Zayn Malik, who began his career in the boy band One Direction known by young people, said in an interview for Vogue that he no longer wanted to identify with the beliefs in which he was raised, namely with Islam. Some music fans were disappointed with this statement and even called for a boycott.
Malik stressed that he could no longer identify with Islam because he did not agree with the principles imposed by this religion.
I do not believe that you need to eat certain meat that has been prayed for in a certain way. I do not believe that someone must read prayers in certain languages 5 times a day. I'm just me. I don't want to be defined by my religion or my origin
– Said a former member of One Direction.
He acknowledged, however, that he still believed in the existence of God.
I believe that if you are a good person, good things will happen to you
– he added.
His recognition caused a stir among fans. Many of them began to insult and call for a boycott. On social media, there are many comments that show that Malik betrayed his faith, but there are also people who praise him for making choices.

The singer reported some time ago on Twitter that he permanently left the Catholic Church. He later stated that … he converted to Islam and was no longer called "Sinead O & # 39; Connor", but Shuhada & # 39; Davitt:
I am proud to tell you that I have become a Muslim. This is the natural consequence of every wise theological journey. All scriptures refer to Islam, which makes everything else unnecessary. I will get a new name soon. That will be Shuhada & # 39;
