Now, a ban on mobile phones for unmarried girls
Muzaffarnagar: A village panchayat here
has banned the use of mobile phones by unmarried girls, a move
they feel would prevent them from eloping with their lovers.
The all caste and community panchayat met here at Lank
village of the district yesterday and discussed the "bad
effects" of mobile phones on youngsters and passed the order.
"The panchayat has imposed a ban on the usage of
mobile phones by unmarried girls to prevent them from eloping
with young boys against the wishes of their parents,"
panchayat spokesman Rajender Malick said.
Earlier on November 14, the all khap panchayats of
Shoram village in the district had come together to oppose
same gotra marriages, demanding an amendment in the Hindu
Marriage Act, 1955.
