You can go on doubting about my being from a family of lawyers….you could even believe I come from a family of tea sellers…doesnt change a thing about me!
About equal crime….NO-it is not!!…Dowry asking is NOT done in the cutest way by inlaws..and generally some level of abuse and domestic violence(verbal / economic abuse is a form of domestic violence too!!) is involved…You can’t convict the girls father of harassment or domestic abuse just coz he has given dowry!!
I have seen MANY cases where women ARE beaten and battered too!!….wife beating is not an uncommon thing….infact I feel any man who beats his wife for whatever reason should be jailed…irrespective of dowry.
