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.

Even if Arjun Singh says he was not present in the party, and he may not be as well but how does that confirm and acquits him from a dowry harassment charge, that he has not harassed her AFTER marriage.
Renuka says he is innocent, then what???? she is not the court, he has to go to the court and prove his innocence.


What makes the people believe that he is innocent other than their personal/political relations.

And when she agrees to it that the law is getting misused then why has the small loop hole be even kept in the law when the things are open in ifront of all.

1. My case involves not 3 but 5 cities. Why is it not transferred to cbi. Why does everyone have to go to my wife's city for hearing.
2. One of the accused didnt attend the function as the person was not well.
3. Two persons were immidiately arrested, tried before magistrate and had to go for 14 days judicial custody until they got bail from session court. Rest all were saved since they went into hiding till they got anticipatory bail otherwise they would have also met the same fate.

I have 10 such points. reading arjun singh's case just leaves me frustated.

Are we a democratic coutry?I think ours is a monarchy of gandhi/nehru family & other corrupt, anarchist politicians who are above law.

Renuka Choudhary on the show Devil's Advocate denied that dowry laws are being misused and now the same Renuka Chodhary is saying Arjun Singh is innocent and law is being misused bcoz now one of their party member is being framed. What will you call this? Is not it anarchy? Why not Arjun Singh and his family put behind bars and branded gulity till they prove themselves innocent like any other common man is supposed to do.

Renuka Chaudhary accepts misuse in this case. Millions, others, when shouting for help, she just grinned and said "its your turn to suffer.."

Arjun Singh should be arrested, he has no AB

dear anon's,

though all of you are from different IP addresses, if you all can reveal your pen names that too would do, coz all comments are really strong from its points of view and some of them worthy for quoting.

Nothing will happen to Arjun Singh. He will be acquitted because 498a law applies to humans, not to evils. Evils are ruling our country. Imagine the future of our country if evils are making anti-human laws like 498a.

Well, talking about reality checks, they never do any. In our case, we have all evidence (relatives, friends who were guests at the wedding) and also the hotel staff, bills etc to prove that she never stayed with us and that makes the "Domestic" word inapplicable.... who sees it anyway?

Also, A case of 1.5 days in Indian territory has already spent around 1.25 years in courts and we are being tried under all possible courts of the city......

It is shameful in a democratic country that such women who morally, emotionaly and financially kill a man and his family and waste the precious time of courts, are enjoying benefits on the name of 498 A, DV and maintenance ..... and the guy's family have no reason to feel that they are citizens of a Democratic India.

And people like Renuka are claiming to be messengers of Women in India even without our consent (Am a woman by the way and I strongly feel most of these people claiming to be working for the benefit of Indian women are actually working for a selected group of the society and not for women!!!)

we need to increase the awareness by telling that statistics that are shown are false and misleading and how they are manufactured.

unless we do it unless we speak unless we don't become the change that we wish to see in the world this would continue.

we need more and more women who redefines the defination of women as not just a newly wed wife and counters the hidden attacks made by NCW and its offshoots. and also make renukas of the nation that they are harming the women in the name of protecting.
