‘I Want To Touch A Dog’ – Apa Kata JAKIM?

KUALA TERENGGANU, Oct 20 (Bernama) — Islamic Development Department (JAKIM) will conduct a thorough investigation on the organising of the “I Want To Touch A Dog” event that took place at Central Park, One Utama near Petaling Jaya Sunday.

JAKIM director-general Datuk Othman Mustapha said the programme should not have taken place and JAKIM regretted the irresponsible attitude of the organisers who were not concerned with the sensitivities of Muslims in the country.

“This event has never been held previously and is the first time being exposed to the community. We are Muslims and our religion has stated clearly the penalty regarding dogs.

“JAKIM will investigate the matter immediately and any action will be referred to the existing provisions,” Othman told reporters after officiating the national level religious school principals conference in Kuala Terengganu, Sunday night.

He was commenting on the organising of the programme that received overwhelming response from Muslims in and around the federal capital on Sunday.
