In light of the recent communal clashes in Haryana's Nuh, panchayats of as many as fifty Haryana villages have approached the police and administration, informing them about their decision to boycott members of the Muslim community.

The similarly worded letters came after the communal violence that started on July 31 in the BJP-ruled state.

As per media reports, the villages from districts including Mahendragarh, Jhajjar and Rewari unitedly wrote to the police and district administrations.

These villages were primarily hit by the communal clashes that erupted on July 31 after a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) religious procession was attacked and led to loss of six lives accompanied by significant damage to property.

In their letters, the Hindu communities of the villages have also strongly voiced their decision to not rent out houses and shops to people from the Muslim community after the communal clashes.

Moreover, the villagers are also scrutinizing the identification proof of street vendors before allowing them entry into the villages.

According to Brahm Yadav, the outgoing councillor of the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG), Aadhar Cards and other valid identity proofs of the tenants should be thoroughly checked letting out properties. Yadav further said that "Valmiki people" should operate meat shops in the district and called for a boycott of shops run by Muslims.

“The violence that broke out in Nuh on July 31 was due to the Muslim community. They should not be given any house or room for rent in the area. In fact, our Valmiki people should be allowed to run meat shops in the district and we should all boycott the shops run by Muslims,” he said.
