The 19-year-old said that he was raised in a mosque and was born to a Christian mother and a Muslim father.
He emphasised that his father had compelled him to attend to the mosque when he was younger. He also said that he eventually converted to Christianity because he disliked being there.
In a recent installment of the Zero Conditions podcast, Khaid gave a speech.
“I was a Muslim before because my dad was a Muslim and my mum was a Christian. So, I just felt the connection to Christianity more.
“Right from time I didn’t like going to the mosque actually. My dad forced me. But my parents were free minded people.
“They told my siblings and I that we can choose any religion we want. But we live among Muslims and my dad doesn’t want it to seem like he doesn’t have control over his children so he used to force me to go to the mosque.
“At that time I was trying to please him so I was going to mosque. But after some time, I switched and started going to church.
“My elder sister and younger brother are Muslims. But me and the rest of the five are Christians.”
