British Teacher Arrested For Naming Teddy bear "Muhammed"

There is probably no toy worldwide that is more innocent than a cute cuddly Teddy Bear. But not to muslims. As part of a class project a British teacher's Sudanese class of young students named the stuffed tyke - Mohammed-and now the muslims officials in Sudan are outraged and see this as an insult to their Prophet and have arrested the teacher, 54 yr. old Gillian Gibbons, under "insult to faith and religion". She may even face 40 lashes for her "blasphemy".


The news story can be found at UK TimesOnline or CNN.
