New Delhi: Following a series of dowry deaths in Kerala recently, Governor Arif Mohamed Khan now proposes a unique way to deal with this threat. He suggested to the vice president of the state university that students should sign a voucher that they would not accept or serve as a dowry during admission and before the undergraduate degree is awarded.
“The principals suggested that not only students should be required to sign a letter of guarantee when enrolling, but before the degree is awarded. And everyone appointed at the university should be required to sign a link. ANI quoted him.
In addition, Khan added that in addition to students, teachers and staff must also sign the bonds against the dowry. “The signing of the letter of guarantee should not be restricted to the students, but also the faculty and staff should sign the letter of guarantee. During the conference with the rector of the university, some conclusions were made, why only students, parents, and at that time, if you want to enroll you must sign the letter of guarantee. Universities cannot and should not allow their degrees applied as a license to increase the price of the bride and groom in the marriage market, ”said the governor.
“This is not the problem of a woman, this is a human problem. If you defeat the woman, society has not decided. Exercise of the woman. This is a human dignity” and said the Kerala Government.
On Wednesday (July 14), Khan held a one-day fast against dowry in order to raise society’s awareness of this social evil and end the violence against women.
He said that the specter of dowry continues to rage in Kerala, which is “renowned worldwide for enviable social indicators such as literacy rate and life expectancy”.
He added: “The recent tragic dowry death in our beloved Kerala made headlines.” Khan also participated in a Gandhi-hosted prayer meeting hosted by Gandhi Bhavan at Thiruvananthapuram.
Last month, Khan made an emotional appeal to women, asking them to reject the dowry when they married and expressed interest in participating in any “organized” voluntary movement to make people aware of evil. According to PTI reports, he also visited the home of Vismaya, an Ayurvedic medical student, who was recently discovered to have died mysteriously at her husband’s home because she complained of dowry harassment at Kollam district.
