    8 Reasons to NOT Send Your Daughter to College-Final Part

    Here are the reasons to NOT send your daughter to college: 1. She will attract the wrong types of men. I share the common concern addressed to us, again mainly by angry women, that there are so many lazy men in our society. But what mystifies me is why girls continue to marry them and […]

    8 Reasons to NOT Send Your Daughter to College- Part1

    Probably the most controversial and rejected position we have at Fix the Family is that parents should not send their daughters to college. It is even more vehemently opposed than the submission of wives to their husbands. Both of these positions we have are a threat to the trophies of the feminist agenda, so the […]

Phir Bhi DIL (Daughter-in-Law) Ho Hindustani

| February 16, 2013 | 25 Comments

Hello and As Salamualaykum!

It is pathetic that the disease of dowry system not only exists locally but is also spread globally.   NRIs too have a big tag price.  They uphold the traditions by marrying a girl from the home country but also follow the tradition of dowry system.  No matter where we are settled whether in U.S., Canada, U.K. or Australia our mindset is the same.  

I would like to address the issue of “Dowry System” which is the mother of all evils in our Society by my articles, poems, and even songs:

Hum Logon ko, shaadi mein tho

Hum Logon ko, shaadi mein tho nahin koi pareshani

Jitna bhi hum chaahen utna jahez milega aasani

Hum Logon ko, shaadi mein tho nahin koi pareshani

Jitna bhi hum chaahen utna jahez milega aasani

Apni chokri tum dedo tho nahin isme koi naadani

Canada, U.K. U.S. ki to sabhyata hai Englistani

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

 

Thode Ameer hain, bakhi shikari

Ladki waalon pe ye hote hain bhari

Thode Ameer hain, bakhi shikari

Ladki waalon pe ye hote hain bhari

Unhe jahez chahiye

Aur Rupye bhi

Ye lootte aise hi hain

Aur hain jhoote vaise bhi

 

Hum Logon ko, shaadi mein tho nahin koi pareshani

Jaise bhi ho jahez tho dedo ab kaisi kheencha taani

Thodi jayedad rupya tho hai

Thodi rakhm bank se hai laani

Thodi thum engagement mein dedo

Thodi shaadi par hai chukani

Canada, U.K. U.S. ki to sabhyata hai Englistani

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

 

Apna beta bada Engineer hai

Aur wo kamaata bhi six figure hai

Apna beta bada Engineer hai

Aur wo kamaata bhi six figure hai

DIL dekha hai, poocha to nahin hai

Jahez ka laalach choota to nahin hai

 

Hum Logon ko, shaadi mein tho nahin koi pareshani

Jo bhi majboori hogi par humko nahin sunaani

Humre bête ki shaadi mein dhoom hai humko machani

Canada, U.K. U.S. ki to sabhyata hai Englistani

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

Phir bhi DIL Ho Hindustani,

    specially in india in some well known and big cities people are using very nice word for asking the dowry, “JODEY KI RAKHAM” NOW the new trendz are running over there instead of giving the dowry, “JODEY KI RAKHAM” condition to settle the husband with the job in gulf.

    • Fayaz Pasha says:

      Many thanks for your kind comments Isaq Bhai. It is very unfortunate that parents want their son to get settled from the girl’s money. Hope they realize how shameful it is and how much they are further spoiling the Society. If they have strong faith in Allah, he will surely settle their sons in the best places.

  2. A nice satirical use of the song, Unfortunate part is that somewhere girls’s parents too encourage this vice, leave alone boy’s side.

    Padhe likhe bete ka jo baap ho gaya

    Lakhpati apne hi aap ho gaya.

    • Fayaz Pasha says:

      Thank you Meenakshi. This is very much true. On one side the Society is struggling to address this evil dowry system and on the other hand the girl’s parents are also part of this crime. I hope they desist from being a partner to the crime that has debilated the Society.

  3. Rupali says:

    Nice composition on Dowry system giving a great message to all parents demand for a dowry.

  4. Wow… Nicely said… The use of the song is so apt, I mean making the parody of that song, Beautifully done and right to the point. Kudos!!

    Lolz… I agree but there are exceptions. Yaha to bete ki shadi mein paise loot rahe hai. Apart from dowry system, my problem is this whole lavish procedures esp of Marwadi weddings.

    BTW aajkal DIL kam nahi hai ;P

    • Fayaz Pasha says:

      Ekta, Thank you so much for dropping by. Yes, there are extreme dowry practices in different Societies. In the Middle East, a girl wouldn’t be ready to marry unless her would-be is ready to pay a dowry that she wants. Secondly, he should have a car that is one of the best models. He should have his own house or should be able to rent-out a separate apartment. He should have maid-servants and a chauffeur. Many are finding it difficult to comply with all these demands by the girl and her parents. On the other hand, we have a totally opposite situation in the Asian Countries where the girl and her parents have to bear all the burden. In Islam, it is the responsibility of the Bridegroom and his parents to pay dowry (bridal gift).

  6. Purba says:

    Parents who demand dowry for their sons are treating their own flesh and blood as investments.

  7. anjan roy says:

    You have portrayed one of the growing concern of today’s population with a well versed poetry…good one…!!!

  8. Whatever said and written against the dowry system, the practice seems to be increasing and flourishing.

    • Fayaz Pasha says:

      Its true that it is increasing and flourishing but doing nothing about it is also a crime. All of us need to address this issue in whatever manner we could so that more and more awareness is spread in the Society.
