Gurugram: Fringe groups say will force meat shops to close
GURUGRAM: A collective of rightwing Hindu groups has said it will deploy people to force the shutting of meat shops across Gurugram for the Navratri period beginning from Wednesday, triggering concerns among people who run the butcher trade, several of whom are Muslims.

The Sanyukt Hindu Sangharsh Samiti (SHSS) Gurugram, which represents 22 Hindu groups such as the Shiv Sena, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, and the Hindu Sena, sent a letter to deputy commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh declaring that they will force shops to close. “If any shop opens during Navratri we would close it ourselves. If any case happens due to it, we will take care of it,” said Gautam Saini, Shiv Sena district head. According to him, a team of 500 people had been formed to fan out across the city.

On Tuesday, meat shops at a market near Sadar Bazar put up curtains on the direction of some of the Hindu groups. At one place, people hung a poster in Hindi saying, “Best wishes for Navratri from the Muslim community”.

“We have put up curtains after they asked us to but despite this, now they have threatened us to shut shops during Navratri,” said Tahir Qureshi, the leader of the market. He and others approached police, which increased patrolling but was yet to make any additional deployment till late evening. Sumit Kuhar, DCP (crime), said the police will not allow anyone to forcibly shut any shop
