The Indian daughter-in-law (and her husband) in any family who misuses 498a against her in-laws
(since the daughter-in-law has to file the case) does so by controlling her husband for the purpose
of taking him away from his parent's home and ensuring her own financial security. She is simply
following the philosophy of the NCW and feminist groups. Whatever, these daughter-in-laws are doing
is no different from other women who file false 498a cases against their husbands who refuse to
move out of their parent's house because they do not have enough money to maintain the lifestyle
that the wife wants. Some daughter-in-laws want to teach their in-law's a lesson because they did not
give in to her demands or refused to tolerate her abusive behavior.
The NCW and feminist groups have brainwashed society into believing that women cannot file false
dowry/rape/sexual harassment cases. However, they forget that good and bad behavior is not gender
specific. It is either inherited or environmental in origin. Therefore, all genders (men, women
and even the indeterminate-gender groups) irrespective of their sexual leanings, are equally capable
of lying, cheating, abusive behavior and even murder. The only difference being that abusive women
are more likely to get away with most crimes by simply turning on the tears and playing the role
of the victim while making the real victim appear to be the abuser. All the TV serials that
reflect what goes on in society have female characters conniving, manipulating, filing false rape and
dowry accusations, committing adultery and even murder with absolutely no remorse for their
actions, and never being punished for their actions. Instead, many innocents are shown going to jail or a
Is this not the true face of some Indian women of the 21st century?
The NCW and all feminists are against the patriarchal joint family system (NB. the feminists are
against the husband who wants to look after his parents but have no problems with the wife who
wants only her parents to be looked after by her husband).
Initially, they wanted that the wife should get all her husband's and in-law's
assets/inheritance just because she supposedly shared her husband's bed. Now, the NCW and feminists want that
right to extend to any woman who shares the man's bed. However, with young Indian girls starting to
sleep around at an early age, it remains to be seen how the NCW and feminists plan to help them
obtain all material comforts for a life of luxury without having to lift a finger. Thanks to the
preachings of the NCW and feminists, educated girls and married young women from middle class families
resort to prostitution as time pass or an easy way to make lots of money to satisfy their
physical needs and physical comforts.
Over the last few decades, the NCW and feminist groups have been at the helm of the manipulation
of Indian society. I wonder which dark abyss are they leading it into?
Couples framing parents with dowry
NEW DELHI: In a shocking trend, some middle class married women, in league with their husbands, are foisting false dowry charges on their in-laws to pressure them to part with their wealth, a Delhi Police official says.
According to K.C. Dwivedi, deputy commissioner of police of the Crime Against Women Cell, some married couples hatch a plan to harass and threaten the husbands parents in order to get a share of the wealth and also to force the elderly parents to live separately.
It seems they do not want to stay with their parents but are only concerned about their share in the wealth, Dwivedi said.
He added that in the past two months, the police had registered around five such cases where married couples framed false charges against their parents
We found that in each of these cases the couples were not only well-educated and well-placed but came from upper middle class backgrounds, he said.
Most of the couples were part of a joint family system and wanted to live separately as a nuclear unit and also avoid looking after the parents.
According to Dwivedi, the first such case was registered earlier this year. The police discovered later that the young couple had framed their parents.
We came to know the truth when we took help from local police to find out more about the family, said Dwivedi.
We normally seek out local police in all cases, and it was a routine exercise for us. But the report surprised us.
Counsellors dealing with the case also suggested that the couple was not speaking the truth, the officer said. The cases have not been solved and continue to be pending. We are trying for reconciliation between family members, he added.
Kiran Walia, chairperson of the Delhi Commission of Women, a government body, said: It is shameful and disgraceful that children are using the anti-dowry law against their own parents. Walia said the trend was due to rising materialism in society and lack of respect for the elderly. She said the police should take strict action against couples attempting to misuse the law.
It is because of such people that others blame all girls of misusing the anti-dowry law, she said.
Sachit Dalal of the Save Indian Family Foundation, an NGO, said there were many cases of the anti-dowry law being misused by people.
These cases are just some more examples.
According to Dalal, it was easier to put pressure on the elderly because of their age. He said his Foundation has as members about 650 people who have faced dowry-related harassment.
Delhi Police registers around 8,000 cases of dowry harassment every year.
