Dorje Gurung, a chemistry teacher who has taught all over the world (Hong Kong, Norway, the USA, Azerbaijan, Malawi and Qatar) has been jailed in Qatar on charges of insulting Islam.

 

I believe that a grave injustice has been done. 

 

 

 

Because he is Nepali, some 12 year old students were making fun of him, stereotyping.

 

Among other things, the seventh graders poked fun at his appearance, calling him “Jackie Chan,” a famous Chinese actor, the Washington Post reported.

 

He asked a rhetorical question, and they reported it as a statement. Now he is in jail for insulting Islam.
