London, Apr 26 : It seems that Babyshmables frontman Pete Doherty is turning to Islam in jail, for the singer is going through pages of Koran in an effort to get through his days behind the bars.

The Babyshambles frontman has taken to the Islam holy book after he was held under captivation at London's Wormwood Scrubs.

From what reports suggest, Pete asked for a translation when he was imprisoned in an isolated cell at the tough prison last week, and now the rocker is glued to the tome.

"He's been reading the Koran since he went into segregation. He's got a lot of Muslim friends and they've been on at him for ages to study it. Now he's on his own he's got time on his hands to study it," The Sun quoted a pal, as saying.

The pal added: "I'm surprised how much it has calmed him down as he was very on edge inside. He definitely seems more chilled. He's lapping it up and really interested in it. I think it's helping him in there."
