Quote:Dowry demands often continue for years after the wedding. Each year, thousands of young Indian women are doused with gasoline and burned to death because the groom or his family felt the dowry was inadequate.

Oh my god, this is soo pinned.

If this was a report from Afghanistan or Pakistan, I would have believed it out of hand, but I'm shocked that India would have this issue.

Not sure it's due to capitalism. No Western Country has this problem, that I know of. Certainly it is an issue regarding the value of a woman's life. Or lack there of.

There's absolutely no excuse for the horrendous ideas they have over there about what's ok or not. There's an Indian woman here in town I know who said where she came from, men thought it was perfectly acceptable for them to go in and rape a woman if the husband was away


I mean, REALLY... wtf damned.gif

For sure, I hope this gets world wide coverage, and induces change in India.
