Madhu Kishwar on 498a

"But this in itself amounts to using the law as a weapon of intimidation rather than a tool of justice. I would condone its use thus, if it were true that lawyers used it judiciously to effect dignified settlements for women with legitimate complaints. But in a good number of cases, least in metropolitan cities lawyers are actively distorting the spirit and purpose of the law."

-Madhu Kishwar on 498a.
