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."

Spanish Woman held for faking kidnap to see if husband would pay
This women should have the book thrown at her, total gold digger. Dec 28, 2010
A woman who faked her own kidnap to see if her husband would pay a £20,000 ransom has been arrested after police caught her preparing to spend the money in High Street sales.
Her husband had been sent a photo on his mobile phone showing his wife's bound hands and feet, police said yesterday.
A separate text message also demanded 20,000 euros (about £20,000) for her release as well as a warning not to go to the police.
But the man ignored the warning and police launched a search for the missing woman. They put a tracking device in the bag containing the money.
They spotted her car, which they followed to a shopping mall in the town of Gandia, on the Spanish Mediterranean coast, where they discovered her.
At first, she told officers she had been released by her captors that morning, but later confessed she had staged the abduction 'to find out what her husband would be willing to do for her'.
A police statement said: 'The woman, who was travelling alone and was in perfect health, was the supposed victim of the kidnapping.'
One officer said, 'It's the New Year holidays, the sales are on and she had a suitcase full of cash with her.'
In 2008, a Spanish court jailed a woman for three-and-a-half years after she was found guilty of extortion by faking her children's kidnapping seven times.
