Fresh violence erupted in Badshahpur on Tuesday as the communal clashes that originated in Nuh district spread to Gurugram. Around 200 men on motorbikes and SUVs vandalized 14 shops in the main market of Badshahpur, while in Gurugram’s Sector 66 area, the mob set fire to 7 stores.

Reports suggest that the mob targeted mainly biryani shops and other food stalls in Badshahpur. This violent episode occurred a day after the mob attacked and set ablaze a mosque in Gurugram’s Sector 57 on Monday. The attack on the mosque resulted in the tragic death of the naib imam, and at least three others were injured, according to the police.

Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Nishant Yadav reassured that the law and order situation was normal, and measures were taken to control the situation. However, he acknowledged that there were some repercussions of the previous day’s events in Nuh, with a death reported in Gurugram’s Sector 57 mosque, five vehicles torched in Sohna, and two to three shops vandalized.

The violence in Nuh district occurred during the ‘Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra’ organized by Vishwa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal. The clashes have resulted in a death toll of five, including two Haryana home guard personnel.

In response to the escalating situation, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar imposed Section 144 CrPC in Gurugram and Nuh, hinting at a potential ‘big conspiracy’ behind the clashes. Section 144 allows the magistrate to prohibit gatherings of four or more people in a specified area.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal expressed deep concern over the communal clashes in Haryana, stating that such incidents are deeply troubling and not a good sign, drawing attention to the importance of maintaining peace and harmony in the region.
