'Honour killings will continue'


New Delhi, Jul 12: The Khap gram panchayat announced that they will continue 'honour killing' as their pride inspite of the fact that Indian government is going to produce a new law of banning the 'killing' in the name of 'honour'.

At a meeting in Muzaffarnagar, several village bodies from three states, voiced a defiant note and even supported killings in the name of family honour.

Chaudhary Karan Singh, a participant of the meeting said to CNN-IBN, "Khaps are like gods. They can do no wrong. If you are with us and continue to show us in good light nothing can go wrong."

The predominant demand of the Khaps is that the Hindu Marriage Act be amended to ban marriages within the same gotra or clan. Some even went as far as to demand a ban on love marriages.

"We will not compromise on traditions. We will either kill or get killed,"said Om Prakash Malik, a Khap member to CNN-IBN.

"No one can stop such deaths. Not the Government or the Supreme Court. Even the military can not stop it," said Choudhary Naresh Singh Tikait.

Though several actions had been taken against 'honour killing' but still the villagers want to stick with their age old tradition.
