It was really sad that coward Talibans killed unarmed Bengali writer Sushmita Bnerjee in Afgnishtan, but in our own country these Panchayats are regularly giving verdicts for honour killings, rape and inhuman verdicts like these. They are no superior than cruel Talibans and must be punished strictly as examples.
