Internet And SMS Services To Remain Suspended In Nuh And Adjoining Areas

The state government announced on Wednesday that mobile internet and SMS services will not resume till August 5 in Haryana’s Nuh and some other locations. Following the most recent communal confrontations, this is being done to avoid any disruption of the peace and public order.

Except for Nuh, services will continue to be halted in Faridabad, Palwal, and the Gurugram district subdivisions of Sohna, Pataudi, and Manesar.

However, the internet blackout was partially lifted on Thursday from 1 to 4 p.m. in Sohna, Pataudi, and Manesar in Gurugram, Faridabad, and Nuh.

On Thursday, the curfew was also loosened for a short while in the violent Nuh. The Haryana Police reported that on Wednesday night, petrol bombs were thrown at two mosques in the Nuh district.

After automobiles were set on fire in Nuh on Monday, July 31, and stones were thrown during a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) religious march, violence broke out in many locations.

The administration put limits in several other areas as well after ordering the suspension of mobile internet and SMS services in Nuh district starting at 4 p.m. on Monday until August 2. The restrictions were put in place due to the “intense communal tension” and disturbance of the calm in the community.

The order to extend the suspension of mobile internet and SMS services till August 5 read, “This order is extended to prevent any disturbance of peace and public order in the jurisdiction of districts Nuh, Faridabad, Palwal and territorial jurisdiction of sub division Sohna, Pataudi and Manesar of district Gurugram in the state of Haryana and shall be in force up to 05.08.2023 (23:59 hrs).”

As vandalism and arson continued in Gurugram and a Bajrang Dal leader passed away in the hospital, bringing the total number of casualties in the communal violence to six, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar requested four more companies of central forces on Wednesday. The central forces have already stationed 20 companies in Haryana: 14 in Nuh, 3 in Palwal, 2 in Gurugram, and 1 in Faridabad.

Bhupinder Singh Hooda, a Congress leader, claimed on Wednesday that the BJP-JJP government’s “failure” to act quickly to stop the disruption of law and order was to blame for the violence in Nuh and other parts of Haryana. He pleaded on people to uphold harmony and brotherhood and disregard rumours.

A mob attacked and set fire to a chief judicial magistrate of Nuh’s extra district and her three-year-old daughter’s car during the attack on a religious procession in the area, according to a FIR.

According to the FIR filed at City Nuh police station on Tuesday, Anjali Jain, the additional chief judicial magistrate (ACJM), and her daughter had to flee for their life on Monday when the attackers threw stones and fired shots at them. The judge, her daughter, and employees were forced to seek refuge in a workshop at Nuh’s former bus stop. Later, some advocates came to their aid.

Anil Vij, the home minister for Haryana, stated on Wednesday that social media has significantly contributed to the violence in Nuh and that the state government has established a three-person team to monitor social media activity starting on July 21. He declared that the committee would pursue necessary legal action against anyone found to be disseminating hate speech or false information.

The Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) and its youth wing Bajrang Dal staged protests against the attack on a religious procession they organised in Nuh, Haryana, on Wednesday. Alok Kumar, the working president of the VHP, said that “lakhs of people” participated in the “successful” holding of protests in every district throughout the nation.

According to a report by the news agency PTI, some Muslim migrants are considering leaving Gurugram after the communal violence there, at least temporarily. According to the report, some Hindu migrants in Nuh have made the decision to leave the city. The migrant families, including children, are getting ready to flee the area on foot as a curfew is put in place in the neighbourhood.

“It has come to our knowledge that some workers are returning to their native places but the situation in Gurugram is normal. Our confidence building exercise continues with RWAs and slum area residents. They should not fear, and we assure them of their safety and security,” said Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Nishant Kumar Yadav.

Monu Manesar, a member of the Bajrang Dal who was charged with the murder of two Muslim men in February and who some have claimed was the catalyst for the Nuh violence, was free to be pursued by the Rajasthan Police, according to Haryana CM Khattar on Wednesday. Khattar claimed that the Rajasthan Police had filed the most recent complaint against cow vigilante Monu Manesar.

Saharanpur, Shamli, and Muzaffarnagar districts in Uttar Pradesh’s bordering Haryana were put on high alert following communal unrest in the adjoining state. In order to keep an eye out for criminals, checking and patrolling were also being done in regions along the border between Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, said Ajay Kumar Sahni, Deputy Inspector General (DIG), Saharanpur Range.

The skirmishes that broke out in Nuh on Monday when a mob attempted to disrupt a Vishva Hindu Parishad march by throwing stones and setting cars on fire resulted in the deaths of six persons, including two home guards and a cleric. Following the Nuh clash on Monday, the Gurugram district, which borders Delhi, also documented numerous instances of burning and vandalism.
