SHOCK: Muslim man, Mohammed Fayaaz Kazi, was beaten to death by two white men in Ventersdorp, South Africa, because of his beard. According to the Mail & Guardian, Mohammed Fayaaz Kazi was with his father’s friend Anser Mahmood when he was attacked at a Chicken Licken outlet .
“Two white people … they called him [Osama] bin Laden in Afrikaans because of his beard … and then they called us kaffirs,” Mahmood said on Wednesday. “[Fayaaz] understood Afrikaans and was arguing with them.”
All four were thrown out of the fast food shop, and the fight continued outside. ”I asked why they were troubling him and he punched me,” Mahmood (33) said. “I don’t know what he hit me with. I was unconscious.”
Mahmood was mostly hit in the face. Kazi was beaten over the head. Mahmood said he did not know what object was used to attack Kazi as he was lying on his side. Kazi was transferred from one hospital to another before dying at a medical facility in Potchefstroom from brain damage. His funeral was held on Tuesday. Source
Don’t quite know what to make of this, but if this man was killed because of his beard, it’s a reprehensible act that should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
