The village near Haridwar saw a communal aggression towards the Hindus. Sources say – A Muslim youth named Rizwan went to Saudi Arabia for work. He reportedly was employed in a company owned by the father of Bin Laden. While he was working there in Saudi Arabia, he started writing against Hindus on social media such as Facebook. In a post he wrote, “ Dear Muslims, first of all defeat Modi. Then we will be free to pick up their sisters and daughters from their homes and elope with them. No one will be able to stop us from then.”

He complained about Rizwan and his post. However, the police advised that since Rizwan is not in the country, no action can be taken against him. When Rizwan got to know the things somehow, he wrote more hate posts. On May 20, referred to one of his friends and wrote, “No one make a decision better than Allah. Someone has to sacrifice. Perhaps Allah has chosen me for this work.” His message was intended to do a harm to Jivendra Singh Tomer.
