WATCH: Blindfolded Muslim man asks for hugs in emotional trust experiment after Manchester attack

A Muslim video blogger has taken to the streets of Manchester, asking shoppers if they trust him enough to give him a hug.

Baktash Noori stood on a busy street with his eyes blindfolded and his arms wide open, waiting to see if anyone would stop and throw their arms around him.

Noori said he wanted to offer the small act of kindness to show that he and other Muslims were hurting following the horrific terror attack which killed 22 people.


The whole social experiment, which is likely to bring a tear to your eye, was filmed and uploaded to YouTube where it has been viewed more than 333,000 times.
