    Denied feast, village elders force couple to divorce

    BAREILLY: A kangaroo court in Hardua Kifayatullah village under Nawabgunj block in Bareilly separated a newlywed couple after the bride's mother, a poor widow, failed to arrange a dawat-e-walima (feast) for gram panchayat members and villagers. While the girl's family is in shock and contemplating leaving the village, the police have been informed and are investigating the matter.

    Majida, who lives with her four children in Kifayatullah, recently visited her brother in Kolkata where the latter offered to get his son Taslim married to her daughter Sabina. Majida readily agreed and the marriage was solemnized in the presence of selected family members. However, when she returned back to her village, she was summoned by the panchayat which accused her of selling her daughter in Kolkata.

    The panchayat members told her to either arrange a feast for the entire village or present the couple before it. Not in a position to afford the feast, Majida called for her daughter and son-in-law from Kolkata. The couple was humiliated in front of the entire village and Taslim was forced to divorce Sabina. When Majida objected to this, she was asked to get her daughter married to a suitable boy from the village and forget about Taslim.

    Gram pradhan Ramvati Gangwar, who is currently not in the village, feigned ignorance about the incident but promised to take action against the culprits.

    Meanwhile, Nawabgunj circle officer Digambar Kushwaha said, "The matter has been brought to my notice and we would definitely take action against the accused after verifying facts."

    Unbelievable!

    What a way India moves on.

    These damned village councils should be prevented from taking any social actions. Corrupt baskets!

    The issue is, is India is in favour of keeping Kejriwal with his decadent ideas?

    Ramvati Gangwar doesn't seem to be a muslim name.

    I don't think the issue is Muslim.

    The issue is the decadent mindset prevailing in those parts - Hindu and Muslim.

    No, of course. But how was Omvati concerned, she being head of gram panchayat. Dawatee-walima marriage feast prevelent among muslims.


    But check this in #1. Parties involved are seculars, not Hi9ndus.

    Majida, who lives with her four children in Kifayatullah, recently visited her brother in Kolkata where the latter offered to get his son Taslim married to her daughter Sabina. Majida readily agreed and the marriage was solemnized in the presence of selected family members.

    India has too many khaos.

    It is time to change the mindset.
