TikTok ‘celebrities’ instigate further hatred in name of Tabrez Ansari, propagate revenge over his death

Amidst this, a disturbing trend is emerging on TikTok. Recently, a popular TikTok ‘influencer’, Hasnain Khan, shared a video. In the shocking video, Khan is seen with four other ‘influencer’ friends of his saying, “you may have killed that innocent Tabrez Ansari, but tomorrow if his son takes revenge, do not say that all Muslims are terrorists.”
