Hoekom jy my haat Asked: Should Moslem Taxi Drivers be allowed to refuse service to Blind People due to their dog?
I've seen a few reports of moslem taxi drivers refusing to pick up blind people because of their religious proscriptions against dogs.
Whose rights are paramount; the religious rights of the taxi driver, or the civil rights of the blind person?

Answer by chazi
Guide dogs are the only dogs allowed to go where other dogs are not allowed ie shops etc. To refuse to take a blind person because they have a dog is deplorable and discriminating.
How would muslims like it if they were refused services because a person didn't like muslims. The cries of being racially abused would be deafening.
This practise needs to nipped in the bud and quickly.
