An Indian village council forbids girls to carry mobile phones before marriage

A village council in northern India has decided to ban the use of mobile phones for women before marriages lest they arrange marriages behind their fathers’ backs, which is often punished by death.

The Village Council decided instead that boys could use phones, but only under the supervision of their parents. The Board fears that young people could use phones to arrange elopement. Local associations in defense of women’s rights have denounced the ban as unfair and regressive.

Marriage between members of the same clan are forbidden by the Hindu custom in parts of northern India where marriages are traditionally arranged by parents. Last month, 34 couples have fled in the district of Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, police said.

“Three girls were beheaded by the male members of their family after they eloped” with boys from their same clan, said police assistant director general Brij Lal in the state capital of Lucknow.
