Recently a video related to, “Jonny Bairstow accepts Islam” has spread throughout YouTube. Many YouTube channels have uploaded the video. However, no authentic confirmation has been made about Bairstow accepting Islam.
Jonny Bairstow, is a wicket-keeper batsman who has represented England in 49 Tests and 32 ODI’s. In the start of the video the man (Bairstow or his look-alike) addresses himself as the citizen of England (UK). Further, he is heard saying that he converted seven months ago.
When asked about, How he came to know about Islam? He points out to his city i.e Yorkshire. To the surprise Jonny Bairstow hails and plays for Yorkshire. So a match facing and address can be a coincidence and may the new can be true too. However, as the authentic confirmation is yet to come we can’t say anything.
Currently Jonny Bairstow is on tour of Australia where The Ashes 2017-18 is currently being played. So, there are many doubts as Jonny is currently on tour. However on the other end the man in the video says about accepting Islam 7 months ago.
Let’s wait if there is any authentic confirmation about this news. Till then saying anything about Jonny Bairstows accepting Islam would be unfair.
