Calling the trend an atavistic step, women's rights activist Kiran Moghe said equal rights on land is mandatory for gender equality. "The excuse that daughter's share is used up on her wedding does not make sense. According to me, this is cheating," she said. Moghe stated that as this is predominantly a rural phenomenon, women do not protest as they are scared to rub their paternal family the wrong way. "In case things do not work out at her in-laws' home, they feel they should have somewhere to go back," she said.
