The BBC have reported that a British schoolteacher has been arrested in Sudan accused of insulting Islam’s Prophet, after she allowed her pupils to name a teddy bear Muhammad. Apparently this isn’t an insult because it was a teddy bear called Muhammad but rather that it is seen as an insult to Islam to attempt to make an image of the Prophet Muhammad.
The ironic thing is that it was the children in here class which voted for the name out of a list including Abdullah and Hassan. Twenty out of the 23 children chose Muhammad as their favourite name.
Can anyone with a rational mind imagine that Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, was actually trying to make an image or icon of Muhammad!!!! I don’t.
