It is hard to disagree that woman in India need protection and guard against any kind of possible oppression and atrocity. It also can not be doubted that during last few decades of twentieth century the women has been subjected to acute atrocities, primarily because of dowry menace.

Few strict laws like section 498A of IPC were enacted to take care of the situation but in recent years it has been observed that outcome of these laws in not, what was intended while their creation. Innocents are being implicated by educated and resourceful wives of metro cities, while real culprits are walking away freely even after brutal torture of helpless by them.

Misuse of dowry and woman harassment laws has now become a well recognized problem in India. These laws are inhumane as they do not allow innocent accused person to speak for their defense and increasing number of guiltless elder parents, sisters are being victimized and arrested by its misuse. The wicked implementation of these laws has forced rational community to believe that law and justice need not to be synonyms always.

Recently, it has also been observed by various responsible agencies and Indian Judiciary that these laws are proving to be highly injurious for the Indian society. WHO identified these laws as emerging reason for elder abuse in India while the Honb'le Supreme Court had to use words "Legal Terrorism" in reference to these laws. Their implementation in present format is constantly ruining the family harmony of our society and if not controlled, these laws have the enormous potential to shatter marital and family stability in years to come by.

Unfortunately, in spite of this alarming situation, very little help is available for the innocents who are being victimized through these laws. In cities like Delhi, one can find over a hundred organizations claiming to be fighting for women through monitory support from government but none for the innocents and elders, falsely implicated through these laws. Even after repeated recommendations from Judiciary, the politicians have refused to amend the laws, as such reforms may impact their vote bank equation adversely.

In order to escalate and analyze this serious issue, a seminar is being organized in New Delhi by 'Save Family Forum', where knowledgeable dignitaries from Judiciary, Police, Social Work and Politics are expected to comment on the situation and possible remedy. The details of seminar as follows:

Passed by Indian Parliament in 1983, Indian Penal Code 498A, is a criminal law (not a civil law) which is defined as follows,
“Whoever, being the husband or the relative of the husband of a woman, subjects such woman to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine. The offence is Cognizable, non-compoundable and non-bailable.”

How are you at risk and why it is dangerous for the society?

Your wife/daughter-in-law who's demands are not met can make a written false complaint of dowry harassment to a nearby police station. The husband, his old parents and relatives are immediately arrested without sufficient investigation and put behind bars on a non-bailable terms. Even if the complaint is false, you shall be presumed guilty until you prove that you are innocent.
