New Delhi: Amidst ongoing communal tensions in the regions of Nuh and Gurugram in Haryana, a disturbing episode unfolded on Tuesday, August 1, as approximately 14 shops, predominantly owned by Muslims, were set ablaze in Gurugram’s Badshahpur, as reported by The New Indian Express.

A crowd of around 200 individuals reportedly congregated at the central market, specifically targeting biryani-selling establishments. The attack was carried out with the utterance of the slogan ‘Jai Shri Ram’, an incident captured by PTI. Subsequently, the market was forced to close.

Reports from Hindustan Times suggest that the same ‘Jai Shri Ram’ chant reverberated outside a mosque in Badshahpur.

“We intervened as some young people were attempting to create a disturbance in the market, chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. Our presence helped defuse the situation,” shared Satish Kumar, the Station House Officer of the Badshahpur police station.

In addition, a group of men reportedly engaged in the vandalism and looting of shops at Pataudi Chowk on Basai Road in Gurugram.

In response to the escalating situation, an order has been issued by district magistrate Nishant Yadav, invoking Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (2 of 1974). This order strictly bars all fuel stations operating in Gurugram district from selling loose petrol/diesel, except for emergencies.

Furthermore, as a precautionary measure, all educational institutions in the Sohna subdivision of Gurugram remained closed on August 2, due to the ongoing violence.

The eruption of violence in Haryana originated on Monday, July 31, amid a ‘Shobha Yatra’ organized by Hindu right-wing groups in the Nuh region.
