The Pakistani government has passed a landmark law banning dowry, making Pakistan the first country to pass a dowry law. The Ministry of Religious Affairs has ruled that the bride’s family can no longer retrieve expensive furniture, cars, landing property or jewelery, banning the need for traditional dowry. However, according to the ruling, the dowry includes basic necessities such as bedding and some wedding dresses in accordance with Islamic teachings. According to the account, the amount of the bride’s dowry or the value of the goods cannot exceed 4 gold bars. In addition, gifts for wedding guests can cost up to Rs. 500. 1000 The law will apply to the entire country, including Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan and Azad Kashmir. Due to traditional customs, this law will reduce the additional burden on the bride’s family.
