What is always considered that the male is at fault, this prejudice and biasness is seen even in the procedure of the justice making. As very clearly the court explains its point of view that is: They have taken in to account the culprits who escape by settlement done. Where most of the times the dowry amount is recovered with other expenses of one side and further the settlement amount is paid by either lumpsum or by installments. But has anyone realised that the victim is blackmailed?
What is overlooked: That the crime of giving alleged dowry was also done which is being recovered. I suggest the dowry species should not avail this benefit. And to eradicate non dowry certificate is must to be produced for any matters involving marriage proofs ad its related procedures.
What is also overlooked: Women who have filed the case on false frivolous grounds with her Sabak-Sikhana-hai attitude because the law was broken according to the bride and hence she filed the complain that had the cascading effect of police being in to compulsion of making an FIR. Thus adding in to the statistics of crime against women which often misleads the janta by giving a picture of crimes committed as against the complaints recorded which are yet to be established as Genuine or not Genuine on a scale of 1 to 4 by police. And mind you only wives have this exclusive facility of getting an FIR lodged in India. The husband or his relatives (including women – mothers and sisters are not allowed to lodge an FIR against a daughter in law, thus completely blocking the actual picture of crime on the other side.)
What is also overlooked: Women who misuse the machinery should be arrested suomoto. The patching up will not be a solution to the dissolution of the case. This reminds the closing words of the novel written by Irving Wallace’s “The second Lady” and the words were “only she knows (if she is real or not)” in this case too yes only she knows the truth.
The husband would be jailed despite patch up. Now here comes the catch “If the women say that she is willing to forgive (may be it is a false case and her motives are now fulfilled) or she may have done that in a marathon fit of an anger. Some of them now realizing that she was not aware of the consequences. She is stuck as well. Just like the shrapp of a sadhu cannot be undone rather it is non compoundable similarly a complaint of wife (who cares if it is false) cannot be undone and the hubby needs to go to jail for 3 years as of now (ya NCW wants this to be increased to 7 years)
Those who filed the cases with a motive of extracting money will now be stuck as it would be a lose lose situation. But yes the new ones will be discouraged by the mahila mandals and the lawyers who want a quick buck out of the settlement done via this legal terrorism torture.
Rather there should be a 3 dimensional view to any problem with all points of view to be taken in to consideration which is missing here. There has to be a strong punishment for the lady who misuses the law too and for the man who breaks this law. (period)
Unless this is not done you are bound to get a court talking about the non compoundability in its strict sense from the girl’s point of view and the state for the settlement from the onus point of view (nos of inconclusive cases with a huge backlog).
Nobody here is talking from the male point of view. Sadly, But well if the middleway is worked out the atleast the taxes contributed majority by men would not be misused on the state sponsored lawyer for a surpanakha and national time and money would be utilized in a more productive departments and definitely no running on treadmill by the Govt, Courts and the clients, and no rape of the victims , no Courtroom orgasms for the Lawyers and babus.
