A ‘Mahapanchayat’ has been planned by Hindu group in Haryana’s Nuh after the violence in the area that left six people dead, however the venue has been changed from the area.
The gathering has been planned to discuss "completing" the Vishwa Hindu Parishad's religious march that was attacked last month in Nuh, triggering a communal riot, said NDTV report.
It added that the event was however shifted to Palwal, around 35 km away, after being denied permission from the police.
The event will now be held at the Palwal-Nuh border, it said.
“The mahapanchayat will now be held at Pondri village in Palwal district. The office of the Palwal Superintendent of Police confirmed the gathering has police permission,” the report said.
It said the event is being organised by Sarv Hindu Samaj.
During the event, the resumption of Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) procession will be discussed on August 28, it said.
It added the mahapanchayat will also demand the release of young people arrested in connection with communal clashes.
Earlier, the authorities had denied permission to Hindu outfits Bajrang Dal and the VHP for holding the Mahapanchayat in view of the law and order situation.
However, the report said the members of the two outfits will reportedly attend today's gathering.
A gathering was earlier held in Gurugram, despite being denied police permission, by the Hindu Samaj Mahapanchayat right after the violence, where they called for boycott of Muslim traders, the report mentioned.
“Several other communal speeches were made there as well,” it said.
The report said the police anticipated that today's gathering would perhaps add to the already existing tensions, which is why they did not give permission for it, as they are trying to restore peace in Nuh, it said.
The organisers of today's gathering shared posters on various social media platforms announcing the mahapanchayat, it added.
"The yatra is being organised to boost the confidence of Hindus," the report quoted the poster doing rounds on social media.
In an official statement, the Gurugram Police Friday requested the public to refrain from raising provocative slogans, making speeches, carrying banners or indulging in acts that may hurt the sentiments of any community and disturb the peace.
Several farmer unions and Khap panchayats have appealed for peace and demanded the arrest of cow vigilante Monu Manesar, whose alleged declaration of joining the July 31 procession triggered tension in the area.
A Bajrang Dal leader, Manesar is wanted for his alleged role in the killing of two Muslim men earlier this year.
