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?”
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.
