Brilliant Comment by Shweta on the article of Times of India on 498A Misuse

Brilliant Comment by Shweta on the article of Times of India on 498A Misuse
Shweta Ag hav posted my comment there: I very much appreciate “Times View” on this article which is creating awareness about an undisputed fact that matrimonial laws are being widely misused. I would also like to mention here that 498A (or the antidowry law), even without death or any damage to the woman filing the complaint, is implemented in such a way that it can easily ruin the complete family of the husband to include his parents and siblings too. It is also a provable fact the in the name of protection of women, these laws have instead resulted in arrest and longterm harassment to much more number of women (sisters, mothers and other female relatives of the husband) than the ones filing such complaints. Infact, for every complaint filed under 498A (anti-dowry law) at least one or more women are implicated and most of the times totally falsely. Torturing and punishing innocents and practicing extortion on the pretext of such laws, can never improve or benefit the society. Death of a married woman is still a different case where at least something odd has happened even if it cannot b assumed randomly that in-laws would be responsible for it; but, most unfortunate is the fact that in the cases where NOTHING at all has happened to the woman evidently, the woman filing the complaint easily manages to grab a huge amount of money just by filing a false dowry complaint and blackmailing and thus misuse of such laws is rising eachday. If this misuse of laws is allowed to continue, our society will lose its family culture soon and even genuine victims of harassment will never get any respect in the society. Needless to say that these laws are just resulting in monetary gains to numerous law professionals that too at the cost of lives of numerous innocent and law abiding citizens of this country. I would request the authorities to stop torturing sisters and mothers in the name of socalled pro-women laws. I would also very humbly request The Times of India to further spread awareness about misuse of matrimonial and maintenance laws through their newspaper and thank you very much again for this generous attempt…. 🙂

    Yes – under the provisions of so called pro-women laws, innocent mothers and sisters are being subjected to mental agony incurring no fault liability. God knows, who can save the family culture in India under these circumstances.

    I belong to Amritsar, Punjab. I m unmarried n live wid my parents who remain unwell. My sister in law threatens us always with police complaints. We need some protection before she does something against us.
