whereby it clarified that gifts are not dowry

We support Supreme Courts recent Judgment whereby it clarified that gifts are not dowry (as per news report in TOI)Demand for Gift after marriage is not Dowry Says Supreme Court of India
The Supreme Court has ruled that demand for money and presents from parents of a married girl at the time of birth of her child or for other ceremonies, as is prevalent in society, may be depreciable but cannot be categorized as dowry to make it a punishable offence. This means, if a daughter-in-law is being harassed for customary gifts by parents-in-law, then they could be booked under ordinary penal provisions but not under the tough anti-dowry laws providing stringent punishments. Acquitting the parents-in-law of a woman who had accused them of harassing her for dowry, a Bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat and S Sathasivam took help of a 2001 judgment of SC to say that not all demands from the parents-in-law could be categorized as dowry under the Dowry Prohibition Act. It said though the Act covers payment of money or articles during, before or after marriage by the girls parent to her in-laws, the cash and presents given had to have a link with the marriage to become objectionable in law. Other payments which are customary payments, for example given at the time of birth of a child or other ceremonies as are prevalent in different societies, are not covered by the expression dowry, said Justice Pasayat, writing the judgment for the Bench.
A Haryana trial court had continued the dowry harassment charges against the woman's husband while acquitting the parents-in-law, the married sister and brother of the husband. Though the high court allowed quashing of charges against the sister and brother, it said the parents-in-law were liable to be proceeded against. The apex court said that when the trial court had held that an attempt had been made by the woman to rope in as many relatives of her husband as possible, the HC should have given some reasons while reversing a well-reasoned order.
It said judicial discipline demanded the HCs to give clear reasons when reversing a trial court order backed by facts. Reasons substitute subjectivity by objectivity. The emphasis on recording reasons is that if the decision reveals the 'inscrutible face of the sphinx', it can, by its silence, render it virtually impossible for the courts to perform their appellate function or exercise the power of judicial review in adjudicating the validity of the decision, the Bench said.

Prior to this ruling, our lawmakers as well as the radical feminist organizations had never opened their eyes or tried to understand the basis behind the same, and the result was more and more misuse of Dowry Laws. Thus far, we have been silent witnesses to the extortion of money or obtaining custody and a legal advantage in the divorce case in more than 98% of the false dowry complaints (as per the court records), where it is the wifes family that is demanding and taking money from the husbands family in open court (in return for them agreeing to have the husband/his family released from jail) and the same is not considered a crime.

The bride and grooms family in every culture around the world give gifts. Dowry itself is a bogus word that did not exist in India prior to the arrival of the British who had been practicing it for centuries (without a single dowry complaint having been filed in England). However, the word Dowry has been misused by the radical Indian feminist organizations and the greedy/money minded girls families who hide behind the word Dowry and cheat their own daughter/sisters basic right on Streedhan and equal right in parental property and always treat the husbands family as a free ATM machine.

The Save Family Foundation and their associate organizations, and even Ms. Madhu Kiswar, have continuously demanded and urged that if any one harasses others for any money or property the same should be termed as Extortion or Blackmail. However, our lawmakers failed to accept that. Finally, the Supreme Court of India has understood that each and every dispute should not be termed as Dowry Harassment which is one small step towards stopping the Legal Terrorism and rampant Misuse of 498A, DV act and CRPC125 maintenance act.

Every 4 minutes in India an innocent person (who never demanded any dowry or money from the wife/daughter-in-law) including old mothers/pregnant sisters/children are facing false and fabricated Dowry cases and sent behind bars without any evidence (since no evidence is required and 498A is non-bailable). Despite the Law commission and various judges recommendations to make 498A a bailable offence, our lawmakers have not made any effort to save the innocent people who are being victimized by the abusive women and their families. We must stop this legal terrorism (as termed by the Supreme Court of India) by our radical women organizations that openly advocates and legitimizes adultery by the wife and killing of the unborn child (against the husbands wishes).

We applaud the recent judgment of the Supreme Court of India whereby it clarifies that gifts are not dowry. We request the Supreme Court of India to set up an in-depth review by a panel of happily married lawyers, retired judges, elders and representatives from the mens organizations that should also look into the complaints regarding the misuse of these laws. All laws that affect families should also take into account that mothers and sisters are women too, and it takes two to tango.

The Honble Supreme Court in Batra v Batra rightly decided that the right should only available to a woman in a household owned by the husband and not in the household owned by the in laws, even though it may have been the shared household. In a country where the joint family pattern of residence is then norm, any other judgment virtually gives a license to women to throw out senior citizens from the own home with the help of a bad law. Every family has a right to live free from abuse. Denial of the right to reside in their own home for senior citizens is one of the most extreme forms of abuse, rendering the parents and grandparents homeless and insecure. There are numerous concerted efforts being made among the radical womens groups to abuse these badly drafted gender baised laws.

We, the undersigned, therefore support the Supreme Court of India whereby it clarified that gifts are not dowry and request the following:

Review the complaints of all those crying of misuse of these laws and by taking appropriate steps in the Supreme Court of India.
Appoint full time qualified Investigating Officers (who should be held responsible if any misuse of the law is reported) and notifies Service Providers and medical facilities.
Impose legal sanctions all women (and their helpers) who are misusing the law.
We request all of you to sign this e petition to support the above-mentioned ruling of the Supreme Court of India. Please write letters separately to the Chief Justice of India with copies to us:

We also request you to forward it further amongst your partners, networks and friends.

The ugly truth really nowadays are that wives and their relatives use laws, which were made for protection of women, as their weapon to spread legal terrorism, to extort meaningless amount of money as ransom for avoiding arrest by filing false dowry cases against them, you can see the history if a newly wedded wife complaints, she would claim husband is an impotent, after passing some months or years the allegation becomes dowry harassment, domestic violence is so freely put in all cases as you say a vegetable vendor to put some coriander with some green chillies for free in the vegetables bought by you,my wife accused me of dowry harassment and domestic violence charges, whereas i hadn't even touched her without keeping in mind about her consent and comfortability, reason of her differences between us is her mother that's why i was washing my clothes with my own hands on her directions, they were demanding divorce, permanent custody of our son child, thirty lacks of rupees as ransom, and reason for all this was just that i had not attended a marriage function of her mama's daughter, she left 7 days earlier saying if you will not come to attend it i will head for divorce and the only way for her family to get their wishes fulfilled was to file a false complaint, i was neither eager nor able to fulfill their demands as a result i was arrested on 4th of June and got bail on the 6th June after they got all my household items all furniture which i bought 4-5 years earlier before my marriage, they left nothing even salt, pepper, spices, my undergarments, my clothes, soaps, detergent, they robbed everything they could, and are showing themselves as a very reputed persons in HIND CINEMA premises of kaithal, Haryana but reality sights among them who faces it, kisi ne kaha hai " aap mare bina swarg kisne dekha " .at least there should be a fair investigation with proofs before arresting to defame a husband which is his right of humanity, and justice should be done looking it genderlessly.

I really appreciate and thanks the Hon'ble judges for the recent judgement where the Hon'ble Supreme Court ordered all the district courts not to arrest immediately any person on filing of FIR u/s 498 A. This, I think, will and should prevent breaking of families on the frivolous complaint by the wife.

I really appreciate for the law to take its action against the misusers and also request for amendment in law if possible that anyone who is herself guilty should be punished at least half of her husband etc punishment by revoking counter cases by court itself so that law may become fair and unneccary wastage of times in court could be avoided. Law may take its course in speedy manner and without any gender unequality and harser punishment for the culprits. However, regarding recent above mentinoned judgement, i appreciate for it.
