dear anand... It's not just gender favored law...even it proves law is blind...
100% of 498a cases filed as dowry harassment ...once case registered they write laks of money kilos of gold we gave as dowry at the time of marriage..
but our blind law never arrest any girl or girls family for encaraging dowry system..
Girls party, police, lawyers, judges, women protection and human rights...ever punished ...any women family for giving dowry...they all know well.. Only a man who is getting ready for marriage is same like "BAKARA"
1.girls party immediately can refuse for giving dowry, and don't go for marriage ...but not.
2. police can file case for encaraging such nasty tradition and make publicity to suppress it...but not.
3. lawyers can stop taking cases..as they encaraged unacaptble tradition ..when they are in need ..but .now blaming male part....but not.
4.judges can give punishment and give message to society ....even if you give dowry, you Will punish go under punishment might happen rare..may be not happen.
they all love to suck common men blood and kill his carrier..and torch mentally physically .
its our beautiful india...and women welfare lady was giving statement..if men doesn't commit...let him prove in court..." That lady don't know the value of carrier" by the time he prove he lost all.
best example my friend and save indian family members... Many people while going through cases lost many carrier opportunities..
finally all all these people interest is " you did or not doesn't matter" loose carrier and life or " pay money and become yourself criminal.
may be my this message hurts many.. But truth knows you hearts ask it...
may a man taken dowry ... Without giving how he can take?
at the time of giving girls family not consulted any of the above I mentioned... But they are always there to support her...
Feel same on such injustices...
finally I am girl.. And if any ask dowry I won't give ..I am happy even I didn't get a husband .
atleast I feel happy to being away from injustice world
