Full of contradictions[edit]

This article seems to be full of contradictions, with one sentence contradicting the one previous to it. In one sentence it is said that in the Khap, the leader's word is law. And the next sentence says that the system is democratic. Another sentence says that it is customary for the younger folk to not offer suggestions, but sit and listen. And the sentence following it says that decision making happens in an open, democratic manner. Decide on something please.. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Fgpilot (talkcontribs) 07:19, 10 May 2010 (UTC)

In need of attention?[edit]

The contents of the section on "Historical Day" is what specifically caught my attention. While much of it is unsubstantiated, the coverage seems to be entirely unencyclopedic. Why was the day historical? 164.100.170.4 (talk)

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 23:51, 1 July 2013 (UTC)
