Women-centric laws protested

Members of the Indian Family Foundation conducted a peaceful ‘jail bharo’ dharna on Tuesday at Goregaon (W) to protest against the misuse of 498 A and the Domestic Violence Act, which the organisers termed as ‘wifecentric laws’. The event was supported by former Mr India, Aryan Vaid. Several women were also part of the protest and alleged that under the garb of being women-centric, these laws were being used to harass mothers-in-law and sistersin-law. The protesters were taken to a police station and later let off. The protesters said they want the government to set up a ‘Ministry for men’s welfare’.
