Sheikh Rashid has never been known to follow rules.

A picture of Sheikh Rashid carrying what appears to be a handbag has been shared on social media, with some people poking fun at the politician for carrying a 'ladies bag'.

But does the man care? No.

In fact, the Awami Muslim League leader worked it like a boss and was the first to share the pictures on Twitter.

Call it a handbag, a shopper or a man-purse, Sheikh Rashid is least bothered by people's comments on the matter and he proved it at a recent press conference when a reporter asked him about it.

"That was a shopper to hold a two-pound cigar, if my shopper looks like a purse then aap ka shukriya," he clarified.

And with a smile and swift salam he took his leave.
