A former lawmaker from Sunamganj 3 constituency (Jagannathpur and South Sunamganj), Shahinur was the legal affairs secretary of now defunct Hefazat's central committee.

Besides, he is also the vice president of Jamiat-e Ulama-e-Islam Bangladesh.

In 2005, Shahinur was elected MP in the Sunamganj 3 by-election after the death of Awami League leader and former foreign minister Abdus Samad Azad.

He, however, contested the general elections in 2008 and 2018 as a candidate of four-party alliance and Jatiya Oikyafront respectively, but lost both the elections.
