MyNation Suggestions on Shakti Bill
This is in reference to Government of Maharashtra, Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Application L. A. BILL No. LI OF 2020 which is also called THE SHAKTI CRIMINAL LAW (MAHARASHTRA AMENDMENT) BILL, 2020 (Extracts from the Indian Penal Code,1860) (45 of 1860).
“Article 14 of the Constitution of India provides for equality before the law or equal protection of the laws within the territory of India. The State shall not deny to any person equality before the law or the equal protection of the laws within the territory of India”
Law should not be biased towards anyone nor should it be made for specific gender, as both women as well as men are raped. In today’s world women too are capable to rape men, as happened recently in Sangli.
With one incident of rape, Indian law makers term all men as rapists. Laws are made under the influence of Women organizations to appease them or to capture the minds of the vote bank.
As per CHAPTER II of Shakti bill – Amendment of section 166A of 45 of 1860 which says
“deliberately fails to obey the specific directions given by the police officer in the investigation of offences punishable under section 326A, section 326B, section 376, section 376A, section 376AB, section 376B,”

MyNation suggests, No person should be compelled to obey the order of any police officer/Authority unless there is concrete evidence against him. Concrete evidence means material evidence, not just the statement of the complainant.
As per CHAPTER II of Shakti Bill – “Insertion of section 175A in 45 of 1860. Says Criminal Charges Failure to share data for police investigation“
MyNation suggest, no person should be forced to give his personal details unless there is any material evidence against him.
As per CHAPTER II of Shakti Bill – “354E. Whoever intentionally does any act to create a sense of danger, intimidation or fear to a woman, in addition to insulting her modesty, by any act, deed or words including…”
MyNation suggest, anyone can be intimidated and harassed by an act, deed or words, so the word “woman” should be replaced with the word “person”. Nowadays it is a trend in women to threaten men with false rape or molestation cases, thus misusing the law.
As per CHAPTER III of Shakti Bill – “37A. Every social media platform or internet or mobile telephony data provider, including any intermediary or custodian shall be bound to share any data, including the document or electronic record to the Investigation Officer on demand, for the purpose of investigation of offence“
MyNation suggest, No person should be compelled to prove his innocence or give any details unless there is material evidence against him indicating his direct involvement in the matter or proved in the court of justice.
As per CHAPTER III of Shakti Bill – “Amendment of section 100 of 2 of 1974.”

MyNation suggests, Any search warrant must be issued only after authenticating the claim for charges.
As per CHAPTER III of Shakti Bill – “Insertion of section 182A in 45 of 1860. Punishment for false complaint or false information to public servant of certain offences.”
MyNation suggests, The punishment for false accusation should be a minimum of three years. a fair compensation should be paid to the person who was falsely accused.
Any person who incites a child to make false charges against another under protection of children from sexual offences act should be sentenced to a minimum imprisonment of three years. A fair compensation should be paid to the person who was falsely accused.
Even after the above suggestions, if the laws are made gender biased then we assume that authority has succumbed to the pressure of Feminists and Women organization and accept to divide the society on gender or to capture vote bank.
