Bittu Bajrangi, a self-proclaimed cow vigilante known for his provocative views, has been arrested in connection with the Nuh violence in Haryana. 

This upheaval occurred during a Hindu group's parade. On August 1, a First Information Report (FIR) was filed against Bittu Bajrangi in response to the widespread distribution of a viral video in which he appeared dressed in saffron clothing, backed by a frightening background song.

Bittu Bajrangi had previously shared a slow-motion video clip of himself dressed in saffron while a music played with the lyrics, "Goli pe goli chalengi, baap toh baap rahega" (gunshots will be exchanged, the father will remain the father). 

Communal Unrest and Tragic Consequences

Bittu Bajrangi, who was part of the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) procession that was targeted in Nuh, addressed the viral footage in an interview with India Today, explaining that he was simply responding to those who had threatened him.

On July 31, a mob attempted to stop the VHP's 'Brij Mandal Jalabhishek Yatra' in Nuh, causing communal conflict. 

Stones were thrown and vehicles were set on fire, and the violence expanded into neighbouring Gurugram over the next few days. 

A Muslim preacher was tragically killed by Gurugram rioters, while restaurants were set on fire and stores were destroyed. Six people were killed in the violence.
