Question 15 Explanation: 

A mains-oriented question (a similar question was posted here earlier).

Regarding statement 1 ( http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/protecting-children-from-abduction/article21235805.ece ): The Commission's draft is in consonance with the principles of the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, 1980, which seeks to protect a child from the harmful effect of wrongful removal and secure prompt return and reintegration of the child in an environment of his/her 'habitual residence'.

Regarding Statement 2: From 2016: ( http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-news-india/india-will-not-ink-hague-treaty-on-civil-aspects-of-child-abduction-4397236/ ): "We found that there are more cases of Indian women who return to the safety of their homes in India after escaping a bad marriage. Cases of women who are foreign citizens, married to Indian men, going away with their children are far fewer. Hence signing the Hague Convention would be to the disadvantage of Indian women. Also, a majority of such cases pertain to women instead of men running away," said a WCD official.
