Abstract

It must be noted that the modern legal history of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh may show that all these three countries have framed their penal laws from colonial British Penal laws which was the governing law of the Indian peninsula in pre-independence era (prior to 1947). As such, the present criminal laws of these countries including those dealing with violence against women (including physical and online) may have similar features. This chapter argues that South Asian countries including India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan do not have focused laws on dealing with the issue of revenge porn targeting women. Further, the socio-economic conditions of these countries being quite the similar, it may be noted that women victims of revenge porn may neither prefer to seek police help due to fear of reputation damage.This chapter therefore aims to research as whether the application of Therapeutic Jurisprudence in such cases may benefit the victims.

Keywords: revenge porn, Therapeutic Jurisprudence, Compensatory jurisprudence, cyber crimes against women, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan
