Gillette Pakistan Mass Shaving Event Canceled Due to Threats

Close Shave.jpgGillette Pakistan's planned "Shave it and Break it" event in Karachi on March 30 was an attempt to break the Indian record of mass shavings, but was canceled due to threats from 'Islamic extremists' in the area. According to the Huffington Post:

"The event ended up being embroiled in controversy when Islamic extremists blasted the website with hate messages and threats to anyone attending the event. "We will stop anyone attending this event and will not hesitate from using force," one commenter wrote on the blog. Another one termed all the people planning to attend the event as 'infidels'. Organizers of the events also received threats from the All Pakistan Federation of Madressahs and other organizations."
