A Muslim minicab driver refused to take a blind passenger because her guide dog was "unclean".
Abdul Rasheed Majekodumni told Jane Vernon she could not get into his car with the dog because of his religion.
Islamic tradition warns Muslims against contact with dogs because they are seen as impure.
The case emerged as Jack Straw was embroiled in a controversy over Muslim women wearing veils and the row continued after a Muslim police officer was excused guard duty at the Israeli embassy. Today Mrs Vernon, 39, from Hammersmith, said: "This experience was very upsetting.
"I was tired and cold and just wanted to get home but this driver made me feel like I was a second-class citizen, like I didn't count at all."
Mrs Vernon, who works as a legal officer for the Royal National Institute for the Blind, added: "The owner of the minicab firm, Niven Sinclair, was also very insensitive, telling me that what had happened to me wasn't really very important, and I should have more respect for other people's culture. They have shown very little respect for my rights as a disabled person and have never once offered me an apology."

The SPCA kennels are exponentially cleaner than the cells of Abu Ghraib and Gitmo.
Instead of euthanizing our unwanted pound dogs we should ship every single one to Muslim terrorist nests. Watch the Moose cringe and run.
A taxi is required to accomodate the public, just as surely as a restaurant or hotel. The biases of the driver, as far as which passengers to pick up, should not legally be entering into the picture. There's a lawsuit in there, somewhere.
Mecca is a muslim only city. Saudi Arabia does not permit Jews to enter.
Why are we surprised that the Islamic supremacists are acting more and more on their supremacist ideology and shunning contact and business duty to deal with people of other faiths (kufir).
There was a muslim officer who refused to guard the Israeli embassy as he did not support Israel. There is a muslim only hospital being constructed in Holland (with separate wings for men and women). And here in the US cabs are now being IDed to let passengers know if they will have a problem attempting to transport alcohol in a muslim operated cab.
And to this we are supposed to show tolerance? Where was tolerance ever proscribed for dealing with the Klan? We can denounce discrimination when we see it.
ADA meets TROP
When worlds collide................
Do muslim cabbies pickup queer folks in san francisco ?
Bwahahaha I was gonna say the same thing...
What a dog, he donated his collar and leash.
What religoin was the dog?
Pot Kettle Black
Just reminded me of this Star Trek episode. We should send our canine friends to the Muzzies and watch 'em freak...
[asking about the tribbles]
Capt. Kirk: Scott, you didn't transport them into space did you?
Scotty: Captain Kirk, that'd be inhuman.
Capt. Kirk: Well, where are they?
Scotty: I gave them a very good home, sir.
Capt. Kirk: WHERE?
Scotty: I gave 'em to the Klingons, sir.
Capt. Kirk: You gave them to the Klingons?
Scotty: Aye, sir. Before they went into warp, I transported the whole kit'n kaboodle into their engine room, where they'll be no tribble at all.
An outrage indeed. And it is not going to stop there. Just think of all those ways we are not allowed to celebrate our very own culture any more, such as bans on christmas trees and what not.
The way to handle cases like this would be a boycott. After the cartoon crisis in Denmark (you remember that, don't you?), a lot of people ordering taxi services over the phone, mentioned that they are taking their dog along. Even though they don't really own a dog, they mean to make this point: "Don't send me one of your muslim drivers, and if you do, I'll call an other taxi company."
I'm going to walk the dogs, and if we walk too far, I'll take a cab home.
The driver was fined, according to the source article.
Sounds to me like Muslims cannot legally be cab drivers. Oh well..
How wrong is that you going turn away a blind person who has SEEING EYE DOG NOT COOL muslum
Big wup! He should be fired.
