Schools, Colleges In Nuh Reopen Today After a Hiatus Of 10 Days
Following a 10-day hiatus, schools have reopened today in Haryana's Nuh district. The closure of educational institutions in this area was initiated on July 31 due to communal clashes. Additionally, the Haryana State Transport services will now resume full operations starting today. District Magistrate Dhirender Khadgata of Nuh stated, "Given the return to normalcy in the region, a decision has been made to resume all educational activities from August 11. Likewise, the bus services provided by Haryana State Transport will also resume full operation from August 11."
As part of the reopening process, curfew restrictions have been eased, and ATM services are now accessible within the relaxation zone. Authorities have also requested that Muslim clerics lead Friday prayers at homes. In a separate incident, on Thursday, individuals named Munfed and Saikul, who were allegedly involved in the Nuh violence, were apprehended in Silkho Village, Haryana. According to a police officer, the arrests followed a confrontation. The individuals were found in possession of a motorcycle and an illegal makeshift firearm ("katta").
The violence that erupted in the predominantly Muslim area of Nuh on July 31 stemmed from an incident where a Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) procession, known as the Braj Mandal Yatra, was confronted by a hostile crowd. This unfortunate event resulted in the loss of six lives, including two home guards and a cleric. Isolated incidents of violence were also reported in Gurugram.
A significant "mahapanchayat" took place on Wednesday in the Baas hamlet of the Hisar district. During this gathering, organized by the Bhartiya Kisan Mazdoor Union, representatives from diverse faiths, farmers, and community groups discussed strategies for fostering stronger connections across communities. Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, and members of various other religions joined forces to contribute towards restoring peace in the Mewat region, as outlined in a resolution adopted during the conference.
