Skip to comments.Blind passenger hounded off bus because of his dog (You guessed it: Muslims again)
Posted on 06/11/2009 11:34:50 AM PDT by LibWhacker
A driver told a blind cancer sufferer to get off his bus when a woman and her children became hysterical at the sight of his guide dog.
George Herridge, 71, told how the mum flew into a rage and shouted at him in a foreign language. A passenger explained she wanted him to get off the bus during the incident on May 20.
Mr Herridge, from Tern Close, Tilehurst, said: Her child was kicking and screaming and someone off the bus told me her child was frightened of my dog. The driver said, Look mate, cant you get off?
I stood my ground. I had not done anything, my dog had not done anything and I was getting off the bus for no one.
The retired NHS worker claimed he was forced off a bus by a driver after a similar encounter last summer.
And a day after the latest bus incident an lady began screaming I dont like dirty dogs at Mr Herridge at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
A week earlier he faced further animosity from a couple at Asda in The Meadway, he said.
He is unsure what has provoked outbursts but said he thinks some have come from Asian people and that it may be due to religious or cultural differences.
If the people who were upset were Muslim, they consider dogs to be ritually unclean.
Some may have them as pets but keep them in a separate living area. Anything coming into contact with its saliva, such as clothes, must be washed seven times if they intend to pray in those clothes.
Mr Herridge said: I do not expect any special treatment but just to be left in peace and live my life the best I can.
Reading Buses accepted the driver was wrong but had been placed in an impossible situation.
Drivers have been re-instructed to convey the blind and the bus company has sought advice from the Royal National Institute for the Blind and hopes to speak with Muslim leaders.
As part of a Muslim Council of Britain project, Mufti Zubair Butt, Sharia advisor to Muslim Spiritual Care Provision in the NHS, admitted Muslims require some education on guide dogs.
In response to concerns raised about guide dogs in mid-2008, he said: It is important that one does not impose ones own understanding upon others, but one shows understanding and compassion for others, their needs and their views, especially in an open communal space and in a country where Muslims are living as a minority.
You won’t find a LIONS Club in an Arab/Muslim country. They’re not to keen on the Blind.
You guessed it. England again ....
I see the ownership in a bus company in his future.
The Brits have been castrated.
Id rather sit next to a filthy dog licking his private part than a muzzie minding his business.
This woman should have been the one kicked off the bus, and even better out of the UK altogether.
Who leads blind moosies around, monkeys,
or do they hate all animals? Are the vegetarians?
Never mind, I don’t really care.
gee, let’s see-there is, thanks to liberal thought(oxymoron) a “wall of seperation” between church and state in this country.
The muzzies religious sensibilies were offended by the dog on a STATE mode of public transportation. Their religion or religious beliefs lack “standing” when it comes to public accomodations.
They should have gotten their berqua wearing asses off of the bus.
Uhh--no he wasn't. Kick the mother and children off the bus for causing a scene.
Muzzies shun the mentally and physically handicapped. Ask anyone who has had the misfortune to know them.
I be so suing I wonder if any Brit attorney would take this dude to court
I doubt it I could be wrong
This so stupid. I wonder if the Muslims were in the country legally. Aside from that; they are in another country and get over it or take another form of transportatioin.
“in a country where Muslims are living in a minority”
Not their plans, though, is it?
Bye bye, Lassie.
And Pakis who wipe their asses with their hands are clean?
LOL, I see a reading problem, this happened in Britain.
Unbelievable the driver kicked the poor blind guy off. %#$&@! should be fired.
I misread your line. I thought it said “holding his business” and I
had to think about that because it seems they are pre-occupied with sex
be it virgins or having to cover the women up least they become aroused, I guess. They must have such a boring, depressing life that all they have in their mind is sex.
LMAO! But I agree.
"I don't like screaming women and their dirty kids" ~ The Guide Dog
Pow! Best one I’ve seen in a long time!
It’s good, because it’s true!
They don’t have an problems with sheep..cute ones of course.
Islam is a very sensual instead of spiritual religion.
It is all about the flesh and fulfilling the desires of this world.
The Bible describes this orientation as “worldly”, and as serving the “prince of this world”, ie, Satan.
Yet, Muslims and Arabs will kiss their camels.
Best solution is for Moslems in UK to simply not risk encountering a dog on a bus by NOT GETTING ON BUSES. Allah gave them legs to walk, so it’s time for them to get with the program.
The highest number of all.
They have already insured their survival by not aborting.
Impossible situation? Telling the screaming muzzie to get off the bus if she's so offended. If I lived in Europe today, I'd be making plans to move to the U.S. or Australia.
Not only that, but they know how to take over these countries.
Go to the ones with the generous social programs,
pop out kids, let other people support them - the ones having 0-2 kids and working their asses off.
My comment on this story is inappropriate and too offensive for FR.
Heard a story from my cousin stationed in Kabul. Said that the inmates there use their left hands to wipe and their right hands to eat. The left hand is considered inferior and left handed folks are forced to learn how to write with their right hands. Left is bad... right is good... sounds like they’ve got something right?
I’m all for reasonable accomodation of religious beliefs, but this is NOT reasonable!
Simple solution: put the friggin' complainers off the friggin' bus.
Aren't there anti-discrimination laws in Britain?
The U.S. government has dumped millions of these same types of people, right into our own country...
The more people I meet, the more I love my German Shepherd.
Oh HELL no! In his place I would have had my dog urinate on the filthy ragheads. In fact , the policy should be changed to allow passengers with ANY dogs onboard.
You fight these barbarians one incident at a time.
Wait- England is doomed. When Elizabeth dies Chuck will hand the place over to the Muslims.
Death by inches- that’s what’s happening to modern civilization.
Spoken like true cowards.
If this was in the United States, it would be a huge violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Lady and her stupid brats should have been kicked off the bus.
Absolutely classic doublespeak That statement is a series of double meanings for “the faithful” and pure “what they want to hear” BS for the unbelievers. Anyone familiar with Muslim culture would recognize it.
Muslims never have and never will have any intention of respecting anything except Islam and fellow Muslims. When they have no unbelievers to attack or conspire against, they attack and conspire against one another over trivial imagined insults and arguments about who is the most faithful.
Islam IS submission, and true submission dictates that they either “kill the unbelievers wherever they may find them” or be declared apostate. Only when they've wiped out the unbelievers, divided up the loot and women or children taken for slaves, can they get back to the really serious business of killing one another.
It's that simple, everything else is just noise.
have a nice day
Ummm....Muslims require education on a great many things besides guide dogs. A great, many things.

Hey!!!! My mom is left handed and she is pretty darned Conservative leaning.
“the inmates there use their left hands to wipe and their right hands to eat. The left hand is considered inferior and left handed folks are forced to learn how to write with their right hands.”
I just don’t get all the obsession with body parts & bodily functions. Reminds me of the days before Christ when there were all those rituals one had to perform. Sacrificing animals and such. If they only had a savior! Well they do but his name isn’t Mohamed.
If I am ever on a bus and someone raises a stink over someone with a dog, blind or other wise, i think i am going to raise a stink right back at them and try to rally the rest of they bystanders to my side.
This shit has got to stop. People with true genuine disabilities should not be discriminated against in the name of political correctness. And this is coming from someone who won’t pet a dog unless I can wash my hands afterwords.
The blind deserve at the very least tolerance of their helper animals and if your religion doesn’t like it then too damn bad.
Sad to watch formerly great Britain sink to this level, to pacify the muslim invaders.
admitted Muslims require some education on guide dogs
Wow! I can’t believe that this was stated. That is a start at least. Normally they don’t even recognize when they are wrong.
Pathetic. Goodbye, Great Britain.
