One thought on “Protest against abuse of women and elders!

  1. Section 498A of IPC and the Domestic Violence Act must be scrapped in toto, or made applicable equally to husband/wife and/or man/woman. Tne moment any complaint is registered the policemen and the lawyers are the happiest of all as they start extracting money from the hapless victims of these draconian provisions. I have undergone this trauma and at one point thought of committing suicide along with my mother. I want to be very clear that I am not supporting harassment of women, but only that man and his family have to be protected. I am myself having a daughter, who is my only child, still I appeal for removal of these highly biased laws or suitable amendments.
