The vlogger went on to say that his best childhood friends are Muslim, calling Islam “the religion of peace.”
“Growing up in Europe, the word Islam was always connected with negativity, war, terrorism and to be completely honest, I was never a religious person before so I didn’t really care what people thought back then,” he said.
“My best childhood friends were Muslims and deep inside, we are all human beings in the same simulation we call life.”
Fellow YouTubers, including Sham Idrees, Zaid Ali and showbiz names such as Minal Khan, Zoya Nasir, and Zara Noor Abbas, welcomed Betzmann’s decision to accept Islam.
Minal commented, “Mashallah, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful” whereas Zoya wished the newly convert well saying, “Mashallah! May Allah bless you with all that you desire and more. Lucky are those who find their calling.”
Zaid also commented, “Welcome my brother! May this journey be easy for you and may Allah bless you with all the happiness in the world.” Sham simply congratulated Betzmann.
