GURGAON: A grouping of right-wing outfits that organised two mahapanchayats in the aftermath of the Nuh riots announced on Sunday that the “Hindu samaj” of Mewat will organise another Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra on August 28.
The previous one on July 31 was disrupted when communal violence broke out in Nuh. Since then, the outfits as well as the yatra’s main organiser, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, have been insistent on holding the yatra again before Shravan ends August 31.
No call to those outside Nuh to join yatra: VHP
Though no permission has been given, organisers are planning to hold the yatra — in its third year — on the usual route, likely beginning from Rajiv Chowk in Gurgaon and stopping at the Nalhar Shiv temple in Nuh before culminating at the Radha Krishna mandir in Nuh, a distance of over 20km. Declaring the yatra date at a news conference in Delhi on Saturday, the speakers said VHP would back it.
“The yatra has historical importance for us. Unfortunately, we could not complete it on July 31 because of the attack on our participants. But now, the Sarv Hindu Samaj of Mewat is determined to finish this holy journey with help from the VHP on August 28,” said Arun Zaildar of 52 Paals, which had organised the previous two mahapanchayats in Gurgaon’s Tigra village and Palwal.
Surendra Kumar Jain, joint secretary of VHP, said apart from the main yatra in Nuh, jalabhishek programmes would be held at Shiv temples in all blocks in the state at 11am on Monday. On Friday, VHP members had told TOI they would take steps to reduce the number of participants at the yatra, keeping the upcoming G20 summit in Delhi in mind.
At the news conference on Saturday, Jain said since the Hindu samaj of Mewat would be organising the August 28 yatra, no call was being given “to the entire Hindu society from outside to land up in Mewat”. “Our members have shown remarkable determination to renew the yatra. We will seek blessings so that our events are not disrupted in the future,” he said.
Zaildar went on to add that the yatra would set “an example of unity”. “We are hopeful of a peaceful and harmonious procession,” he said. While on July 31, about 15,000 people had attended the procession, no more than 1,000 will be allowed on Monday, a VHP member had earlier told TOI.
The Haryana government suspended internet in Nuh again on Friday. On Saturday, it enforced restrictions on gatherings under Section 144 of the CrPC.
