It's like this for normal Sudanese all the time - the story of the British teacher in a Sudanese school who is being charged with blasphemy for naming a teddy bear Mohammed, after the children in her Year 2 class (7 year olds) voted for it. I blame the parents.

If Wikepedia is right, then the Islamic conception of blasphemy covers pretty much any criticism or critique you could make of Islamic religion. Nice trump card, a bit like Freud saying that anyone who disagreed with him must have a neurosis.
