Very good decision indeed. The court's time is very valuable. The petitioner was repeatedly advised not to ask the relief, which the court cannot give and whatever the petitioner was asking falls within the domain of "legislative functioning" and the Parliament only can give such relief. But thick headed people continue to argue in the court despite the court's advice and create obstruction in administration of justice, they have to be penalized and if penalty is not enough they shall be sent to behind the bars for disrespecting the courts of law and creating obstructions in administration of justice.
The very supreme court which said that there was misuse of divorce laws also said that the husbands and in-laws were going scot free under Section 304-B and instructed the police to add charge even under Section 302, if there is dowry death. That gives the scope to the prosecution, if they fail to prove the proximity between the death of wife and demand of dowry immediately before the death of wife, now, after inclusion of Section 302, the accused can be tried for murder. some of the members, who repeatedly posted on various threads about theSC's observations on misuse of dowry laws, "legal terrorism" etc. are totally silent when the Supreme Court passionately describes the plight of the young married women and the injustices they met in the matrimonial home by husband and in-laws.
Now the male prejudiced people started to criticise even the Domestic Violence Act along with Section 498-A, which has been under operation in hundreds of countries in all the continents. The world is recognizing that it has not treated fairly with the female population and hence Domestic Violence Act has been brought into force in several countries. India is not exception. It has not treated its male population unfairly by bringing Domestic violence Act. If some of the Indian males want special privileges to treat the female population with utmost cruelty in the name of religion and culture, sorry, the will not be possible. The Indian male does not get rest and go on to protest against such protective law, which provides shelter, bare necessity compensation and medical expenses to the wronged wife. Some of the indian male want permission to continue to harass the women physically, mentally and econimically. That is why they are protesting the above Gujarat HC judgement. I advise them to go to appeal against this order in the Supreme Court and get higher penalty with their pestering and untolerable attitude and if the matter is listed before some Supreme Court Judges, they may also face the threat of imprisonment.
