Arnoud van Doorn, a former member of the Dutch right-wing Freedom Party and producer of anti-Islam and blasphemous movie â€˜Fitnaâ€™, has performed Haj this year after converting to Islam. He also plans to produce a pro-Islam film on the teachings of holy Prophet Muhammad (s), the Saudi Arabia daily Okaz reported.
After arriving in the holy city of Makkah, he said now he was living as one of the most pleasant persons, and he will produce another film about the morals of the Holy Prophet (s). Van Doorn said he found in Islam what he was yearning for and what he had missed in his former life (before converting to Islam).
He said he came to Saudi Arabia to perform Haj, and to seek forgiveness of the Almighty Allah for his previous sins.
â€œIt was not the first time I had visited the holy land, as I had been here in February this year to perform Umrahâ€, he said, adding that, he had found the comfort and peace of mind near the tomb of the Holy Prophet (s) in holy city of Madinah.
