Iran: Four months in jail and 30 lashes for walking dog in streets

Tehran, 19 Feb.(AKI) - A 70-year-old man has been sentenced by an Iranian judge to four months in jail and 30 lashes for going out on the street with his dog.

The incident took place in Shahr Rey, a suburb of Tehran when the owner of the dog was caught by a police who quickly handcuffed the man. He was later charged by an Islamic judge for "disturbing the public order".

The sentence, seems to want to panic the owners of dogs that despite repeated warnings by the police, continue to defy the authorities by taking their dogs outside their homes.

President Ahmadinejad recently provoked debate in Iran about dog ownership when he took possession of four guard dogs, bought in Germany at a cost of 110,000 euros each.

The dogs are at the centre of a theological controversy because Islam considers dogs to be impure.

For this reason, the government has banned owners of domestic animals from taking them on the streets of the city, and owners risk fines or the 'detention' of their animals in a pound.

"The purchase of these dogs was authorised by a fatwa issued by several ayatollahs who approved the use of these animals if the only goal was to guarantee personal security and not infringe on any religious rule," said Iran's semi-official news agency Fars.

It is mad behaviour and ridiculous laws like these that the non-muslims believe to be representative of islam thanks to the number 2 islamic stupid rules. Can't they ever read the quran about how dogs are mentioned as useful for hunting and even as companions to people of the cave. Pity the poor old man who probably used the dog as a companion in his old age. This is sad and ridiculous. Till muslims return to the quran en masse they will inflict misery on themselves and others around them. Hope that fellow muslims will start to reflect on quran again!!Peace..

18:18 You would have thought that they were awake, even when they slept. (They remained alert round the clock.) We made them change their positions right and left, frequently. They had a faithful dog to guard the entrance, with its four paws outstretched (ready to pounce). The whole environment was awe-inspiring. Had you come upon them
suddenly, you would have fled away from them in awe.

Salaams all

On this topic, when I read chapter The Cave (18) again, the following verse stood out like a beacon on this topic:

18:15 “The people of our nation are obeying false authorities instead of Him, without any clear evidence to support their behavior. And who does greater wrong than he who invents a lie about God?”

The N21 with their mullahs are doing that exactly by their violation of the 70 odd year old uncle who is just a compasionate human being. This is exactly the results of following false authorities.

Shukran again to all of my beacon family.
