Yellow journalism by Deccan Chronicle


Yellow journalism by Deccan Chronicle is spreading false alarm in the society. While the examples cited by the article may be true, it by no means stands justified to promote the ultra – constitutional Domestic Violence Act. International studies have proved worldwide that both men and women are equally prone to Domestic Violence and yet there is no law to protect men. And on top of that biased articles like these brainwash the society into believing women are victims and more and more anti – male laws are passed.

Repeated complaints of domestic violence being misused are received by Save Indian Family Foundation and its partner NGOs and then biased and articles based on concocted stories like these are used by radical feminists to promote the misuse and break relationships to encash them. Most of the times the Domestic Violence Act is used by urban rich educated women to grab their in – laws property and to squander money from their husbands in the name of marriage and this practice is fuelled by such articles. The Honorable Supreme Court of India has also told it’s a badly drafted law, then why is Deccan Chronicle promoting the use of Domestic Violence which violates Article 14, 15, 20, 21 of the Indian Constitution?

After writing about the misuse of dowry laws and domestic violence laws this is the worst incidence of Yellow journalism by Deccan Chronicle.

What are the sources of the surveys pointed to in the articles?

What is the sample data used for evaluating the surveys?

Who has reviewed the survey and data analysis?

What is the source of the above figures?

Why every survey quotes to different figures in the same time period and geography?

Why are men presented in poor light when a woman can also subject another woman to domestic violence like a daughter – in – law harassing her mother – in – law?

“What is even more worrying is that only one in three women (29 per cent) who has experienced violence has sought help. More than half (57 per cent) of those who are abused have neither complained nor tried to end it. This obviously gives men a freer hand to dole out physical abuse.”

“A report of the National Family Health Survey says 63 per cent of men in the
state feel wife beating is justified under some circumstances.”

On the other hand, when every year 56, 000 married men are committing suicide due to torture by their wives and in – laws, why there is no men’s welfare ministry?

And why is Deccan Chronicle promoting female foetecide in the society by projecting women as victims?  Does it not have any social responsibility?

  1. Interestingly, the same Deccan Chronicle did a package on Harassed husbands and their ‘innovative’ ways to get the custody of the child. Another example of yellow journalism?

  2. Yes it is. For when they write an article on harassed husbands they write “His wife did this with him.” But when they write articles showing women as victims, they paint the entire clan of men as criminals. Equal number or rather more number of men are victims of domestic violence but they never get an audience. The media is always happy to conduct media trials against men. How many criminal women have been subjected to media trials the way men have been??
    Statistics showing men as victims are always suppressed whereas for women concocted statistics are shown. Is this not yellow journalism??
    Before commenting first understand what is “Yellow Journalism” and get to know the ground realities. Come out from your Alice in Wonderland night show.

  3. It is a proven fact that these days females want to have the upper hand in any relationship, and society is allowing it, when you give someone absolute power, naturally they will abuse it. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    Not only are women portrayed as victims, they want to be victims to garner sympathy,to be more aggressive and promote ill laws against men. This only shows that women still are weak and meek, and want to be small minded individuals, they don’t want to take the bull by the horns so to speak, but would rather have society still spoon feed them with ill effective cruel laws, such as 498a, and DV act 2005. Without such laws where would women be, men are still truely the leaders of society, they have to fight the fight as always and bring the bread and butter to the table, sorry girls but you simply wont a free ride. Too many couples today both work but its the mens money that pays the bills and puts food on the table, the women keep there cash in the bank for a cold day, yeah the day when the separate. Sad fact but reality.

  4. Dear Ms. SeethaLakshmi,
    Though it is important for your to know the truth ( but we know a person who keep blind eye intentionally , can’t be wake up ) , as you feel you know every think and to satisfy your so called ego and lie to satisfy your typical male -hater attitude, but the reality is this and we SIF memebrs will continue our fight till our last blod is there, for more you can go through : Your approch will never ever reduce the Domestic violence, it will increse more and more and histroy wittnes for the same all over the world. Domestic violence is not a gender issue, you accept or not , that is the truth and truth preveils always and stop such legal terrorism, as histroy wittnes, terroist activity only kills innocent, it never give justice to any one.
    This is called the present Justice system in India and equal right in India.

    For a wife even adultrity also is not a crime (it is a rewarding option and free money earning business for the whole life), but for a man even an allegation of “Name-calling” is crime and not only the man, his mother/sister/age-old father also can be put behind the bar under 498A or DV act.

    Indian men still sleeping and not able to understand the dirty game plan of those Radical orginasations for thier own personnel benifit ( divorced and live-in-realtionship women) misusing the provision of Indian Constituion to such a extant the Gender War is coming . Allready the Instituion of Marrage had been killed, harmoney at work place disturbed now the time to destory your own basic right to live and liberty also.
    Indian Men just a Free ATM machine nothing else!!!!
    We immediate demand to Indian Goverment for formation of “Men well fare ministry” to stop such dadagri of NCW and stop treating the Men as Free ATM Machine and immediately sack the present NCW chair person , who is misusing her power to just full fill her own personnle benifit.
    We wonder whose life is in More Danger in India: Men or Women.
