Press Release: AIMRAW Continues protest against Women Reservation Bill

PRESS RELEASE

Sub: Continuing protest Women Reservation Bill.

About AIMRAW:

Association for International Men’s Rights Activism and Welfare (AIMRAW) is the first ever international conglomerate of men’s rights activists all over the world. This organization intends to create massive awareness about men’s issues all over the world and vouch for men’s rights in all areas of life. AIMRAW aims to create “Affiliate Chapters” to spread its awareness. AIMRAW is in touch with men’s rights activists from 60 countries all over the world, including India. The Indian Affiliate Chapter of AIMRAW is in Bangalore, India.

The Indian Affiliate Chapter of AIMRAW had voiced its opposition to Constitutional Amendment for the proposed Women’s Reservation Bill via a press release which is available at http://www.aimraw.org/aimraw-voices-protest-against-women-reservation-bill/, on the following grounds.

Reserving the constituencies for women as enshrined in the proposed Constitutional Amendment will lead to,

  1. Infringement on choice of citizens to elect their representative.
  2. Infringement on choice of men to contest elections (either as a political party member or an independent) in their own constituency.

The proposed Constitutional Amendment, instead of addressing the lack of integrity on part of political parties, displayed by the miniscule number of women candidates they field in elections, attacks on the “Constitutional Rights” of ordinary male citizens by stopping them from contesting elections and by preventing the electorate from electing their representative.

Taking serious note of this mutilation of Constitution and subversion of democracy, the Indian Affiliate Chapter of AIMRAW has launched a massive protest against the same.

The Chapter has written letters of protest to 400 Members of Parliament from all over India. A copy of the letter can be found at,

One thought on “Press Release: AIMRAW Continues protest against Women Reservation Bill

  1. I have already voiced my opposition to such unconstitutional steps/acts. There is no need for any separate reservation for women for fighting Elections. Experience shows ‘Reservation of Jobs’ has caused deteriorated/poor service by various departments of the Government.
    Reservation in Parliament will have far reaching consequences which no citizen could even imagine today.
    Let us pledge and fight for “NO RESERVATION” atleast in the highest constitutional body/authority of the land.

    The ‘letter of protest’/’press release’ is complete and self explanatory and all aspects has been covered very appropriately.
    regards.
