Maybe the younger generations won’t resort to such extremism? I know the man who committed the bombing in Manchester was young, but still… maybe there’s hope? Or this was all part of some b.s. publicity stunt for his blog? I’m too paranoid for this crap! Lol
Baktash Noori, a Muslim video blogger, offered hugs to people in front of a memorial in Manchester, days after a suicide bombing killed 22 people and injured over 100.
He stood next to a sign that said “I’m a Muslim & I trust you. Do you trust me enough for a hug?”
"I'm Muslim and I trust you." This young man opened his arms to the people of Manchester. pic.twitter.com/QjOnp3ZkCq

“There’s always going to be a couple of idiots, anomalies, I guess you could call them,” Noori said. “I don’t want us as a community, as a religion or race to be judged incorrectly.”
Convert Craig Wallace, who went by Muhammad Mujahid Islam online, posed with a similar sign in Westminster, asking if people trusted him “enough for a hug” in the fall of that same year. A week later, he was arrested for threatening to bomb the house of British Tory MP Charlotte Leslie, who voted for airstrikes in Syria.
