Local Muslim group reclaiming 'Islam' with 'MyJihad' campaign
by Tina Sfondeles
A month after an ultra conservative group plastered controversial "Defeat Jihad" ads on 10 CTA buses and likened Muslims to "savages," a local Muslim group countered back with a campaign to "reclaim Islam" and educate the country about the true meaning of the word "Jihad."
Through CTA bus and train ads and a social media campaign on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, participants are being asked to express what their Jihad is with the hashtag #MyJihad.
By Friday morning, more than 3,000 users had "liked" the campaign's Facebook page. And on Twitter, thousands have posted what their "struggle" or Jihad is.
