The British schoolteacher who allowed her pupils to name a teddy bear Mohammed has been charged in Sudan with insulting religion and inciting hatred, state media has reported.
“Khartoum north prosecution unit has completed its investigation and has charged the Briton Gillian (Gibbons) under Article 125 of the criminal code,” SUNA said quoting a senior Justice Ministry official. It added the file would go before court on Thursday.
Last night, hopes were raised that the teacher would not face harsh penalties, after an embassy official said the “minute” matter would be resolved very quickly.
Dr Khalid al Mubarak, a spokesman for the Sudanese embassy in London, said the police had no choice but to follow procedure following a complaint from a parent, but added that the “minute” issue would be resolved amicably.
“Minute?” Ms. Gibbons faces up to six months in jail, 40 lashes, and a fine. For letting her students name their stuffed animals “Mohammed.”
Here’s how the AP headlined this flabbergasting story: “Briton Charged in Religious Hatred Case.”
Meanwhile, the hate-filled jihadists aren’t satisfied:
