Saint Paul, Minnesota – On Monday, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety (MDPS) confirmed that the personalized license plates FMUSLMS issued to a man in Big Lake will be revoked and confiscated for being offensive to the Muslim community. The plates were issued by the Minnesota Department of Motor Vehicle and its policy to issue personalized plates will be reviewed and change on how plates are issued. MDPS has apologized to the Muslim community for issuing the plates.
A photo of the rear FMUSLMS plate was taken by Haji Yusuf, a high school student in St. Cloud and posted it on his Facebook account on Saturday, which went viral.
