Zayn Malik, the British singer, once-One Direction member and boyfriend to Gigi Hadid, was the celebrity many Muslims, especially Pakistani ones, liked to claim as their own because dude had a father who was a Pakistani Muslim and his family appears to be Muslim. Well, it all just blew up in all those fans’ faces after his recent interview.
Zayn Malik just gave an interview to British Vogue where he shared some pretty explosive things
He shared that he’s not friends with any of his ex-One Direction band members
And the biggest revelation, one that’s causing Muslim fans lots of agony, is that he said he’s not a Muslim anymore
In the interview for the December issue of the fashion magazine, Zayn Malik was asked if he would call himself a Muslim and he replied, “No I wouldn’t”. He also said he thinks religious beliefs are a very personal matter between the person and whatever they choose to belief and that he doesn’t like talking about them because that can lead to a lot of trouble.
Well, you’re right about that, Zayn. It has led to a lot of trouble for your Muslim fans.
zayn malik: leaving islam.
fully understand why so many things are haraam in islam, the music industry and alcohol being an example. they just distance you from your religion till you’ve lost all faith.
zayn’s a prime example of letting fame get to his head. cancelled. 🤮 pic.twitter.com/qhghOfw2XK
