Home Minister Anil Vij stated, “Social media has played an important role in the Nuh incident, therefore, I’ve constituted a three-member committee. The committee will scan every social media platform (for posts) from 21st July to 31st July. If anyone has posted anything provocative, action will be taken against them as per law…”

The Nuh clashes erupted on Monday afternoon when a religious procession passing through the district was attacked, resulting in the deaths of two home guards and injuries to dozens of people, including around 20 policemen.

Following the incident, Chief Minister ML Khattar assured the public that justice would be served for the victims and their families. He made it clear that no action would be taken against innocent individuals.

In response to the tense situation in Haryana’s Nuh, Faridabad, and Palwal districts, as well as in three sub-divisions of Gurugram, strict and decisive action will be taken against anyone found guilty of involvement in the violence.

In an effort to curb the spread of misinformation and rumors through social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, etc., the Home Secretary of Haryana issued an order to suspend mobile internet services. This measure aims to prevent the facilitation and mobilization of agitators and demonstrators who could engage in violent activities like arson and vandalism, leading to serious loss of life and damage to public and private properties.
