A question about dowry-related tortureWe regularly get the news of dowry-related death. We get to know many cases of dowry-related torture and violence. In some cases, the complaints are correct. In some cases, the complaints are false. But let us forget about the false cases for the time being. Let us take the real complaints where dowry-related torture takes place.
We also get the the information that the groom's mother, sister(s) and other female relatives in dowry-related cases are the main culprits. Police arrests the female relatives of the groom on account of torture. In fact, more females are arrested for such torture.
Why do the women commit such gruesome acts of violence on another woman? Don't they feel pain? Don't they realise the pain of another woman? Why doesn't any other woman in the groom's place stand in support of the bride? Why do the female neighbours maintain silence? Isn't there any solidarity among women?
