    Khaps can't ask women not to carry mobiles or dress in a particular way: Supreme Court


    By Dhananjay Mahapatra

    NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court said on Monday that any order by Khap panchayats asking women not to carry mobiles or dress in a particular way is violative of law and is an offence.

    Appearing before a SC bench, top police officers from Uttar Pradesh and Haryana said that Khaps issue socially retrograde resolutions but were never directly involved in the honour killings.

    The apex court will hear the views of Khaps on March 5 before passing an order on a PIL seeking protection of young couples, who married inter-caste or within the same gotra, from the wrath of khaps.

    Khap panchayats in Uttar Pradesh on January 12 said they will oppose same-gotra marriages before the Supreme Court, which had sought their views following a plea to curb violence against couples at the behest of such caste councils.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
