IPC Section 498-A: Misuse

Dedicated to the Victimised Indian Families, Who are falsely threatened & Blackmailed by the Indian Daughters-In-Law & her family members, and those Victimised families who are already falsely charged under the Section 498A.

Women go to the police with a complaint (may be false), but the system provides to record that as a criminal complaint and that data adds in to the National Statistics of Crime Against Women. When male goes with a genuine complaint the police at max can record a Non Cognizable offence against the women. That will never reflect in the statistics. Then how will one guage crime against men? Every 100 Suicides in India have 63 Males and 37 Females. Every 100 male suicides have 45 married males, and every 100 women suicides have 25 married Women. Married women suicides have default arrests of the inlaws under presumed dowry death. Married men suicides entitle wife for a 50% share in property. What kind of equality is this?

Oh God!!! Its Friday

I am currently having the privilege of handling the Free Mumbai helpline to guide the victims. Though the job is tough but satisfying as it creates a 2 way feel good factor. But it is more touching and frustrating. Frustrating to see the senior citizens and innocent people living in threat of flase 498a striking them for not dowry but some ego problem of their D-I-L. They are in a phase called after marriage and before 498a. It is also now called as a pre-498a stage. Where the daughter-in-law has pledged to put all the inlaws behind bars. And those people whose relatives are already 498a stuck and behind bars or victims who are just bailed out.

A Guy marries a girl for happiness. He too has dreams just like any one elseā€¦. Well just like the girl who walks in. Things settle down in some days where both the parties settle down with the realities of life that is actually 'hatt ke' from fantasies. The ones who do not come to terms with this fact suffer at their own cost of money and definitely time.

In India where there is a vast population in urban areas with a very less man-land ratio the laws are made keeping mind the rural population and applied to the majority too. This unity in diversity is causing it adverse effect now.

But what I have noticed is that most of the arrests that have been made are on Friday evening. The reasons are that the next 2 days being weekend off ensures that the husbands and his parents and relatives spend atleast that many days in jail till the court opens on Monday. And if that day happens to be a govt holiday then the proceedings are in a suspension for a further while. The other popular days are days before holidays esp if the holiday is on Friday, then Thursday is apt to arrest as the proceedings are halted for 3 days minimum and the husbands and his innocent ailing parents are in jail. I would rate these cases from past trends as more than 90%.

This is indeed proves to be a well planned and timed attack with a well spun web that ensures harassment, demoralisation of the vicitims. There is no other justification to this. As many arrests have been after 1-2 years of separation too and that to on a Friday.

Otherwise Friday is known for the events like

- Good Friday (anniversary of crucifixion of Christ.)
- Assassination of Kennedy and Lincoln or
- Even assassination M K Gandhi
- Also known for viruses attack

And now it is getting known for
- False and planned 498a arrests of Innocent husbands and family members of his side.

An innocent husband of an estranged wife is afraid of 498a, 406 and Friday.

This calls in for a P-I-L (no harm in filing this too) to atleast stop arrests on Friday or on days that precede holidays with 498a in its current state of inflexibility of
non bailable nature. Atleast in partial favour of Legal jurisprudence of 1000 guilty men escaping the clutches of law but not 1 innocent person should be punished for the crime that is not committed by him.

Hey people, Please comment on your experiences too on Friday arrests.

FRIDAYS are selected and used by
corrupt Indian Police as the entire Law enfrcing Machinery including Indian government are
not democratic.

Only fascist dictatorships and enemies of the society create
laws that destroys the very society they claim to protect.

the reason its friday because they are always malafide. it was saturday for me. I just can't understand when men control most of the society why men can't safegurd themselves? we are digging ourselves by allowing anti men laws (antihuman laws). we talk a lot about it but fact is once fir is registered atleast the husband is dead sure to be arrested and put in jail for some days. how about these wives spent a day in arther road jail. let the criminals in jail haunt them the way husbands are tortured along with their families

My mother was summoned to the police station on a Friday

My mum and all our relatives were shocked when the police man tapped at our house door and threatened us !!

We escaped by the skin of our teeth !!

Its yet another story that we got an anticipatory bail and ran around ... nay continue running around family courts ever since as the family court process is equally tortorus

NOW .... The councilor (at the family court !!) keeps asking us to patch up :-). Here I am ready to patch up, but my wife refuses to Councilor and the Judge say, next concillation please on such and such date !!! meaning I have to travel 1000s of miles to attend the next concilation NOT HEARING !! and my wife will sit there cross legged and refuse to re unite

Well... well... well.... life goes on ....

I was arrested on a wednesday or something, since my in laws never wanted to severe ties, they just wanted to threaten me into submission. So they didnt want me to feel too bad by having to spend the weekend in the Jail!. They were actually full-on for getting my parents behind bars, they almost got that done, but god had other plans!, but of course!.

I would urge a lot more of our members to start blogging, since blogs give a more personal word of the mouth kind of opinion leadership, thats the way we can grow deep if not wide in society.

Well, that says it all. Women not only cook food in the kitchen, they also cook up plots of conspiracy in the kitchen.
I am asking to all who are not yet a victim of 498a and are still living in the 14th century.
Please let me know when you guys will realise that women of today are no longer the women of yesteryears. Give me a date when you morons - who think women should be respected in the society - will know the reality so that till that date, we all will sit tight.
Let us all take this resolution that given a choice between the two, Justice or Women. Whom will you support ?
Do not fall for the external beauty of a woman. We have no clue what she might be cooking to ruin our life behind her cute, innocent looks.

Dear All
It is really humilating situation for all husbands/male u cant do nothing
just see your elders being carried to jail and u just watch them helpless
but till what time and to what extend we will tolerate this. Although it
is said it is male dominated society but with increasing misuse of 498A
does this really hold true. Is the law in India to give justice or murder
male and elder people.I feel we will have to promote the culture of taking
affidivat from girls parent that that have not given any dowry to their in laws
and we male should get married only after getting this affidivat.
