Too sexy for their ghutras: Saudi police remove Arab men from culture festival for being too handsome
THREE men were forcibly removed from a culture festival in Saudi Arabia after religious police deemed the men “too handsome.” A festival official said the three Emiratis were removed because of fears that they might ignite the passions of female visitors.
According to this report, the the identities of the three illegally handsome men are unknown, but speculation on the Internet now suggests that one of them could be Omar Borkan Al Gala, pictured below.
Al Gala, a poet, actor and all-round pretty boy, hasn’t confirmed that he was one of the men judged too sexy for Saudi Arabia, but on his Facebook page he posted a link to an article about the deportation with the comment:
This is what written in newspapers in over the world 🙂
If Al Gala is not one of those shown the door he has done nothing to dampen the rumours that he is – choosing instead to continue posting his smouldering photographs.
