In the realm of gender justice, laws have primarily focused on safeguarding women, yet a lesser-known narrative emerges concerning men grappling with false allegations and law misuse. This research delves into the motivations behind false allegations, examining their societal impact. Through case studies and legal precedents, it advocates for a balanced approach to gender justice, ensuring fairness for all individuals. Analyzing provisions in the Indian Penal Code, 1860, and the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023, alongside recent judicial interventions, it underscores the need for legal reforms to protect the rights of all genders.
