Indian marital laws are extremely anti-male in nature. Almost all laws stereotypically assume that all men are aggressors and all women are victims and thus these laws have become havoc for Indian men. Indian men are increasingly becoming innocent victims of the “Legal Terrorism” cast by these laws.
Laws like Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code, the Domestic Violence, Child Custody provisions, etc. are being used heavily against men to convert failed marriages into a crime and penalize innocent men. This not only endangers the male gender but also the social fabric and the family system of India.
Confidare Community Center is the first ever men’s rights center in India aimed towards creating a community based approach towards creating awareness of abuse of men’s rights by the society and lawmakers.
Men, victimized by Section 498A, the Domestic Violence Act and other maintenance laws and child custody provisions etc. can discuss their cases here, share their pains and feelings with other fellow victimized men. Additionally, they can also refer to a pool of legal books and citations which can help them strengthen their case legally. These and some more services are available at the Confidare Community Center on a chargeable basis.
Confidare Community Center is the first of its kind in India that offers a listening ear to the problems faced by men. This center is being inaugurated in Bangalore.
The inauguration is on Saturday, the 28th of May 2011 from 11 AM to 7 PM. Interested people can walk in any time there and spend time with the founders and experts to know what is in store for them.
The address of Confidare Community Center is,
# 152, 2nd Floor, 1st Main, 7th Block, Koramangala, Bangalore-560095
(Landmark: near Juke Box, next to Bancharam Sweets Shop)
