BreakTheBeard Challenge – Social Media Questioning Cricket’s “Un-Islamic Trend”


BreakTheBeard challenge is back again.

If you are a cricket fan and are following the Indian Premier League (IPL) then you must have heard of the #BreakTheBeard challenge that took place last year. Several star players like Ravindra JadejaRohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya took up the challenge and changed their looks.

This year, players are doing it again. Shikhar Dhawan and Ravindra Jadeja have decided to bring back the trend.

The trend caught up in Pakistan when Shoaib Malik gave Sania Mirza a surprise:

Shahdab Khan, who had previously said he won’t be part of the challenge, also jumped on the bandwagon.

Pakistanis on Twitter quickly put their preacher masks on and became keyboard molvis, claiming that the challenge is un-Islamic. Forget that several things currently taking place in the country are un-Islamic. Let’s worry about the important ones for now. Like a challenge taking place on Twitter.

People even went as far as appealing Imran Khan to take action!


It seems like the country has no problems of its own that people think Imran Khan can pay attention to a challenge on twitter! As if there isn’t a water crisis, a power crisis and a financial crisis looming over us!

We’re sure that your Imaan lies deeper than whether you have a beard or not. And if it doesn’t, your beard is definitely not the problem you should be worried about.
