If Hasan is a "radical" Muslim, then his religious beliefs are part of "radical" Islam.

In which case the authorities can disregard this "beard" nonsense. Along with any other demand he makes regarding his religious beliefs.

Of course the Americans won't even admit that his religious beliefs had anything to do with his actions. A case of workplace violence, eh?
