The Exotic Muslim Dude Who Rocks Is One Direction Zayn Malik

Zayn Malik is often referred to as the coolest member of One Direction. The incredibly handsome rebellious kid whose tattoos and nonchalant behavior, there is an observant Muslim boy. the young singer was still deeply hurt by the remarks — many of which attacked the singer for his religion.

This all started when Zayn shared a photo that showed his girlfriend and his family celebrating Eid, a Muslim holiday. On October 3, Celebuzz reported that Malik got a bunch of hateful messages on Twitter, making fun of his religion.

A practicing Muslim, Zayn, admitted he gets online abuse duty to his religious beliefs. “You can say whatever you want about me, I’m not really bothered. But when it starts to upset people I care about or I hear about it from my mum, then that’s a problem."

“My little cousin put up a family picture at Eid because she got a photo with Perrie and she was so happy about it. But then everybody just gave it to me double barrel,” he explained. I think the good comes with the bad. He also have fans all over the world, love it or hate it many of them are Muslims tween girls. 

"I believe that your religion should be between you and whoever your belief is in," said Malik in a recent interview. "I don’t think you should stick it in people’s faces. I think you should just keep it to yourself, and that’s how I’ve always been with it. I just had seen a few things that had annoyed me. I thought we had moved away from that and we’re living in the 21st century and people could accept people from different religions," he added.

To his credit he has done so himself  he is not sporting his religion around. He is not making points about things he can and cannot do because of Islam. He is just one of the guys who most of us find harmless pop stars who do well for their fans. He is not on One Direction because of his religion, but because of his talent, good looks and marketability.

He comes form a traditional family and he observes holidays, and celebrations with them. He grew up as a minority and with that you must hold into your values. Christians celebrate holidays and so do Jews and Hindus and what's not. If those attackers are against all religions, it's a one thing, if they are not for Islam--then too bad for them. It's all about family, we are born into a religion regardless of what people of faith have you believe   

Zayn Malik should really not sweat the small stuff, instead he he should focus on the millions of supporters that he has sending him love every day, it isn't easy to ignore the haters—especially when they are attacking your religion. It has not been an easy road for Zayn, who has gotten really upset over the angry tweets.
Speaking of abuse he receives from some people on Twitter, he told The Sun's Fabulous magazine: “Nasty things [were said] like I’m a terrorist, and this and that. How can you justify that? How can you call me that and get away with it?
"[They] shouldn’t have wound me up, but [they] did," he said, admitting that the negative, degrading messages that he has received have managed to get under his skin. Of course, this is normal—what can anyone expect from a 19-year-old kid? This is all new to him and, sadly, his religion has made him a target.

It really hurts when other Muslims attack him for not doing what they think is right, the guy is no saint and neither are we. We like to tell other people how to live their lives, but when it comes to our own lives, they are riddled with imperfections. Such ignorant comments will further isolate a young and talented man who can make a positive impact. He is just a kid who likes to sing and to self promote, if you disagree then go deactivate your Facebook account.
