Attack On Couples By Khap Panchayat illegal Says Supreme Court

"If an adult man and woman marry, no khap, panchayat, individual or society can question them," said the Supreme Court.

On Tuesday the Supreme Court termed as “absolutely illegal” to punish or harassment done by the Khap panchayats or associations. Khap is a social-administrative system, operated by five or more villages. They are not legal recognition but they enforce their law on the peoples in the name of society. Supreme Court also said to ban the Khap panchayats or associations and an adult boy and girl can marry by on his choice. There is no right to Panchayat, Khap Panchayat, Parents, Society or any other person, to interfere in adult’s marriage. If government do not ban the Khaps, the court themselves take action on them.

Chandrachud in response by amicus curiae (friend of the court) Raju Ramachandran on ways to prevent harassment and killing of young couples in the name of family honor for marrying inter-caste.

The Supreme Court clearly said that any attack or social boycott done by Khap Panchayat is absolutely illegal. They have no right anymore to issue punishment for marrying an adult boy or girl on their own wish.
