Russian police officers force three Muslim men to cut their beards at gunpoint

Red Hot Russia reports that, during  a raid on a Muslim cafe in the city of Surgut on 3 March, apparently in search of undocumented migrants, officers from the riot police (OMON) threatened customers with automatic weapons and forced three of them to cut their beards.

Afterwards the local TV station conducted a poll on the question: “Are strict measures acceptable for the treatment of migrants?” More than 85% respondents answered “Yes”.
