Sheikh Rashid's handbag is none of your business

Sheikh Rashid's handbag is none of your business

Is it a handbag? A man-purse? A shopping bag? Either way, the man has spoken
Updated 13 Sep, 2017

Sheikh Rashid has never been known to follow rules.

So why should he care about conforming to gender stereotypes when it comes to accessories... right?

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.

He looked different and graceful. Keep it up you are our hero. Without Cigar you person seems to be incomplete. You are symbol of patriotism for Pakistanis whether you are in London or playing hide and seek with Police in front of Lal Haveli.

Sheik Rashid is one of my very likeable person,as he speaks the truth,which HURTS the opposition,especially the corrupted thieves who stole poor people of Pakistans money,and enjoying in London andDubai.These people have no shame,I urge the people to vote PTI and give them a chance to see what they can do to prosper Pakistan.

It's like the bags that those Khaadi-type stores give out. It's not a man-purse, which can only ever mean a wallet. Wallets will never go obsolete (message to all handbag makers).

May be he carries vitamin tablets, oranges, water and few basic necessities and does not want any miscreant to contaminate them in his absence :-) IMHO.

Perhaps he is taking care of his wife's bag like many other husbands doing it while their masters are roaming around for a gossip over a Tequila shot in a page 3 parties .
