Farhad hoped his Nur’s patrons, especially some foreign friends and partners, will from now on, recognise this person for what he really is: an enthusiastic and voluntary spokesperson for the ultra right-wing whose stated aims run counter not only to our own constitutional principles but also against the values so vocally espoused by our foreign friends and partners.

Apparently taking side of Hefazat-e-Islam, Nur has placed the badge of 'Fake Muslims' against supporters and leaders of Awami League, which is seen as a "move to stoke religious hatred" in the country.

Appearing on a Facebook live, Nur, available on his account recently, echoed the view asserted by Hefazat leaders to justify the spate of violence they unleashed during the visit of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi in the name of religion.
