There are over 49 sections as per Indian Law wherein a case can be registered without investigation, and it takes years to get a verdict in the courtroom, by the time the man if innocent has already lost his dignity, family and career. The book takes you on a journey of hitherto untold truths behind the drama when such fake cases are filed, about how the Law which was made to safeguard all behaves like a jealous mistress. Women protective laws were made to safeguard the women from age-old oppression, but these laws were made when women were mere house dwellers confined to the four walls of their homes and unable to voice their plights, but as times changed the modern woman of today has achieved equal if not a superior status with the men in their lives, their abilities and responses have also developed multifold. But the law hasn’t imbibed this change in the scenario where the hunted can also become the hunter, and this provides the perfect hotbed for a premeditated conspiracy to exact revenge on a spouse and also to render irrevocable damage to his survival and financial security, the author has given voice to the muted stories which never caught attention in the social dogma that domestic violence is all about women at the hands of men, there has to be a shift, Law has to be inclusive and it’s high time that we acknowledge the need to rethink and amend it accordingly so it wouldn’t be misused, or the very Law that protects shall become the noose around the necks of the unassuming Innocents.
