Super Famous People Who Also Happen to be Muslim

Following the recent Paris Attacks, the world has once again heightened its fears towards Islamic religions in a post-attack backlash. Trump has even suggested that all Muslim people living in America be registered in a government database (or not allowed in the country at all), even though the US population can’t seem to get a control on its internal terrorism caused by white extremists raised within our own country.
