Tennessee newspaper said on Sunday it was investigating what its editor called a “horrific” full-page advertisement from a religious group that predicts a terrorist attack in Nashville next month.

The paid advertisement that appeared in Sunday’s editions of the Tennessean from the group Future For America claims Donald Trump “is the final president of the USA” and features a photo of Trump and Pope Francis.

It begins by claiming that a nuclear device will be detonated in Nashville and that the attack will be carried out by unspecific interests of “Islam”.

The group also ran a full-page ad in Wednesday’s editions of the newspaper stating its intention to warn Nashville residents about next month’s event “so that they may be able to make a decision intelligently”.

In a story on its website Sunday afternoon, the Tennessean said the ad violated the newspaper’s long-established standards banning hate speech.

  1. Another disgusting example (if the ad’s origins are from so-called Muslims), of these people spoiling the name of the very religion they profess to follow.

    I personally believe that these people bigger enemies of Islam that the ones to are openly attacking Islam.

    I wish I could publicly disown them!!! VERY HORRIBLE CREATURES if ever there were any…

    • my understanding is that ‘anti-Islamic’ elements organized this ad to try and give a bad name to Islam

      • Yes, you could be right….

        But, then our own Muslims do, do such things, too, very unfortunately…

  2. It is quite interesting how these people hide behind the title of ‘anonymous’ and publish such false claims. The writers of such information are not the only ones to blame. The news papers and magazines that blindly publish such false and hateful information should also be held accountable.

  3. Ahmadi Muslims of Pakistan are yet again target of hatred by the authorities. Placing a ban on TV channel out of hatred is another extreme way of taking away the rights and freedom of speech.
    It is the only channel worldwide, that is spreading the true message of Islam.
    How a government can control and dictate its people’s beliefs and thoughts.
