The rise and the fall of the men’s right movement in India

19th July 2005 – The Honorable Supreme Court of India passed a landmark judgement in which it said that “Misuse of Section 498A against men and their families unleashes a new form of Legal Terrorism against them”.

  2. They don’t need to adjust with another family.
  3. They get inheritance in ancestral property.
  4. Their child gets their name.
  5. Their name doesn’t need to change after marriage.

  2. They need to continue to remain so lifelong, which means they cannot stop working and sit at home.
  3. They cannot pursue their interests as it may not generate enough income for the survival of the whole family.
  4. Even if their wife works, they should not expect her to share the financial load, if she does it by her own choice, well and good.
  5. The risk of bringing a new person into their life and family wrests entirely with the man and one wrong decision can ruin his life.
