Pooja urged on Tuesday that the law that are exciting to protect the voice of rape victim, should be used in responsible manner by the women.
In response to the question of IANS on inequality exist in the law at the press meet, Pooja said: "Taking the history of our country in consideration and the patriarchal society that we are living in, there is a situation where a rape victim goes to the police station and her complaint does not get registered, which is wrong. So we need laws against rape and such violence; but at the same time, if a severe number of women are misusing the law if they are not respecting the law that are meant to protect them rather taking advantage of it, we need to think about how to protect the right of a man as well!"
