Law 498a: Please, every Indian person Must speak up on this!
As this year closes, the the issue of violence on women in India stands at a crossroad. And we really need your support on this one. All you have to do is put your comment on the post as your token support. [Every Indian person, specially if you are a woman, must speak up on this. We've got to this point largely because women in India collectively have been far too passive, for far too long!]
498A is a significant law in India that is meant to protect married women from violence inflicted on them by their husbands and in-laws. Or get justice if the women get killed. Over the last few years there has been a very powerful, wealthy, lobby of Indian men, many living outside India (married to women from India), who have funded a strong anti 498A drive and have managed to put the law before the Indian administration for amendment. [If you type 498a into google these people have more or less hogged the front two pages. They've aggressively taken over the net].
The 50 Million Missing Campaign will be sending this memorandum (letter below) to the government Committee considering this amendment, and we are protesting this amendment. We request that you put your comments in the boxes below supporting our protest.Your email address will not be published.
