- We have always maintained that laws are essential in matrimonial disputes, however, criminalising of matrimonial laws have only made things worse for the husband
- Already our laws are heavily rested in favour of women and when there is involvement of police in personal matters, the man and his family virtually have no say
- FIRs and complaints are registered against men on mere word of wives, leaving husbands and their families to run around for securing bail
- Government of India must re-look at all these age old laws, and design equal parameters for both parties to secure divorce and justice fairly
