The 30-year-old Mean Girls actress, Lindsay Lohan appeared on Turkish TV show, Haber Turk, where she talked about the backlash she received in America for holding and reading the Quran.
Lohan said: “My very close friends, who have been there for me a lot, in London are Saudi and they gave me the Quran and I brought it to New York because I was learning.”
“It opened doors for me to experience spiritually, to find another true meaning. This is who I am.”
Lohan revealed the reaction from her fellow Americans, when they saw her holding the Quran; was negative and somewhat restricted.
“They crucified me for it in America,” she said. “They made me seem like Satan. I was a bad person for holding that Quran.
“I was so happy to leave America and go back to London after that, because I felt so unsafe in my own country. If this Islam is something that I want to learn, this is my own will.”
Deciding to protect herself and her obsession and beliefs, she spoke up for the Muslim population in America, saying: “I can’t imagine how many people go through this all the time, and that made me feel like an outsider.”
However, it hasn’t all been negative. News of Lindsay’s desire to convert to Islam was also taken positively by many people.
