Khap Panchayat - The Indian Taliban (Episode 163, 164 on 6th, 7th Oct 2012)



Kishan ram, son of Keval Ram (played by Sanjeev Tyagi) got married to Asmita during their childhood when Asmita was 12 year and Kishan was 14 years old. Years pass, Kishan gets a job as a teacher in Jodhpur and now he is doing BEd. (Bachelor of Education).

During this whole time period, he spent in Jodhpur he realizes that he went through an illegal and very old tradition of India which is known as Child Marriage or Baal Vivah. And he is now aware of this that according to the Indian constitution Child Marriage is illegal and any of the boy or girl does not want to stay with each other then they can withdraw this marriage when they turn 18 years old.

Kishan explains to Keval that he doesn't want to accept this marriage and he wants to leave Asmita. Keval ram supports him. Lala ram is the father of Asmita and he knocks the door of Panchayat which is known as Khaap panchayat.

Khaap panchayat is a self-organized panchayat system and also knows as the "Indian Taliban". They can take any action against the victim. Their decisions are very hard like-

  • girls can not wear jeans
  • girls can not use the mobile phone
  • they are brutally against inter-caste marriage
  • female can not join their panchayat
  • Dalit either are not allowed in the panchayat or they can not put their point there.
These 2 episodes of Keval ram and Kishan ram explains the cruel behavior of Khap in a village.
