Malaysian columnist Marhaini Kamaruddin condemning an event near Kuala Lumpur that encouraged the touching and petting of dogs:
“I feel that it is not the negative perception Muslims have towards dogs which needs to be corrected, but the negative perception non-Muslims have on why Muslims cannot touch dogs which needs proper explanation and comprehension. Unless we want to purposely cause provocation, there is no need for this type of campaign to be held.”
QT might have had something to say here.
But it suddenly feels the desire to go pet its dog.
And then pet Buddy the dog again.
Whatever negative perceptions that might entail.
