Is dowry law abuse the only issue men face?

Come July 2nd 2014 and the nation went berserk on a landmark judgment passed by the Supreme Court of India directing the police not to arrest without following due procedures in dowry cases and there were reactions coming in from all sides – positive and negative.

Some over-enthusiastic people even went to the extent of thinking that dowry law has now been diluted and men can breathe easy as its misuse would be curbed now.

And thus it made me think – “Is dowry law abuse the only issue men face?

Also, how does one judgment ensure that men won’t be arrested in other false charges? In a society, where we have a plethora of anti-male laws, such a hope is far-fetched and wrought with imagination.

In the last one week, I came across 2 such instances wherein men have been arrested under Section 107/151 on a complaint of creating public nuisance without trial or investigation.

PRESS RELEASE: Aamir Khan is maligning Men by telling lies and half-truths in Ardha-Satyameva Jayate

Subject: Aamir Khan is maligning Men by telling lies and half-truths in Ardha-Satyameva Jayate.

Recently, it has been reported that actor Aamir Khan has approached Mumbai police with complaints about some malicious propaganda against him. This is least expected out of a person, who stereotypes and paints large sections of Indian men as evil on his show Satyameva Jayate. He claimed 50% of men are beating up 50% of women in the episode on domestic violence (in last season), which is far from any truth.

The title of Aamir Khan’s program Satyameva Jayate has to be changed to Ardha-Satyameva Jayate (Half Truths only Triumph) as it is all about manipulation and fake tears.

Actor Aamir Khan is doing business around truth while manipulating data, figures, statistics and telling half truths. This is not Satyameva Jayate at all. Watching such a program actually distorts one’s perceptions, when it is sold to the audience claiming it to be the truth.

Indian Legal System Puts Men in a Fix

The legal system in India resembles many other common law systems based on legislation, historical customs and precedents set-forth by prior courts.  The country’s Constitution provides the final word on India law and governing, which is administered by a court system broken into various “levels”

India’s courts are historically inefficient, with significant backlogs present within most levels of the legal system.  As a result of extended backlogs, public sentiment toward India’s court system is low, with some calling for formal reform.  To detractors, the right to justice stands as a fundamental principle, so they believe the burden is upon the state to deal with the slow-to-justice issue, by providing infrastructure adequate to handle the flow of the judiciary.  It is currently estimated that there are approximately 14 judges employed for each million citizens in India.

The courts are also notoriously corrupt, with noted cases of bribery, influence peddling and other indiscretions on record.  So where does these leave Indian citizens accused of crimes?  The answer is a mixed bag, depending on the type of crime suspected, and the sex of the alleged offender.

PRESS RELEASE: Men’s Rights Activists refuse to vote for MPs who will support Marriage Law (Amendment) Bill, 2010

Date: 6th August 2013

PRESS RELEASE

Sub: Men’s Rights Activists refuse to vote for MPs who will support Marriage Law (Amendment) Bill, 2010

Men’s Rights Activists all over India, under the auspices of the Men’s Right Association (MRA) Pune have made a clarion call to the society against the Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2010.

Terming the bill as extremely anti-male, anti-husband and anti-marriage that seeks to incentivize divorce, men’s rights activists have come out in large numbers against the bill which is supposed to be debated in the current ongoing monsoon session of the parliament.

Activists belonging to the Men’s Rights Association, Pune have highlighted the dangers of passing the bill,

  1. Men will stop marrying after this bill is passed.
  2. Men will stop investing in real estate after this bill is passed.
  3. This law, if passed, shall promote family breaking and divorces.
  4. This law, if passed, will lead to the formation of a fatherless society in India.
  5. Marriages will be converted into property transfer bureau.
  6. Women will marry only for property and shall break short marriages eying property of their soon to be ex-husbands.
  7. This may also lead to promulgation of crime in the society as property is a sensitive issue and if men are forced to part with their hard-earned property merely because their marriage did not work, the social consequences of such a badly designed law can be potentially dangerous.
  8. This law, if passed, will also contribute to the growing tendency of gynophobia (fear of women) in the society.
  9. This law, if passed, shall contribute to the growing number of suicides by married men. Currently every year 64000+ married men commit suicide.
  10. This law, if passed, will leave men bankrupt after divorce as they would lose their property and also face additional extortion under false 498A (Dowry) case, false domestic violence case, false maintenance case.
