Caste, Love & Honour Killings:

Religion or Vote Politics?


 Prof Bharat Gupt


Monday, 13 Sept 2010


                                               Gulmohar Hall 6:30 pm



Shri Ram Madhav


Recently honour killings under the guise of gotra  and caste demands have caused serious concern for

 freedom of the young to choose their partners.

Prof Bharat Gupt will refer to classical texts revealing the liberalism and diversity of ancient Indian society which can be an inspiration for modern solutions.

Shri Ram Madhav shall lead a discussion with the audience.

why single out caste for honour killings? as though love is all everything in this world, and that castes are against this nobly love.. dont we see a typical abrahamic train in this approach.. in the former, anything against bible is to be destroyed.. in the later, anything against love has to be destroyed.. but ofcourse, not able to dare to oppose religions, they are beating caste, where they wont get any retaliation..

Honour killing is something that is to be understood.. When parents chose to kill their son/daughter, and go to jail, dont we feel a need to understand the issue?

But we are painting those parents as criminals, which any way is wrong portraying..

Based on my discussion with him in hinducivilization group, he is clearly and unjustly biased against caste system..
