Anti-male bashing by Indian media sign now

Gender biased laws have no place in civilized society.

Hundreds of Thousands of males ( and females ) in India are dismayed and anguished by draconian laws such as the 498a, and the dowry laws passed recently by parliament, which are both misused commonly against innocent husbands.

In these circumstances, we deplore The Frontline article written to show such harassment of husbands in favourable light. This article is further proof of extreme anti-male activism, entering mainstream journalism, in India today.

Males are being legally harassed, and financial extortion is carried out under the aegis of the police and judiciary, under the threat of social ostracisation by the media. Even males need to awake and arise to these new challenges and the media has to remain unbiased to make this possible. The male rights movement in India is very young, while feminist groups have tremendous monetary support, especially from the Congress government, and this needs to be rectified urgently. Hence, the demand for a Minister for Mens Welfare to urgently be created for the redressal of male grievances.

Minister Renuka Chowdhury has identified herself strongly with the extreme anti-male forces in the country, and is quoted as saying that 'she would teach Indian males a lesson that their mothers failed to teach them (!)'. This is unbecoming of her as a minister, and we have demanded her immediate resignation. Without doubt, there are thorny dowry issues. But the WCD minister can instead of living in denial, structure inheritance laws in a more transparent manner to avoid needless allegations by the girls family.

Also, IPC 498a wrongly assumes that only males can be aggressors in a domestic discord, just as dowry laws assume that only dowry takers ( males ) are wrong. These assumptions are morally reprehensible and unjustifiable.

The feminist movement is giving wives a shady sense of 'empowerment', only to break their own family over minor issues also contributing to the high divorce rates, and this trend needs to be confronted legally. Otherwise, the traditional Indian family can become history soon.

We strongly condemn the recent article in The Frontline, by T.K.Rajalakshmi, as a totally false and one-sided view of the male victims need for justice and equality.

    Saying that theres no misuse of women-protection laws, is like saying theres no criminals among women. Stating that there is no basis in opposing misuse of women protection laws, is like stating there is no gender bias in laws.
