For three years, a Yorkshire teacher has lived in hiding, tormented by threats after showing his students a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad. The Times has more.
A teacher who prompted protests in a small Yorkshire town after showing his students a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad remains in hiding nearly three years on and is unlikely ever to return home, his family say.
The man, who was head of religious studies at Batley Grammar School in West Yorkshire, presented a drawing taken from the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo during one of his classes, provoking several days of demonstrations outside the school gates.
He was put into police protection after allegedly receiving death threats and now lives with his partner and four children under an assumed name in a secret location outside Yorkshire.
The incident in March 2021 came five months after the murder of Samuel Paty, 47, a teacher in France beheaded by an Islamist terrorist after showing pupils a cartoon of the prophet from the same magazine.
