British-Pakistani singer Zayn Malik in an interview with  British Vogue recently revealed that he doesn’t call himself a Muslim anymore. Earlier, the Pillow talk singer’s images with girlfriend Gigi Hadid surfaced as they celebrated Eid together with his family, which his huge fan following took in warm spirits.  

During the interview, the singer when asked about his religious beliefs said,  "To be honest, I've never spoken publicly about what my religious beliefs are. I'm not professed to be a Muslim." 

"Would he call a Muslim now?" the interviewer asked. 

Zayn added: "No, I wouldn't." 

The reaction over Malik’s statements about his religious beliefs are mixed. Some fans are in utter shock and some say that they saw it coming. The shock came because Zayn's father is a Pakistani Muslim and apparently, belongs to a Muslim family.

Revealing details about his relationship with One Direction band-mates, the 25-year-old singer, further said that he hasn’t talked to any of his ex-band members ever since he left. According to him, some ‘Snide things’ were said by his band mates after his leaving. Zayn left the band first in 2015, rest of the members took the interval after one year.

Malik recently released his new single, 'Fingers', and is preparing to announce a release date for his second album – the follow up to 2016's hit record 'Mind of Mine'.
