Kumar had reportedly tweeted that Gurugram Police Commissioner had got a call from the Al Jazeera news channel and pressure is being created on her to act against Hindus.

He went on to claim that after getting the call, she came under so much pressure that she initiated a crackdown on the workers of Hindutva outfits.
The FIR comes days after communal clashes rocked Nuh and Gurugram districts on July 31, in an attempt to stop a VHP procession.
The violence prompted the government to clamp the curfew and suspend mobile internet services in Nuh, Palwal, Hodal, and Sohna.  (IANS)
