Pak tribal wants to show off 30-inch moustache

Pak tribal wants to show off 30-inch moustache
A Pakistani tribesman, who was forced by militants to flee from his hometown for growing an 30-inch moustache, is keen to display his facial hair at an international competition.

42-year-old Malik Amir Muhammad Khan, a member of the Afridi tribe, said that members of Lashkar-e-Islami declared his moustache ‘un-Islamic’, forcing him to flee from his hometown of Bara in 2008.

‘It was the summer of 2008, when members of the Lashkar-e-Islam arrested me and took me to a religious scholar, who declared the moustache un-Islamic ,’ he said. The moustache was shaved off at gunpoint and Khan moved to Peshawar, the capital of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, where he grew the moustache again over a period of 18 months.
