You are dragging up an article from May 2005, over 3 years ago.

No hidden agenda with you is there.

Lee's not a Muslim, says dad

May 3 2005

 

THE family of disgraced former soccer star Lee Hughes today rubbished claims that he had converted to Islam while behind bars.

 

It was reported that former West Bromwich Albion star Hughes, serving six years for causing death by dangerous driving after drinking at least five double whiskies, had become a Muslim in prison.But his dad Bill, of The Oval, Smethwick, today laughed off the claims.

 

 

.

 

He said: "This story is not true." The report said Hughes had taken part in a ceremony to convert to Islam after being befriended by Muslim prisoners and was praying barefoot five times a day.

 

He was also said to have renounced drugs and alcohol, which he blamed for his devastating fall from grace, and to have given up reading lads mags such as Maxim and FHM in favour of holy book the Koran.

 

.

 

Records at Featherstone Prison, near Wolverhampton, where he is serving his sentence, show his religion as MOS, prison code for Muslim, said the report.

 

Ex-fellow prisoner Rafaqat Hussain, aged 29, from Birmingham, claimed he introduced Hughes to the Muslim faith.

 

Mr Hussain said: "Drink was his downfall.

 

"He was troubled by what he had done but now seems a lot calmer.

 

"Lee said his wife's dad was a Muslim and started to ask questions. Some people didn't think he would stick at it, but he proved them wrong."
