False case not only destroys someone’s life, but also weakens our belief in Judicial system.
This is one person narration of how he became victim of one-sided view of the society. We don’t know what actually happened, but there are many similar cases. It is always important to verify the details before believing someone. Here is the story of a victim as told to Humans of Bombay:
“My wife left me a few years ago, accusing me of beating her. She was part of this ‘Mahila Mandal’ which would make sure that whenever she went to file a complaint, the police would lock me in for the night, without any proof and beat me.
Truth is, I’ve never raised a hand on her – she was educated, but I’m an uneducated man making paintings and earning enough to live happily…but not luxuriously. Finally, we separated 10 years ago. I raised 2 of our sons, while she didn’t even come for any of their weddings. I just want to say that while some men do rape, beat and abuse women – not all men are the same and if an accusation is made – atleast wait to hear the truth before beating him and throwing him out of society.”
