Indonesian lawmakers unanimously passed a sweeping new criminal code on Tuesday that criminalizes sex outside marriage,
Its a good move by Indonesia, when Women and feminists cry foul. as they want to marry one man to pay her all bills but sleep with lovers, if opposed she can file for huge alimony.
Why anyone want to play sorry sleep with other partner why they get marry? Ask Sarvapalli Parasar advocate of Nellore.
The new Law, which also applies to foreign residents and tourists, bans cohabitation before marriage, apostasy, and provides punishments for insulting the president or expressing views counter to the national ideology.
“All have agreed to ratify the (draft changes) into law,” said lawmaker Bambang Wuryanto, who led the parliamentary commission in charge of revising the colonial-era code. “The old code belongs to Dutch heritage … and is no longer relevant.”
On 7th May 2018, the Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina of Bangladesh brought about an amendment to the Dowry Prohibition Act, 1980 of Bangladesh.
The Women and Children Affairs Ministry placed the draft ‘Dowry Prohibition Bill 2018’ before the weekly cabinet meeting to update the 1980 Act, which had been previously amended through ordinances in ’82, ’84 and ’86. As per the new provision (Section 5) of the proposed draft law, the punishment for filing any false case will be maximum five years’ imprisonment or maximum Tk 50,000 as fine or both, media reported. Another provision has been changed in respect to the specific amount of monetary punishment stipulated under the law for demanding or giving dowry. Previously the Dowry Prohibition Act of Bangladesh did not specify a monetary punishment for demanding dowry. According to the new provision, any person demanding or giving dowry will have to face maximum five years’ imprisonment, which will not be less than one year’s jail term or maximum Tk 50,000 as fine or both.
To keep matters in perspective, it is important to note that even prior to this amendment, the victims of false cases were not defenceless. Section 250 (1) and (2) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1898 of Bangladesh empowers the Magistrate, to punish anyone who, in the opinion of the Magistrate had filed a false and frivolous or vexatious case. Section 211 of the Bangladesh Penal Code, 1860 states that,
“Whoever, with intent to cause injury to any person, institutes or causes to be instituted any criminal proceeding against that person, or falsely charges any person with having committed an offence, knowing that there is no just or lawful ground for such proceeding or charge against that person, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to two years, or with fine, or with both.” Furthermore Section 17 of Women and Children Repression Prevention Act 2000 also punishes a complainant who files false case knowing there is no ground for filing a case against the accused with rigorous imprisonment of not more than 7 years and a fine. Hence, victims of false cases in Bangladesh were not without remedies and this added extra remedy does not act as an extraordinary good for victims of false cases.
Both Bangladesh and Indonesia, try to save marriage a holy sacrament by stopping adultery and false dowry cases but in India,
MARRIED WOMEN ARE NOT PUNISHED FOR ADULTRY, OR FILLING FALSE CASES.
they have Indian Government, Judiciary and Women ministry support, My Body My Choice, she can bring home lovers and sleep on husband bed but husband can’t stop her, stopping her is cruelty as per Indian Law.
INDIAN WOMEN CAN FILE NOT ONLY FALSE DOWRY CASE BUT ANY CASE ON KNOWN OR UNKNOWN PERSONS WITHOUT ANY PROOF AND POLICE BOUND TO TAKE COMPLAINT
As per NCRB almost 70% Dowry/IPC 498A cases are settled in acquittal that means, 70% cases are FALSE, but not a single women punished in the history of India for filling false cases.
SO NOW READERS DECIDE WHICH COUNTRY IS BETTER and WISE.
