Q. "Aamir Khan's television programme, Satyamev Jayate, has unquestionably raised awareness of social ills in the public. But some of those who appeared on it have paid a price. We were proud of Abdul for speaking against honour killings and thought the khap panchayat would back down after the show. But it had the opposite effect. The khap panchayat members thought that Abdul had defamed them by appearing on the show," Do you think Khap monopoly can be checked by Law / Awareness or GOVERNANCE??
Sharmila Bose:  A. Khap needs alternate system, till then it can't be discarded. more
