with the dog on the cards. It was probably a waste of resources going to these communities.
“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.”
First they silence the bloggers for alleged offenses against Islam, now police puppies? Who is next? The puppy is lucky he was not thrown in the pound for violating the 2006 Racial and Religious Hatred Act
This is dog-gone scary!
