A young Egyptian man was caught wearing “niqab” as he went to his girlfriend's house to meet her, but the villagers beat him up and handed him over to security.
Major General Redha Tablia, head of security of Al-Sharqeya governorate, received a report stating that a number of residents of the village of Sowada Abu Shalabi held a man wearing “niqab” to sneak into his girlfriend's home in the absence of her family.
The villagers noted the young man's way of walking and his shoes before stopping him and removing the veil.
They beat him up and took him on a humiliating tour around the village.
The young man, Ahmed, 22, said that after returning from a vacation outside Egypt, he went to see his friend in the absence of her family because he loves her and her father refused his marriage proposals many times.
However, the neighbors caught him and he was arrested by the police to continue investigations.
