See he loved Priya more than anything but she left him and faked her death without even thinking about him. Second she never had any intentions to come back to him neither bring her daughter back to him. It was just a chance that they met up in the marriage hall. Again if we even believe that she did not come because of Ayesha, still she came to know about Ayesha only towards the end of 5th year, what before that. So if she can separate a daughter from her father only on whims and fancies of an utopian world she created in her mind, she can do so with her daughter as well at some tother situation. Hence she deserves to be punished and the only punishment that can make her realize how a one sided decision can hurt someone bad is to take her daughter away for sometime which would show how one sided decision hurts.
As someone was telling what would have happened if she would have stayed in India, she would have been in Jail, then two things against that argument. First she would have been bailed out much before. Second she never ran away because she was pregnant she only came to know about it only at a later stage.
I'm sorry but such cold tit for tat reasoning doesnt account for the fact that pihu doesnt deserve to be hurt for whatever priya's fault was ...any mature man in his senses not thinking on childishly tit for tat lines would be able to see how deeply the pshyche and life of a five year old would be affected by such ping pong games ...
besides just because the consequences of 2 acts are the same doesnt mean that the end justifies or equalizes the means ...i beg pardon but this a deeply male immature chauvinistic way of thinking - human relationships do not work on such principles of rigid equality where qualitative differences in actions and contexts dont matter...the context and the action that priya took was for very different reasons from ram , it was not blind rage demanding to get even for wrong done, it was love which motivated her however misguided subjectively...so just because ram was seperated from his daughter for 5 years doesnt mean that it implies the only way of getting even is to take away five ears from priya's life with pihu...and hurt pihu most ...an eye for an eye doesnt work in human relations and love or else priya could also demand that ram go to jail for her or all the times in the past when he misunderstood her and took others side - including niharika's he should be paid back in teh same coin before priya can forgive him ...or that karthik shd demand that he go to jail and be beaten up b y police before also he forgave ram for sending him to jail on believing niharika, sid etc...nor can he tell nuts i will accept u once u suffer what i went thru when u did wrong to me...relationships are not courts of law where exact reciprocal punishments are given
