My classmates tease me by calling me Basheer because I have a beard and no one in my class does. What shoul I do so they stop calling me ?

They are trying to "get your goat." IOW, to get you to react… to get a ‘rise’ out of you. If they get you to react to them, then you are letting them control you… you are in THEIR movie.

Ignore the taunts. If they can’t get you to react, first they may escalate (be more and more outrageous) but then they will stop. It’s just no fun for them if they can’t get you to react. When you decline to be in their movie, you are making your OWN movie in which your classmates become just an annoying sideline. Much better.
