Indians Abroad Marry Women in India for Massive Dowries

December 5, 2012

Surat, Gujurat, Nov 20, 2012

This is how the Indian dowry system works.  The more educated and better paying job a man has, the bigger the dowry he demands from the bride’s family.  If he lives and works abroad, then he is entitled to an even bigger dowry!

A lot of Indian women who are married to Indian men living abroad, suffer the same forms of harassment, violence and sometimes murder as women living in India.

Higum Hussain who lives in the Mauritius, had come to India to marry Zahida Bibi.  After the wedding, he demanded a dowry of Rs 25 lakhs (U.S. $50,000.00).  When his demand was not met he beat up Zahida and her brother, and escaped to Mauritius.   Zahida is lucky.  There are many such cases, where the men take the money, and escape, or continue to violently abuse the woman they marry and take back to their country of residence, demanding more dowry.  Full post here

    ofcourse wealthy people are safeguarded by law enforcement agencies in my motherland and this is only the root cause of our backwardness in any aspect or fields.They were never punished for the crimes they have done on humanity and for amassing wealth by all sorts of illegal means.Definitely this situation is enforcing the honest,punctual,sincere lay man to opt for other ways to get justice because they do not get actual what they deserve against there srvices,acts and deeds.Jay ho MAA
