Haryana: Amid continuous violent attacks on Muslims in different parts of Haryana by Hindus, Monu Manesar’s Guru and Gau Raksha Dal Haryana President Acharya Yogendra Maharaj organized a massive anti-Muslim rally with slogans calling for violence against Muslims on Thursday in Jind area of Haryana.

They raised slogans: “Jab Mulle kate jayenge, Ram Ram Chilayenge (When Muslims would be ch0pped, they would cry Ram Ram).”

In the last many days, Muslims have seen brutal attacks by Hindu mobs in the state. Six Muslims including a mosque Imam, Moulana Saad, 19, were murdered by the Hindus, shops were vandalised and vehicles set on fire.

As Hindus issued open threats to Muslims to leave the state, residents of a slum cluster in Palra village of Gurugram’s Sector 70A, as per The Hindu, said majority of the families, most of them from parts of West Bengal, fled the area while the remaining live in fear with some spending the night in a wooded area even as the Gurugram police continue to deny any incident in the area.

In one recent attack on Muslims, motorcycle-borne assailants hurled Molotov cocktails at two mosques in Tauru in Haryana’s Nuh district last night.

No one was injured in the incidents that took place around 11:30pm on Wednesday night, PTI reported quoting police. While one of the mosques is located near Vijay Chowk, the other is near a police station. Both mosques suffered some damage.

Soon after information was received about the incidents, fire brigades were rushed to the two mosques and the fire was doused, police said.

A bangle shop in Palwal district’s Minar Gate market was also set on fire by unidentified assailants, they said.

Six people have died so far in the violence, 116 people have been arrested and 90 detained, according to the Haryana government.
