Khap Gotra issues

More idiocy from the Khaps



Times of India



CHANDIGARH/HISAR: Hijras (eunuchs) are born when couples from the same gotra get married. This shocking statement came from some angry khap leaders when a scientist tried to tell them that gotras and blood relation were two different things and all members of a gotra cannot be brothers and sisters.



The outburst came on Tuesday during a one-of-a-kind workshop funded by Union ministry of women and child development at Chaudhary Charan Singh Haryana Agricultural University in Hisar to invite measures to stop honour killings in khapland.



Retired senior plant breeder of the university, Dr Mahavir Singh Narwal told leaders from a dozen-odd khaps, "How can two lakh members of a gotra be brothers and sisters? Only those born to the same parents can be called siblings. It is not necessary that there would be adverse impact of same gotra marriages."



On this khap leaders stood up and protested. Senior khap leader, Kuldeep Singh Dhanda went on stage and said, "If same gotra marriages have no impact why are hijras born? Why do we have genetic diseases?"



He even claimed that 90% of eunuchs are born in those communities or religions which don't believe in the gotra system. He also named minority communities and suggested that their numbers were dwindling because of marriages between people who have close blood relations.



"We have done informal surveys which have revealed that side-effects are visible in such communities," Dhanda said. "In fact, maximum sportspersons come from those areas which believe in the gotra system."



Targeting Narwal, Pratap Singh Dahiya of Dahiya khap said, "This scientist has done experiments on trees, but human body is different."



Vice-chancellor of the university, KS Khokar, said, "I have witnessed khap leaders taking decisions since my childhood. I have seen that khaps always take right decisions for the welfare of Haryana."
