Controversial Ad Featuring Prophet Muhammad Submitted to Metro
by Jackie Bensen and Danielle Abreu
The group behind a provocative contest for cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that led to a deadly shooting in Texas earlier this month has submitted the winning image to run as an advertisement on Washington, D.C., public transportation.
The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), a conservative group behind some controversial ad campaigns, wants to plaster the image of the Prophet Muhammad on the side of Metrobuses and in train stations.
Pamela Geller, founder of the American Freedom Defense Initiative, submitted the the winning cartoon from the "Draw Muhammad" event to the Washington, D.C., Transit Authority.
