Killed due to dispute over dowry

    I wonder if there is any way to link this somehow to a Buddhist Monk, so that we all can start another round of bashing Sinhala Buddhism in Sri Lanka.

    Cannot that Buddhist Monk who preached Bana has a hand in this?

    [Dowry is a financial assistance or advance given by girl?s parents to the new couple to start their new life. Some people except this assistance or advance but some do not.]

    Yes that is how it started, but nowadays for some of these people dowry is more important than their children, almost like a business, its disgusting.

    Seems you are the only one who is trying to start something where there was nothing before, so wonder who the real hate monger is? so to others don`t fall for the bait.

    I have said many times on this forum that (without any prejudice to some good southerners like capricorn) that most of the southerners are crooks and they have a violent nature. They don`t hesitate to kill their own parents to resolve land issues, for a jack fruit, for a coconut. Even for a local smoke `beedi` one would kill his own father or monther. Remember, the two guys who snatched chain from a women and threw her back into the water to die in Tsunami. Many voilent things, including the war, is taking place in SL because of violent nature or southerners.

    It seems that there are some other reasons as well behind the killing apart from the dowry issue.

    Dowry,

    My god, in North it is a big business they haven`t changed after all these years of war.

    When I visited north after a long time I was hoping to see a lot of change in people, but I saw the opposite.

    Most of them are after foreign money, if you give a relative five lakhs, instead of appreciating the financial help they would not hesitate to spit on you, because they expect in the range of 25 lakhs.

    I would advise any bridegroom to get some dowry, but do not put any demand, say instead of giving 5 lakhs give 30 lakhs that kind of demand.

    Surely Ranil had a hand in this. It is happend because of the CFA. Otherwise it would never have happened. How come nobody blame Ranil for this?

    [A 28 year old technical officer was cut with a sharp weapon and burnt to death inside his house by a gang alleged to be relatives of a girl he refused to marry due to a dispute over the dowry. ]

    Have these murderers helped that girl in any way?

    These brutalities are very common in Jaffna by EPDP gang not for not agreeing to marry but to get money from the death squad of Sarath Fonseka.

    This is the country where the president himself indirectly encourage killings for political and military gains. The lives are made so cheap that killing is done for all sorts of silly and petty motives.

    Revy, what makes you to say that such things can happen only in India ? I have seen such disputes going to the court and eventually end up in divorce, but never like this. OMG.

    In India, the bride or wife dies.

    In sri lanka bridegroom/ husband dies.
