Anger after Lowe's pulls ads from Muslim show

US politician warns of nationwide boycott if home improvement chain's "religious bigotry" is not reversed.

    Lowes, a US chain of home improvement stores, is facing a barrage of complaints after it withdrew advertising from a reality TV show that looks at the lives of American Muslim families.

    The chain ended its association with "All-American Muslim" after the Florida Family Association, a conservative group, charged that it was "propaganda that hides the danger Islam represents to American liberties".  

    Now a US senator says the company's "naked religious bigotry" must be corrected or a nation-wide boycott may be in store.

    Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher reports from Great Falls, Virginia.
