Defend the Honor of Muhammad BillboardAs Muslims it is our duty to defend the honor of Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be Upon Him) when his honor is violated. It pains me to have to inform many of you that in Saint Louis, over 100 anti-Islam propaganda billboards with cartoon drawings of the Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be Upon Him) have gone up in our community. These billboards are financed by the well-known anti-Islam hate group called the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled as a hate group.
