Chautala represents everything that’s wrong with Haryana. 50 years ago, it was a state that was ahead of most other Indian states in most parameters. It embraced Arya Samaj and when Sati was still practiced in Rajasthan, Haryana boasted of widow remarriages, female literacy, and ban on child marriages and dowry.
Look at it now! A state where birth of a girl was never a sad event, suddenly discovered ultrasound machines! Selling ancestral land gave sudden and easy money to farmers and all the evils associated with money walked in. I lived there for 10 years from mid 70s to mid 80s and found the Haryanvis simple, warm, and nice people, though a bit ‘unpolished’. Now Haryana represents everything that’s crude, gaudy, showy, uncultured, and uncouth.
To turn Haryana around, the first thing that needs to be done is ban the khap panchayats. They are totally illegal and have no place in democratic country.
Yes!! Marry them off before the men can stand on their two feets. Then, simply replace the problem of rape with other issues like female infanticide, abortions, poverty, child malnutrition etc. We need to examine why Northern India (Haryana, UP, Delhi) has the highest incidents of rapes. Culturally, the residents of Haryana are known to be uncouth, short-tempered and mentally illiterate. Chautala is an apt respresentation of Haryana's culture.
Khaps are just a mini-version of Taliban. Get them before they get you!! Sadly, we have a bunch of morons leading the country. There's hardly any hope on the horizon.
Marriage before puberty is the Haryanvi logic to prevent rape. What about widows who too might face similar onslaughts from the vultures and cannibals? Will Haryana advocate widow burning to prevent the crime against widows?
Chautala and his successor Hood may clarify their position. Why don't they advise castration of the mad dogs?
Haryana is now the Rape capital of India
