“Haryana on high alert with schools, colleges, and banks closed for Nuh Shobha Yatra; top points.”

The Haryana government has suspended mobile internet services from August 26 to August 28. The state of Haryana is currently under high alert due to security concerns surrounding a planned ‘Shobha Yatra’ event in the Nuh district. Despite Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar denying permission for the procession, the Sarv Jatiya Hindu Mahapanchayat had called for it, leading to increased security measures. This decision comes following communal clashes that occurred in the district last month.

To maintain law and order, the district administration implemented Section 144, urging the public to avoid movement within Nuh. Educational institutions, including schools and colleges, as well as banks in the district, will remain closed during this time. The Nuh sub-divisional magistrate, Ashwini Kumar, confirmed these closures.

Key Updates on Nuh Shobha Yatra:

1.The Sarv Jatiya Hindu Mahapanchayat decided to restart the Brij Mandal Shobha Yatra on August 28 in Nuh. This yatra had been disrupted due to violence in July. Chief Minister Khattar did not grant permission for the procession, citing the need to uphold law and order.

2.Despite lacking permission, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) announced their intention to peacefully organize the Braj Mandal Shoba Yatra. VHP leader Alok Kumar expressed confidence that law and order would not be an issue.

3.The VHP leader mentioned that the yatra would be shortened due to the upcoming G20 Summit, but it would still proceed peacefully. He emphasized that the government’s role is to ensure peaceful and safe conduct of religious events.

4.Authorities deployed a significant security presence, including 1,900 Haryana Police personnel and 24 paramilitary force companies in Nuh. Entry points to the district were sealed, and access to the Malhar temple was restricted. However, traffic on the KMP Expressway and Delhi-Mumbai Expressway remained unaffected.

5.Mobile internet services in the state were suspended from August 26 to August 28 as a precautionary measure.

6.Ahead of the yatra, Nuh’s deputy commissioner and Superintendent of Police held meetings with peace committees. Police chief Kapur convened a meeting with senior officers from neighboring states to ensure coordinated efforts to manage potential situations.

Communal violence erupted in Nuh district on July 31 during a VHP-led religious procession. The procession was attacked, leading to clashes and destruction of property, including private and police vehicles. The violence spread to Gurugram as well. The conflict allegedly began after an objectionable video circulated by Bajrang Dal activist Monu Manesar and his associates, who were expected to join the procession. The clashes resulted in fatalities and disruptions in the region.
