NawalParasi, Nepal: A stage play program against dowry has been completed in Sarawal rural municipality of West Nawalparasi, Nepal.
The stage play program against dowry was held at Sarawal-4, Badsar with the financial support of Balika Samridhi Samvad Kendra and the financial support of ABC Nepal Stroom Foundation in the cooperation of Sarawal rural municipality.
A stage play against dowry was held under the chairmanship of Dialogue Support Committee Chairman Barkallah Khan and chief guest Jantiri Sahani and social worker Suresh Prasad Yadav.
Speaking on the occasion, Chief Guest Sahani said that dowry is a heinous crime. However, the practice of dowry transactions is widespread in our society. Parents have to work very hard to get their daughters married. But the same boy’s side aggravates the problem by taking dowry.
And that creates a situation where the bride has to get married with a loan. She said that it was necessary to hold such programs to solve such problems and end the growing practice of taking dowry in society.
And she also said she would raise her voice against the dowry system.
Speaking on the occasion, the distinguished guest Yadav said that the Government of Nepal has enacted a law to end the practice of taking dowry. However, the practice of taking dowry in rural areas has not ended.
He said that it was necessary to raise public awareness in the community to end this practice.
He also said that in order to put an end to the practice of taking dowry, it is necessary for all of us to raise awareness in our own home, in the neighborhood, and in the community.
He also thanked the sponsor of the dialogue center, saying that he would always be there to solve the problem.
Among the guests at the program were Mohammad Salim Rain, Chairman of Shakti Samvad Kendra’s Support Committee, Mohammad Izhar Sheikh Chairman of Judicial Advisory Institution, Badsar Madarsha Chairman Sabir Ali Sheikh, Journalist Mahesh Yadav, ABC Nepal Supervisor Saida Nisha Pathan, Pratibha Kishor Kishori Network Chairman Buddhasagar Gupta, and others were present.
