Dowry is a social evil. Guru Sahib has not endorsed anything which leads to killing of daughters over money.

This is true veerji but I wanted to know what Gurbani says about this...

ਹਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਮੇਰੇ ਬਾਬੁਲਾ ਹਰਿ ਦੇਵਹੁ ਦਾਨੁ ਮੈ ਦਾਜੋ ॥ हरि प्रभु मेरे बाबुला हरि देवहु दानु मै दाजो ॥ O my father, give me the Name of the Lord God as my wedding gift and dowry.

ਹੋਰਿ ਮਨਮੁਖ ਦਾਜੁ ਜਿ ਰਖਿ ਦਿਖਾਲਹਿ ਸੁ ਕੂੜੁ ਅਹੰਕਾਰੁ ਕਚੁ ਪਾਜੋ ॥ होरि मनमुख दाजु जि रखि दिखालहि सु कूड़ु अहंकारु कचु पाजो ॥ Any other dowry, which the self-willed manmukhs offer for show, is only false egotism and a worthless display.
