Morgan Freeman was seen earlier today at Al-Khoei Foundation, London, Queens Park attending a majlis. The news broke out on Twitter and got viral as people were shocked to see him at a mosque. Some thought he was there to pay respect to shuhada-e-Karbala, some thought he had converted to Shia Islam. But basically he was there for a shoot for his documentary for National Geographic called “The Story of God”.
But when you spot Morgan Freeman at a mosque, it’s not something that happens everyday and it is a big deal.
Here is how Twitter reacted to it.
1. Absolute shock.
Yes exactly, what is Morgan Freeman doing at a mosque that too on 9th Muharram?
