i have read about salwar kameezs on wiki and nowhere does it mention it belongs to any arab country.it says salwar kameez originated in iran and then brought to india and pak.i am pretty sure the women in salwars might be following some pakistani fashion or might have been inspired by bollywood.
First of all no Arabs know what the hell a Shalwar is. Secondly that is one of the many regional varieties of a Arab Omani traditional dress. Whatever it resembles other similar dresses from other parts of the world is completely irrelevant. Arab/Semitic clothes has influenced many non-Arab countries since ancient times. Especially Arab ones in the Islamic world.

National Dress - Women
Now this is not about Indian dresses so please leave that alone. This is an Arab dress. End of discussion. We Arabs have a wealth of colorful dresses and very diverse since the Arab world is HUGE. Alone on the Arabian Peninsula we have a big, big diversity. Yemen is famous for this. Each region, town, hell even tribe, has it's own distinct clothes depending on the occasion. You might not believe that but I showed it more than well in this thread.
I don't see the need for now 2 Indian members to claim Arab dresses as Indian. What is the point other than trolling and showing ignorance?
This thread was my try of showing the many colorful and diverse traditional Arab dresses from KSA, Yemen and in general other parts of the Arabian Peninsula and the Arab world but in return I was met with trolling posts, off-topic posts, post of no value and now this on the last 2 pages. All which destroys a thread and make us start these pointless discussions.
