Politician Who Was Writing Anti-Islam Book Converted To Islam.
Former far-right party member Joram Van Klaveren is a Dutch politician in the Netherlands, converted to Islam.
Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders said to Van Klaveren that he is a vegetarian who is working in a slaughterhouse when he got to know that Van converted to Islam.
Van Klaveren said that he had a wrong view about Islam because in 2004 an artist named Theo Van Gogh was killed by people who claimed themselves as Islamists.
He said that all the other attacks made him develop a negative perception of Islam. He said that he always thought Muslims want to kill Christians. Van was a spokesperson of the Party on Islam.
Van left the party when Wilders asked his supporters whether they want more or fewer Moroccans and the crowd said fewer.
Van thought that Wilders was crossing his line as it looked like the idea of getting rid of a particular ethnic group.
Van wrote an anti-Islam book. When he started to write the book he consulted Abdul Hakim Murad who converted to Islam but was known by the name Timothy winter.
Timothy said that the Islam which Van has been knowing is Wahhabism. Van questioned him about real Islam. Timothy gave him the name of some books which Van can refer to. He even sent few books to him which made him understand Islam.
Van Klaveren started to write the book again. He did that the misconception that women are treated badly and the blame that Muslims are terrorists had changed.
Van Klaveren said that he started to read about the life of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and the way he treated non-Muslims, the way he was gentle and understanding has changed Van’s perspective about Islam.
Van Klaveren started to talk with Imams and they told him that he slowly turned into a Muslim. Van Klaveren then took Shahadah i.e., There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah. He then learned a few prayers and said that his next goal is to pray five times a day.
Van said that his family was shocked to hear this news but his brother and sister in law was happy. Van said that his politician friends were not happy after they got to know that Van converted to Islam. Wilders felt that Van is a Vegetarian who is working in a slaughterhouse. Van was motivated by the life of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H).
