Whole social life is surrounded by and revolves around all these traditional beliefs and values. The source of all this is developed over a time and influenced slowly and slowly and socially these things were approved by the society.
States, bordering the National Capital, where the regional or cast panchayats give death penalty for the youth who loves a girl irrespective of caste, Subcast (Gotra) creed, religion, family background. The worst part is knowingly the police acts as a mere spectator and they don’t even register the case and if by chance the case is registered no proper action is taken in lieu of the excessive social pressure. In the history of Indian democracy no law is there to take action against the regional or cast panchayats who pass such judgments and are not taken to task in lieu of social pressure. It is because of this reason the regional and caste panchayats are so harsh that they give death penalty straight away irrespective of what the circumstances are. The caste panchayats are in themselves special court of law like the khap panchayat (Federal clan council of the Jats and other kindred people of Upper Doab, Haryana and neighboring areas) as known by the name. It hears matters relating to12 to 14 villages and various matters and problems relating to them. It is mentioned in there history that there way of approaching and handling the things is not only in humane but it is against the laws because whenever they sit in a group they are more powerful than the police and the court of law. The youth and women even older women are the maximum victims of these panchayats. Due to all these glaring facts the opposition of people has not been seen. It is due to the reason that a responsible citizen of the society has tried his level best to hide the actual facts.
We are working for prevention of ‘honor killings’ in Patiala (Punjab), Jind, Sonepat & Kurukshetra in Haryana, Muzaffarnagar and Merath in Uttar Pradesh.
We believe that honor killing is the menace produced out of socio-economic, cultural and Political factors and which has got approval from the social morality. And remedy to the problem is also based on the above four pillars. Under preventive programme, our organization is exploring the civic sense by underlining the Panchayats and Social Pressure Groups. Our goal is to create civic sensitivity against the menace. It is a male dominated society where every year thousands of lives are sacrificed irrespective of caste, subcast (Gotras), creed, religion, or the social status of the family. People kill their own clan or kin for their false “Pride” and “honour”. It has become a grave yard due to all these killings. In all these the castes who consider themselves regional or very faithful are Jat, Tyagi, Rajput, and Gujjars. For the past one decade they are going through a phase of Cultural duality. There traditional value system is such that determine their eating habits, Sex and marriages rules etc. Same is the case with dalits and backward caste people.
