    Teddy Bear Incident...

    Please dont post any crazy racist comments in here!!!!

    A week ago you might have heard of the incident in Sudan involving a british woman who had allowed a class of primary kids to name a teddy..

    Well who would have thought it would go this far - http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/...295080,00.html

    Now I am all for respecting peoples religion but this is a TAD extreme IMO. Lets just hope that common sense prevails and she is allowed to come home in one piece.

    Like said above, please keep any racist comments to yourself but feel free to voice sensible comments/thoughts on this incident.
    Mr Sploodge, Accept No Imitations!

    I really do think this is daft to lock up a woman for what i think is trivial!!! the name Mohammed, i thought was quite common place for those in that community, almost like John or james is here. If the name is so sacred, why is it used so widely in there male names???

    I honestly think shes just being made an example of, it's more of a political protest against england and the association with america, rather than a protest against one woman and her school class naming a soft toy.

    It just goes to show that religion can make some people utterly misguided and dogmatic.

    The fact that some protestors were 'shaming' the UK for what is clearly an innocent misunderstanding, shows the extreme intolerance that religion can bring, when it is taught in the wrong way to people who have perhaps not had the privelage (or the right to) a modern education.

    IIRC Mohammed is used to denote the head of a family??

    Anybody who has a vague knoledge of the history of religion will know religion has caused upset between other religions since the day religion was invented. I can understand a difference of opinion, but come on naming a teddy bear! Just why?

    Just one more thing to add to the list that upsets muslims.

    The whole thing is bloody rediculous, and now they are saying 15 days in prison is to leneant and they want her shot.
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.
    Then again............

    People who site religion as the casue of their offence do not seem to worry about causing offence to others it thier religion demands certain actions.

    Can you see a Muslim contry allowing a christian church to open?

    Send her home to a hero's welcome and lets all get on with each other!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
