MEET: Omar Borkan Al Gala | The man deported from Saudi Arabia for being too handsome

It’s a good problem to have, but it’s still a problem for three men who have reportedly been deported from Saudi Arabia for being “too handsome.”

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.

Borkan 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.

The 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.”
