Even though we are living in the 21st century, it is heart-breaking how the practice of dowry is still so prevalent. It is quite disgusting how people still indulge in asking dowry even after the country made it a punishable offense. Though the culprit could be imprisoned for a minimum of three years for taking dowry, it doesn’t stop people from indulging in this regressive practice.
We hang our heads in shame that this practice is so prevalent across various family backgrounds.
In the country, where there is an increasing number of girls giving up their lives because of dowry harassment, we couldn’t resist ourselves from applauding the family members, who thrashed the groom for asking for dowry.
Recently, the video of a a groom being thrashed by the family members of the bride for allegedly demanding Rs 10 lakhs as dowry went viral. In the video, the groom could be seen being manhandled by several people, while a woman clings on to him. Have a look:
According to Times Now, the incident took place at a wedding banquet hall in the Sahibabad area of Ghaziabad. The groom’s father had allegedly demanded Rs 10 lakh as dowry and had further threatened to call off the wedding if the demand was not met.
As per the reports, the bride’s family had already given the groom Rs. 3 Lakhs cash and a diamond ring worth Rs 1 lakh. But still, they weren’t satisfied and demanded more. The bride’s family tried to persuade him but in vain. This angered the bride’s family who then went on to thrash him.
Many netizens came forward to celebrate the incident:
It was also alleged that the groom, who is a resident of Agra, had already married 2-3 times before. How can someone be so shameful? What do you think about how this groom was punished? Do let us know!
