Saudi Arabia usually works on Islamic law of sharia, you know, the eye-for-an-eye type of deal. But what happens if you’ve made it harder for the uglies to court the ladies—or made it hard for ladies to contain themselves—by just being too damn gorgeous? Well since they technically can’t rip your face off, because you didn’t rip anyone’s face off (eye for an eye, remember?), apparently they can deport you.
This is what happened to Omar Borkan Al Gala when religious police kicked him and a few friends out of a festival for being ridiculously good looking. “A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission [for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vices] members feared female visitors could fall for them," reports Arabic newspaper Elaph. Pictures of Al Gala have surfaced, and by the looks of it, his face actually looks photoshopped to perfection. Ah, to have a long list of haters.
For those who see themselves as handsome and plan to visit Saudi Arabia in the near future, change your plans. Because the desert country will have you listed on its Too Fly to Fly list.
