Anthony Joshua has been trolled and abused after he shared a picture of him praying in a mosque.The pictures led to be wondering if he had embraced Islam and was now a muslim.The picture was taken on holiday in Dubai. 
The IBF heavyweight champion visited the religious building while sightseeing in Dubai.He has previously said he does not follow any particular religion but has an interest in faith.
The British 27-year-old born to Nigerian parents, who is training in the city for his superfight against
Wladimir Klitschko in April at Wembley, shared the photo of himself at the mosque on both his Twitter and Instagram account.
“Besides luck, hard work & talent… Prayer is a solid foundation. It was nice to join my brother as he led through afternoon prayer,” he wrote.
The photo immediately prompted a torrent of vitriolic abuse, with some people claiming they would now be supporting Klitschko and unfollowing him on social media.

Nevertheless, others rushed to defend the boxing champion, telling him to ignore the hate he has recieved. Some fans wrote “Mashallah”, an Arabic phrase expressing appreciation.
“You people who are sending abusive messages to him are a disgrace to society of 2017,” said one.
“Anthony Joshua is one of the finest role models and dedicated boxers in the sport of boxing. Religion doesn't breed hate ignorance does,” added another.
As of December 2016, the boxer, who won gold at the 2012 Olympics as an amateur, was ranked as the world’s second best heavyweight by BoxRec and the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board.
But amid all the abuse and controversy,he has not made any form of statement and his representatives have confirmed he will not be making any.It really baffles me why religion that is fundamentally meant to promote peace and love ,has been one of the most divisive things known to mankind.
