International Men’s Day (IMD) 19, it was inaugurated in 1999 in countries and it is supported by United Nations.
IMD came into being, to create gender balance in society. empowerment, serious imbalance is being created in society women. This is against the principle of natural justice. IMD is in recognition of the selfless sacrifice that men do for their family, parents, wife, sisters, and children. Society has taken for granted the sacrif of men. All India Men’s Welfare Association masses about the hardships and silent sufferings that men undergo. IMD is an occasion for honoring and remembrance of the contributions of men. In India men are the victimized gender generally depicted as selfish, egoistic, huge stress on men. The ill effect of this is seen, in the huge number expectancy. In India, number of men committing suicide is the double women and foeticides are dramatically dawn of civilization, men are being considered disposable gender.
Recently published statistics from National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India reveals the shocking figures of suicides of men. The figures for year 2010 are 61,453 husbands Vs 31,754 wives. The data portrays an outraging and explosive percentage increase of 400% in the suicide rate of men compared to that of women. Unfortunately Indian society has been turning to this silent genocide of Indian men. disproving all the lies being spread by feminists that women only are at the receiving end.
AIMWA demands “Right to Life” for Men
The responsibility of these self annihilated innocent male lives ultimately rests with the Government. The Government cannot simply shrug its shoulders off this responsibility and pass off these suicides as being due to ‘financial reasons’. However in reality, as per the analysis of NCRB itself, the contribution of “financial reasons” to suicide is a meager low of 2%. AIMWA strongly cautions the Indian government on neglecting the suicides of Indian Married males and allocate adequate budget to spread awareness of domestic violence on men and provide adequate redress mechanisms at the social and legal levels so that lakhs of innocent men who can be still be saved can claim back their “right to life”.
As a part of “Right to Life” campaign, AIMWA will be actively involved to Provide counseling to married /unmarried men facing emotional, physiological, physical or financial violence at the hands of their spouses, families or in-laws. Spread awareness in the society and media on the issue of Domestic Violence on men. Assist in creating framework for Protection of Men from Domestic Violence act (PMDVA). Harassment of men going unnoticed Millions of Men are unduly harassed because of plethora of gender biased laws like IPC 498A, Protection of Women against Domestic Violence, Act, 2005(fondly called as DV by the abusers and Lawyers), CrPC 125, Guardians and Wards Act, Hindu Marriage Act, Hindu Adoptions and Maintenance Act etc etera. Indian courts preferably treat the husband as a free ATM machine. Not contended with existing gender biased laws, Indian Government is creating more such gender biased.
laws. Prominent amongst those being Protection of women from Sexual harassment at Workplace Bill, and the proposed sexual assault law, which will give a potent weapon for any unscrupulous women to extort money from men. Additional burden being placed on Men Maharashtra Government is also contemplating to create new law for rights of wives in property owned by husband in collusion with the feminists. Succession Law already exists for women to claim right in “Father’s property”(ALL THE GIFTS AT THE TIME OF MARRIAGE CONVERTED INTO DOWERY AS FATHER IN LAW DONOT WANT TO GIVE PROPERTY RIGHTS TO THERE DAUGHTER AS A MAN.) So that now a woman is doubly benefitted. All such future laws are with the sole intention of extraction of easy legal money from men. All India Men’s Welfare Association condemns such step by the Government. Any law which showers only rights and NO responsibilities are strongly disapproved. We condemn the government policy of creating parasites out of women under the name of women empowerment; instead Government should focus on reducing the suicides of Men. The impact of all these responsibilities and expectations is tremendous amount of stress on Indian Men. This is resulting in a very high number of suicides amongst Indian Men and particularly married men who are at the receiving end of the corrupt law enforcement agency, biased laws and judiciary.
Men are not heard at any forum of law-making, judiciary and Government. As a mark of protest, members of AIMWA will be wearing black ribbon across their mouth. Men are ridiculed to such an extent that in modern era a man cannot speak or voice their concern either at home or elsewhere. AIMWA strongly demands formation of National Commission for Men and Men’s Welfare Ministry who will look into various issues of Men and protect them. The recent census has shown that there are few Men than women beyond the age of 60 years.
Appeal to Judiciary
In the realm of above discussions, it is appealed to the judiciary to consider men as a human being in all cases involving men in marital disputes and put a break on the dwindling population of married men. We also would like to request judiciary not to view fathers as free ATM machines and not to consider their children as weekend TV programs. World over the concept of shared parenting is being acknowledged wherein fathers have equal rights as mother over their upbringing of children. Those wives who have completed graduation and higher studies should be encouraged to look for jobs or conduct business and become self-sufficient rather than seek alms. They should be refrained from becoming a parasite.
