On the walls of a few shops in a slum in Gurugram, posters were put up on Sunday asking the Muslims to leave the place by Monday and warning them of facing consequences otherwise. 

A day before the much spoken about 'shobha yatra' called by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad in Nuh, these posters were witnessed.

According to a report by PTI, a complaint has been registered and the complainant is a tea shop owner named Mojed who said that he found a poster on the walls of his shop on Sunday morning.

Mojed alleged that the poster carried the names of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Bajrang Dal and asked all Muslims to vacate leave by Monday or be "responsible for their death". 

The PTI report also said that the complainant suspected that an individual named Asif might be behind this trying to threaten him and "incite violence" in the area.

The VHP, meanwhile, denied any connection with the posters and demanded action against those trying to defame it. 

In his complaint, Mojed, a native of West Bengal who currently resides in the slum area opposite Tulip white society in Sector 69, said he found the poster on the wall of his tea shop on Sunday morning.

He, however, said he suspected that Asif pamphlet with the names of VHP and Bajrang Dal on it. He reportedly said, “Asif runs a scrap shop in sector 69. He had threatened me three to four days ago and also abused me with casteist remarks."

Reportedly an FIR was registered under sections 294 (abusing), 188 (disobedience of an order duly promulgated by a public servant), 295A (Deliberate and malicious acts, intended to outrage religious feelings of any class), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), 506 (criminal intimidation) on Sunday based on Mojed's complaint.
