Justice for many male victims

This petition had 40 supporters

There has been lot of misuse of section 498a in recent times. About 80% of the cases are proved to be false allegations. It is insensitive to consider that the husbands are the dominative species and cannot be subjected to mental harrassment by wives. There is no provision for husbands who are victims of mental harrassment and abusive blackmail in our legal system currently. For example : A wife can file a domestic violence case on th grounds of mental cruelty/harrassment for which, if proven, the husband can be punished with imprisonment and fine. But when there is a case of mental harrassment by wife and in laws to a husband, the husband cannot file any case except for divorce. And even if the divorce has been granted, it’s the husband who has to pay alimony. But if proven false the wife can walk free without any punishment or fine. This is not only unjustified but the husband has to face the social humiliation along with loss of hard earned money to the cruel intention of the wife and in laws. This petition is to bring a change in the legal system to amend the section 498 a , in which the words husband and wife should be replaced by spouse in the whole section.
