Author and new age classicist Anuja Chandramouli breaks down on the the case of Anurag Soni versus the State of Chhattisgarh.
The victim, who had come to the hospital three days ago for the treatment of her 10-year-old daughter, suffering from fever, was being pestered by her husband for sex.
The woman left her husband in 2018 and started living with her parents. But he kept harassing her over the phone and even threatened to throw acid on her.
If a finger is pointed, obviously facts should be studied and the matter sorted. By going all macho on the accusers, the accused weakens his own stand.
The BJP MP also claimed that he has got wide support from men across the country after he proposed it during the monsoon session in Parliament last month.
Gay rights activist Harish Iyer said the triple talaaq verdict should open people's minds to more progressive laws.
The apex court, however, sought to know as to whether Parliament debated the aspect of protecting married girls, between the age group of 15-18 years.
