Reports have claimed that the administration of the Mahila Kala Vanijya Mahavidyalaya forced the students to take the absurd pledge, which was a part of the National Service Scheme (NSS) camp. Nearly 40 of the 100 students participated in the NSS camp took the oath.
“I take oath that I have complete faith in my parents. So, in wake of the events happened around me, I would neither involve in love nor would do love marriage. Also, I wouldn’t marry anyone who will demand dowry. If my parents marry me off by giving dowry due to some social compulsions, as a future mother, I will not take dowry from the parents of my would-be daughter-in-law and will not give dowry for my daughter’s marriage. I am taking this oath for a strong and healthy India”, the students of Mahila Kala Vanijya Mahavidyalaya reportedly vowed.
Speaking to the Indian Express, Principal of the college said that the notion behind the pledge was to ensure that girls focus on studies and think of marriage later.
