Riots not restricted to Haryana[edit]

Clearly these are not just Haryana riots as Punjab also saw riots as well as New Delhi. It may spread elsewhere as well. So Haryana Riots is not accurate and needs to be reconsidered for a more precise and inclusive article title. werldwayd (talk) 13:35, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

How about 2017 Northern India riots? --Ugly Ketchup (talk) 17:22, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

Bullets vs pellet use[edit]

Why is use of bullets vs pellet not deemed important for mention in article? It has been covered in National Newspapers like timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/chandigarh/panchkula-war-like-situation-had-to-be-dealt-with-like-that-hc/articleshow/60284806.cms and www.tribuneindia.com/news/haryana/hc-if-indulging-in-nonsense-have-to-be-shot/458520.html

Haryana police hesitated to shoot Jat rioters in Jat reservation agitation but they freely used bullets to kill 38 low caste Dera rioters. You can see on YouTube video Wy0KzfdXxyM how a Dera supporter was shot dead by police for throwing just one stone at them. So lawyers brought this as matter of use of excessive force by police. Even if high court rejected their demand it is an important matter. So please let 2 sentences on this remain in article. Thanks. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.69.142.96 (talk) 16:13, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
