Complaints made about a campaign for the religious group My Peace that ran with the words ‘Jesus – A Prophet of Islam’ have been dismissed by the Advertising Standards Bureau.
Complaints made against the ad included: “This billboard has specifically been designed in order to spark outrage and to offend Christians. This advertisement needs to be banned and removed immediately.”
The ads ran on billboards, public buses, bus shelters and websites.
The ASB noted that any religion has the right to advertise its beliefs provided that these ads do not discriminate against or vilify people in the community on account of their religion.
