Make marital rape a crime in India

This petition had 9 supporters

Under an exception to section 375 of the Indian Penal code (IPC), a husband can rape his wife and face no criminal charges.

"Sexual intercourse by a man with his own wife, the wife not being under fifteen years of age, is not rape." 

Such an outdated and outrageous rule has no place in today's India and ought to be abolished immediately.
