While we end up reading stories (almost every week) about women killing and being tortured in the name of dowry, there are brands and organizations like METRO Cash & Carry Pakistan inviting people to opt for it by offering promo offers and discounts to sell electronic goods as they know an average Pakistani mindset is all about giving daughters tons of stuff in the name of dowry. While we do have politicians and senators raising their voices in parliament about putting a ban on forceful dowry, lets just not forget that we do live in a society where businesses and people live upon selling this ‘norm’ openly. Logon ko promo codes ka laalach aur discount pe shaadi aur shehnaiyyan jab becheinge toh kaise parents ke ooper se jehez ka bojh aur load kum hoga? Electronics ke items bechne hain toh shoq se bechein par ussko shadi aur shenaiyyon se connect na karein, at least uss mulk main jahan har saal 2,000 se zyada deaths hoti hain due to dowry-related issues and problems. Spotted today. More on Adcave.
