NYC Bus Ads Asking 'Leaving Islam?' Cause a Stir
Ads carrying those phrases are appearing on at least 30 New York City buses, paid for by a conservative activist and the organizations she leads.
The activist, Pamela Geller, says the ads are aimed at Muslims who are already contemplating leaving the faith.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says the ads don't violate any of its guidelines. They went up May 14 and are scheduled to come down in a couple of weeks.
Faiza Ali of the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations says they are a smokescreen for an anti-Muslim agenda.
