    I am no advocate of mutilation as punishment, however, it would be a good example for others if both the hands of this Rajendar alias Pappu were amputated.

    Loan repaid with interest.

    On second counts, I think life term in solitary confinement is something he deserves.

    A most disgusting thing to have happened.

    Haryana, is it?

    Another hell hole!

    I am sure had it been a Muslim, then it would have been worse.

    BTW what is this High Caste?

    Brahmins did it?

    Others including Jats are classified as Backwards (OBC).

    Yaa ,its was an " upper caste " OBC Jatt .:lol: .I know most would have thought its either a Brahmin or Kshtriya .


    BTW FYI the Jatav (chamar) dalits ,the dalit caste Mayawati belong to ,don't eat or marry into the the Balmiki dadits where are considers a lower caste than the Jatav dalits. This is real truth of caste situation in our country where "upper caste" dalits treat "lower caste" dalits as untouchables.

    The fact that this happens in 2012 is shame, serious action must be taken to ensure justice is highlighted and an example is set.

    In Jatland, this is all too common; and media-men shamelessly report such incidents as - Higher Caste atrocities, when in majority of the cases it is the land owning OBCs (Jats, Gurjars, Yadavs, Kurmis etc) and upper class dalits/backwards who are responsible for the stringent caste system and atrocities in India and not landless poor Brahmins. The Brahmins have been the target of Imperialists, then Evangelists and now leftists/secularists due to known reasons!

    Typical media manipulation. This incident involves two comparatively lower caste people. It appears that upper caste folks, especially Brahmins are the favorite whipping boy for every self-confessed bleeding heart liberal. Add the word "upper caste", and people will start cursing Hinduism and by default " EVIL BRAHMINS"!!
