Honor Killing In The Twenty First Century -- A Shame
Honor Killing -- The term itself is wrong. How can a human being kill someone for his honor? This is sheer frustration which is transformed into false mannerisms of these people.
We are trying hard to make India a developed nation but Can We?
Not By Any Chance If We Continue To Tread On This Path.
We would just be reverting back to the barbarian era. It is a matter of shame for the society that even in the Twenty First Century, people are following the so - called 'Khap Panchayats' and not our Constitution. How can few self - acclaimed and self - centrist heads of these 'Panchayats' declare the brutal sentence for two adult individuals capable of taking their lives' own decisions without interfering in anybody else's life? Moreover, what do they get by killing two innocent souls --- Ego Satisfaction! I wonder how the family can detach themselves from their offsprings so heartlessly! What is more important for them -- their child's happiness or their pride as per the societal norms?
Every individual has a right to live his/her life on their own terms unless this harms anyone. Hence the enlightenment of the deep psyche of these brutal beasts is the urgent need of the hour. The need of the hour is to urge ourselves to Ring The Bell of our hearts, minds and souls...
