I saw this earlier today and I thought to myself – you know – we should be protesting for the execution of these blasphemous protestors but of course we can’t because that’s what makes us moderates.

Still though, I think these people should be arrested for inciting hatred as Gillian Gibson was charged with for allowing her class to name a teddy bear Muhamed (although not convicted of – but she has been convicted of insulting religioin) and they should then be handing out harsher sentences to anyone named Muhamed that is involved in the protest as he has blasphemed the name of our prophet and our religion in his actions.  The protestors I’m sure should have no problem with that.

Such a shame that the positive actions being taken by Muslims become overshadowed by these grossly misguided people.  Hopefully, A Common Word Between Us and You can serve to educate us all.

    I agree. I don’t think that allowing a teddy bear to be named “Muhammad” qualifies for an insult to either Islam or the Prophet, peace be unto him.

    Was there an intent to insult ? It was afterall the child, as I understand from reading about the issue, who had chosen that name. It was not like she purposed the name; it’s not like she deliberately named or suggested that teddy bear be named AFTER the Prophet.

    And it is actually an insult to name a cute cuddly teddy “Muhammad” ? Yes, to protect his sacred honour and for our love for him, the beloved of the Beloved, it may not be appropriate but does it qualify as an insult ?

    Ignorance is a terrible thing, and I’m taking about the Sudanese who went in the streets of Khartoum calling for her execution.

    There are so-called Muslims, named deliberately AFTER the Prophet, who are thieves, drunkards, liars and generally menaces to society. Talking about insult ! Now that’s a genuine insult to the Prophet !

    There are thought police in every religion, trying not only to tell you what to do, but what and how to think. Muslims in poor and male dominated cultures seem to be the most virulent at it though. Education is the key to tolerance, and hopefully the children will not let this lesson discourage them. Muhammad is the most popular name in the world for a boy now, so of course they named the teddy bear that, without any disrespect.

    Ya Haqq!

    firham – that’s exactly it we name our children Muhamed who then go on to do more things to insult him but when it comes to naming a teddy bear … this makes me want to scream!

    Irving – Very true, education is key!

    I have been quiet for some time because I do not want to appear to only comment on negative matters. So I will continue to rage against the injustices in Saudi Arabia and the Sudan (not all Islam-related although Islam-blamed) quietly.

    What I will comment on is the reasoned and wonderful commenters you have gathered together. They are always a joy to read. As are your posts.
