Not Yet Married, Female Banned With Handphone
Thursday, November 25, 2010 // back to top?
A village in south India, Lank, prohibits unmarried women who use mobile phones or HP. The reason, it is feared they were planning a forbidden marriage might lead to the death penalty.
In some areas in northern India, marriages between members of the same clan is forbidden. Marriage is usually arranged by parents, aka matchmaking.
In fact, in some villages are still conservative, ordinary families applying extreme punishment, including 'honor killings', for those who violate taboos. In some cases, even the village council ordered that penalty, although the practice is often hindered by the police.
The growing technology also makes the elders of the village Lank fear. Fearing a cell phone to unite the two lovebirds in a forbidden relationship.
However, this prohibition does not apply to young singles. They may use mobile phones while in parental supervision.
This decision was instantly challenged by female activists. They said it was unfair and outdated.
What actually happened there?
Lucknow police official, Gen. Brij Lal had an explanation. She told him, months ago, there were 34 couples eloped in District Muzaffarnagar, Uttar Pradesh, where the village Lank included. Among them, eight of whom were killed. Only within a month.
"Three girls beheaded by male members of their own families. Because of garanya they eloped with boys of the same clan," said Brij Lal, such as the Washington Times published the site, Thursday, November 25, 2010.
This is normal. Although traditional elders council decisions village called panchayats are not legally binding on India, but was seen as the will of local communities.

Ban cell phone use for single women is part of a broader effort to deter intraklan marriage among the 3 million population Pradesh.
According to the customary council member, Satish Tyagi, a decision that binds the 50,000 panchayats Lank Village residents are being considered for application in other villages. "Because, phones proven to help the young couple eloped," she said.
