The news item reported at Section 498A Causes losses worth 4500 crores annually showcases a big leap of faith for Men's Rights Activists (MRAs) in India. The Law Commission of Karnataka (a state in India) invited representatives of the Men's Rights Organization - Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF) to know their views on Section 498A - the most draconian law of Indian Penal Code.
After detailed discussions with MRA - SIFF, the Chairman of Law Commission of Karnataka requested a detailed report on the changes needed in Section 498A. SIFF accepted the challenge and prepared the report titled, "The Perils of Section 498A - A Report on changes required" and also a report on Alimony titled "The Rationalization of Alimony Laws". Both the reports have been accepted by the Law Commission of Karnataka.
This is a big leap of faith for the MRAs and a big shift in attitude for the Government as it has now started taking views of MRAs in law making and law amending process. The process has begun, the dialogue has started. Today, it is the Law Commission of Karnataka; tomorrow it may be other facets of the Government. MRAs are in.
