Are we criticizing his decision to wear an African garb?
Its one thing to put on a traditional garb of another culture and try to bond with them.
I believe this has more meaning and will be seen as more genuine if the person doing so respects his own tradition and culture. For example, Granger is a religious person. When he puts on an Indian shirt and go to a Indo church, he seems genuine because the Indos appreciate the fact that he is a religious man, and he is not being seen as a counterfeit or seen as awkward when he does so.
So this begs the question:
What is there that is religious and cultural about Irfan?
Is he a proud Christian, Hindu or Muslim?
jes my 2 cents
You're overanalyzing the guy for wearing a Dashiki. Ease up. He's a politician and does what all politicians do.
