This situation is the creation of feminists NGO's and the National Commission for Women funded by Indian Government, who have crossed the line into dangerous territory.

Their preachings and actions are destroying the joint family values, and centuries old traditions including joint family system in India. The Draconian laws passed at their behest are killing institution of marriage in India.

Men and Women, Boys and Girls will soon stop supporting these
feminists NGO's and NCW for the disaster they have created in
the society. Once they come to know that their human and individual rights including their hard earned savings and properties are taken away under various draconian laws in force at the behest feminist's, they are bound to wake up and revolt.

The cases of Divorce, Dowry prohibition and 498A are multiplying in urban areas due to feminists one sided propaganda.
These draconian laws are mostly used and misused in urban areas
consisting 15 % population and affecting upper middle class families, Non Resident Indians and Persons of Indian Origin as they are vulnerable to blackmail and extortion including alimony and
maintenance. Rest of the 85% rural areas mostly have no such problems
as they are very closed societies and are not vulnerable to the false propaganda and modern feminists preachings. Rich and Poor families are not affected by these draconian laws as they sort out these problems themselves with their own methods.

Every case registered under these draconian laws and Media reporting is sending clear signals to every body including relatives of victim families, neighbours, generation of school and college students, young sons and daughters of marriageable age and their old parents that the marriage is a very dangerous commodity because
of these draconian laws. One case is sending signals to hundreds and thousands people about perils of marriage created by these one sided laws, when they see or
hear that entire family sick, old, pregnant and children being arrested without bail and jailed without any enquiry, verification and investigation.

Ignominy suffered during and prior to trial by the victim families will be reasons for others to loose faith in institution of marriage. The percentage of convictions in these cases is miserable 2% after long trial lasting several years and 98% is harassment and extortion. These laws have miserably failed and proved mockery of Indian legal
system.These laws have not benefited any woman in the process so for but proved dangerous to society.

Two basic tenants fo Law and Justice are
1. Person is innocent unless proven guilty
2. Thou shall not punish an innocent even if 100 guilty escapes

What 498A prctises is
1. Person is guilty unless proven innocent
2. Thou shall not let escape 1 guilty even if 100s of innocents are punished.

Another point - Whenever any exeption is made to principles and rules (anywhere, a organisation, institute or any other entity), you have to be double sure of preventing its misuse.
It is an EXCEPTION so one puts strict process AND punishement is severe if the exception is misused.
But not for 498A.
First of all it is very difficult to prove innocence under 498A- it is branzely one sided. Even if in rare scenario one is able to prove innocence and that the charges were made to falsely implicate, there is no penlty for accuser.
Let me ask simple question.
A charges B unser a law that has been created by reversing principle of Justice as an exception.
B can get say 7 years of imrisonment under the charge (and that is just direct consequnce, in fact it destroys whole life of B and not only B but others in B's family).
If B proves the chrges were malintentioned, why should not A get punishment that is at least same as B would have got under charges. Though principles of justice fairly demand much more severe punishment but we do not have even same punishment as B would have got.
That should be the first step in bringing some sanity, rule to 498A.
Else it is worse that "Andher Nagri Chaupat Raja".

Dear Sir,

This is Pooja Trivedi. I work for a Production House in Mumbai. We are putting together a series of stories for a leading channel that documents real interpersonal stories of personal achievement or breaking norms or affecting the life of an individual or society positively.

We are, through the show, promoting the concept of 'Nayi Soch' (people who have shown a new thought process) and I would love to get in touch with you regarding one of the stories covered by Mr. Peco Charavatru.

It would be great if you could help us get in touch with Mr. Peco as well.

I would greatly appreciate your help in putting together the story.

I look forward to hear from you. My e-mail id is poojat@bigsynergy.tv
