'Leaving Islam' Bus Ads Run in NYC
by Michelle A. Vu
Move aside pro-atheist and Christian bus ads. A new ad targeting former Muslims has joined the religious bus ad campaigns in New York City.
Some 30 city buses began in mid-May to display an ad that reads: "Leaving Islam? Fatwa on your head? Is your family threatening you?" The ad directs people to the website www.refugefromislam.com.
Opponents of the ad say it promotes an anti-Muslim message and seeks to draw people away from the faith.
But supporters of the campaign say it is meeting a real need to provide resources for Muslims who want to leave the faith.
