All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi has warned those who forcibly shaved off a Muslim man's beard that he will convert them.

A Muslim man was forcibly taken inside a saloon and was made to shave off his beard in Gurugram a few days ago. Reacting to this, Owaisi threatened the accused that they will be converted and made to grow a beard.

"Beard of a Muslim man was forcibly shaved off. Those who are responsible for it, I am telling them and their fathers, we will be Muslim even if you slit our throat. Instead, we will make you grow a beard and convert you to Islam," Owaisi said.

Jaffruddin, a resident of Haryana had come to Gurugram to meet his friend on August 2. But three men stopped him at Sector 29 in Gurugram and started an argument with him. Jaffruddin who was quiet for a while retaliated back later and started counter arguing.

Later, the three men allegedly thrashed Jaffruddin, took him to a saloon and shaved off his beard. They had even threatened him not to inform the police.

However, Jaffruddin filed a complaint with Gurugram Sector 37 police the next day. The three accused are identified as Gaurav, Eklash from Uttar Pradesh and Nitin from Haryana and have been arrested.
