Dear Sir,

 

The misuse of 498A IPC and other matrimonial laws is an open secret. Even the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India and various High Courts on more than one occasion have acknowledged the heavy misuse of 498A and had termed it as “Legal Terror”. Our NGO has been creating awareness in the society and relentlessly requesting government from several years that there is a serious need to urgently overhaul all the matrimonial laws and to make all of them “Gender Neutral”.

 

We have been trying relentlessly over several years to convince the government that crime has nothing to do with gender and anyone can be perpetrator of crime irrespective of gender.

 

Things would have been still better but for the insensitivity of the Government to make laws only for young married woman. E.g. if we take the example of Protection of Woman from Domestic Violence Act, it does not provide any protection to sisters and mothers of husband even though they are also woman!! Similarly under 498A police accepts only complaint of daughter-in-law but there is no provision for mother-in-law to file complaint against cruelty and harassment from daughter-in-law.

 

We have been holding Protest, Dharna, PILs, Press Conferences, Protest march, Petitioning Government etc, but of no avail. Government seems to be in no mood to listen to us and has turned a blind eye towards us.

 

We have high hopes from Judiciary which over several years have been consistently acknowledging heavy misuse of 498A IPC and other gender biased laws. Our NGO has recently published a reality fiction “Just Married: Have You Applied For Bail?”  which is more or less in similarity with the sarcastic remark once made by the vacation bench of Justices Arijit Pasayat and G S Singhvi of Hon’ble  Supreme court that “Even at the time of marriage, anticipatory divorce petitions are being filed,”

 

Our NGO has attached a copy of the book for your kind consideration and reading with high hopes that Judiciary will deal with the misuse cases with iron hand so that innocents are not punished and the well intentioned laws are not misused.

 

As it is not fair on part of any NGO or citizen to directly approach Hon’ble Judges with any grievances or petition, hence requesting you to kindly circulate a copy of the above book to the below list of Judges through your office. Total 43 copies of book are attached herewith.
