Legal awareness seminar(coping with Misuse of Family laws): Conducted
by Save Indian Family foundation(SIF). Laws like IPC 498a are misused

legal proceedings. Arrests could happen even without any witness,

We have invited victims from all over India, who will be discussing
their problems and would share their harrowing experiences with this
law of 498a. Lawyers, Retired senior Judges and Police Officers have
expressed their interest in attending this meeting and addressing the
concerns of the innocent affected families. We Invite your
representative to be present to know more about our movement called
“SAVE INDIAN FAMILY”. A rapidly growing internet yahoogroup of 1100+
families. The regional teams in different states of India, have
launched self-funded phone help-lines. The guys next door, who happen
to be innocent victims of this Legal Terrorism, manage these teams.
A Brief about the Misuse of Section 498a by law-misusing Wives
23 yrs old section 498a of IPC was introduced to tackle the Dowry
menace at large. But the trend over the years have proven this section
as a failure. Observation of even Supreme Court of India is that these
laws(intended to save a family) have been misused rather than used for
genuine reasons.
The potency of misuse in 498a is unfathomable and highly destructive
since the Police doesn't need any other supporting evidence or
witnesses, other than JUST the wife's statement/complaint, to straight
away arrest the Husband and his relativesMajor reason of misuse is that the “burden of proof is on the accused”
and the “accused is considered guilty, till proven innocent”(opposite
to the general legal Maxim which presumes “Innocent till proven
Guilty”, as in all other crimes). This involves the mandatory arrests
of all the accused without investigation on a mere complaint of an
inconsiderate or cunning wife, against the innocent husband and his
family members. Thus damage is already done without crosschecking the
verity of the complaint. Generally this tool is effectively misused or
threatened to be misused, by the divorcing wives to extract a huge
alimony amount from the husband. This Nonbailable, Non Compoundable and
Cognizable offence has had a conviction rate of just 2% over the years,
which itself speak volumes about its low efficacy and usefulness. We
are only trying to amend these laws in such a way that its genuine use
will protect families, but its misuse does not break families apart
like its happening now.
Even with so much of misuse and appeals the government is pretending
sleep. The general opinion on this law is as follows:
1: Supreme Court of India on 498A stated, "The object is to strike at
the root of dowry menace. But by misuse of the provision a new legal
terrorism can be unleashed. The provision is intended to be used as a
shield and not as assassin's weapon. If [the] cry of "wolf" is made too
often as a prank, assistance and protection may not be available when
the actual wolf appears."-it has unleashed a new form of Legal
Terrorism as per Supreme Court 2. Kiran Bedi says: "Laws had been provided for the welfare of women.
The police need not assist those who misuse or abuse the law meant for
the protection of women."3. Justice J D Kapoor Says: ‘‘There is a growing tendency among women,
which is further perpetuated by their parents and relatives, to rope in
each and every relative, including minors and even school going
children of distant relatives.’’4. Kolkatta High Court Justice S.P. Talukdar said the “dangerous”
practice of misusing Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code (cruelty on
housewives by husbands and in-laws) should be immediately stopped. 5. NRI Journalist Kulbhushan stated "Filing a non-bailable dowry case
under IPC 498A is easier than ordering a meal. But while a restaurant
can refuse service, the police normally arrest the groom and the
in-laws. While the Indian media is flooded with reports of
dowry-related bride torture, it hardly mentions the horrific cases of
suffering husbands at the hands of unscrupulous wives."

NRI lost interest and respect for the place when recently got into this trap. Previously was visiting India regularly and also contrubuted at places of need. Totally innocent but now even scared to place information here with name and address.....simply because you never know what can happen. My life is valued by me and dont want it ruined by some thugs when such law exists in India. Can we please have more Gandhis from the politicians of India? Gandhi opened this employment.....that is Official Indian Politics. So let us give something in return to HIM please. UK Guy.

Reading all this about the misuse of law and in particular misuse of 498A, I have a suggestion for NRI. Go to India for a holiday. Like now, don’t get involved with politics and business there in India. By now after many years abroad, you have got this title of being a NRI. Most likely you are born abroad. So be a NRI. They used to say when you marry a lady, the 2 families also get married. The problems get sorted out by the 2 families. But remember now…..REMEMBER…..NRI guy not only marries an Indian lady from India but also marries the India police, who are the first ones to arrest you before you are found guilty. Why we blame the law? The law is there. The people who put the law in place are the ones to take the responsibility. So why marry a lady from India in the first place? There are plenty of Indian ladies abroad also where you now live. The Indian lady from India will find it difficult to adjust to the life abroad… particular UK and then will blame you and they have the additional police force in India who they can rely on to lock you up next time you are in India or can call you to India by arresting your family member in India, if you have any there. Why marry one and try to see if she adjusts to the life in UK. Why take this risk as she has the Indian police on her side to even ruin your future visits to India. Be safe where you belong and serve that country. You are a NRI and be a NRI. Yes, visit India, see the place, enjoy the Darshans at religious places, enjoy the food and get out after that, back to where you belong. Sorry India this is happening now after personal experience. I am giving my points only about this one problem in India. It is up to others and India herself to address other issues. UK guy.

Dear Friends,

I am please to blog this on behalf of this 17 Yr Old College going Girl, She Writes

I being a 21st Century Girl doesn’t believe that India is a male dominated country because now-a-days abla’s are sabla’s I mean to say that today’s generation women always want to get something which is new branded and which also has a status symbol that too sitting at home without earning anything. This whole pressure comes on the poor husband who has to listen to his parents, to his in-law, to his boss to his children’s demand too. Irrespective of his demand he has to fulfill his family demand first.

If demand is not fulfilled by him then he has to listen to his wife’s taunts, his children’s frustration to face other problems too. Husbands also have only one person to whom they can talk i.e. to their wife, But dominating nature of wives make them more angry and violent due to which male remove their frustration in form of anger and violence. After that, the spouse or man’s better half do the propaganda of their so called plight without thinking about their husband’s mental status. Thus, adding fuel to fire. They do this with their sure shot and powerful weapon i.e. Tears. Some wives are so great that they directly go to the cops without thinking once about the consequences on their husbands and his family members, Due to which males like (Ram) have to suffer a lot.

This thought of mine can be explained with my personally witnessed experience some days back in my friend’s case. She was genuinely eve teased by some notorious guys in her neighborhood. Her father came to know about this incidence and he called the cops. The guys were taken to question by the police. But to my surprise the police did not even question us at all!!! They took us on face value and the guys were bashed royally by police. And we were not even questioned at all. I could sense the loop hole that I hear many elder married guys stuck in divorce who talks about it, like the one in my neighborhood. Before which I had no whiff about the whole thing.

I asked the police if we could leave and he understood my gesture on face. And he said to us that “You are like our daughters and we have now to be extra cautious about our image too, especially after the rape cases”

And that is where after the NC was lodged I could make out that men are really really vulnerable and women is actually dominating men using men (police) and law to the maximum of their advantage.

No doubt my friends’ grievance was genuine but the statement of the police and the treatment given to the accused at the face value of the whole matter made my conscience prick me to the extent of telling me that thank god I do not have a brother else he could have been victimized and would have been equally vulnerable to this attitude of the police.

“That keeps me pondering on the question that “Is India Really a Male Dominated Country???”
