Milkman Shoots Wife Dead for Not Giving Him a Car in #Dowry

January 14, 2013

Lucknow, Dec 28, 2012

Dowry today has become the number one form of criminal extortion and violence against women in India today! It is viewed as the ‘jack-pot’ or the ‘unlimited wishing well’ that a man can use, to get all the material acquisitions he wants without working for it himself! He just has to threaten, and torture his wife, and her parents will pay up! If they don’t, he can kill her, knowing that there is hardly any scope of prosecution by the police and courts! We also need to ask why parents pay up so much wealth, even in poorer communities, to people who are abusing their daughter and could end up killing her?

Kamal Kishore, who is a milk man in the Malihabad area, killed his 26-year-old wife Jahnvi around 3am on Wednesday.  He shot her at a close range killing her on the spot.   Six months prior to this, Jahnvi’s father who is a farmer had to sell a portion of his land, to give Kamal the Rs. 2 lakhs (U.S. $4000.00) he had demanded of her in more dowry.  Jahnvi’s father says that his daughter was being tortured and that’s why he did that.  However, after that Kamal wanted a car.  When he didn’t get the car he desired, he shot Jahnvi dead!  Full report here

    why do ppl give a dowry to these buggers? if someone is coming for the dowry, why the hell we go for that man? if u think, we can’t change, then we will never, dont give a dowry to jerk and don’t sell ur daughter. dowry is not for the man, actually it’s for that woman to live a good life. we, ppl should come out of stupid frames and should be strong to change these.
