Is Sinead O’Connor a Muslim?

“This is to announce that I am proud to have become a Muslim. This is the natural conclusion of any intelligent theologian’s journey. All scripture study leads to Islam. Which makes all other scriptures redundant. I will be given (another) new name. It will be Shuhada’,” Sine…sorry, she had tweeted.
‘The word revert refers to the idea that were you to study the Qu’ran, you would realise you were a Muslim all your life and you didn’t realise it. That’s what happened to me. I’m 52, I grew up in a very different Ireland than the one that exists now. It was a very oppressed country, religiously speaking. Everybody was miserable, nobody was getting any joy in God’ Sinead told the host Ryan Tubridy as per Metro.
