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?

Bhramastra on Arjun

While I was busy with my months closing at the office, I started getting sms’s from all my SIF brothers about Arjun Singh and his family slapped with a 498a. After a day, a livid Swarup Dada sends me a personal SMS for being quite on the whole issue. Well, I generally take time to react, especially if it is an individual’s involvement. And I was thinking about so many things revolving around, finally I decided to blog the thoughts.

It is the same 498a on Arjun Singh and his family, that arrests the old age parents and relatives of the husband on a Friday without proofs, later bailed after the weekend holocaust.
It is a cognizable criminal offence, non bailable, and non compoundable.
It is the same 498a that declares the accused guilty till proven innocent with one sided interim facilities to the bride, most of the proven times a so called victim.
But the story so far is different in this high profile case.

Points to be noted:
Thought there are plenty such cases but let us take the one which is more known. If it was a Santosh Kumar 7 yr old minor, he could have been still charge sheeted with alleged criminal charges and still no one bothered to do a reality check for a 4th Standard student‘s innocence.

Madam Renukaji intervenes and states that her fellow cabinet buddy is innocent. She may be right on her convictions too but why can’t she say this for other Indian citizens? Their only crime is that they do not know Renukaji personally. And that is why they are guilty till proven innocent. Otherwise the conviction is that the daughter in law is innocent and right, where as here she is called to be a misuser by the condom trusting lady. She truthfully agrues about Arjunji not attending the wedding at all which is not upheld prima-facie while being charge sheeted, arrested and before bailed out in cases of common Indian citizens and NRI’s.

Girijaji’s comments are not known to me on this issue as to whom would she support, the bahu or the badey babu? But her stand is always unclear to me, virginity issue was well handled as per my school of thought but then adultery for women was a biased opinion. And in case of Rajkot semi nude walk on the road issue she gave a very balanced opinion now what would be her stand?

Will Arjunji’s wife get NCW’s support or the dholak outside the house will be heard with support to the bahu.

Where are the reservation group people? They seem to be reserved on this whole politically moot issue.

If this was a case of a family who is god fearing, media would have given more mileage than what this issue is getting now. Irrespective of innocence of the groom. The head lines would have declared the groom and the family as criminals on the statement of the bride.

Bhramastra was made to destroy evil but what if evil masters it to destroy, it would destroy the creators. Just like the knowledgeable gyanis in panchatantra who pumped life in a dead tiger got killed by the tiger moment it came to life. Similarly blindly omnipotent 498a is blind and needs to change after such eye opening incidents else pretending sleep will be very pricey. The empowerment intended for sita is far from happening but yes surpanakhas are encashing at large.

I hope nobody in India is above law. Unfortunately only time will tell the truth. Would the damage be done in this case, well no one wants to talk about that, ya tell me about the guy next door may be he is criminal coz he is a guy and his family too by virtue and yes they need to be proven innocent till then they are guilty.

I am convinced about one thing and that is law is only for the law abiding. The Rest do not have to fear anyway.

Observing,

Jinesh.
