Telangana’s Home Minister Mahmood Ali might be heading into choppy waters as his grandson’s Tik Tok video has gone viral on social media.
In the video, his grandson Furqan Ahmed, along with his friend, is seen daring the police as they perch themselves on a car belonging to none other than the Director-General of Police (DGP) himself.
Ahmed has identified himself as an engineering student and also the managing director of a TV channel on social media.
Watch #Telangana Home Minister Mehmood Ali’s grandson, Furqan Ahmed, sitting atop a police vehicle and making a Tik Tok video. This, even as the security personnel is standing right beside the official car. Would a common man get away, if he ever did this? pic.twitter.com/K60yQqVDbS

Despite being the grandson of state Home Minister, Ahmed, in the video, is seen disrespectfully sitting on the car (TS09PA 9999), belonging to the Police Transport Organisation, while his friend is seen jumping down and daring the Inspector General of Police (IGP). Furqan Ahmed also has posted several photos of him with this vehicle on his spcial media accounts.
He is seen lip-syncing the dialogue, “Apun ke dost se tameez se aur zaban sambhal ke baat karne ka nahi toh kaat ke rakh denge,” which roughly translated as “better behave and talk properly with my friend, otherwise I’ll chop you into pieces”.
While reciting the dialogue, he is seen enacting the same by sliding his hand across his neck, indicating that he will slice his throat.
Ironically, Ahmed’s grandfather and Telangana Home Minister Mahmood Ali is very much a part of the government that recently transferred some employees for doing the same.
On July 17, employees of the Khammam Municipal Corporation (KMC), who recorded fun Tik Tok videos in their office premises and uploaded them on social media were disciplined by the Telangana government. Taking serious note of this, the state government had cracked a whip by transferring the employees and reducing their wages.
It would be interesting to how Telangana Home Minister reacts to the discourteous behaviour exhibited by his own grandson.
