Poor Syed.

He claims Muslims cant take dogs into taxis. pointing to Mosaic law in support.
For Jews dogs may be unclean but the prohibition is on eating or touching their carcasses (dead dogs!)
I imagine guide dogs are alive!. I am not aware taxi drivers must actually touch them !
Of course Syed doesn't understand the freedom in Christ for Christians ,who made it clear no foods are unclean. It is what comes out of people's hearts that make them unclean.
Allah/Mohammad didn't understand that either
