Women go to the police with a complaint (may be false), but the system provides to record that as a criminal complaint and that data adds in to the National Statistics of Crime Against Women. When male goes with a genuine complaint the police at max can record a Non Cognizable offence against the women. That will never reflect in the statistics. Then how will one guage crime against men? Every 100 Suicides in India have 63 Males and 37 Females. Every 100 male suicides have 45 married males, and every 100 women suicides have 25 married Women. Married women suicides have default arrests of the inlaws under presumed dowry death. Married men suicides entitle wife for a 50% share in property. What kind of equality is this?

Two Anniversaries

This post is dedicated to the Dear Parents and family members of SIF.
There are two anniversaries to encounter, one to mourn(498a) and other to celebrate (9224335577).

Exactly one year ago, 1st Mumbai helpline was launched, Dedicated to the parents as a x-mas gift. This was the day when 498a witnessed its 23rd year of un-amended existence and 22nd anniversary. One year later 498a is coupled with the clumsy and disgraceful DV Act. Sadly in its disgraceful 24th year, 498a is unchanged and 23 years old but the helpline gets one year old and is giving a tough fight to the mis-users of the Law.

On this 1st anniversary of helpline I would like to take a brief account of what happened in last 365 days, this helpline has helped Mumbai to grow from 15 to 100+ on the net and much more on ground, it could establish Nashik chapter and integrate various other chapters. It handled calls from old age parents to the concerned sister apart from the husbands too. It also had the privilege to handle a couple of distressed cases of women and girls too. It has also identified a couple of false callers too. Overall, it has represented the support of SIF to the victims.

It handled media and also international calls. From 1 call every 3 days to 3 calls a day and now a call every 3 minutes this christmas. It has come a long way to reach this level.

While there are state sponsored helplines for wives, there are none for husbands and to fight legal terrorism and help Save Indian Families from breaking and blackmailed. Meanwhile thankfully...

- Mid Day Gujarati Publishes a full page article on the movement and all Gujarati victims seek refuge in loads.

- Times of India Publishes a Half Page Article. And guess what the calls wouldn’t stop since then.

- Sandhyanand Marathi Follows the suit everytime it sees such informative news informing the marathi bandhus.

Thanks to Gupta Uncle, Gokul and Suhail for sharing the load of helpline by including their numbers. I also thank Rakesh for extending his support in field on weekends in spite of his busy schedule.

We would also thank Sakal, Lokmat, Abhiyaan, India Today, Hindustan Times, Asian Age, Zee News, India TV, Channel 7, CNN-IBN Live, Star News for the coverage of the movement and other channels and media too.

This helpline has made all our parents proud as today it was busy handling loads of calls on its birthday and redirecting them to the right region and has got associated with the new NGO in making “Protect Indian Family” Mumbai.

So, on another disgraceful birthday bashing to 498a, let us celebrate Xmas and 1 yr of Helpline Success. As the helpline was worth it.

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday to Mumbai Helpline.

Jinesh Zaveri.

It is not possible to comprehend the extent of relief innocent people must have got from this helpline. Now innocent people, who are legally terrorised, will not worry of being all alone in this female dominated society. Now they have a support.

The impressive increase in number of calls, however, shows how many innocent families are suffering but it is also a ray of hope that these families will not suffer more because there are good people who are ready to guide them in difficult times.

Nobody could have ever imagined that there will be people out there who will come forward to give solace to these innocent families, who are falsely accused by their wife/daughter-in-law, in a country where women are, by default, considered a victim and men considered guilty until proven innocent.

Help is now just a dial away. We have achieved a lot till now, but we will have to accomplish much more to attain social peace and harmony.

Mumbai SIF members have tremendous potentials, and this is just the beginnning.
