Gurugram: The district administration has refused permission for the ‘Brij Mandal Jalabhisheka’ yatra planned to be held by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on August 28 in communal violence-hit Nuh, the police said.
On Tuesday evening, the Nuh district administration rejected the request submitted by the organizers seeking permission for the yatra.
The organization, organized by the ‘Mahapanchayat’ at Palwal’s Pondri village on August 13, was planning to conduct a yatra at the Nalhar temple in Nuh district.
Nuh SP Narender confirmed that the request submitted by VHP seeking permission for the yatra was rejected.
Commenting on this, local VHP leader Devender Singh said he was not aware of the denial of permission. Also, he said that no permission is needed to conduct the yatra.
It was decided in the ‘Mahapanchayat’ that the Yatra would start from Nalwar Temple in Nuh and proceed through Zir and Sringar Temple in Jirka town of Ferozepur.
A communal clash erupted when a mob attacked the VHP on July 31 during a rally in Nuh. It also extended to Gurugram and surrounding areas. A total of six people, including two Home Guards and a Muslim cleric, were killed in this riot.
