A day after Mumbai Police registered First Information Report (FIR) against a group of people for circulating a video related to mob lynching of Tabrez Ansari, the Tik Tok Star Mr Faisu aka Faisal Shaikh tendered an apology on Instagram and stated that they did not mean to hurt the sentiment of anyone.
The matter came to light when a Shiv Sena IT Cell core committee member named Ramesh Solanki filed a complaint against Tik Tok Stars at LT Marg Police Station. Following that complaint, the video they had uploaded has been pulled out from the Tik Tok while the account of the same group has reportedly been suspended.
Reaching out to his more than 6 million followers on Instagram, Mr Faisu wrote an apology which reads: “We would like to apologise sincerely if any people have felt hurt by our video. Hamara irada, kisi ka dil dukhana, ya unka apmaan karna, nahi tha. Humne video ko nikaal diya hai. Jai Hindi!” (We did not mean to hurt or insult anyone. The video has been removed, Jai Hind!)
The video was uploaded on the video-sharing app Tiktok by Faisu, Hasnain, Faiz and Sadhan (Saddu).
According to reports, in the alleged video, the whole gang of Tik Tok Stars that goes with the name Team07 was seen enacting a message that tells: “Innocent Tabrez was lynched, but if Tabrez’s son grows up and takes revenge then Muslims shouldn’t be branded as terrorists.”
