Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.-- James A. Froude (1818-1894)

Taxi man offers to ferry blind man with guide dog

This shouldnt be surprising, but it is over here...

Mohd Kamil Affendy Hashim, 32, was inspired to post his phone number after watching a short film directed by Jason Lim entitled ‘Are You Blind’ that related how sight-impaired businessman Stevens Chan and his seeing eye dog Lashawn were always chased out of shopping malls and prevented from boarding taxis and buses.

Mohd Kamil Affendy, also known as Eddie, also posted the message (on Facebook): “I’m Malay and a Muslim. A taxi driver in KL. I stay in Setapak. I support guide dogs. Any blind man with a guide dog who needs a ride, their family and friends can always SMS or WhatsApp me.”
“PS: Every religion in this world taught us to be kind to everyone, in any condition, including animals,” he said.
...Land Public Transport Commission chairman Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar said guide dogs are allowed on public transport when assisting the disabled community.
This was echoed by deputy Transport Minister Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi, who said animal safety by-laws have to be followed in the event of the dogs attacking people.
Eddie welcomes donations of pet food for his furry wards and anyone who uses a guide dog and needs a lift.

He can be reached at 012 396 0821.
