Scrap 498a

This petition had 217 supporters

Passed by Indian Parliament in 1983, Indian Penal Code 498A, is a criminal law (not a civil law) which is defined as follows,

“Whoever, being the husband or the relative of the husband of a woman, subjects such woman to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine. The offence is Cognizable, non-compoundable and non-bailable. 

This law is misused by women's or wive's to harass husband and their families.

One of the most biased law in India.
Law which breaks family
Law which destroys the future of a child.
Words are less to describe this legal terrorism.
