Marriage is a social institution. He has the most important contribution to the establishment of a healthy and participative society. It is the festival of society. Without marriage, the imagination of the society will be shattered and the society will become an animal. Society is the result of thousands of years of relentless efforts, struggles, achievements, inventions, etc. of mankind. Marriage is necessary to move away from the jungle-philosophy. But today marriage is becoming a curse because even considering it a social institution, it remains religious-oriented.
Marriages take place on the basis of religion. Marriage will be in the manner of Sanatan Dhamra, Islam will be in the manner of religion, Christianity will be done. Usually, it will happen only by circling religion. Government marriages i.e. court marriages are very less, this can be said to be comfortable keeping in view the marital figures of our country.
Why should marriage be considered a religious festival? The religion of Islam supports polygamy, a man's multiple marriages, and makes divorce a man's best friend. It threatens the freedom and equality of women and they bear the injustice and tyranny of a man who is trapped in a lifetime of horrors. Similarly, dowry comes in the marriage of Hindu or Sanatan customs, due to which the position of the female side becomes very weak and the woman's life continues to sag.
The question arises why dowry? Marriage is a voluntary and demanding dream of life. How was the transaction in that? Why bargain in it? Why this shock to the matter of equality of women and men? Why this inequality in the name of religion?
Today there is a democratic system, a socialist society, then why are brutal atrocities on women? Dowry is breaking the backbone of society. Creating a state of hell in society. So that this society is no longer suitable for humans.
Today most of the attention of the person is concentrated. He gives more importance to money-making than co-living existence. The relationship between husband and wife. He also ignores them and wants that he can get a lot of money with his wife. For this reason, marriage today depends on negotiation. There is no meaning in the choice or dislike of the girl.
Today, brides are burning. It would be more appropriate to say that they are being burnt. Dowry is the main reason for this. How can a happy society be established when a person has embarked on such a heinous act. It can be easily estimated.
Marriage is a social institution and is concerned with life's most important festival. This is the most auspicious festival of man-life and he is proving to be a curse. The reason for this is that human heat is dying out and the traditions of harmony are steadily declining. The feeling of co-life is decreasing. Life has become wealthier. Consciousness has declined and root worship is taking place. Both the person and society are inadvertently going towards the abyss, even after realizing this truth, no one has time to pay attention to it.
Kill a wife due to dowry for her husband or his family, what can be the gruesome and malicious act of this? However, the government has enacted a law to stop dowry. He has enacted a law to stop smuggling. She is engaged in death to stop terrorism. How far he is getting success in it is another matter.
This question is not only about the government. If the government does everything then what will the society do? And then what would democracy mean. The question of dowry, what will be the role of civic duty and responsibility in a democracy, is directly related to the mental health of society. The society has more responsibility than the government.
If society does not fulfill its responsibility, then such problems will never end. For this, society should take initiative and fight this curse, everyone should fight hard and only then society can be liberated from this problem and the establishment of a healthy society can be possible.
