I'm afraid that neither makes sense. Do you mean that a dowry is a MATTER of course?

Sorry, I have made a mistake of spelling The word "Course" instead of curse.

A lot of thanks

Ah! Then you need to say 'In our country, a dowry is a curse'.

(Just out of interest, is that actually true of Bangladesh??)
