Controversial anti-Muslim ads to be reinstalled on Miami-Dade buses
Ten controversial advertisements by an anti-Muslim group that were removed from Miami-Dade Transit buses after the department received complaints will go back up.
The ads, which a transit official said were pulled last week because they "may be offensive," have the message "Fatwa on your head? Is your community or family threatening you? Leaving Islam? Got questions? Get answers!" and direct Muslims to a website urging them to leave the "falsity of Islam."
Transit spokesman Clinton Forbes said that, after reviewing the ads with the Miami-Dade County Attorney's office, the county decided that, "although they may be considered offensive by some, they do not fall under the general guidelines that would warrant their removal." He added the county "is not endorsing the message being presented."
