CPI(M) leader and AIDWA patron Brinda Karat said, “It is disappointing that in 2022, we can still have a judicial opinion which holds that a marriage license can be equated to sex without consent, whereas sex without consent is rape — plain and simple. A marriage license cannot be a substitute for a woman’s consent.”

Justice Rajiv Shakdher of Delhi High Court on Wednesday said that it is incumbent on courts to take decisions concerning complex social issues and not “dribble past them” while striking down the marital rape exception in a split verdict.
“As that is the mandate of the Constitution and, therefore, duty and obligation which must be discharged if one is to remain true to the oath taken under the Constitution. Thus, the mea culpa on behalf of the institution is that one way or the other the issue ought to have been laid to rest much earlier,” Justice Shakdher said in his judgment.
