Abhinandan moustache, the new fad among Doha Malayalis also


DOHA: What is trending in India now is the distinctive hybrid of a horseshoe moustache and mutton chop sideburns of brave Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who shot down Pak F16 fighter plane and returned to India as a cool-headed hero.

Soon after Abhinandan’s safe return to India, Jibi Abraham, a Qatar-based Malayali was able to style his moustache and beard like Abhinandan and that too from the saloon of a Pakistani youth in Doha.

The beautician’s name is Abdul Kharim Isa and he is from Pakistan’s Rawalpindi. Jibi, an Ernakulam Thiruvaniyoor Elayidathu Inchiparambil family member, said that as soon as he finished styling his moustache, some strangers in the saloon shook hands with him.

“By keeping Abhnandan moustache, my aim is to raise the dignity of the nation and Indian Forces. By now many Malayalis have owned Abhinandan moustache,” he said.
