The pastor of that rebellious Lutheran Church in Madison, Wisconsin was caught trying to sneak out of the besieged compound wearing a nice summer frock with flats, white gloves, a necklace of cultured pearls and one of those go-to-meetin’ hats the older ladies still wear, sometimes.
Got it wrong again:
The leader of a radical mosque besieged by Pakistani security forces in Islamabad has been caught trying to escape wearing a woman’s burqa.
Security forces seized Maulana Abdul Aziz as he tried to leave the Red Mosque amid a crowd of women.
The mosque has been besieged by Pakistani troops after gun battles with armed students killed 16 Tuesday. They have been told to give themselves up.
Clerics at the mosque are campaigning for Islamic Sharia law to be enforced.
The deputy commissioner of police in Islamabad, Chaudhry Muhammad Ali, described how the cleric tried to escape wearing the all-enveloping dress worn by Muslim women.
“The maulana came out of the mosque with a group of girls wearing a burqa and carrying a handbag. The girls protested when he was stopped. But officers were suspicious and after a search, Maulana Abdul Aziz was identified and arrested,” he told the BBC.
Another security official told AFP that the cleric had been picked out because of his “unusual demeanour”.
“The rest of the girls looked like girls, but he was taller and had a pot belly,” the official said.
Prolly he just has sensitive skin and was fresh out of SPF30.
