This article is based on hypocrisy. On one hand, the proponents of the DV Act, pretend to fight for equal rights for wives. However, they have forgotten that equal rights bring equal duties too. DVA assumes that wives are always victims. Nobody talks of the wife's right to property from her own parents. This route conveniently reaches a place where it is called dowry. Indira Jaising's comment "Being thrown out of the house is one of the commonest forms of violence against women." is the truth, albeit being committed by the wife's own parents against their daughter!!!! !. But nobody wants to acknowledge this fact. Society has found it convenient to blame husbands and their parents.
Indira Jaising again speaks the truth without realising it..""When you use the act to gain access to property, you are badmouthed as a gold-digger. But gaining access to economic resources, including property, is a legitimate part of the act.".. YES.. GAINING ACCESS to economic resources... et al has become a legitimate part of the ACT of getting MARRIED by modern indian wives..AND by all means they are doing it, actively helped by disgusting laws and official machinery.
