Sunita Williams converts to the religion of Islam. Just to set the record straight, Sunita William is a naval officer of United States and a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) astronaut as well. She was able to join the Expedition 14 and 15 for her assignment in the International Space Station and thus she maintains the honor of being the one female space traveler with the longest spaceflight of about 195 days as well as some claims, holds the record of being the first Indian woman to go to space. However the former assertion is still in argument since the first woman of Indian ethnicity to fly in space was said to be in person of Kalpana Chawla.
Her father is Hindu while her mother is Christian but Sunita Williams has high regards for both the said faiths. As a matter of fact, she is an avid believer of Ganesh, the Hindu God of wisdom and prophecy who removes obstacles. However, according to claims by various forums and websites, Sunita Williams had converted to Islam from previously believing in Hinduism after her return from the moon. The rumor has been making its round in the net for quite a while with accompanying top-down picture of a miracle image showing the entire Earth looking dark except for Masjid al Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina, the most holiest sites of Islam that looked like bright lights surrounded by a total darkness. The said view allegedly convinced Sunita Williams to convert to Islamism. Devout Muslims who read the news behind Sunita Wiliiam’s conversion was proud and praised Allah for the miracle that supposedly occurred.
