A video of a man wearing a costume similar to what was worn during the Ottoman empire, the last widely-acknowledged Caliphate, has made people wonder if he was the proclaimed Muslim Caliph by the radical Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group.

But the alleged Caliph, turned out to be just a visitor to the Sacred House in Mecca, popularly known as Kaaba in Saudi Arabia. The man preferred donning his Caucasian traditional attire after he finished performing a pilgrimage.
