Misuse of Domestic Violence Act is a Human Rights Issue

    As per National Crime Records Bureau, from 1998 to 2014 after rounding off, a total of 10 Lac cases have been filed and 21 lac people have been arrested of which 5 Lac are women, 2 Lac are senior citizens and shockingly 10,000 are minor boys and girls.
Women were increasingly using the domestic violence law to harass in-laws and restrained police from mechanically arresting the husband and his relatives on mere lodging of a complaint under Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code.
Unscrupulous women misuse 498a to extort money and harass their husband's entire extended family.
In most cases wife forcing husband to live separately and does not respect husband and is discourteous of husbands parents.
Fearing arrest and continued torture from their wives, such men prefer to commit suicide.The Indian judiciary does not inspire any confidence in such men, feels the activist.
How have we become a society where rights of a young wife are more important than rights of a 60 year old woman or that of an old father and mother who have slogged for years bringing their son up or that of a teenage sister who could be ostracized for being in Jail for rest of her life or that of a married sister whose marriage might collapse because of her husband and in laws being dragged? How have we become a society where to get one woman justice we are doing injustice to so many people? How are we legally allowing these blackmails to happen where a man is snatched of years of his savings just because marriage of his son did not work? How can we jeopardize existence of a man, just because his marriage 'failed'?
