Sudanese TeddyGate Follow-Up

Good to see a few moderate Islamic blogs expressing their disgust at the TeddyGate affair. Emirati and The Sudanese Thinker are a couple of welcome Muslim voices who recognise the damage this does to the worldwide image of their religion. Well done guys!

Update: 29-11-07
She has been sentenced to 15 days in jail followed by deportation. This has to be one of the sickest stories I have ever heard. Shame on the Sudanese Government and Islamist extremists everywhere. [Sound of puking offstage].

Same with Nzingha - she has a camel call Muhammad!

Doesn't this say more about the positive side of religion that when naming their toys, the first name that children/people think of is the name of the prophet? I would take it a compliment and a vindication of their faith - not the other way around as some of these over-R.C. (Religiously Correct) idiots are doing.

What those sharia judges have failed to realize is the following:
1)Muhammad is a very popular name in Muslim countries
2) It was the kids that named the bear "Muhammad"
3)They might not have been thinking of the Prophet, but of your everyday Bill or Tom.

the sentencing and deportation is unwarranted.

The Sudanese sharia judges have insulted Islam, and so have their Islamist supporters.

I feel sorry for her but she's lucky that she is free.

Sudanes are well known to be vary strick when it comes to their belives & its well known in their history.

Now you may expect a revolution or internal conflicts in Sudan because of that, they are just looking for a reason for to over power the current government.

Hi! Your blog is of interest to me, as I am a Spaniard (from Madrid, and where I am currently writing from) who is moving to Dubai in February--the opposite path from what you've taken! I'd really appreciate any advice or updates--I'd gladly provide that for your new adoptive city, if you'd wish.

¡Feliz año!
