Batsh*t Crazy Claim Of The Day: Rowan Atkinson Converted To Islam (Updated).
Welcome Muslim readers! While this post has attracted much traffic from Muslim countries, with many of you linking to this post and using it as proof Rowan Atkinson converted to Islam, please note the title, as well as the content of this post. We do not believe for a second there is any veracity to the report from the anti-Israel website.
According to this anti-Israel site, Islam can count among its newest converts Rowan Atkinson, aka Mr Bean.
Arab and international The king of silent comedy” Mr Bean” announced his conversion to Islam News networks picked up on the social networking site, and other websites morning news announcement Global Islam comedian Rowan Atkinson’s famous “Mr Bean”.
And surprised the comedian famous “Mr Bean” middle and artistic world by announcing entry in the Islamic religion.
And the relocation of “echo my” word Mr Bean shows from which the film was offensive to the Prophet – peace be upon him – was a major reason for the discovery of a teacher this true religion, and did not want Mr Bean authorizing the channels of information so, as it could only raise his finger testimony.
According to some sources, interested according to the site, Sheikh Rashid Ghannouchi Contact the name and the name of the Nahda Movement congratulatory telegram for this artist Qadeer congratulating, calling him stable on the road to the right, waiting to send an official mission to congratulate him.
The site indicates that Sheikh Rashid relationship with “Mr Bean” is related to ancient days was in London. Sheikh has long been a good mentor.
The advantage of this artist’s legendary talent does not possess any artist alive, comedy silent is the home first which is not rivaled by any artist where ever, its launch was in the theater and excelled in hundreds of figures varied but the public is still asking him to return to his unique (Mr Bean).
What makes this story particularly funny (and ridiculous) is the fact Rowan Atkinson has been at the forefront of the fight against blasphemy laws.
He also apparently once said this:
"The starting point for my objections to this Bill is to argue with its supposedly inarguable premise: the ooh Yes Religious Hatred, that sounds like a bad thing, let’s have a law against that. As hatred is defined as intense dislike, what is wrong with inciting intense dislike of a religion, if the activities or teachings of that religion are so outrageous, irrational or abusive of human rights that they deserve to be intensely disliked?
