Mr. 'HUSBAND' you are arrested!!

"Supreme Court Judge Deepak Verma while hearing a matrimonial case said “Married men should forget about their freedom”; in another case Justice Markandey Katju said “Do what the wife tells you and never question her authority; if wife says turn right, turn right and if she says turn left, then turn left”. 

But being non-bailable, this law has a major loop hole of arresting all accused without investigations including senior citizens, minors, mothers and sisters of husbands. 498a and other sections were soon frequently misused as a negotiating tool for alimony in a failed marriage, with no dowry in reality. Misuse later became a standard malpractice. Lawyers and police too joined the wife in the bargain, and the husband was reduced to an ATM machine. 
         Wife's started throwing out rough figures on the faces, extorting, abusing, humiliating lame husband's. After a traumatised failed marriage, a hapless chap has to deal with social pressure, names such as wife beater and sometimes impotent too.Left with no emergency exits, no doors to bang upon, only way out is fulfill never ending demands of the lady he earlier dreamt of. 
        Most Indian women used to consider marriage as a ‘once in a life time’ activity, but now, what could have changed to twist the whole story? The BUMPER PRIZE! Yes the bumper prize that one could win if they break the marriage rather staying in the relationship. Various definitions of  lottery like alimony, maintenance, residence rights, child support etc seems to be more attractive to a fairly good number of women, regardless of their age, than immaterial things like relationship, love, family, parenting etc. In order to achieve this ‘treasure’, all they need to do is to frame their husbands as ‘cruel’; and this is just a matter of making a local call.
      The question here is are you ready to be a harassed pathi? OR wag your macho tail and say "yes ji, yes ji??" when 498a holds your nerves!! I am in a dilemma after reading framed cases of dowry harassment. What if my wife frames in 498a? This question would run down my mind when i shut off the world.

MY FAQS: Always goes unanswered!!  :

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 entitles wife for a 50% share in property. What kind of equality is this?
