Take The Anti-Dowry Pledge! Be Counted!
We urge all Indians (in India and abroad), as well as all non-Indians (who in whatever way connect with Indian communities), to take this pledge.
This pledge drive is an attempt to convince people to take individual responsibility in the fight against dowry, which is the cause of India’s female genocide.
So lets take the ‘GREED’ out of Indian weddings! Sign the pledge below and make your INDIVIDUAL ACTIONS COUNT!
THE “WAR ON DOWRY” PLEDGE:
1. I will not accept any dowry or extravagant wedding gifts (of a cumulative value of Rs.20,000/- or more) or favors (in cash or kind), even if these are offered to me or my family.
2. I will not give any dowry or wedding gifts that are demanded of me and my family, and I will sever contact with any family that makes such a demand and report them to the police.
3. I will not marry/ marry my daughters into a family that gives or takes dowry in any form.
4. I will not attend or support weddings where I am aware that dowry and/or extravagant gifts have been demanded and given.
