In the workshop organised by the Home Science College of Haryana Agricultural University on steps to check honour killings, the experts reached a conclusion that Hindu Marriage Act needs amendment to allow marriages in the same gotra. The university is sending its report to the union government in this regard.

The report of the university prepared on the basis of speakers' suggestions, including khap leaders, envisages that emphasis should be given on moral education. And in case a boy and a girl of the same gotra tie the nuptial knot, the parents and society should not apply a rigid approach.
