A religious conglomerate in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district issued diktats barring women from going out alone in public while also terming co-education is 'un-Islamic'
Community leaders in Haryana have said that the diktat by Ahlawat Khap of Muzaffarnagar against the director of Miss Tanakpur Hazir Ho is not democratic.
In a horrific incident, a Panchayat in Bokaro is alleged to have ordered the rape of a 14-year-old Dalit girl.
The khap panchayats wield a lot of power and they just cannot be wished away. It is time for an innovative approach.
