With the demand for land increasing,its prices increase too easing out the poor who end up in nearby slums Yet the class element has not affected the political mindset of Indian Muslims going by the voting patterns in the last Lok Sabha elections No community seems to have been more influenced by urbanisation According to a CSDS-Lokniti post-poll survey which will soon appear in a special issue of Studies in Indian Politics 326 per cent of Muslims voted Congress in rural constituencies 429 per cent in towns and cities and 505 per cent in the metros Which means that the more urbanised they are the more Congress-oriented they are as voters I would hypothesise that this virtual regrouping is a metaphor of the ghetto — urban Muslims join forces irrespective of class occupation and level of education in strategic voting Numbers are the best protection vis-à-vis riotersin the ghetto and vis-à-vis the BJP in the polling stations And if such a mindsetis more developed in the city it is probably because communal violence has been more prevalent in this context This state of things may change In 2013 violence spread in the rural parts of Muzaffarnagar district resulting in new forms of village-based ghettoisation a process that may be repeated in Bodoland too Growing urbanisation is creating a continuum between towns and villages giving rise to “rurbanisation” which blurs the differences between the two worldsin terms of communal politics as well The Muslim ghettos enclaves or slums that have developed in Indian cities may however retain a distinctive feature: they remain more connected to the Gulf countries from where family members send huge remittances This Gulf connection may take the separation process to its logical conclusion: the development of a de facto sense of extra-territoriality at the expense of national integration and citizenship This exit option is not uncommon among “second-class city-zens” The writer is senior research fellow at CERI-Sciences

understand the logic behind the law Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code was introduced in 1983 at a time when it became clear that the Dowry Prohibition Act 1961 had failed not only to prevent dowry but also to stop the violence associated with the institution Cruelty by a husband or his relatives was made an offence punishable with imprisonment for a period of up to three years and made cognisable Ordinarily offences punishable with imprisonment of less than seven years are non-cognisable but if the legislature feels that such an offence is a social evil it is made cognisable Offences against women fall into this category Outraging the modesty of a woman using obscene words and gestures and now after 2013 voyeurism stalking acid attacks and sexual harassment are all punishable with less than seven years but cognisable Cruelty is defined as wilful conduct likely to drive a woman to commit suicide or cause grave harm or injury to her life or health mental or physical It includes harassment of a woman to coerce her or her relatives to meet an unlawful demand It is obvious that the threshold of behaviour required to constitute cruelty is high and so there is an inbuilt safeguard in the section itself for invoking it What is noteworthy is that the offence is not confined to the giving and taking of dowry but extends to all conduct that causes mental or physical injury of a high order to the woman by her husband The word “harassment” itself refers to continuous conduct that causes mental anguish to the woman To qualify as cruelty the conduct must be of a grave nature but to place it so high as to expect police intervention only when there is an actual attempt at suicide by the woman would be to defeat the purpose of the section Hence the section is and must be invoked when women are oppressed in the matrimonial home Denial of food locking her up and preventing communication with the outside world and repeated threats to drive her out of the matrimonial home all qualify as mental cruelty In 1986 the IPC was again amended to introduce Section 304B which said that if the death of a married woman occurs in unnatural circumstances within seven years of the marriage and it is shown that just before her death she was treated with cruelty in relation to a demand for dowry it shall be presumed that her husband or relatives caused the death We must appreciate that the two sections are part of a composite scheme — one is invoked before the woman dies and is preventive in nature and the other after she is dead Surely the purpose of law must be to keep the woman alive If Section 498A were properly invoked we would not see the number of dowry deaths that we continue to see today Our law reports are full of cases of husbands and their family members convicted for dowry deaths No court has ever suggested that the dead woman lied or misused the law as the dead body is proof of the cruelty she faced Judgments under Section 304B are full of exhortations by judges to parents-in-law to treat daughters-in-law as human beings condemning the institution of dowry However when it comes to women who are alive and using Section 498A judges are quick to dismiss them as “disgruntled wives” How does one explain this hurt for the dead and condemnation for the living Could it be that the very use of Section 498A in the exercise of one’s right to stay alive is seen as a misuse of the law Is this not an attempt to intimidate women into not using the law A denial of access to justice And what does one understand by the expression “disgruntled wife” The Supreme Court’s July 2 judgment in Arnesh Kumar vs the State of Bihar offers statistics of the high rate of acquittals as evidence that these wives have misused the law When faced with an acquittal rate of 93 per cent the court ought to have been alerted to the fact that the prosecution was not properly concluded Instead by inverted logic these statistics are offered as evidence that these were false cases brought by disgruntled wives A high rate of acquittal can result from a botched investigation the benefit of doubt given to the accused or plain bias against women accessing the law Add to this the fact that the SC itself has encouraged settlements under Section 498A making a non-compoundable offence compoundable Many acquittals could be women turning “hostile” due to pressure from family or settlements The point is without analysing the cause of acquittals sympathy for the husband’s family is misplaced Women are not particularly fond of criminal law nor interested in sending their in-laws to jail any more than other aggrieved persons The law of bail is the same for offences punishable with imprisonment below seven years and above It is also the same for “disgruntled wives” and those who are cheated beaten or murdered So one fails to see why wives have been cast as vindictive in accessing criminal law Civil law is notoriously expensive If anything
