    now a days, females are misusing their right. Because of a simple argument in the house, on instigation of their parents, women started to filed case for dowry and others. I don;t understand India has done so much progress, why still our law is blind for men. Why u are giving slogan that every body is equal. In Indian law , men are not equal to women.
    Either men is right or not, if a female file a complain against him, men is always wrong….indian law don;t listen to the men. Females have priority on these , so they are misusing it.
