Pakistani Scholar: Dogs And Pigs Are Favorite Animals Of Jews
Prominent Islamic scholar Maulana Abdul Hakim Haqqani, who is based in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province, has said that the use of sniffer dogs to trace criminals is not sanctioned by the shari’a. The Urdu-language newspaper Roznama Mashriq quoted Maulana Haqqani as saying that the use of sniffer dogs is haram, or forbidden in Islam.
According to the report, Haqqani, the Nazim-e-Ala of Darul Uloom Islami Jamhuria at Takht Bhai in the North West Frontier Province, said that Islam does not validate the witness of a single man in any dispute; so, how could a dog be the reason of a man’s insult.
Haqqani said that dogs and pigs are favorite animals of the Jews, according to the report. He also asked the Pakistani government to ban the use of sniffer dogs in the investigation of cases by police.
