Hasnain Khan (@hasnaink07) is another member of India's Team 07 squad — which comprises Khan, Faisal Shaikh (aka Mr. Faisu), Adnaan Shaikh, Faiz Baloch, and Sadhan Faroouqi. They collectively have over 63 million followers, and are some of the biggest accounts on TikTok not only in India, but on the entire platform.
At the time of publication, Khan's account was suspended. TikTok suspended his account, as well as those of Farouqi and Mr. Faisu, in early July after the group posted a video condemning the death of a Muslim man named Tabrez Ansari after sustaining injuries from an assault by a Hindu lynch mob. In India, Hindu is the majority religion, and Muslims are often subject to verbal abuse and hate-fueled attacks.
In the now-deleted TikTok video, Team 07 says: "You killed innocent Tabrez Ansari, but tomorrow if his children take revenge, do not say that all Muslims are terrorists." Responses to the video accused the team members of inciting violence with their remarks. TikTok released a statement saying that platform has a "zero-tolerance policy" toward content with a "negative impact" on users in any country, and that it had responded by suspending three accounts for violating community guidelines.
It's not clear when — or even if — the Team 07-suspended accounts will be reinstated to TikTok.
