Pete Doherty reading the Koran in jailApril 26th, 2008 - 5:07 pm ICT by admin
London , Apr 26 (ANI): It seems that Babyshmables frontman Pete Doherty is turning to Islam in jail, for the singer is going through pages of Koran in an effort to get through his days behind the bars.
One might not have imagined Doherty to take the non-alcohol and no-drugs way of Islam, but it seems the singer is headed just there, for he has started reading Koran behind the bars.
The Babyshambles frontman has taken to the Islam holy book after he was held under captivation at London s Wormwood Scrubs.
From what reports suggest, Pete asked for a translation when he was imprisoned in an isolated cell at the tough prison last week, and now the rocker is glued to the tome.
Hes been reading the Koran since he went into segregation. Hes got a lot of Muslim friends and theyve been on at him for ages to study it. Now hes on his own hes got time on his hands to study it, The Sun quoted a pal, as saying.
The pal added: Im surprised how much it has calmed him down as he was very on edge inside. He definitely seems more chilled. Hes lapping it up and really interested in it. I think its helping him in there. (ANI)
