Bangalore : In a press release from harassed husbands, banded together under National Family Harmony Society, and led by P. Suresh, Union Law Minister (for gender neutrality) M. Veerappa Moily, has come under criticism for his anti-husband stance in the proposed Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill coming up in Lok Sabha soon. The society attacked Moily for going against his own promise of making laws “gender neutral”, by bringing the amendment for Divorcé in a bill placed before the Upper House (RS). The change refers to “irretrievable breakdown of Marriage” favouring wives only. The amendment, Suresh claimed, exposed a husband to the whims and fancies of his wife and her decision to seek divorce, resulting in social disharmony. He explained that Indian Marriage Law excludes the wife as a cause of marital discord in a marriage of 2 adults.
