Nothing like marital rape: Former Mizoram governor Swaraj Kaushal sparks Twitter war
Supreme Court lawyer and former Mizoram governor Swaraj Kaushal stirred a row on social media on Tuesday with controversial observations on marital rape.

He was commenting after the government told the high court that criminalising marital rape might put the family system under stress.
His comments triggered criticism on social media, with many talking about the plight of women stuck in abusive marriages.
Kaushal is the husband of Union foreign minister Sushma Swaraj and a senior advocate with the Supreme Court.
