Love Marriage banned in UP Village

A Taliban-like ruling was given by a village Panchayat in Uttar Pradesh banning love marriages and barring young girls from using mobile phones in the village. The most shocking thing is the village comes under Baghpat, which is the constituency of Union Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh. The village panchayat also banned women, who are under the age of 40, from going out for shopping. As per the diktat, women would be veiled and their heads must be covered while going outside. The boys are also prevented from using headphones on roads. While giving the ruling, the Panchayat condemned the practice of dowry as a punishable offence. The directives were issued during a panchayat meeting on Wednesday. The diktats resemble the Taliban thoughts, which are condemned all over the world. Police said that they have ordered an inquiry into the matter and action would be taken on the basis of the report given by the district intelligence unit.
