The Triggers Behind Haryana, Nuh, Gurgaon Violence
Bajrang Dal, Vishwa Hindu Parishad, and Matrishakti Durgavahini have organized a religious yatra. Still, some anti-social elements tried to stop it by throwing stones and petrol bombs and sticks at the participants of this yatra when it was going towards the Shiv temple in Nalhar, Nuh.
As per reports, due to this violence in Nuh and Gurgaon, two home guards have been reported dead and identified as Gursevak and Neeraj, and there are also reports of 200 injured people and burning vehicles in 100 quantities. So what lead to this destructive violence? Let’s understate.
As per the police officials, the violence started after 10 minutes when a religious march of 200 people around 02:00 pm started to move from Edward Chowk in Nuh town. And suddenly, a group of mobs started throwing rocks at the yatra. However, after some time, they ran, and the Hindu group again regrouped for their yatra.
Police officials have said there were rumors that Monu Manesar will also join this religious yatra. Monu was a member of Bajrang Dal and a cow vigilante, accused of killing 2 Muslims in February, whose bodies were found in a four-wheeler in the Bhiwani district.
During a video on social media, Monu Manesar, a wanted criminal for a double murder case, has been seen saying that he will be joining the march and that people should also come together to join this religious yatra. However, Monu Manesar has not taken part in the yatra because VHP said that it would raise conflicts, and also he has received various threats on Twitter which dared him to come to Nuh.
