Fashion photographer Omar Borkan Al Gala one of three men thrown out of kingdom this month
Dubai fashion photographer and actor Omar Borkan Al Gala has been revealed as one of three Emirati men deported from Saudi Arabia this month for being deemed too handsome.
The men were ejected from a festival in the conservative Gulf kingdom as authorities feared women could become attracted to them, it was reported.
According to Arabic language Elaph newspaper, the UAE nationals were taking part in a heritage event in the capital Riyadh when they were thrown out by Saudi’s religious police.
Saudi Arabia, a strictly conservative Sunni Muslim society, prohibits women from interacting with unrelated males.
“A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” the newspaper said.
More photos of Al Gala can be seen on his Facebook page
Happens to me all the time..lol
Could that picutre be any more photoshopped?
It looks like he has wax growing on his cheeks!
A "photographer" should have a better picture!
Wow, some nasty jealous comments here from the guys. Let the ladies decide please.
Wow... I would look gorgeous with that much photoshop!?
and how is that related to Arabian News??!!
As a lady I can only say that there are far more breathtakingly handsome men with a dignified demeanor, nothing is more attractive than a handsome man or a beautiful lady who have self respect & dignity.
Good thing there's no such law from my country or else I'll get deported too. JK.
