An international TV ad for the Church of Scientology has been banned in the UK by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) for "misleading" claims that the organization provided aid to 24 million people around the world.

After receiving a complaint from a viewer who called into the question the validity of claims made in the commercial, the ASA – the ad industry's self-regulatory body – ruled in favor of banning the commercial.

The ASA ruled the ad's claim that the controversial church gave "aid to 24 million in need" was unsubstantiated.
