Salafist got a nose job and was promptly kicked out of the party

A salafist Egyptian Member of Parliament was booted out from the ultra-conservative al-Nour party in a  scandal over getting a nose job and then lying about it, Al Ahram reports.

MP Anwar El-Balkimy had originally told reporters from his hospital bed that he had been attacked by masked gunmen on a desert highway between Cairo and Alexandria last week. He recounted being robbed, beaten and left unconscious in the road.

Note: Getting a nose job is haram in Islam
