"The billboards always generate a lot of interest. People are curious to know about the Prophet Muhammad. They have many questions, therefore, we experience a surge in calls to our hotline and website visits," said Salman Syed, Greater LA President. Billboards, mainly in English but some in Spanish, exhibit messages such as "Muhammad believed in peace, social justice, women's rights" and 'Muhammad always taught love, not hate; peace, not violence."
