Mayor Rob Ford: Remove Jihadi Battle Cry Mural from Toronto

      Toronto, Canada

The City of Toronto has commissioned a StreetART program to bring art to cover up graffiti from buildings on the city's major streets.

Taking advantage of this program, a Mosque has managed to obtain city funding to paint a jihadi battle cry as a mural on its wall. This jihadi battle cry has been taken from the Quran and used by Islamic Terrorists like the Taliban and Al-Qaeda as well as the Pakistan Military in its war propaganda against India.

The inscription on the mural tells Muslims to have faith in Allah who will give them 'imminent victory' in their endevour against the enemy (non-Muslims).

As Muslims we would not like to see our holy book, The Quran to be used to sow division amongst the citizens of this great city of Toronto.

We urge Mayor Rob Ford and City Councillor Paula Fletcher to immediately act and cover up this provocative mural in 'Little India' that is home to many Hindu and Sikh Canadians who are being primarily targetted by this signage.

      This 'battle cry" is not oly racist, it incites hate and anger / action from those who follow this religious faction. If "kill the infidels" is ok, then across the street should a mural be placed "Allah offends". Like that will happen.
