KHARTOUM, Sudan - A British teacher was arrested in Sudan for allegedly insulting Islam by naming a teddy bear Muhammad, taken as a reference to Islam’s prophet and founder, the Sudan Media Center said yesterday.
The teacher, who wrote the name on the bear, was in custody and being interrogated yesterday. She was arrested Sunday after the Ministry of Education filed a complaint, acting on behalf of a parent of one of her students. - Source: Associated Press
Muhammad is a very popular name in Muslim countries so it is semi-puzzling to hear of this arrest.
