But one man, Syed Azmi has started a very interesting event called "I want to touch a dog" happening on next Sunday, the 19th of October 2014.
The visitors to the event will consist of both dog owners and not dog owners. The dog owners will be there to control and lend their dogs to be touched.
The other people going will mostly be non dog owners or SCARED of dogs or CURIOUS of dogs or wanting to LEARN about dogs and the religious issues on them. These are the people Syed Azmi, the founder and organizer is targeting on awareness. The event is however opened to all walks of life. All public. Everybody. Period!

Other guests who will be there includes Ustaz Mohd Iqbal Parjin and also KPB Tuan Mohd Jamil Mohd Khalid of TTDI
For the muslims, there will be a talk about sertu/samak as well as practical on it.
The main reason is to overcome fear, just pat/touch and for the muslim, to do proper cleansing.
But if it is actually too sensitive for anyone, please clarify it first before it becomes fitnah.
