This program was at the family court, bandra. 50 members in PIF T-shirts gathered and educated the people around family about the ill effects of misusing laws concerning families and also distributed pamphlets outlining these ill effects. The program details were communicated beforehand to the family court officials including the judges and the counsellors. Protect Indian family intends to continue such awareness programs in future too, especially since the high court of mumbai itself has been promoting such programs which could reduce disintegration of families and avoid wasteful litigation for all. Crores of rupees are wasted in the conduct of such litigations both in terms of juidical resources and public resources, apart from the weakening of the foundation of nation itself- The Family.
The present trend of wives filing false criminal cases, against their husbands and his family, at the drop of the hat(for reasons other than harassment and cruelty) is a very disturbing trend and is sure to affect India's progress itself in the long run. Progress of a country depends upon the level of wellness of its citizens, and if most of the citizens are entangled in trivial marital issues which are nevertheless catapulted into false but serious criminal cases, only god can save that nation!. The future of the nation, the children, are actually the prime affected in these unnecessary and ill-intentioned litigations there by sealing the fate of progress deep down the drains.
Misuse proportions are so overwhelming and flagrant that the Supreme court itself has termed this trend of misuse of women protection laws as 'Legal Terrorism', whereas this trend is actually fuelled by the breed of corrupt Police, indifferent Judiciary apart from the conniving and fire-starting advocates which prompts us to call it 'Sate Terrorism'!. Of course these laws are misused by the misusers themselves, but they find it easy to misuse since there is no fear of punishment even if the misuse is proved – They misuse the laws, because THEY CAN!.
The irony of all this is that women themselves are the targets of these misused women protection laws!(22% of all arrested in 498a IPC are women, compared to 5.8% average number of women arrested among the total in case of all other IPC sections. Source: National Crime Research Bureau)
