(Newser) – Two Muslim teenagers have been busted for spraying black burkas on images of hot women in ads. They told a judge in their recent London court appearance that it's a "sin" for women to dress provocatively, and that they were "just trying to do good," reports the Daily Mail. They painted over a gigantic-bosomed "angel" on a Lynx deodorant ad, and defaced a poster for Nicolas Cage's new film Drive Angry, among others. They gave "full and frank" confessions when they were nabbed after members of the public phoned police. They admitted to six counts of criminal damage, and were fined $450 each and released on a 12-month conditional discharge. The vandalism occurred just days after British Islamic extremists launched a poster campaign declaring certain areas "enforcement zones" for Sharia.
