Omar Borkan Al Gala is one of three men who were arrested by religious police at an annual cultural festival in Saudi Arabia.
He’s an actor, a photographer and a poet.
The men were visiting Saudi Arabia from the United Arab Emirates to attend the annual Jenadrivah Heritage & Cultural Festival
in Riyadh. They were apparently minding their own business when members
of Saudi Arabia’s religious police entered the pavilion and forcibly
removed them from the festival. Their offense? They were considered “too handsome” to stay for fear that women would find them irresistible, according to the Arabic-language newspaper Elaph.
Al Gala has been setting himself up as every woman’s dream on his
Facebook page. Here’s one of his posts:
“Last night I looked up into the
stars and matched each one with a reason why I love you. I was doing
great untill I ran out of stars.”
Borkan Al Gala, a Dubai native, posted a link to an article about the deportation on his Facebook page.
Although he didn’t admit to being one of the men in question, his
dashing good looks and sly smile were enough to set the Internet abuzz.
rumors swirling around Borkan Al Gala haven’t yet been confirmed. He’s
been elusive about the question on his Facebook page.
“The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.”
