I can’t believe how many people criticise Bella Hadid for saying that she is muslim. So many people saying she isn’t a real muslim, because she doesn’t fit their mold and stereotypes. Who are those people that they dare to say how another person has to believe or celebrate her faith?
I know that more than half of the people in my country are baptised as Christians and most of them would say they are Christians, they probably go to church once a year and pray whenever they feel like it. At most. Many would have trouble to say the Ten Commandments or remember more than the Pater Noster. Doesn’t diminish their believe though. What they say they believe is something that won’t get questioned by anyone. They pay their taxes to the church so for everyone that asks they are Christians. Never heard someone say: “Oh, but you aren’t a real Christian if you don’t…”
If they are devoted enough is not something for people to judge, but only god. How does it come that people think that for muslims they (who are probably mostly outsiders to that religion) have any say in it?
