‘Mohhy bear’ teacher pardoned
54-year-old Gillian Gibbons had urged pupils to call a teddy bear their favourite name. And didn’t stop them when they chose Mohammad.
Naming an animal after the Prophet is considered unacceptable by many Muslims. She was sentenced to 15 days in jail but was pardoned by the Sudanese President and released after just eight days.
She flew back to London via Dubai, accompanied by British Muslim peers Baroness Warsi and Lord Ahmed.
