    first of all gentleman everyone agrees that there is creater of heavens and earth and now to your question that if it is personal decision to select what we want then the answer is no ............................. because do you think that the GOD is a joke NAuz billaha when you need him accept and when you not neglect it.............. gentleman if you ever have read about islam then you might knew that it means to submit your will to GOD so it is not a joke and not a small thing it is relationship with your creater.... we are created and he is creater....... so dont talk in a manner that you will be ignored by him....... and before any comment on islam please read about it...... i can because i have bible which i have read....... so can comment so dont become internet warrior

    Their country, their laws of freedom. It is within the US territory. Saudi for example is in the list of most "unforgiving countries by rights" in US list. But Saudi doesn't give a damn. Because they are free to apply what laws they have in their country. Same goes for all countries.

    I think that if the adherents of a religion is firm in their resolve to be faithful to the Faith, then these type of ads cannot shake anyone!

    This lady is the Secretary of state for Islamophobia in US apart from Glen Beck and Rush. Her intention is to hurt the Muslims. Till this rescission ends, these kind of war morons, will get attention but once the economy picks up these stupids will be lost in the New york traffic. Don't need to give much attention to these kinds of hate slogans, as many New yorkers doesn't have time to read them. She should be air dropped in Afghanistan war zone. No she should be induced in coma and transported to the war zone and when she wakes up, it will be nice surprise :)

    It would have been interesting if the ad had said "Leaving Judaism". One can only imagine the outrage that it would have caused in the American mainstream media.

    Many non Muslims posting in this thread have said they would not have given those ads a second glance. True because these ads were clearly targeting Muslims.

    Well if we don't react and show displeasure at activities likes these. Ignore them and not lodge a strong protest we might end up soft targets like the Christians.

    Whenever anyone wants to mock religion or God nowadays, Christian believes are the target of choice. One can mock the Christians and get away with it... because they have been softened up and learned to live with attacks on their faith.

    The problem is it gives everyone in new york the idea that Muslims are "FORCED" into their religion and further the notion of Islam being barbaric to other people.

    No need for defensiveness - freedom of confession should be cherished and Islam is always a Dawa, an invitation to Mercy - you are free to accept or reject the invitation, just know that the invitation is never rescinded, you are always welcome, or welcome back, whichever the case.

    Please don't generalize.The proportion of these people here, will be same or less (ratio) than the secular ones in Pakistan. If you read the thread from the start, you will know that a bus with Adv to "know more about Islam" was also running for some time.
