Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah told to shave his beard by an Egyptian journalist as it makes him look like a terrorist leading to social media outrage

An Egyptian columnist has ignited a firestorm on social media by calling on Liverpool’s star forward Mohamed Salah to shave his beard, saying he looks like a “terrorist and extremist.”

In an article published Sunday by the state-run newspaper Al-Ahram, Salah Montaser said

Salah should shave his beard as it “puts him in one basket with extremists … and terrorists.”

Fans criticised the article on social media, saying facial hair is a personal choice and that people shouldn’t be judged on their appearance.

Salah is the Premier League’s joint-top scorer along with Tottenham’s Harry Kane, with both strikers sitting on 24 goals this season.

He is a huge celebrity in his native Egypt and last October scored the goals that secured World Cup qualification for the first since 1990.

It goes without saying those inside Egypt who are against the beard are those who have an agenda to promote secularism and remove Islam from the country.

But they can plot all they want and try to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths, but Allah will perfect His light even if they dislike it, as mentioned by Allah in the Quran.
