Schools, Colleges in Gurugram, Faridabad to Remain Closed Today Due to Violence in Nuh
As a precautionary response to the recent outbreak of violence in Nuh, Haryana, where a mob of rebels caused disturbances during a religious procession by pelting stones and setting cars ablaze, the state government has taken decisive action. On Monday night, the Haryana government announced the closure of all educational institutions, including schools, colleges, and coaching centers, in Gurugram and Faridabad on August 1.
The Gurugram District Magistrate's office issued a directive on Twitter, urging all educational institutions to strictly comply with the order, in an effort to prevent any untoward incidents. The message emphasized that safety and security were of utmost importance during this challenging time.
The violent confrontations in Nuh, which occurred during a religious parade organized by the Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad, resulted in the tragic deaths of two home guards and left over 200 others injured. The clashes involved the hurling of stones and the torching of numerous vehicles. Subsequently, mobile internet services were suspended in Nuh district until August 2, as the Haryana government aimed to thwart the spread of false information and disinformation on social media.
The two deceased individuals, Neeraj and Gursevak, were identified as employees of the Khedali Daula police station. The injured police officers involved in the Nuh conflict were promptly taken to Medanta Hospital in Gurugram for medical attention. The police reported that while the police units were marching from Gurugram to Mewat, they were attacked by a violent mob.
In response to the escalating communal tensions in Nuh, political figures, including Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar, from various backgrounds have appealed to the public to maintain peace and unity in the state. Khattar emphasized that the perpetrators of the clashes would face severe consequences for their actions.
The situation remains sensitive, and it is crucial for everyone involved to cooperate and uphold harmony to restore normalcy and prevent further violence.
