    NEW DELHI: A village council in western India has banned girls from using personal mobile phones to stop them from contacting boys whenever they wish, media reports said on Thursday.



    The council or “panchayat” in the Dausa district of Rajasthan state also insisted that girls stop wearing scarves because that helped them hide their identities, the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency said.



    “Girls using mobile phones are easily connected and approachable and this freedom may create unnecessary problems for her family,” village elder Durga Lal was quoted as saying.



    “Considering this fact, it was the common opinion in the meeting that girls should be prohibited from using personal mobile phones and also scarves.” The restrictions were imposed after a girl eloped with her boyfriend from another caste last week.



    Local police superintendent S. N. Khinchi told PTI that nobody had complained so far against the decisions of the council.



    Panchayats often comprise an unelected group of elders, who are seen as the social and moral arbiters of village life.



    Although their rulings carry no legal weight, they can be highly influential and have been blamed for numerous abuses, such as sanctioning “honour killings” of women whose actions are deemed to have brought shame on their family

    Well the difference between pakistan and india is that these things rarely happen in urban or semi-urban areas. Villages are traditional and they partially live in the 19th century so these things are bound to happen. Whereas in pakistan's case the taliban and mullahs can do a lot of hoobla with their ak-47 to enforce their stupid 'fatwas' even in urban areas

    LoL. This country and its 'new economy' run on mobiles, telephony and the internet.

    Unfortunately, to me this seems like a case of the village council holding the entire place to ransom. The zealotry with which Rajasthani patriarchs enforce their bigotry is legendary.

    You see only one side.And what do you mean by 'spoiled'.Earlier people used to say that schools spoil the young generation.Then they said that don't send the girls outside otherwise it will 'spoil' them and now this!
    It has no end......nothing spoils anyone its just the old generation perception that everything new is bad!

    Dausa is a tribal belt. Plenty of Meenas and some Gurjars too.
    Some elements in Rajasthan do prefer to resemble their Haryanvi ideological cousins.
    This after India sent a Satellite to Moon :tsk:

    Nope: Legally. Yes: Actually.

    I'll make a sweeping statement that some might actually condemn. Panchayats in the North and north west, unlike in the rest of the country, are juridicial, a de facto law unto themselves that don't often play out to their precincts' advantage.
