Home / Albums / Beard Phobia / Beard-phobia


Alaa Zaghlol, 35 years old, an activist who used to take part in many political events and protests against Muabarak regime and military junta. Alaa used to have a beard since Mubarak was ruling Egypt and faced many problems with state security because of his beard although he didn’t shave off it. Usually Alaa visits the victims’ families for solidarity but at one of these visits, a family considered him Islamist and didn’t like to talk with him. He decided to shave off to avoid these situations and respecting to these families.
