Pavan Dusa started this petition to Say No to dowry... Fight againt Dowry

In many parts of India, a bride's family pays a substantial sum in dowry to the groom's family to take on the burden of a bride". However, when the dowry in't enough, the groom's family demands additional gifts. If these demands are not met, the bride is often subject to domestic violence and even killed on the part of the husband and his family. Although the Indian Government cacted the Dowry Prohibition Act in 1961, as many as 11,000 to 15,000 Indian women are still murdered for their dowries each year.
