Adultery in Indian Penal Code

In India Laws related to Adultery is also very biased. Only a man can be convicted for adultery. A woman cannot be convicted under adultery law. The law states that women are always victims of adultery. Any person with some common sense would understand that this view endorsed in the Indian Law books is not correct. Women are equal participants, propagators and perpetuators in adulterous relationships.

The law needs to change so that either both man and woman can be convicted for adultery or make adultery non punishable. In both cases there would be balance in the law in terms of gender.
