Muhammad’s War on Dogs run time 4:39
Dogs are considered najes (unclean) in Islam and police often stop and fine dog walkers. However, Iran’s authorities have stated that dogs with a clear role — such as guarding property or guiding the blind — are permitted.

BARBARIC KILLINGS OF DOGS WITH BURNING ACID run time 2:41 seconds
“Keeping and caring for dogs is haram (forbidden) according to religious leaders,” Boosaidi told the Fars news agency on June 19. “If we find out that anyone is keeping and caring for dogs and so is promoting vulgar Western culture, we will deal with them firmly.”
Dog owners used to be able to keep their pets safe by regularly paying fines but Tehran police announced police would capture every dog they encountered and kill. The official reason given is said to be religious: Iran’s Islamic law forbids the possession of dogs, considered to be “impure” animals.
At Shahr Rey, a suburb of Tehran, 70-year-old man was caught walking his pet dog on the street and he was arrested, sentenced to four months in jail and given 30 lashes. An Islamic judge charged the man for “disturbing the public order.”
Stray dogs are poisoned or shot to death in residential streets by city workers, while others are buried alive after being thrown into deeply dug grave-pits (especially black dogs). Government workers randomly shoot at helpless dogs, which leave many injured. Howling and whimpering, dogs are then buried alive.
Being a dog owner is something many people take pride in and enjoy. In Iran however, the role of caring for a dog can come with a price.
In many instances, Iranian officials inject acid into stray dogs causing a slow, agonizing death. The dogs and puppies scream in excruciating pain as their internal organs and tissues are chemically burned with the acid.
In the following video, instead of using a lethal but humane method, Iranian officials choose the least expensive poison – an acid that will corrode the animals’ guts while the dog is still alive, causing him to shriek in agony, such is the horrendous pain he experiences. It takes him several minutes to die. (original video)
Of course Muslim cruelty is not limited to Iran.
