Muslims seething: Obama security dog has Arabic name

Oy, how could they be so insensitive? The security for President Obama in India includes a military working dog named Khan (Hat Tip: Jihad Watch).
Muslims in Mumbai are up in arms against a United States military sniffer dog allegedly with name tag of 'Khan' that has landed in the city as part of President Barack Obama security arrangements.

On Tuesday, the German Shepherd arrived in the Mumbai airport from a Hercules C130 transport plane. The German Shepherd allegedly had a tag around its neck which read 'MWD Khan.' MWD stands for Military Working Dog. Khan is alleged to be the name of the dog.

Angry Muslims in the city and the state are threatening to protest this 'insult' to the community.

The issue became a rage when a tabloid had reported the incident and quoted veteran actor Raza Murad objecting to the dog being named 'Khan.'


Prominent Muslim religious heads have expressed anger and dismay on the information of a US dog being named 'Khan.' Maulana Syed Athar Ali said that it is a known fact that Muslims detest pigs and dogs.

"To name a dog a Muslim name by US security agencies is to deliberately incite the Muslim community. We would be meeting soon and devise a strategy to protest and seek apology from the US," said Maulana Athar Ali.
If I bought a dog, I'd think about naming it Khan too.

Silly rabbit, the dog is named after the Star Trek charcter played by Ricardo Montalban!

amazingly enough, the dog was briefly owned as a shelter rescue pup by a very famous American Jewish novelist--that's right, the Roth of Khan.
