Another use for a burqa

Firas Press (Arabic) reports a story about an Egyptian man who was not allowed to marry the woman he loved, presumably due to family objections.

His sweetheart agreed to marry another man, and this Egyptian decided he wanted to secretly attend the wedding.

So he covered himself in a burqa and went in drag.

Unfortunately, he made a mistake - he didn't change his shoes.

The women immediately recognized that he was an impostor and his plan was foiled.
