Goodmorning, today I am going to share my views on the topic” dowry system”.
Dowry is basically the cash, jewellery, furniture, property and other tangible items given by the bride’s family to the bridegroom and his parents during the event of marriage and this system is called Dowry System. It has been prevalent in India since centuries.
Dowry is complete injustice with women and does not give women equal status in society. Because of dowry men will always be superior to women.
This is creating a mess and negative environment in society. Under the Dowry Prohibition Act, taking or giving dowry is a crime and illegal.
The Dowry system is good unless and until it is considered as a gift given to the bride by her parents. If the groom’s parents are demanding money to get married as a “Dowry” then that is completely wrong and illegal.
Thank you for patiently hearing.
