THE family of singer Zayn Malik got death threats from Muslim fanatics after his teen sister tweeted a photo of a Christmas tree, by Jerry Lawton.
The extremists accused the family of “insulting Islam” and warned of “retribution”.
Former One Direction singer Zayn celebrates Christmas as well as Muslim festivals such as Eid because he hails from a dual-faith family.
While dad Yaser follows Islam, mum Trisha was born a Christian.
Meanwhile Zayn, 23, was last night looking set for a Christmas No1 after a surprise duet with Taylor Swift he released shot to the top of the US iTunes chart. They recorded the song for the soundtrack to steamy movie Fifty Shades Darker.
How can Muslims integrate into the West with this sort of pressure from the fundamentalists? It is difficult to leave Islam. The penalty is death. Indeed, from an earlier post:
Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the most renowned and prominent Muslim cleric in the world, … once famously said: “If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment, Islam wouldn’t exist today.”
From the highest source: without the death penalty for leaving Islam, Islam would no longer exist. A death cult.
Muslim integration is not like former waves of immigration to the West. Islam is a totalitarian political ideology that refuses to assimilate or release its members.
