Chaos over a teacherÔ??s remarks in Sudan
Dec 01: The world seems to have come to a standstill over religious fanaticism; which has given sleepless night to a Teacher who named a teddy bear, Mohammad is facing all the resentment of people of Sudan who wants her execution for insulting Islam.
Gillian Gibbons, a teacher with private school who asked her pupil to name a teddy bear as Mohammad under class project was handed 15 days imprisonment, but the fundamentalist held a demonstration with sword asking the government to kill her.
Many protested the sentence as insufficient in fear of criticism from human rights organisations, according to Sudan’s penal code Gibbon could have faced 40 lashes, a fine and a year of jail while some branded her as an agent who is on mission to transform Sudan into a Christian state.
The reaction has sent a shock wave to many in Britain who are working to get her released soon even Muslim groups in Britain and United States had criticise the move of Sudanese government saying that she should not have been tried.
This can be seen in the light that this nation opposes Western countries and see them as conspiring to blockade Islam.
Gibbons's lawyer said, “Given the strong religious feeling in Sudan, "if you tell the people that someone has done such and such, they get angry ... without finding out what exactly happened - the facts, the reality."
“By prosecuting Gibbons, the government may have been trying to raise public anger to bolster its resistance to include Western participation in the United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force that is supposed to deploy in Darfur, he added further.
UN has also condemned the trial as over reaction. Sudan has a long history of resisting UN peacekeepers disapproving them but had bowed down against the international pressure.
Sudan with humanitarian crisis has known to carry genocide on non-Muslim people. Sudan has had a troubled relationship with many of its neighbours and much of the international community due to what is viewed as its aggressively Islamic stance.
This incident has focused on the growing intolerance among followers of various religions.
