Indore: 17-year-old shoots sister for marrying outside caste
INDORE: A pregnant woman was shot dead by her younger brother, a 17-year-old, in a village in Betma on Saturday afternoon for marrying a man outside her caste and against the wishes of her family. Now in police custody, he has told cops that he killed his sister because he could no longer take the taunts from community members.
The 21-year-old victim and her husband had met at a common workplace in Pithampur industrial area 11 months ago and decided to marry. Facing severe opposition in the family, she eloped and they married on August 23. "Her parents took her back by force and she had to live with them for four months. I went to court to get my wife back," he said. "After she came to my home, her brother threatened to kill her. We did not take it seriously," said the husband, numb with shock. Police have found that the teenager had bought a countrymade pistol and was looking for an opportunity.
On Saturday, her husband was away, visiting his uncle, when her brother barged in with a gun. "Two of our neighbours belong to the same community as my wife. They tipped off her brother that I am not at home," the husband said.
The pregnant woman was in her living room, speaking with her mother-in-law, when the juvenile burst in with a pistol, put it against her head and shot her.
The victim’s brother-in-law came running on hearing the gunshot but she had collapsed in a pool of blood and the shooter had fled. Neighbours helped take her to a local hospital from where she was shifted to Indore but was declared dead when she arrived at night.

These honour killings are purely result of old rotten culture. It is high time social activists run campaign to generate awareness about long term issues associated with intra-caste (within caste) marriages. From genetics perspective, future generations will be more healthy and intelligent if people opt for inter-caste marriage. Such marriages also help a lot in unifying cultures and diversity. Marrying across the region (North-South Indian or East-West Indian) where girl and boy speak different languages is best for children. It is scientifically proven that bilingual and trilingual (native) kids are more intelligent as their brain wiring is totally different from others. Inter-caste marriages are also great to curb social malpractice like dowry. In summary, promote inter-caste and inter-regional marriages.

India should be for Indians, irrespective religion, gender, caste, color, language etc. One India, one law for everyone.
No Government or private documentation should ask a person’s religion, caste etc. Reservation system based on religion, caste, language, gender and province should be removed and reservations should be only made for economically downtrodden people.
