NEW DELHI — Hindutva groups from Hisar in Haryana have given Muslims a two-day ultimatum to leave their homes, outspoken journalist Rana Ayub tweeted and said the Hindus chanted loud slogans “Jab Mulle kaate jaayenge, hum Ram naam chillayenge” (When Muslims will be slaughtered, we will cry Ram, Ram).

“Well-meaning friends will ask “but how is Modi responsible for this?” Well-Meaning,” she tweeted.

In the wake of large-scale anti-Muslim violence that rocked the state on August 1, hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrant workers have been forced to flee several areas in Nuh district.

Hindutva fundamentalists issued threats to migrants with violence unless they left the area.

As curfew in Nuh has limited the options for the workers to leave, several of them were seen travelling with small bags towards either Alwar or Sohna in an effort to flee the violence-hit district, a Times of India report said.

Riot police were patrolling Nuh, Gurugram, Faridabad and Palwal.

The unrest began Monday when mobs allegedly hurled stones at a Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) rally wherein participants only carried light firearms, swords, trishuls, and lathis in the predominantly Muslim district of Nuh.

Arson and vandalism broke out the following evening in parts of nearby Gurugram, a satellite city of the capital and a key business centre where Nokia, Samsung and other multinationals have their Indian headquarters.

One neighbourhood saw a mob of around 200 people armed with sticks and stones loot several meat shops and set fire to a restaurant while chanting Hindu religious slogans.
