The Attack of the Khaps

While this may make you wonder what the country has come to, there is a subtle political issue in it that each and everyone must deal with. So, instead of giving this article the same treatment you would give a bad SMS joke, try to rank it higher-up on th
Recently, BSP MP Rajpal Saini made a comment summing up his views on how housewives and young girls should not be given a mobile phone. If you don’t believe me, here are his exact words: “What I am saying is that students should not be given mobile phones. It is the age to study, and mobile phones are a distraction. Due to mobile phones, they lose their way and do not focus on their studies. Why do housewives and school going girls need mobiles? It encourages them to make futile small talk and get connected with people outside their homes.”
However, if that is not shocking enough you must listen to what the some Khaps have been saying through the year. Jitender Chhataar, a Khap leader, recently asserted that youngsters should stop having junk food because it increases their sex drive. Mr. Chhataar, could have easily gotten away with this if he had, instead of saying it increases sex drive, said it increases calories but no sex sells, so why talk about calories? Besides, I am convinced that on hearing this theory, more than half of the older gentlemen would have increased their junk food consumption as a remedy.
What did Mr. Chhataar mean by junk food? Well, he was talking about chowmein and momos. Going for the kill, he added that if junk food consumption stops, so will rapes. Still, Mr. Chhataar is not the worst; let me introduce you to Mr. Sube Singh. This Khap leader says that the marriageable age of women should be dropped to 16 years. Why? So that rapes don’t happen, and they can fulfill their sexual needs with their husbands. Despicable Him!
