On April 14 afternoon, Nur said on Facebook live: “No Muslim can support Awami League. Those who support the Awami League are fake Muslims. They take bribes, engage in extortion, drug trafficking and tender business and claim themselves as Muslims.”

Earlier on Monday afternoon, Mahanagar Chhatra League leader Kishore Jahan Sourav filed a case under the Digital Security Act in Sylhet on the same charge.

There were two more cases filed against Nur in Dhaka on Sunday.

The draconian law has been used by the government even against journalists to silence any form of criticism.
