A British school teacher has been arrested in Sudan accused of insulting Islam's Prophet, after she allowed her pupils to name a teddy bear Muhammad.

Colleagues of Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, said she made an "innocent mistake" by letting the six and seven-year-olds choose the name.

Ms Gibbons was arrested after several parents made complaints.

The BBC's correspondent Amber Henshaw said Ms Gibbons' punishment could be up to six months in jail, 40 lashes or a fine.
Seems a tad extreme to me...

Yeah, but what if someone got a sack of sh1t, tied it round the middle with baler twine and called it our Prime Minister? You wouldn't find that so funny, would you???

Has she spent the last few years living in a cave?
The reaction may be a bit extreme, but surely we are all now aware of Muslim sensitivities.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to save the terminally dopey from themselves.

They forgot to mention that the Teddy Bear was dressed up as a Rabbi.

Muslims. Get a fcuking grip please, enough of this drivel.

It just seems that everytime Muhammad is mentioned, some lunatic has too make a song and dance about it.

My views on Religion? Its a book for f***s sake, bible, koran, whatever.

No truth, no substance and just an excuse to have a war. Absolute bol*ocks.

Hey, come on, I know that the report says that the teacher was a scouser but there is no need to be that rude.

Personally i am outraged that the muslims are outraged.

No, lets not. Lets allow them to punish her as they see fit. Perhaps next time she'll engage brain before opening mouth.
