No Mobile Phones, if You are an Unmarried Girl

Call it scary, but village council of Muzaffarnagar has banned unmarried girls from using mobile phones. The council feels the move will prevent the girls from running away with their boyfriends.

"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”.

If you look at it, mobile phone is the most personal device/means of communication and Khap panchayats have a known way of running their villages like Hitler.
