दफ्तर में पुरुषों का भी सेक्सुअल हैरेसमेंट!

नई दिल्ली।। अभी तक माना जाता था कि वर्क प्लेस पर सिर्फ महिलाएं यौन उत्पीड़न का शिकार होती हैं, लेकिन आज की तारीख में पुरुष भी ऐसी घटनाओं का शिकार हो रहे हैं। कुछ अध्ययनों से यह साबित भी हुआ है। सरकार देश में एक ऐसी स्टडी कराने की योजना बना रही है, जिससे वर्कप्लेस पर पुरुषों के यौन उत्पीड़न की असल तस्वीर सामने आ सके। महिला एवं बाल विकास मंत्री कृष्णा तीरथ ने यह जानकारी दी।

सरकार जल्द ही संसद में वर्कप्लेस पर महिलाओं के यौन उत्पीड़न से बचाव संबंधी बिल लाने वाली है। मंत्रालय के पास ऐसे सुझाव आए हैं कि इस बिल को महिला और पुरुष में भेद करने वाला नहीं होना चाहिए।

किन क्षेत्रों में ज्यादा होता है उत्पीड़न : ग्लैमर इंडस्ट्री, फिल्म और टेलिविजन इंडस्ट्री, डिफेंस सविर्सेज, प्रफेशनल कॉलेजों के हॉस्टल, बीपीओ, आईटी सेक्टर जैसे तमाम क्षेत्र हैं, जहां पुरुषों के उत्पीड़न की घटनाएं सामने आती हैं। मंत्रालय के एक सूत्र के मुताबिक, वैसे तो इस अध्ययन में देश के तमाम शहरों, तबकों और क्लास को शामिल किया जाएगा, लेकिन हमारा ध्यान ऐसे क्षेत्रों पर ज्यादा होगा, जहां ऐसी घटनाएं होने की संभावना ज्यादा है।

कौन करता है उत्पीड़न: अब तक हुए अध्ययनों से सामने आया है कि पुरुषों के उत्पीड़न के लिए महिला और पुरुष, दोनों जिम्मेदार हैं। माना जा रहा है कि इसके पीछे बदलती सोच है। पुरुषों के मामले में बॉस और सहकर्मी दोनों ही उनका उत्पीड़न करते हैं। विशेषज्ञों के मुताबिक, ताकतवर पदों पर महिलाओं के सामने आने और होमोसेक्सुअल लोगों के प्रति बदली सोच के चलते ऐसी घटनाएं होने लगी हैं। अध्ययन में इन बातों पर भी विचार किया जाएगा।

Why is the democratic law making process being violated in Sexual Harassment Bill?

It is a well documented fact that India is a democratic republic and a democratic law making process has been well documented in the Constitution of India – which is the mother of laws – which takes into consideration, representations from all sections of the society for formulating any law.

Then why are the National Commission for Women(NCW) and the Women and Child Development Ministry (WCD Ministry) violating the same while drafting the Sexual Harassment at Workplace Bill.

WCD by specially discriminating Men, is openly violating article 15 of the Constitution of India which prohibits discrimination against any citizen on grounds of religion and sex. Article 15(3) of the Constitution, (which lies BELOW Article 15), allows the Government to make special provision for women and children, but nowhere it is mentioned that the same should be achieved by doing discrimination on grounds of sex and thereby violating the Main Article 15 of the Constitution.

Indian Government Promotes Dowry System

Dowry system has always evoked a lot of response in India but mostly in wrong directions. The very word dowry sparks sympathy for the bride and hatred for the bridegroom. Thanks to the countless efforts of fund chasing gender obsessed radical feminists and power hungry alpha males who have jointly spread so much of male hatred that today, the society has become completely numb to abuse of men and crimes by women.

The word “dowry harassment” is conveniently used by women to cover up their follies and hold some man responsible for it. Today, misuse of dowry laws is an acceptable fact. Everyone from Peon to President has talked about it. What does that mean? It simply means that the problem of dowry as presented has never existed, otherwise why would there be so many false cases? More so, it has to be borne in mind that the current implementation of dowry laws does not require any evidence to punish the accused – the mere statement of the “woman” is enough to punish and the onus of proving innocence lies on the accused.

Very recently, the Ministry of Women and Child Development has made efforts to reduce punishment for “Dowry Givers” while increase it for “Dowry Takers” as per the following news http://in.jagran.yahoo.com/news/national/general/5_1_6097820.html. Common sense is something which is terribly missing in the Indian Government and our lawmakers. If there are no “Givers”, can there be any “Takers”? Instead of increasing the punishment for “Givers” which will actually reduce the practice of dowry as the root cause is taken care of, our great lawmakers are doing the exact opposite.

Project Sita, Protect Surpanakha

As already explained in Gender Arsenal, there is a volley of laws to protect women and the below image of a woman or a similar one is used to get these laws passed for one may wonder that why there are so many laws to protect a woman and none to protect a man.

clip_image002

The answer to this question may be complex and partially answered in Man’s Power Tussle leads to Man’s Struggle, however, the fact remains, there are laws and acts to protect women and even animals, but not men. Worse, there are more laws in the pipeline.

And one such proposed law is the Sexual Harassment Bill (SHB) which aims to ‘protect’ WOMEN from sexual harassment at workplaces. Of late, the women protection laws like the Dowry Harassment law, Domestic Violence law have come under scathing criticism by a group of citizens who have organized themselves into NGOs under the aegis of Save Indian Family and research conducted by Save Indian Family activists has revealed that women are much safer than they are projected in media and in reality it’s the men who are suffering.

Some glaring statistics about men are available at,

  1. Domestic Violence Claims 156,000 husbands
  2. Indian Men – An epitome of Sacrifices

These figures have been never published by the Govt. of India; these are the result of relentless campaigning and research done by Save Indian Family Activists on figures available with Govt. records in the National Crime Records Bureau.

These figures projected a picture in sharp contrast with social perceptions where a woman is always a victim and a man is always a criminal. These figures clearly show the abuse men undergo at the hands of women and die unprotected. It was unearthed by men wronged by dowry laws’ misuse and because the dowry laws and domestic violence laws have no provision to address the misuse, the misuse has been happening to the tune of 98% in these areas. For all practical purposes, these laws cannot be called laws; they are legal unaccountable loose extortion weapons sought to seek revenge and vengeance.

And now, the same masterminds have proposed the SHB, some of the glorious highlights of which are:-

  1. It is based on single judgment by Supreme Court in the Vishakha case.
  2. It is also based on the same Victim Women Criminal Men Syndrome, based on which dowry laws were designed and have led not only to social rampage and devastation of married men, but have also devoured the family system and established the foundations of a fatherless society in India.
  3. It does not have any provision to address misuse.
  4. It is being kept out of the purview of the Right to Information Act, 2005 (RTI) – the only tool citizens have in the so called democratic country – India to expose the corruption of Govt. officials.
  5. It is not gender neutral although Men can be harassed sexually.

Now, the obvious question arises is, that when it is a Bill and yet in formulation stages, then how do I have all this information with me. Answer is again RTI. Relentless RTI campaign by our activists spanning months and spelling hours and hours of hard work have resulted in the above synopsis. Detailed RTI is available here.

It is surprising that the SHB is being proposed in its current form even when there is reasonable awareness of,

  1. Misuse of dowry laws (accepted by the Honorable President of India and the Honorable Chief Justice of India)
  2. The fact that men are victims too.
  3. The fact that women can lie too and women can be criminals as well.

In wake of the above situation, not providing a misuse clause, keeping SHB out of the purview of the RTI Act and other glorious features as described above points only to a grim reality of a clear conspiracy theory against men. A conspiracy wherein the photo of Sita is projected to get a gender obsessed law and Surpanakha is encouraged to misuse to law to treat the man as a FREE ATM MACHINE.

By providing the five glorious features as described above, it is clearly evident that Gender Based Radical Extremists and masterminds of Weapons of Male Destruction (WMD) are projecting Sita to get gender obsessed laws and protecting Surpanakha to propagate the misuse to unleash their male hatred. Project Sita, Protect Surpanakha.
