Women empowering penal provisions of IPC are now challenged by women of our country

According to a news report of "The Tribune" a day after the national Capital went abuzz with the women empowerment program, the All India Forgotten Women's Association, on behalf of many such other aggrieved mothers and sisters of our country, has now raised questions against the provisions of 498 A of IPC and Domestic Violence Act, 2005, alleging that the provisions of these laws discriminate against the mothers and sisters of accused husbands, without their roll in commission of any such offences under those provisions of laws. Is it not a time to review these provisions to prevent the misuse of laws ? it it not welcome to see that all these women empowering penal provisions are now challenged by women of our country suo moto on the eve of World Women Day ?!!
