The Supreme court in India in a recent Judgement has passed the bill that Adultery is no longer a crime in the Country, but can still be a base of Divorce.
The Indian Supreme Court scrapped the 150-year old adultery law. Reading out the judgement, CJI Dipak Misra clearly stated that equality is the need of the hour. He also added that time has come when the husband should not be considered the master.
However, India’s ruling BJP government had opposed the petition, insisting that adultery should remain a criminal offence.
The colonial-era law was struck down by the Supreme Court, making it the second colonial-era law to be struck down this month, the first being the law that criminalized gay sex.
While reading out the judgement on adultery, Chief Justice Dipak Misra said that while it could be grounds for civil issues like divorce, “it cannot be a criminal offence”.
