Daniel Pipes, a US historian, writer and political commentator, has faced mockery on Twitter after sharing a photograph of what appears to be a young Justin Trudeau praying at a mosque. He is known for his controversial views on Islam, however after arguing that the photograph suggests the Canadian prime minister was a Muslim, he faced the humorous wrath of the Internet.

Pipes made a similar accusation against US President Obama, reportedly arguing that Obama was perhaps once a Muslim and had left the faith, thus may be looked down upon in the Islamic world.

See his comment on Trudeau below, via Twitter.

 

In true Twitter fashion, users quickly took to mocking Pipes. Pictures were posted of Trudeau and others in various situations, alongside comments questioning whether they also had different secrets in their lives.

Here are some of the funniest.
