He said: “The Shaving of Young men’s hair by the religious Hisbah group is condemnable.

“The puritanical and self righteous Hisbah has became a toxic and delirious monster targeting the minute crime of the poor and blind to the mega crime of the rich and the powerful.

“In a region ravaged by the scourge and violence of terrorists and bandits,Hisbah should have the courage to stand up to them rather than beheading the ant with the Sword.
