London, Sept.25 (ANI): A Muslim student has become the first person to be allowed to take a guide dog into a British mosque.
Mahomed-Abraar Khatri, 18, can now enter the Bilal Jamia mosque in Leicester with Vargo after a decision by the Muslim Law (Sharia) Council UK.
Previously, all dogs were banned from mosques because the Islamic faith sees them as being for guarding and hunting only. (ANI)
