IPC Section 498-A: Misuse

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. Its all about False charges of Dowry Law, Domestic Violence, Alimony, Marriage and Divorce. NOTE: All articles are my personal copyright.

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?

Free Press Journal Invites to Write on WRB

My article was published in Free Press Journals' Sunday "Weekend" Suppliment's Front Page on 14th March 2010. I thank Ketan Tanna from the Free Press Journal to extend an invitation to write on Womens Reservation Bill.

Arguing In favor for the bill was Ms. Kalpana Sharma an Independent Columnist. While, I had the privilege of representing the SIF Side of the Story. (Click on the picture for larger image)

The contents in the Article

By Jinesh Zaveri:
Give me a single instance where a woman was refused constitutionally to contest the Indian election just because of her gender. But the Women’s Reservation Bill (WRB) will stop an Indian Male to contest Elections in 33% of the seats just because he is a man. Discrimination at the onset, man now a Class 2 Citizen.

Unlike Indira Gandhi, Sonia, Pratibhatai, Shusma, etc, Women will no longer Command Respect, WRB makes women Demand Respect thus losing grace by obstructing capable males in contesting Free and Fair elections. Reservation Fractures the Preamble of equality in Constitution and spirit of freedom. With netas advocating for hike in 33% and Dalit women reservation category, the equation gets more sluggish.

If a special category denies rights to some section, equality ceases. India already has a special caste reservation that narrows the Open Category in contesting; WRB would only make it shallower. As a result Elections in India would no longer be ‘a bit’ free and fair.

WRB may be Ideal in books but some ignored anticipated scenarios are foreseen as complicated in execution. It brings about Unconstitutional Dictatorship in democracy. Bahus Sonias and Manekas of the nation will enjoy uninterrupted contesting in their constituency - term after term. But sons, Rahuls and Varuns of the nation may face the denial in their peak to contest due to rotating reservation in a constituency. An all women battle on rotating reservation will prevent a male from contesting 3 elections consecutively in a row from the same seat unlike their Lady Counterparts.

Winning lady in reservation round will make it difficult for the stepped out male of her party in next elections and with weak anti-incumbency factor, the goodwill and hardwork of male in opposition would be wiped out to be re-elected in next round. Women would be free to contest from anywhere, against men too. But men would be denied to contest if it’s an all women reserved constituency.

What are we trying to achieve with WRB? Word ‘women’ has become synonymous with wife while mothers-sisters of husband are forgotten. In this so called male dominated society, Husbands are denied the basic right of recording an FIR against wife (hence no statistics). Every year close to 1lakh males and approx 33000 Mothers-Sisters of Husband get arrested by the daughters in law sans investigation in a 498a complaint with 2% conviction rate (Source:NCRB/CSR). Stats used by women organizations of harassment over wives are proven to include 98% of acquittal cases. As a result every year with mothers and sisters legally harassed by daughters-in-law, there stands a great risk of abuse of power and denial of justice to the real women and common citizen.

WRB empowers women in House but not in homes. The dependency of wife on husband’s money and protection of husband’s mother-sisters from false arrest by Daughters-in-Law remain real unresolved empowerment issues. Yet, the biggest losers would be “we the people” who may be denied a good progressive leader just because he is a Male.

Initially, the socialist women's groups were funded by the USSR. This led to the creation of the varaious women's groups and lawyer's collective by bitter divorcees/rejected women. Power hungry communist divorced/rejected women who reached the USA managed to enter US colleges/universities as teachers and started working on gullible students to propagate radical feminism. To do so, they joined hands with the gay and lesbian groups. The feminists in the USA realized that they could not succeed in the USA but it was easy to tap into federal grants. They started diverting funds to Southeast Asia and South America after they realized that it would be easier to push through their agenda by manipulating the population in corrupt countries.

As per me this is not done for the Women empowerment, it is for Women pamperament only. This is not new in this country in the name of women empowerment , our goverment made several anti-male, anti-human, anti-child, anti-family law and policey now it is time to kill the indian demorocey and i will not be surprised the day is not too far when our indian demorocey will converted to like Pakisthan or Afgasthan, where the Goverment in power can tamper the Indian consitutions and a simple message to all men, go to hell or leave this coutry, there is not demorict right to you at all and for that they have ready to re-write the indian consitutions also. It is upto the indian men to decide , after the vote bank politics in the name of caste, religion, now on the basis of gender is all ready on and which we at SIF predicted long back. Let watch the fun in coming years how the demoractice right of indian men had been chiped off, in the name of so called women empowerment, where this is nothing but women pamperament, which we wittness earlier also, but men prefer to sleep. A lot of men still do not now in this country the law is even a adultrity is not a crime for a women, where as even a small alligations of verbal abuse against men , let it be false or true, he land up in railway platform along with his mohter/sisters/child, that is india. Result, go through the crime bure report, the truth is every year more then double the men ending thier life in unatural death than women and all those husbands/men killers moving freely in this society as our goverment think , the pain of a mother or sister is nill, when they loss thier son or brother. The unanswered question, will Indian men wake up or still prefer to sleep?

Excellent write up Jinesh.

This bill is another weapon to divide and rule. Our nation is already divided bcoz of reservations based on caste and creed and now gender. This is just mockery of law.

Our pathetic, selfish and power hungry politicians dont want the common public to be united so that no one can question their bad governance.

Well said tejnish,

We support Sitas in getting empowered but are against surpankhas encashing on it.

In other words, have more laws but it should have Zero Tolerance on Misuse.

Else real Sitas would suffer and Surpankhas and Ravans would encash on it.

I came to know that the Child & Women welfare department has meeting outside India, where to they get the funds to support such meeting, when we are having hungry mouths to fill and so much to pay to lawyers, wife’s, police, maintenance and legal system and this so called Child and Women welfare departments have fun in the name of meeting abroad.
