However, he mentioned in a tweet that reversion happens after seeking knowledge.

This suggests that he’s still reading about Islam and is yet to make a decision.

“A lot of questions about my religious beliefs. Reversion isn’t something people do, it is something that happens after seeking knowledge”.

“I don’t believe it’s a decision that’s made. Asking me if I did it is obsolete. Has it happened would be more appropriate”.

In a video, Tristan talked about his brother’s conversion to Islam.

He said that Andrew had been leaning towards Islam for a long time and that in the Muslim world, insulting their god is intolerable.

In addition, Tristan said that he feels perfectly at home in the Middle East and displaying the Quran in the house.
