Perhaps New Family laws are made to destroy families by pitting wife against husband.
About a decade ago one survey in London revealed that " women tell lies without a flicker in their eyes".
Then, how far it is justified to give judgments based on woman's allegations against a man ? And victimize not only a man but also women who are dependent on him?
"The victim has stood by her statement before the police and the trial court. The victim's version is reliable, truthful and capable of being relied upon".
High Courts' above observation sets a wrong precedent.
It is said, "Yatra Naryantu Pujyante ramante tatra devata". It is our duty to upheld and preserve a woman's dignity , honour and modesty. Who ever does any wrong must be punished.
OK, but HC judgement , according to the news, relies solely based upon the woman's statement.
We may pat our back for punishing a molester for the sake of a woman.
But, unlike in the US a man is not a loner in India. His mother, wife, daughter, sister,etc., dependent on him, also suffer and are all punished indirectly.
New laws victimize not only a man but also women who are dependent on him.
The above letter is written by me in reaction to a news item "Woman's dignity must be protected both at home and office: HC", in TOI dt. 21.4.13.

It is a common practice to write different different allegations in any Complaint to attract certain Sections of Cr P C and IPC. Truth may be different. Media by looking at the Complaint makes so much hullah bullah. After so many years of suffering by the ' Accused' they may get clean chit by Courts. Our Laws are made to 'feed' the ' Authorities' and suffer People. Now, position of Law is that if a Wife makes a complaint against a Husband for alleged 'suffering' it should be considered as Prima facie evidence and case should be booked without verifying the bona fides of the contents of the compliant. Irony is that this law is made by men against men.

I agree with you Mr Prasad. 498A is most misused section of CrPC. I think this Section was enacted under the aegis of US direction aimed at destroying our most refined, time tested and esteemed family system. It gives extra judicial powers to the Police. And it undermines Indian Evidence Act. For example, Confessions made before Police is not Evidence under law. But, 498A empowers to cook up the case against Men and Women belonging to in-laws of a womam.

Now onward Men who have knowledge of implications of this law may distance themselves from women colleagues for good lest false implication in a case using this law. Women also would learn to subdue their gender distinct characteristics. In the long run men and women may learn to forget their gender !
