‘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,’ he said.

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

However, the Taken star has recently spoken about his opinion towards religion.

‘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?’ he said.

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

The actor was criticised in 2010 after claiming The Chronicles Of Narnia lion, Aslan, who he provided the voice for in the film, was not based on Christ as CS Lewis had claimed but in fact all spiritual leaders including Muhammad.

  1. Why the Mullas are getting together now for a meeting against the will of the people? Why did they not come out against terrorism, years before?
    The root of terrorism lies in the wrong type of teaching in madrassas (seminaries).
    If government collects the data of all terrorist that are killed or captured, their place of birth, mother father record, where they lived and learned things, their associations and compiles this data, it would be found that they were all doing these bad things in the name of religion or some sect.
    The killing of Ahmadis or Shias is a sect killing or not? The killing of Hindus and Christians is a religious attack or not? The attack on Charlie ebdo in Paris was a bad activity in the name of religion. Religion only and that is Islam is being misused all over the world. The government must come hard on all the Mullas by careful tactics.
    If the government compiles the data of terrorists, and places it on the net, it will be found that all were friends of some fanatic religious associations/ political parties.
    If that data is spread all around then maulvis will have to back away from their demands of relief. They will feel guilty rather than making any demand. But the government is weak and slow and incompetent in handling these matters quickly and in the right direction.
    Why all the maulvis did not give sermons for peace on every Friday, openly and forcefully? Why their Muftis did not give Fatwa (religious edict) against the bad deeds of those who were killing in the name of Allah? These maulvis should be questioned about that. And politics should be avoided at this moment otherwise all will be lost. The maulvis are not the friends of any country or politicians. They are the friends of the terrorists.
    The maulvis are a political force and government should be aware of that and should take protective measure so that religious bigots do not gather more mass.

  2. I am sorry. I have posted my above post in a wrong thread. Pardon. It was supposed to be in the thread where some maulvis are getting together to thwart the plans of Pakistan government.
