Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer map Favela has been taken offline following complaints from Muslim players, who discovered offensive imagery contained within one of the map's rooms almost three years after the game's release.
According to Kotaku, two paintings found in one of the map's bathrooms contained a quote attributed to the Prophet Muhammad, which reads: "Allah is beautiful and He loves beauty."

and enlighten a bit some of neowin-ians what is right or wrong in this case....

so ... let me get this straight ... I paid for a game to play and you find offensive an image and go bananas on my entire experience ... keep religion in your pants and let me enjoy my freedom of expression ...

Why would they put something like that there in the first place? It's unfortunate that they had to remove the map but it's only temporary. They're going to remove the textures in MW2 and MW3 with separate title updates.

It shouldn't have been there in the first place.

Funny that nobody asked for the removal of the Christ the Redeemer statue, thied to javelin it a couple of times when playing the level...rofl
Don´t get me wrong, I´m Brazilian, family is mostly Catholic but the level of non-sense the so called "religious people" are bringing up recently is upsetting me greatly; some people even question if I´m an atheist to what I say no "but I decided to talk to God directly as his representatives down here are a lot to be desired"...
Back on the game, I guess this will not affect non-official servers around the planet, will it...
