U.S film maker Sean Stone from a Jewish father and christian mother reverted to Islam


U.S. filmmaker who has a Jewish father and Christian mother today decided to convert to Islam.

But Sean Stone, 27, son of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, insisted the switch did not signal him abandoning the faiths of his parents.

He became Muslim on Tuesday 14 February 2012.

‘The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with,’ Mr Stone told news agency Agence France-Presse.

‘It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets,’.

The Princeton University graduate appeared in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps in 2010, Nixon in 1995 and JFK in 1991 – all worked on by his dad.
