INDIANAPOLIS — A month after an anti-Muslim billboard disparaging the prophet Mohammed along an Indiana interstate and gained national attention, a Chicago-based Muslim group is firing back with a billboard of its own.

Dubbed the “Truthful Man” by the minds behind it, a direct response to the “Perfect Man” title given to the other billboard, the new billboard on Interstate 465 reads “The truth about Muhammad. Get a free book on his life. Call 800-662-ISLAM.” Anyone who calls the number can ask any question about Mohammed or Islam and request a free biography about Mohammed.

GainPeace, the Muslim group behind the effort, said the billboard is one part of a six-week campaign designed to educate people about the prophet Mohammed. The billboard will be up until July 30.

Other portions of the campaign include mailing out 15,000 post cards about Mohammed and creating a 30-second video to be shared on social media.
