Lindsay Lohan Studying Quran, Says Was 'Racially Profiled' For Headscarf

Lindsay Lohan (photosLindsay Lohan photos) claims she was racially profiled at London's Heathrow Airport because she was wearing a headscarf.

"When I was flying to New York recently, I was wearing a headscarf, and I got stopped at the airport and was racially profiled for the first time in my life," Lohan told Good Morning Britain.

"The agent opened my passport and saw Lindsay Lohan and started apologizing but said, 'Take off your headscarf.'"

"I mean, it's OK. But what scared me was that moment, how would another woman who doesn't feel comfortable taking off her headscarf feel?," she asked hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

"That was really interesting to me. I was kind of in shock. It was strange. I'm from New York, born and raised. I was a little intimidated."

Lohan explained she was wearing the headscarf out of "personal respect" after meeting with President Erdogan in Turkey.

She also admitted that she had indeed been reading the Quran.

"I think that me studying the Quran is something I found solace in. You can't just convert to a religion overnight. I just study it. Nothing is confirmed yet," she said. "Religion is a personal belief. My sister's a Buddhist. I don't want to speak on something I haven't finished yet."

"I find a solace in studying not just the Quran but meditation. The Islamic culture, I feel it's a family to me. They've been really good people to me. I want to learn the language so I can discuss situations with them. It calms me. It's something I'm interested in."
