A few months back Mr. Faisu found himself in a controversy. Reportedly, lawyer Ali Kaashif Khan who sued him previously for braking lockdown rule had again filed a complaint against the social media influencer for spreading domestic violence and cruelty against women.
Talking to a news portal, Ali said, “I came across two videos shot and posted by Faisal, which are offensive in nature. While in one video, he can be seen kicking a woman on her b***, in the other, he is forcibly grabbing a girl’s face and laughing about it. The videos spread domestic violence, cruelty, assault, and use of force against women.”
Ali has also contacted the National Commission for Women (NCW) and Maharashtra State Commission for Women (SCW). Ali Kaashif Khan is the same lawyer who helped Faisal in obtaining bail when he was involved in a controversy for posting an objectionable video back in 2017.
