The AMU and AIMIM leader, who has now reportedly been booked for his threat to behead those who insult Islam has a history of violence and radical Islamism.
Zuberi, a cabinet member of Aligarh Muslim University Student Union (AMUSU), was earlier accused of instigating riots during the anti-CAA protests inside the AMU campus in December last year. The Uttar Pradesh police had arrested Farhan Zuberi in May for his involvement in unleashing violence inside the campus during the protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
On December 15, Zuberi and a Muslim mob had attacked a police and had pelted stones at them. Farhan was charged with stone pelting on police vehicle, damage to public property, preventing govt officials from discharging their duties, attack on the vehicle of City SP, and several other offences.
A total of 11 cases under various sections of IPC were registered against Zuberi under various charges at the Civil Lines police station. Farhan Zuberi is a resident of Islamnagar in Budaun in Uttar Pradesh. He is a student of DSW in the Arts department at the AMU.

AMU student leader Farhan Zuberi calls for beheading
In a shocking act, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) student leader Farhan Zuberi had called for the beheading of individuals who dares to dishonour Prophet Muhammad on Live TV. His threats came at the backdrop of the recent Islamic terror attacks in France and the subsequent global campaign of Muslims to boycott French products over the Charlie Hebdo row.
In a video posted by Zuberi on Twitter on October 29, the AIMIM leader was seen giving open threats to behead people if they are found disrespecting Prophet Muhammad.
Speaking at a protest rally, Zuberi said, “If anyone commits blasphemy, we will behead him. The foundation of Islam is based on the Kalma (la ila ilalla..muhammad rasoolullah). If anyone does wrong to our Creator, then we will not tolerate this. French President says that the (Charlie Hebdo) cartoons, which were projected on buildings in public view, was freedom of expression.”
After getting caught of issuing threats to behead, Zuberi had even justified his hate speech by saying, “Absolutely. How can someone dare to disrespect our Prophet? Why should anyone do this?”.
