  1. http://www.storypick.com/bangaluru-college-dowry/ Yes, you heard that right dowry is being justified in Indian textbooks. A Facebook post says that this a page from a B.A. student’s study material from St. Joseph’s College in Bangaluru. The student is studying Sociology and in a class of 60 people and faculty, no one opposed this. The material said, The post has gone viral with over 1200 shares in just over a day. It is scary that such things get indorsed even in textbooks. Dowry is a punishable offense under the Dowry Prohibition Act. Instead of focussing on that, out education system is teaching us this. The appalling chapter also said, See the whole post here: Image Source Netizens obviously had a lot to say about the post Image Source Although the text says that ‘according to them (supporters), these are the advantages’, it doesn’t compensate for the subtle promotion of ‘their’ point of view. Why would anyone want to study ‘Advantages of dowry’ from the point of view of their supporters? Wouldn’t it be same as a chapter on ‘Killing people have its supporters (yes, they are called cold blooded murderers). And according to them, these are the advantages of murder. Point #1: Population control: Ugly people can be killed off to maintain population growth” If this sounds outrageous to you, so should the dowry chapter. Period. ----------------------------------------------- Wow...just wow ! This is what is taught in college.
