A video of a security guard reprimanding a long-haired man and asking him to cover up while inside the National Mosque recently went viral on social media

In the 36-second clip, the man was seen sitting inside the mosque before a female security guard asked him to put on a robe.

"You have to wear this robe. Can you go down and wear the robe? You cannot wear like this out in the open," said the security guard.

"But I'm a man," he replied.

Despite explaining that he's not a woman, the security guard insisted that he must change his attire.

"I'm not a woman, I don't need to cover my hair. It's not my aurat," the man replied.
