Police officers in Russia forced three men in a Muslim cafe to cut their beards at gunpoint, it has been claimed. During an inspection of a Muslim cafe in the Russian city of Surgut police officers apparently threatened some visitors with automatic weapons and with a lighter. One of the men claims an officer held a lighter to his chin and told him 'cut it off or I will burn it off'. The incident allegedly took place on March 3 in the cafe located near a mosque as the men were eating after evening prayers. One of the men said he was forced to use scissors to cut off his long beard. It is believed there were 15 officers in masks and they arrived in four cars. According to Red Hot Russia, witnesses saw people in the uniform of riot police (OMON) burst into cafe place and force visitors onto their knees. Afterwards it claims several people were taken to the police station, where the law enforcement officers checked their documents. It is believed there has been an internal investigation launched by the Russian police. Russian news agencies have said the officers were implementing the rules of 'Peter the Great' who ruled the Tsardom of Russia in the late 1600s. He commanded all of his courtiers and officials to cut off their long beards and imposed an annual beard tax on those who refused.

Do to them whatever you wish.
Were they talking to the moooslim women or men? Not sure . . . . Love how the ruskies ain’t taking no moooslim $hit from them. Cut their beards with a rusty razor blade.
Yes, he did:
I dunno. If they'd let us be I'd say let them be. But they won't.
Cut your beard or we will burn it off is the only option Nidal Hassan should have got.
I say tape them to a chair, apply hot wax, lay cloth over wax then rip the cloth off.
A friend of mine had a brother who went to the police academy with a mustache... the Drill Instructor told him to shave it or he would rub it off with a rock...lol
Rock n’ roll!
So why is this a problem?
Putin doesn’t like the muzzies. Off with their beards!
A “ beard tax” from Peter the Great time period makes this article feel like a hoax ...
Of course this is Russia... They do some strange things...
Although in a just world, the troops would be able to exercise their God given unalienable right to keep and bear arms. And, as soon as the muzzie POS shouted "allah akbar" and started to raise a weapon he should've been shot to hamburger.
Gee, that’s a shame. If it’s true, they should probably apologize or something.
The guys from Duck Dynasty would be in a fix if over there....

It has really happened. Arabs tried to make a big story out of it and filed a petition. A response from police dept was it has nothing to do with racism&profiling and officers has tried to enforce Peter’s law, defunct since earlier 1700s. “Officers underwent additional training to update their legal knowledge etc....No ground for disciplinary action”.
Muzzies thought it was a sneer from the police force.
Be careful what you wish for.
