The problem is that the Indian feminists seem RABID even compared with their U.S. "sisters". The article 498a allows a woman to not only have her husband arrested on her word alone, but HIS FAMILY too.
So, should a husband start to speak up (and this reflects on his relationship w/her, no?) she can have him and HIS FAMILY locked up for MONTHS.
I have seen encouraging news on this front though. See, in America the feminists are more subtle and seem to be working on the "boiling frog" theory.
Boiling Frog Theory: Throw a frog into boiling water and it will jump out. Put a frog in a pot of water and slowly raise the tempurature until boiling/death and it will allow itself to be cooked.
Why do I mention this? Because the Indian feminists have tossed their men into boiling waters and it's so blatant, arrogant, and obvious that the general public is starting to notice it.
