Tony Blair's sister-in-law converts to Islam

LONDON: The sister-in-law of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has converted to Islam following a visit to Iran, claiming she is a “proud member” of the Muslim community.

Lauren Booth has given up alcohol and pork, prays five times a day and has not ruled out wearing a burqa in the future, she told The Mail on Sunday newspaper.

The 43-year-old journalist and reality television contestant underwent the religious conversion on her return to Britain following a visit to the holy Iranian city of Qom six weeks ago. She said that when she was in Iran, “I sat down and felt this shot of spiritual morphine, just absolute bliss and joy.”

Speaking to the newspaper after a multi-faith Global Peace and Unity Event in London on Saturday, Booth said: “What I wanted to share with you today is that I am Lauren Booth and I am a Muslim. “I always felt that the Ummah (Muslim community) is a very loving, peaceful place and I am proud to be a member of it.”

Booth, who works for the English language Iranian news channel Press TV, has frequently criticised her brother-in-law, accusing the former leader of being biased towards Israel and the United States in his role as Middle East peace envoy. She wrote a scathing open letter in last month’s far-left newspaper Morning Star.

“Personally I’ve never understood this fear of ‘political Islam’,” she wrote. “It seems to me that religious people should always be educated on world events rather than kept in ignorance. Like, say, Midwest Christian Zionists in the US.”

After attending a rally in Iran to mourn Palestinian deaths in cities including Rafah and Nablus, Booth wrote: “Do you recognise these place names, Tony? “As Middle East envoy, you really should. Israel has massacred children in all of these cities. Didn’t you know?” She was refused entry to Israel and Egypt after travelling from Cyprus to Gaza on an activist ship which was protesting the blockade of Palestinian territory.

Religious enlightenment is not unknown in the family with brother-in-law Tony converting to Catholicism in December 2007. Booth is the half-sister of Blair’s wife Cherie, who is a human rights lawyer.

    One can find this news story on every channel/newspaper/online news portal. The only difference here is the editor decided to omit the actual place in Iran where she visited and got inspired. The place was Roza (mazaar) of Hazrat Masooma Bibi of Qom – The respected sister of Hazrat Imam Reza (AS) of Mashad. Recommend

    There is indeed a lot of dis-satisfaction amongst the western population especially as their economic conditions get worse and they are seeking new spiritualism and Islam offers a truly monotheistic path and simple down to earth religion with a message of PEACE and BROTHERHOOD/SISTERHOOD. Her journey to the Shrine of Hazrat Masoumeh, sister of Imam Reza must have been a very moving experience. Iranian clergy itself is very sophisticated and educated in explaining the enlightened version of real Islam. Iran’s progress and strong Islamic roots blended in with a 6000 year old culture are also very appealing to westerners. Anyway, good for her and welcome to Islam.Recommend

    I just would like to add my opinion for GIRI’s comment.

    As being a Muslim its really great news taht Booth converted Islam, no matter either she is sunni or shia, because shia Suni are just sect and part of the Islam they all are Muslims. And whereever she will stay, i must say she will be safe and nobody stop her to perform her prayers either in shia way or sunni. The matter is she is Muslim now and thats the spirit that she got Allah’s Hidayat tahts it.

    In last, i request you all who gave their precious comments here, please welcome her in our Great Religion and dont misguide her.

Sounds like the “SISTER” is being welcomed as she might bring salvation to all our problems !

    I will throw a controversial question out there to all the welcome-rs of the ‘sister’

    What would be your reaction if one of say our female muslim member of parliament converts to Christianity..? Would the same posters welcoming her to the greatest religion still be mature enough to choose her religion or would they be baying for blood and wanting her to be killed and hung upside down for being an apostate..?

    Come to think of it, how many of those “noble” posters welcoming “sister” in our fold really care if say, one of the christians masi/ bhangee (maid/ janitor) converted to Islam. I bet my bottom dollar, that she wouldnt be remotely welcomed with that fanfare or might even be looked down at for attempting to convert to such a pure religion and a “bhangee”.

    Where are all these comrades and there welcoming enthusiasm when “sisters” of this nation get burnt, raped, buried alived, sexually harassed and discriminated against ?

    Are we reserving the welcomes only because it soothes our very very hurt and broken egos as we are labelled as one of the worst countries for law and order, economic progress, racial harmony, social progress and carry the sullen reputation of being a terror exporter globally..? All these welcomes are nothing but empty rhetoric in my opinion as we believe that somehow Cherrie Blair’s sister’s conversion to Islam proves all the western civilization wrong and gives us some ego-boost.

    She has chosen Shia Islam by the looks of it. I will wait until the ‘brothers’ from TTP, Hizb Tehreer, Al Qaeda, Sipah Jhegvi and their ilk issue fatwas against her for choosing the “wrong” version of Islam…. In this land, we are more concerned about Sunnis, Shias, Barelvis, Deobandis, Wahabis, Ahle Sunna, Mohajirs, Punjabi, Pathan, Baloch, Memon, Gujjar, Jaat, Rajput, Jatoi and Magsi…. So much for all the accolades about welcoming her to the fold..

    Long rant but I just cant fathom the duplicity of this super-active religious right that says all the right things or things that make them appear as the purest of the pure but is busy being corrupt to the core and the evidence of that duplicity and personal corruption is well found in all parts of this nation.

    I ask this question again.. What would be the reaction of this welcoming brigade, if one of our female Parliamentarians or a well known actor converted from Islam to Christianity..? We will be chasing her to the gallows and disown her and will announce to the world that she did that because she is deranged, deviant and is under western influence, however when a non muslim converts to Islam, we regard that as the power and appeal of the religion Islam…

    Its sickening just the way we Pakistanis go about conducting ourselves in general and our religious affairs in particular, A land of hypocrites.

    Hello all these welcomers,
    Can you say the same with open heart to million of AHMADI living in Pakistan. You people are so hypocrite. Person can not be trusted who convert. If she was not good christian & can convert to Islam then how you can trust her she will not convert again.

    Booth, who works for the English language Iranian news channel Press TV,
    The 43-year-old journalist and reality television contestant underwent the religious conversion on her return to Britain following a visit to the holy Iranian city of Qom six weeks ago.

    She was in Iran. It might her ploy to enter into Iran’s elite.

    How she become your sister bcz she is sister in law of EX PM of UK who does not live at 10 downing st. anymore.
    Does any one of you take care of any poor girl in your neighborhood and call her sister.
    there is so many women take abouses everyday & no one shed a tear.

    Now let me tell you secrret. One of my nephew married with (born muslim) girl. She is pretty and good by heart. They Love each other. We bless them. But point is we never ask her to convert. She can do her prayer whatever way she want. she go to Sikh temple. Celebrate Eid & Diwali with same joy. It will be too bad if she stop celebrating Eid (as she had enjoyed it since she was born). As family member we don’t have any right to snatch a happy moment from our kid.

    One thing everyone will agree to is that Sunnism and Shiaism and all their off shoots came into being after the prefection of the religion. So the religion was completed during the life time of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and anything that follows is just innovation whether anyone likes it or not, admits it or not. Just because somebody says that the Sun rises from West will not make the Sun rise from West. We all know it rises from the East. Recommend

    She become Muslim is enough. All those who are creating sectarian differences among Muslim are enemies of Islam themselves. I pray that we all find the truth and continue it.Recommend
