    Salaaam Lackshmi. I am a cuddly little Teddy Bear named Mohammed. I used to play with the children at a school for girls. We had wonderful times together, except for that one time when Fatima, a rumbunctious child once tore my ear off. she didn't mean it, & we continued to be friends. There was a lovely teacher who spoke Arabic in a weird accent. But she was kind, and made sure I was clean. Now I have heard that this kindly woman is to receive a punishment for naming me Mohammed. Forty five lashes for adopting little ole moi. Lackshmi I am sure that you have a good soul and care about the innocent. Can you please write a letter and plead for this kindly woman to be freed. Thank you Lackshmi, I am sure that you are as distressed as I am.
