Thoughtful points Last 20+ yrs, articles/news portrayed in most media about huge “crime against women” or “dowry abuse” by radical groups is based on MAINLY police FIRs Child welfare, poverty, foeticide issues are usually largely molded to represent as “Women Issues” (women rights issue) by several radical groups There is NO law in Indian society for domestic violence against men; Therefore no record of Crime against married men or convictions Conviction rates (4%) on crime against married women is incredibly lower than police FIRs reported Just a search on google for “498a”, “legal terrorism”, husband harassment” reveals thousands of victims
