A Google lens search on the keyframes of the video led us to a Facebook post by @jinnat.kabir.3, dated July 8, 2020. Carrying a longer version of the video, it stated, “Mr. Nurul Haque, head teacher of Uzirpur Sonar Bangla Secondary School in Barisal district. He teaches students privately with great care. (translated from Bengali with the help of Google)”
Notbaly, Barishal (Barisal) is a district in Bangladesh.

It added that a legal action was taken in the matter, and that the video dates back to 2016.
