This is fantastic. But we also need to have counter laws that protect genuine women who are facing violence at home from women who fake domestic violence cases against their spouses. There must be harsh penalties meted out to such women. Not so much for men but this must be done for women. False cases against the men sours the system against women. And the system is run by men. We must remember that. We need the system to be fair and not get jaded by fake cases.
According to the Delhi Commission of Women (DCW), “between April 2013 and July 2014, of the 2,753 complaints of rape, only 1,287 cases were found to be true, and the remaining 1,464 cases were found to be false” (Source : Indiatoday.in). So what did happen to those women who filed false cases? No idea. But what must have happened to genuine rape cases locked in between those false one? You get the idea.
