The fake story behind Rowan Atkinson conversion to Islam

We are bringing you information about the prank that was made by the Israellycool website about Rowan Atkinson conversion to Islam. This is what they have to say about that: 

Atkinson’s agent denying he converted to Islam.

My Batsh*t Crazy Claim Of The Day: Rowan Atkinson Converted To Islam post has quickly become perhaps the most “popular” Israellycool post ever. Traffic has gone through the roof. Tens of Muslims have ‘liked’ our Facebook page. And despite the title and content of the post – in which I clearly point out why the claim is ridiculous – thousands of Muslims around the world have shared, retweeted and linked to the post, as evidence that Rowan Atkinson has converted to Islam! (here is one example)

I guess they will believe what they want to believe.

Meanwhile, no word from Atkinson himself because – as I have made clear – the claim is almost certainly false.

HAS Mr Bean become a Muslim?

This was the poser in Kosmo! and Berita Harian following reports in social media that actor Rowan Atkinson, who plays the title character of the popular comedy programme, had embraced Islam.

His purported conversion on Oct 1 first surfaced in the Arabic-language site sadapladi.com and was repeated by Isreali weblog israellycool.

It has since emerged in portals and websites all over the Arab world as well as in South-East Asia, including Indonesia and Malaysia.

Islampos.com said the 58-year-old actor only held up his right forefinger when asked about the matter, which Muslim-based portals interpreted as his acceptance of the syahadah, an Islamic creed which declares belief in the oneness of Allah and acceptance of Muhammad as his prophet.

Britain’s mainstream media has yet to report on the matter and neither has Mr Bean verbally mentioned his purported conversion.

Mr. Bean Converted to Islam!: Another Hoax Staining the Image of Islam

Casablanca- There is nothing in the world that stains the image of Islam more than a ridiculous hoax reported first as “news” and then spread through social networks about the conversion of an internationally recognized figure to Islam. When the sources of such deceptive news are verified and the news is found to be inaccurate, it is evident that Islam is the only target of the hoax as manifested by the subsequent backlash in harsh attacks from non-Muslims—particularly atheists.

Recently, it was reported in many Arabic news websites that Rowan Atkinson, the world-renowned comedian widely known for his role as Mr. Bean, had announced his conversion to Islam. This unverified report stirred a huge positive, yet premature, reaction among Muslims active on social networks.  An immediate, significant increase in traffic on social media was recorded in countries where Islam is the predominant religion.

The reaction would have been completely natural had the news been verified or proved accurate. However, the veracity of this report has not yet been established, and the  new outlets that have disseminated the information do not have any reputation for journalistic credibility.  Thus, the report is a hoax. The fact that it is a hoax has put Islam and Muslims under a derogatory spotlight  due to the wave of harsh criticisms and attacks that have been leveled subsequently.
