Reader comment on item: Barack Obama and Islam: An Ongoing Saga
in response to reader comment: If he was born Muslim, but is now Christian

Submitted by gopelalwani (United States), Jan 23, 2009 at 17:16

One doesn't need studies to establish the fact about Barrak Obama's religion.
He is born Muslim and will ever remain Muslim. His claim to be christian is hardly acceptable.
His mother was married to a Indonesian Muslim in "Nikah Ceremony" was herself a convert Muslim.
He did get education in Madarsa in Indonesia and had been going for Namaz regularly.
He had been circumcised as per Islamic rituals.
Most of his friends during his school times were Muslims.
Definitely under influence of his grand-mother he was forced to show more interest in Christianity, but deep from his heart he remains a Muslim.
He kept quite about his middle name all the during election campaign but once he said his middle name is Steve.
Was it a joke or cheating?
Being sure to win the election, he used middle name proudly "Hussein".
Over two hundred million dollars campaign funds came from Muslims for election.
New chapter in US History has now begun.
