Deoband: In order to eradicate the social evils like dowry system and ‘mrityu-bhoj’ from the society, Sakhan Khurd village Panchayat of Deoband Mandal in Uttar Pradesh has banned such traditions.

In this connection advocate Subhash Chand Tyagi, who is also the patron of Tyagi Jagran Manch, said that representatives from 30 villages in the Panchayat have unanimously decided that if a person takes dowry, one-fourth amount will be recovered from him.

Tyagi further said that nobody from the society would visit the person’s house if he organises the mrityu-bhoj. Instead, the people will take part in rasmapagari ceremony, said Tyagi.
