Scope of Honor Killing as a distinct offence- An Analysis

Anil Balhera

Abstract


A democratic state like India, banks on the smooth functioning of the three origins of State that is, the legislature, the judiciary and the executive. The three organs of the state work in tandem according to the principles of natural justice and rule of law. Kangaroo courts be in the forum of Khap Panchayats or Shailshi Adalat, which are without any doubt extremely influential in the areas they exist, by their bizarre diktats which seemingly possess a lot of social sanction and approval of the masses, question the effectiveness of the state with brazen impudence. So strong is the influence of these Panchayats and quasi judicial bodies among villagers and sometimes even among educated class (Retired govt senior officers also) alike that the state machinery most of the times fails to respond timely to their unfair dikats which are nothing but pure mockery of rules of natural justice. Be it the ordering of gang-rape of women for having an affair with a man of higher caste or the banning of mobile phone use by young girls, the impact of diktats of Kangroo Court is profound on the geographical areas where they exist.
