Shivamogga: Blackmailing for dowry with nude video - Lady files complaint

Daijiworld Media Network - Shivamogga (SP)

Shivamogga, Jan 17: A complaint is lodged in Ripponpet police station in the district against a husband and his family members. They have been charged with pressuring the lady to bring dowry from her father, duly threatening to expose her video in the nude on social websites.

The harassed wife has named the accused as her husband Salman from Sringeri, Chikkamagaluru district, mother-in-law Sahira, father-in-law Shaukat khan, and sister-in-law Sameena.

The lady living in a village in Huncha revenue division near Ripponpet had married Salman from Sringeri on May 22, 2021. Her father had agreed to pay dowry in the form of 90 grams of gold, and three lac rupees in cash. Before the marriage, two lac rupees in cash, and a four-gram ring were given. It is said that after the marriage, 90 grams of gold and household goods were given. But the family of her husband often quarrelled on the issue of pending one lac rupees in cash. This issue often resulted in heated exchange of words, and each time ended in truce.

Of late, her mother-in-law Sahira and father-in-law Sahukat, started to harass the lady regularly, demanding for the balance dowry amount. Her husband and his sister Sameena too supported them in harassing the complaint. Her husband had made a video of her in the nude. He threatened to upload the video on the social media or send it to others towards her character assassination, the lady stated.

Unable to bear this harassment, the lady had recently returned to her parents. Her husband came there and returned after giving her talaq. He also called her to tell her that he would be uploading the nude video online. He also demanded payment of balance dowry and threatened to kill her if she fails to bring the remaining dowry, the woman stated.

    It is only when women claim LOUDLY that they have been raped or harassed for dowry do we get to hear their voice through the media. SC has said that over 80% of such rape accusations are completely false. I am sure over 80% of 'dowry harassment' cases are also false. This is how women can create hell for everyone in their husband's families. By the time the entire case is heard, ten years will go by and many men's life is completely destroyed. India needs better laws . Otherwise men are doomed by false accusations.

    Aggressive treatment and blackmailing for a dowry is morally wrong. Only a third rated person can do it. India has a record of dowry related complications. We Indians have highest number of dowry-related deaths in the world according to Indian National Crime Record. Last year, 8,233 dowry death cases were reported across India. Every 90 minutes, a bride is burnt in my country. Most shameful situation and there is no improvement in this is expected, though there is law against it. After writing 20 page essays against dowry, men are cracking IAS, but then, when they get married take dowry in 8 figures.

    it is written Quran 4:34 Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great. MEN ARE NOT REBELLIOUS. WOMEN ARE ONLY REBELLIOUS?! WOMEN EARN MORE THAN MEN. MEN CANNOT PERFORM SALAT IF A WOMEN PASS BY TO A STONE THROWN DISTANCE.

    Rogue. No humanity towards the person who kept her hopes upon him. If you cannot take care of your wife means dont marry. Don't spoil her entire life.
