This article doesn’t mention the most likely reason why this is happening, and that is probably because the New York Post knows that printing the truth would be “Islamophobic”: the Uber driver was Muslim, and Islam hates dogs: “Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, ‘We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.’” — Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50
“Abdullah (b. Umar) (Allah be pleased with them) reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) ordered the killing of dogs and we would send (men) in Medina and its corners and we did not spare any dog that we did not kill, so much so that we killed the dog that accompanied the wet she-camel belonging to the people of the desert.” — Sahih Muslim 3811
“Ibn Mughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e. about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog for hunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: When the dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earth the eighth time.” — Sahih Muslim 551
“Uber driver attacks pregnant woman’s service dog: cops,” by Daniel Prendergast, Danielle Furfaro and Natalie Musumeci, New York Post, January 26, 2016 (thanks to Bulldog):
An Uber driver yanked a nine-months-pregnant passenger’s service dog from her and slammed the pooch onto a Manhattan street because he did not want the animal in his car, cops said on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old Manhattan woman got into Muhammad Qayyum’s cab with her dog, named Brooklyn, at around 7:25 p.m. on Broadway near West 56th Street on Jan. 21, police said.
“I will not take your dog in my car,” Qayyum, 23, told the woman, according to cops.
Mojeh Adams Schaniel told the driver that the silky terrier is her service dog, but Qayyum didn’t care. He got out of the vehicle, opened the rear passenger door and snatched the dog out of the woman’s lap by its leash and threw it to the ground, police said.
The dog suffered a dislocated hip and an injury to its right back leg, according to a criminal complaint filed with the Manhattan DA’s office.
The owner took her service dog to Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners on West 57th Street, where the animal underwent surgery, police said.
Qayyum was arrested on charges of aggravated cruelty to animals and harming a service animal in the second-degree.
He was released without bail and an order of protection was placed against him, the DA said.
The driver, in a canny and completely unprecedented move, is claiming victim status:
Qayyum denied harming the pooch and claimed that the woman punched him in the face multiple times and made “racist, religiously disparaging slurs,” said an Uber spokeswoman, who noted that all of its drivers are required to accommodate service animals.
According to the spokeswoman, Qayyum’s and the woman’s Uber accounts have been suspended pending an investigation into the matter….
