We have seen the below news article regarding the proposed amendments to the DP Act.
Whearas you had been quoted as saying “No complaints/ representations alleging misuse of Dowry Prohibition Act, 1961 have been received.”
This is not true. The correct position is thousands of husbands have committed suicide due to the heavy misuse of the above said Act. Our research shows that in almost 99.99 % of the FIR lodged in police station under section 498A , DP Act is also included.
So to say that DP Act is not misused but only 498A is misused is nothing but distortion and misrepresentation of the facts. Thousads of husband and their families have been petitioning the Government from many years to bring in changes to the section 498A and DP Act to prevent its heavy misuse.
It is also surprising to note that your ministry have initiated process to amend DP Act to prevent its misuse, whearas you say that it is not misused but on the other hand there is no proposal from your ministry to amend 498A which is heavily misused.
I request your ministry to check thousands of protest letters sent from various part of the country from several years regarding heavy misuse of DPAct and 498A. As per NCRB data every 7.2 minute one MEN is commiting suicide. Please initiate some concrete action to prevent misuse of the 498A, DV Act and DPAct before few more thousand husband commit suicide.
I would also bring to your kind attention and notice that “women empowerment” cannot be initiated at the cost of “MEN harassment”. As our Hon’ble president said once that both Gender should remain in peace and harmony rather than “Gender war”.
Kindly hear the pain, harassment of thousands of families who have been put in Jail simply on false allegation of daughterin-law.
