Dicing with death for a moustache!

Source: ET

PESHAWAR: Pakistani businessman Malik Amir Mohammad Khan Afridi has been kidnapped, threatened with death, forcibly displaced and lives apart from his family: all because of his enormous moustache.

Impeccably trimmed to 30 inches (76 centimetres), Afridi spends 30 minutes a day washing, combing, oiling and twirling his facial hair into two arches that reach to his forehead, defying gravity.

“People give me a lot of respect. It’s my identity,” said the 48-year-old grandfather in Peshawar, when asked why he was prepared to risk everything for his whiskers.

“I feel happy. When it’s ordinary, no one gives me any attention. I got used to all the attention and I like it a lot,” he said.

For centuries, a luxuriant moustache has been a sign of virility and authority on the Indian sub-continent.

  1. Why has he got his both hands up? Could he be holding/ using some very fine string? He has got his both palms closed (Mutthee Bandd). If there is any such supporting trick then mustache may also not be real. At the most it would be a good stunt.
