Faisal Shaikh Facts
- He calls his fanbase “FaisuSquad”.
- The reason behind terminating his TikTok was complex, but it revolved around a video of him and his Team 07, where they spoke about an event that happened on June 18, 2019. On that day, an angry mob beat a 22-year-old man named Tabrez Ansari for committing robbery in Jharkhand, India. He died in police custody 4 days later, and the video featuring Hasnain Khan, Faisal, and other influencers spoke of Tabrez’s innocence but stated that if his family decided to vengeance in the future, it wouldn’t be terrorism. The legal complaint was then filed with Mumbai police and TikTok terminated his account for inciting violence.
