LIAM NEESON CONVERTS TO ISLAM?


Irish actor, Liam Neeson  has reportedly given up on his Catholic faith and is converting to Islam.

The Hollywood star, 59, was recently filming in Turkish city Istanbul and became fascinated with the Muslim faith during his stay.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “The Call to Prayer happens five times a day and for the first week it drives you crazy, and then it just gets into your spirit and it’s the most beautiful, beautiful thing.

“There are 4,000 mosques in the city. Some are just stunning and it really makes me think about becoming a Muslim.”

Soon after speaking with The Sun,  Liam met with prominent Muslim clerics and mullahs from Turkey and reportedly has begun the conversion.

The actor was raised in Northern Ireland as a Catholic altar boy and was named after his local priest.

On his Catholic beliefs, he said: “I was reared a Catholic but I think every day we ask ourselves, not consciously, what are we doing on this planet? What’s it all about?

“I’m constantly reading books on God or the absence of God and atheism.”

Neeson stars in the action/thriller, The Grey, which follows a number of men stranded in Alaska after a plane crash, and forced to survive using little more than their wits as a pack of wolves comes after them.  It opens this weekend, January 27th.

Neeson has reportedly been seen reading a Koran and was in the middle of a meeting in Hollywood he left the room to bow to Mecca.

Could it be true?
