List of banned items at Sharjah Airport includes moustaches?

Apart from the usual list of banned items when flying to or from Sharjah Airport - drugs, explosives, firearms, bottles with liquids, etc, apparently moustaches are also on the list, at least according to a Gulf News report on 30 Dec 2013.

It seems unlikely that the Gulf News would make up such an odd sounding story, and also unlikely that a newspaper as reputable as the Gulf News would publish such a story if they did not believe it in the first place. But we suppose it's possible that the traveller just made the whole thing up, it does sound rather peculiar to us.
