A seasoned rising goalkeeping star of the Sweden’s Women national soccer team, Ronja Andersson has been threatened by fans for converting to Islam despite excelling on the green turf of Uppsala and the national team.
Andersson however has revealed “I am proud to be Muslim!“ as she no longer fears talking about her conversion to Islam in public. Faced with scathing criticism, and a victim of a hate campaign that reached its peak on the internet, the young high-level sportswoman, strong in her deep convictions, managed to ignore this poisonous climate and assert herself as a Swedish citizen of Muslim faith, very attached to her country as well as to the values of her new faith.
While her critics redoubled their efforts to discredit her, arguing that she had converted under the influence of her Muslim boyfriend, from whom she is now separated, Ronja Andersson took to social media to deny vigorously this despicable rumor.
“No, contrary to what those who denigrate and insult me incessantly, I did not convert because of my ex-boyfriend! I took this decision alone, deep in my soul and conscience, after having thought long and deepened my knowledge of Islam by reading a lot,” said the talented goalkeeper.
“I am happy to have become a Muslim. I entered a beautiful faith and that fills my heart with joy. I have never been in such close proximity to God and I feel how much He helps me in my life, “ said Ronja Andersson most recently appeared on a TV show called “Troll Hunter” during which she identified a person who sent a hate letter to her house.
The identified person who also attended the show, apologized to Andersson.
