Dedicated to the Victimised Indian Families, Who are falsely threatened & Blackmailed by the Indian Daughters-In-Law & her family members, and those Victimised families who are already falsely charged under the Section 498A.

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?

SIF Scores at Inter Collegiate Medical Symposium

After the Mass Media Group of Rizvi College Bandra in 2006-7 who stood 1st in their sociology project, This year a group of young Medical Students at Grant Medical College Mumbai, have identified Battered Husband Syndrome as Valid and have adopted this as a project. They are spreading awareness about something that has been ignored till decades now. That is to say that they have identified SIF’s cry that even males suffer and there is something that all need to know. They being the future Doctors have shown sensibility and compassion towards the so called animal MAN.

As a part of their curriculum they have to study various laws that would touch their profession, 498a being one of them. But these 9 students have realized the misuse angle or its threat that takes a toll on the dynamics of the Mind of a Man, given his responsibilities as an ATM, the challenge of being emotionally strong in all circumstances and then being labeled as STONE.

These dynamic budding doctors want to go beyond the classrooms with this awareness campaign. Hence at an inter collegiate level they chose the topic of battered husband syndrome instead of a typical Leprosy or AIDS talk, they have been able to convey the pain well and compete with the topic to the likes of Heart Surgery and Modern Techniques, Cancer etc.

[At the Weekly SIF meetings in Borivali National Park]

In a very short time they picked up the topic very well and have been able to present to the Aam Junta, it is totally their hard work and research. Their Version 1 got good response and a 2nd Prize at Avishkar an Intercollegiate Festival organized by KEM Hospital, they have decided to go ahead with Version 2 of their presentation with an elevated knowledge of the said subject for the future symposiums. The first prize belonged to a media savvy, well backed and socially accepted topic 'Autism'.

My heartiest Congratulations to the Navratnas and I wish them all the luck for all the future symposiums with their efforts SIF have scored at Inter Collegiate Medical Symposium. My sincere gratitude to them for representing this topic so far and for the future to come as they will be instrumental in making the campus aware of this gross misuse with a unique medical and Human angle towards Man that is missing at large in the books of law and in the mindsets of the society. 

[After being announced among Winners]  

Blessings to the bachcha log.

If this team is interested in studying the subject of harassed husbands further, they might want to register for the webinar(April 7th) for shaping up the male studies program in a US university: http://www.malestudies.org/

All the best, we need more research studies on the subject to build an authentic foundation for our arguments.

My congrats on a job well done by these students.

Also they deserve special kudos for picking up a non-fashionable topic about abused men and doing full justice to it.

Good work, team, hope their project will open many more eyes to the harsh underbelly of Indian marriages and the gross inequality of men. For long women have demanded women's liberation, its high time that we need a Men's liberation movement / Commission for Men.
