Uttar Pradesh: Muslim man shaves beard, creates a fake attack story to save himself from family’s anger

When interrogated about the details of the attack on him, Farooq admitted that there was no attck and he had concocted the story to claim victimhood and save himself from his family's wrath.

In a strange incident, a Muslim man in Baghpat created a tense situation after he faked an attack on himself claiming that a group of miscreants had attacked and shaved off his beard in a train while he was returning to Baghpat from Delhi.

However, after the initial investigation, it was found that he had concocted a fake story and had falsely claimed an attack on himself. The man had shaved off his own beard and had claimed that some ‘miscreants’ had done it to him.

According to reports, Mohammad Farooq, a resident of new Basti Mughalpura of Baghpat, reached home on Thursday night and informed his family that he boarded the train from Baghpat Road railway station to Delhi. He claimed that four youths forcibly took him off the train and cut his beard at the Sunhera railway halt. He said the attackers also stole Rs10,000 from him.

Reportedly, Farooq had started growing his beard in an Ijtima that took place in the city five years ago. However, lately, he was uncomfortable with his beard due to the heat. He wanted to get rid of his beard. But, Farooq could not get his beard cut due to family and social pressure in the Muslim community.

Around seven o’clock on Thursday morning, he boarded a truck from Baghpat to Delhi and met his friend Hasim after reaching the capital. Farooq asked his friend to shave his beard but his friend refused to shave. Later both of them reached a hair salon shop and Farooq got his beard cut.

Later in the evening, he had returned home from Delhi. As he landed at the bus stand in Baghpat, he got scared of his family following his new look without his usual beard. Fearing a strong reaction from the family, Farooq allegedly concocted a false story and tore off his clothes to convince the villagers that an attack had taken place on him in the train. He claimed that the attackers forcefully shaved his beard.

Farooq’s relatives soon complained about the matter by posting a tweet where they had tagged the Home Minister, Chief Minister, Railway Minister, DGP and the local SP.

On the information, SP Pratap Gopendra Yadav directed ASP Anil Kumar Singh, police officer Ompal Singh to reach the spot and take action.
When interrogated about the details of the attack on him, Farooq admitted that there was no attck and he had concocted the story to claim victimhood and save himself from his family’s wrath.
It is notable here that there have been many such incidents of claiming false attacks involving religious angles to claim victimhood.
There have also been many incidents where petty criminals had complained that there were beaten up after being forced to chant ‘Jai Sri Ram’, in an attempt to hide their crimes and claim victimhood by exploiting the religious hatred angle.
