The Asian Age - - Edit -

The Supreme Court of In­dia holds that any in­ter­fer­ence by khap pan­chay­ats to scut­tle mar­riage be­tween two con­sent­ing adults is ab­so­lutely il­le­gal. This judg­ment must be ex­e­cuted to tackle hon­our killings, which is a threat to our na­tional unity. In the lec­ture, “Na­tion­al­ism in In­dia”, Tagore ex­plained why our na­tion­al­ism was want­ing, and said, “Have we an in­stance in the whole world where a peo­ple who are not al­lowed to min­gle their blood shed their blood for one another ex­cept by co­er­cion or for mer­ce­nary pur­poses?”
