    Re: Murdered Bride Part 2

    North Indian castes and especially the Jat caste have very strict marriage rules.
    1: The couple Cannot be from the same village. This is because all village members are considered to be brother and sisters.
    2: The boys father last name (sub clan), mothers premarriage name (sub clan) as well as the grandmothers premarriage name (sub clan) cannot overlap the girls father,mother and grandmothers last name (sub clan).
    All members with the same last name (clan name/got) are considered to be brother and sisters.

    The girl Jassi Sidhu was a Jatt Sikh. The guy she married as also a Jatt Sikh Sidhu. They were no closely related. However, this marriage broke the village and last name rules. Marrying people with the same last name is like marrying cousins or brother/sister. The punishment for doing this is usually death, like the girl was killed by her own relatives.

      In what country is that punishment legal? What if the guy and girl change their religion and then get married? Does the punishment still hold?

      Is this punishment by a sikh religous order or by a punjabi cultural order? I cannot believe it has to do anything with sikhism. I am pretty sure these are petty cultural rules.
