Zayn Malik Says He “Wouldn’t Call Himself A Muslim” And His Muslim Fans Are Freaking Out


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.

SOME People are UPSET

They’re even digging up old tweets of his to try and make his interview disappear forever

Others are saying it isn’t really that much of a shock given his lifestyle

He did say though that religion is a personal thing. Maybe the media asks too many personal questions which puts pressure on celebrities particularly those with a massive following.

Only time will tell where Zayn decides where he stands with his personal faith and if he will address his Muslim fanbase about his recent comments.


These celebrities share one faith. What does it mean to them?
