After DSA cases for 'hurting religious sentiments', Nur apologises for April 14 Facebook live

Former Ducsu VP Nurul Haque Nur early today apologised for his statement on Facebook live after at least two Digital Security Act cases were filed against him on charge of hurting the religious sentiment of Awami League activists and supporters.

He took to Facebook live again today around 12:00am and spoke for an hour on different issues, including his comment where he allegedly said Awami League men are "not real Muslims".

"I apologise if anybody was hurt by my statement during Facebook live on April 14," he said, adding he had also apologised the day after making the comments.

"If I make a mistake, I will apologise a hundred times...  I may be wrong, [but] I am human, not an angel… So I apologise," he said.

He, however, termed the cases filed over the incident a political conspiracy, which has been going on against him and many others for a long time.

Nur claimed he took advice from many well-wishers and they asked him to be little more tolerant, even not attack his enemies, and be careful in choosing his words.

Nur said for these reasons he had earlier sought an apology and deleted the controversial live video.

At least three cases -- two in Dhaka and one in Sylhet-- were filed under Digital Security Act following Nur's statement.
