Shame on the Swiss government for this act of murder!!!!!!!

August 01, 2022, 08:48:12 pm Ruhi_Rose: As-Salam Alaykum MV guests. Just a reminder how time flies. We're already in the Islamic new year of 1444 month of Muharram, a very tragic time of our history. May The Almighty grant Hussein bin Ali and his comrades the best spot in Paradise for their unflinching courage to uphold the values of the Final Message, The Noble Quran.  Please read our post Ashura - who was Hussein? Also explore its related links.

Husseyn: Salaam all.  Today is 1st Dhul Hijja 1443 (corresponding to June 30, 2022).  Day of Arafah will be on 9th Dhul Hijja (July 8th) and Eid-al-Adha on 10th Dhul Hijja (July 9th). Fasting on the Day of Arafah is not obligatory, however it's a good day to observe a nafl fast for those healthy enough to do so.  Insh'Allah.

In a own called Reconvilierd in Switzerland, dog owners are required to pay a $50 tax on dogs, failing which, the despicable Swiss government has made itself entitled to take away their dogs and kill them. 

Before you read the entire story ahead, let me remind you again:  can you imagine the furore around the world if this rule was imposed in a Muslim country?  Instead it's upheld in the heart of Europe, in a country that's supposed to be the center of modern western culture.

Don't pay taxes on your dog?  Then the government will kill your dog

Nope, we did not make this up.

If you live in the town of Reconvilierd in Switzerland and don’t pay taxes on your dog, the government will give you an ultimatum: pay up or your pooch dies.

In a town of 2,245 humans and 280 dogs, an OLD law from 1904 that says if people do not pay a $50 dollar dog tax, the town may be able to seize and execute the dog in question.

No, wait. Don’t get mad just yet. It gets better.

Pierre-Alain Nemitz, a local official in Reconvilier, says:

“This isn’t about a mass execution of dogs. It’s meant to put pressure on people who don’t cooperate.”

What’s even more scary is that this local government doesn’t believe in humane execution either. When asked about a dog related problems 30 or so years ago. Nemitz replied:

“A lethal injection is sentimentality. We took them to a knacker’s yard, shot them in the head, and it was done…Euthanasia is for humans, and in our era, we’re not going to dilute the truth.”

Now the readers need to remember this – this town does NOT have a dog overpopulation problem. Dogs do not overrun the city. Dogs are not overbreeding. The dogs are not attacking little children  nor are they biting anyone (well, not ALL of them everyday, anyway). People are not breeding them in puppy mills to make a profit like they do in Missouri.

The innocent dogs are being targeted because the owners do not pay dog tax.

This brings up a couple of points:

1. This isn’t like the US “government sponsored” shelters putting dogs to sleep because they either cannot behave or that the shelter can no longer (financially or physically) hold the unwanted dogs, and are HUMANELY euthanized. The Swiss government is punishing-killing dogs in HOPES of punishing the dog owners.

2. It will cost AS much money to euthanize a dog humanely (assuming that they do it humanely) as it is for the owner to pay the dog tax. This makes no sense. It’s like spending a dollar to punish someone who will HOPEFULLY pay you a dollar. Apparently, the Swiss government officials don’t need to pass elementary school math to get elected.

3. Why did US leave Switzerland alone during WWII? If we could go back in time, maybe we need to rethink the whole leave-the-neutral-country-alone thing.
