Thahir Mohammed Sayyed was going to represent India in the Mr. Gay World pageant this year in South Africa. He has decided to pull out because of gay haters making threats against him and his family. Thahir would have been the only contestant from Asia and I hate it that he has to be afraid.
I am withdrawing from the contest. I hope the organizers appreciate the difficulties I faced. I cannot take this pressure. I have switched off my phone to prevent getting any unwanted calls.
