The last couple of weeks has been really hard on women. First incest rapes in Bangalore and Delhi. Then molestation in Guwahati and in the middle of all this some shocking diktats from a Khap Panchayat in UP where they have banned women from going out and use cell phones.

Women in India are subjected to atrocities even before they are born. Infant girls are killed in their mother’s womb itself. Sometimes she is killed after her birth. Even if she manages to survive female infanticide and female foeticide she is still in danger of being abandoned by her parents.

    Our very own Taliban ?

    Why worry about foreign-based Taliban ?
    We have our very own – in the form of Khap Panchayats ( self-declared village bodies ) to worry about

    Proof :

    A few days back , Khap Panchayat of Asara village ( Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh ) , issued following “ diktat “ :

     Women below the age of 40 shall not use mobiles

     Women will cover their heads whenever they leave home

     Women shall not opt for a love marriage

    But what good is a “ diktat “ without laying down punishment for “ diktat breakers “ ?

    Punishment :

     Ex-communication from the village

    Apparently , Asara village Khap belongs to the moderate Taliban
    In similar cases of violation of their diktats , other Khaps have supervised the public killing of the lovers !
    And these are the Khaps which will not hesitate to build a temple of Durga Mata to “ honor “ the Motherhood !

    Ultimate Irony :

    Response of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav ( a Master’s Degree holder in Environment Engineering from Australia ) : “ If this is what Khap decided , then it must be in the interest of the villagers “

    With regards
