Bride burning is linked to the custom of dowry (the money, goods, or estate that a woman brings to her husband in marriage).
Thousands of young married women in India are routinely tortured and murdered by husband and in-laws who want more dowry from the bride's parents.
After burning the bride to death, the husband is free to remarry and get new dowry again from a new bride.
EVERY ONE HOUR AND 40 MINUTES,
A BRIDE IS BURNED IN INDIA.
More than 5,000 women get killed for dowry
