A mosque leader in Taman Lavender Heights, has denied any involvement in the deaths of several dogs, believed to have been poisoned, in the housing estate. The Ibnu Khaldun mosque chairman, Mohd Asna Amin, also said he was referring the case to the police for investigation after pictures of the dead-by-poisoning dogs went viral on the internet.
FreeMalaysiaToday“ (h/t Religion of Peace) I firmly state that this does not directly affect the mosque and has nothing to do with me, I only knew about the incident of the dead dogs after it went viral recently. So I am leaving it to the police to probe the matter,” he said at a press conference today.
Asna pointed out that one of the pictures which showed the dog consuming food which was allegedly laced with poison had been taken in 2018, while another picture, presumably of the same dog that died, was taken on Jan 5. Asna said that is impossible for the dog to have died recently if it had consumed the poison last year.
He added while wild dogs roaming in the vicinity of the mosque has been an issue for quite some time, the mosque only complained to the local authorities and the Veterinary Department.
“Many complaints have been made and we are still waiting for the authorities to take action. The wild dogs are at the mosque and they chase children and the tahfiz students in the area,” he said.
Poisoning is a popular way for Muslims around the world to get rid of dogs.

“Many complaints have been made and we are still waiting for the authorities to take action … the wild dogs are at the mosque and they chase children and the tahfiz students in the area,” he said. Meanwhile, Paroi state assemblyman Mohamad Taufek Abd Ghani said the public should not link the incident to racial or religious issues.
“What is important is how we maintain solidarity among the people. I understand that there are difficulties in dealing with the wild dog issue because we talked with non-governmental organisations who objected to it, but we must ensure that no children are bitten by the dogs as it could lead to diseases,” he said.
“Dog Jihad”- How Muslims, who share a religious quaranic hatred of dogs, get rid of the problem.
In the Islamic Republic of Iran, they inject stray dogs with acid to kill them in the most agonizing way. Dogs and puppies die screaming in excruciating pain as their internal organs and tissues are chemically burned with acid.
