Noorudin was in Rampur. Rampur at that time was an independent princely state and now it is a part of UP state of India , Noorudin was there from age 27-30, See the book by Zaf Khan, page 11. He was apparently open to men falling in love with other men, he even facilitated one-such encounter. Further, Noorudin and the other english biography on Noorudin’s life seems to have purposely left out this important story.
