Mohammed the mole... no sorry it's Morgan

A British children’s author who named a mole Mohammed to promote multiculturalism has renamed it Morgan for fear of offending Muslims.

The author said that he tried “hard to embrace other cultures and I had no idea it would backfire like this. I was in Egypt this year and everyone was called Mohammed. I just thought it was a popular name”.

It's sad that of all people, those who work on educating Muslim kids or promoting tolerance twards Muslims should fear being rewarded with a fatwa or demonstrations calling for their execution.

There is something seriously wrong here.
