Zayn Malik accused of 'pimping Islam'
One Direction's Zayn Malik has been accused of trying to convert young fans to Islam. An anti-Islam commentator has warned parents to "keep their daughters away" from the band. In her American blog, Debbie Schlussel accused the 19-year-old, who has a British Pakistani father and an English mother, of "pimping Islam" to children.
However Zudhi Jasser, an American Muslim who frequently warns of Islamic radicalisation, rejected the claims, reports the Daily Star newspaper.
He said: "I would say all the power to him to be respectful to his faith and be proud of it." (...)
