Jaat Panchyaat!…


You must have read it many times in the newspaper that a man was beaten with stones tieing him to the tree or a woman made to remove her clothes and roam around the village. Such news shook us. We feel ashamed as a human when we come across such news at the start of the day.
In such incidents, questions arise in our mind that who made him/her do that? What was the reason? Why didn’t she protest? How humans can be so cruel?. These cruel punishments are dictated by Jaat panchayat. Many of you must be knowing what it is, few of you didn’t know about it. So let me tell you. In the village and rural areas, people don’t follow government rules. They only follow the rules of their community(jaat). People of the community unanimously choose a team of certain people as panch. These panch make the judgements on any issue of the community. They don’t let any outsider peep in the judgements of the community. It would be completely okay if they would have given correct justice and punishments. But when we hear about the punishments they give, we feel disgusted. The families under guilt are hit with rocks and sticks. They don’t even spare women for such punishments. If someone of the community tries to oppose them, they simply throw them out of the community. So people are always in fear of getting thrown out of the community and bear all the injustice for the sake of society. These community judges even forget that they are punishing a human. They need to act human. They give punishments as they feel and nobody raises voice against them. They don’t even let police interfere in this. They put inhuman and toxic rules and everybody obeys them blindly. When they give judgements, they give it as per their convenience and personal agenda. People fear for their honour in society and fall prey to such injustice. In this mess, a family proven guilty has to suffer. They lose their present and beautiful future. This needs to stop, someday, somewhere!…
