Protest against deceptions from daughter in laws.
On 8th March, Woman’s day is going to be celebrated all over the world. Seeking oppurtunity of this day, many Mandals (organisations) and Clubs have become very busy in felicitating women who have managed to carve out their own unique identity from adverse conditions that they were once in.
On other hand, Mothers and sisters from organisation that calls itself “All India Forgotten woman and Mothers and Sisters Initiative” have taken a decision to organise a morcha (rally) at the offices of National Commission of Women (NCW) Offices in Delhi to highlight the plight of victims when one women in order to decieve another women misuses section 498 law.
On International Women’s day, Felicitations, Recognitions are Paritoshak (Rewards) are given to women with noticeable achievements in industries, Academics, Journalism, Medicine and many other such fields.
The objective behind felicitating Achivements of these women where they’ve matched shoulders with shoulders with fellow men in Male Dominated Culture is to inspire and provide an example to other women.
But it is being reported that inspite of recognition and felicitiation in society and outside world, there are stories of torture and torment within the confines of their houses.
A Spokesperson Gokul from this organisation has said that in most cases, police after filing a complaint u/s 498, harass many women of the house based on complaint of one without any prior investigation whatsoever.
Hence On International women’s day, the intent behind taking rally to the offices of National Commission of Women is to protest against women who misuese the laws, says Gokul. If requirement arises, organizing such a rally in Mumbai is also being planned, he said.
