Blindfolded Muslim man hugs strangers after Manchester attack
A blindfolded Muslim man asks strangers for a hug on the streets of Manchester. Baktash Noori, a Mancusian man, stands on the street – blindfolded – with a sign that says: “I'm Muslim and I trust you. Do you trust me enough for a hug?” [arve url="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FTELEGRAPH.CO.UK%2Fvideos%2F10155754694304749%2F&show_text=0&width=560"/] Many Mancusians are queueing up to hug Baktash. He says he wants to “spread love, not hate,” as many come and embrace him saying: “Of course, I trust you,” “We're all the same whatever we are. And [we need to] look after each other,” etc. The heinous suicide bomb attack in Manchester Arena at a pop concert has recently claimed the lives of 22 people and injured around 166 people.
