review of automatic arrest in 498a cases

In a recent judgment the Hon'ble Supreme Court has decided to review the easrlier Two Bench decision on ban on automatic arrest in Sec. 498A cases. Experts and the persons, who experienced the problems of arrest in 498A cases may like to post their opinions on pros & cons of the automatic arrest on registration of complaint under sec. 498A, if reintroduced. The opinions may please be expressed on the aspects of the -- 1) Violation of Right to equality; 2) Violarion of Right to freedom; 3) Violation of Right to constitutional remedies, specifically denial of opportunity to defend the case by the accused; and 4) Use and abuse of power by the police in such cases.

In deed avry good  question! But nobody has come forward to express his opinion for the past two days of the query by the querist.

It seems even the people suffering with the trauma of implications of 498A are afraid of expressing their opinions. Probably, they think, "what cannot be cured, must be endured."

But, it is not understood, why the experts community of shying of sharing their experience, as they would have gained by fighting such cases of their clients. Why they are shy of using the consitutional freedom of speech?


Do people in India have such little brains? Even though it's well known that most 498as are false, there are people out there who think automatic arrests should be reintroduced? And people are so ridiculous to think that the topic should be "discussed"?
