Nagpur, Day 7 of October 2012
After raising several important issues throughout the world in respective countries, the organisation INSAAF (Indian Social Awareness and Activism Forum) has now focussed their attention on the topic of “Misuse of the provisions of laws biased towards women”. INSAAF demands formation of Commission for Men on the same platform as National Commission for women in order to achieve social balance. They have even deposed in front of Rajyasabha Committee. The Committee has given positive response and INSAAF has been requested to provide the guidelines for the same.
In India most of the laws are in favour of women only. Therefore Men and his family are unnecessarily harassed. Many a times men are accused under such laws due to false ego of the women. There are several such examples. No one dares to talks about justice for Men. There are several examples of Misuse of Dowry death law, Domestic Violence act, and several such laws. Because of such biased laws families are being broken down. This has caught attention of the international organisation INSAAF. Organisations working for family welfare and Men’s Rights organisations have reported such incidents to INSAAF. Accordingly core members of the organisation INSAAF have put forth their views in front of Rajyasabha Committee. Atleast 25 members of Rajyasabha has favoured the views of INSAAF.
To put forward the bill in the formation of Commission for Men, they will have to give such suggestions to the Government. Therefore INSAAF has been advised to articulate the draft and INSAAF is in the process of presenting the same.
Men are also victims of physical and mental harassment. Despite this they are the only ones who are charged in criminal cases. Several of the men in such cases are innocent. They have to unnecessarily face the wrong end of noose. Hence there must be law to protect them from such abuse. This is the idea behind formation of Commission says Atit Rajpara (Pune), Virag Dhulia (Bangalore) and Arnab Ganguly (Kolkata) of INSAAF. For more information contact 9823788013 and 9890974788.
