Anti-dowry law makes it wife-biased, discriminatory,and poorly formulated. A complaint from your wife or her family member can land husband and his entire family in jail without any investigation.
"The power of the Executive to cast a man into prison without formulating any charge known to the law, and particularly to deny him the judgment of his peers, is in the highest degree odious and is the foundation of all totalitarian government whether Nazi or Communist."

Add murder charge provision to dowry deaths, SC tells courts
Terrorists are treated better then Men in India, the Supreme Court has said many things to the Government regarding 498a, has the government done anything, NO! Yet now that the Supreme Courts says add Murder to the list of Dowry related deaths, its a done deal. This is called playing into the hands of the Feminazi's and the Corrupt Indian judiciary. Will the Supreme Court ask the courts to award Death Penalty to Women who Murder there Husbands?
In the backdrop of growing number of dowry deaths, the Supreme Court directed all courts in the country to add the charge of murder against the accused so that death penalty could be awarded in such heinous cases.
"We further direct all trial courts in India to ordinarily add Section 302 (murder) to the charge of section 304B so that death sentence can be imposed in such heinous and barbaric crimes against women," a Bench of Justices Markandeya Katju and Gyan Sudha Mishra said in an order.
Under the exisiting provision, dowry death is registered under Section 304B IPC entailing a maximum punishment of life imprisonment(minimum seven years) but there is no provision for capital punishment.
The apex court passed the order while issuing a notice to convict Thathamsetty Suresh of Andhra Pradesh asking him why he should not be awarded death sentence for killing his wife and another convict Rajbir alias Raju as to why the punishment of of life imprisonment awarded to him by the sessions court in Rohtak, Haryana, should not be restored.
While in the case of Suresh, the sessions court had awarded life imprisonment which was confirmed by the High Court under Section 302 IPC, in the case of Rajbir, the charge was under Section 304B.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court had earlier reduced the life imprisonment to 10 year. Rajbir's mother was awarded two years RI.
However, since Rajbir's mother was 80 years old, the apex court ordered her release on bail.
