New marriage law for Muslim women

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 19, 2008

The All India Muslim Women Personal Law Board (AIMWPLB) has released the Shariat Nikahnama that they claim would give equal rights to both Muslim men and women.

Women belonging to both the Shiite and Sunni sects, are demanding a revolutionary nikahnama that does away with contentious issue of triple talaq (divorce).

Entitled to divorce
If the board has its way, a Muslim woman would be entitled to seek divorce if her husband was found having illicit relationship with another woman.

The board has also rejected any divorce done through SMS, email, phone as well as video conferencing, besides rejecting divorce done on provocation.

A Muslim woman can seek divorce if she is forced by her husband to indulge in unnatural sex. She can also seek divorce if her husband contracts Aids.

“People use SMS, email and the internet to give talaq in the absence of a witness. Such ways have been banned in the new Nikahnama,” said Shaista Amber, President of the AIMWPLB.

“We have framed the new nikahnama strictly in accordance with the tenets of Islam, which clearly prohibits any kind of harassment or oppression of a married woman by her husband,” Amber said.

She added that the sharia also entitles a woman to get separated even when the husband refuses to grant a divorce. “Besides extra-marital relationship, [the guidelines] include absence of physical relationship between the husband and wife for more than a year, abandonment of the wife for more than four years, failure of the husband to look after the wife and family or any kind of ill-treatment or torture,” says the new nikahnama.

The new nikahnama has 17-point guidelines for marriage under the sharia for bride and groom, while eight points on the divorce process.

Key issues
Controversial points of new nikahnama

Triple talaq said in one go will not be acceptable

Talaq to be spaced out over a period of 3 months

Talaq not be allowed via phone or SMS

New Nikahnama insists on free will for the girl in case of nikah

Talaq cannot be given under the influence of alcohol

Talaq given to pregnant woman should be considered illegal

Legal nuances ‘free’ dowry death accused

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 18, 2008

MUMBAI: Legal technicality came in the way of justice.

A sessions court on Monday acquitted four accused in a dowry death case because the victim’s dying declaration was not recorded by a special executive officer (SEO).

Rita Baricha, 23, married Hemant in 1997. She gave birth to two daughters. In the first information report (FIR) recorded by the investigating officer, Rita had said that Hemant, her father-in-law Dhanji, her
mother-in-law Madhu and brother-in-law Naresh taunted her regularly for being unable to bear a male child. The entire family lived in a Kanjurmarg chawl.

In her statement, Rita had said that her husband accused her of misbehaving with her in-laws. He also blamed her for ignoring household duties. When she met her parents in Andheri on September 11, 2000, they advised her to keep her husband happy instead of picking up fights with him. 

The next day she had a quarrel with her mother-in-law. While they were arguing, her husband allegedly slapped her and told her to set herself on fire because she had failed to bear a male child. She was doused in kerosene, allegedly by her mother-in-law, and given a matchbox too. Rita apparently set herself on fire inside the bathroom. When she realised she was burning she ran out of the bathroom, according to the prosecution. A neighbour, Sandeep Kadam, wrapped her in a blanket and took her to Rajawadi Hospital. Rita had suffered 85 per cent burns and she died on September 18, 2000.
Special executive officer Suvarna Karanje told the court that she had asked her ‘worker’ to record Rita’s statement. She later signed the declaration, which did not have Rita’s signature.

“The court accepted the first dying declaration (recorded in the FIR). The second one was not accepted because the SEO had not recorded it herself,” said additional public prosecutor Kiran Raykar.

Rita’s father Laxman Baria had filed an affidavit with the police about her daughter being harassed by her in-laws for a male child. But he later told the court that only her mother-in-law (she died during trial) had harassed her and not the other accused.

“If Baria had supported the prosecution, it would have corroborated Rita’s statement in the FIR which was accepted by the court. He backtracked possibly because his two grandchildren live with Rita’s in-laws,” said Raykar.

Minor elopes with sister’s husband, surrenders

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 18, 2008

MUMBAI: A 17-year-old girl who was allegedly abducted from her college surrendered before the Malad police with her sister’s husband on Wednesday. The class XII student of SNDT College told the police that she had eloped with him, since the two were involved in an affair.

According to the police, on March 4, Sonali (name changed), a resident of Andheri (East), appeared for her HSC examination. Her mother was waiting outside the college to take her home after the exam. Sonali, however, did not turn up. After enquiring with the college authorities, her mother approached the Malad police with a missing complaint.
When Sonali’s elder sister’s husband Virendra Pandey, 22, who stayed with them, also did not return home, her family approached the police, and the missing complaint was converted into a first information report for abduction.

“We sent a team to Uttar Pradesh, the native of Pandey. But we could not trace them,” senior inspector Maruti Rathod said. Pandey lived with his in-laws in Mumbai, but he had left his wife, Anita, with his parents in UP, they said.

Rathod said that during investigation, the police learnt that Pandey had enrolled in a computer class near Sonali’s college and that they were having the affair for the the past few months.

Pandey convinced Sonali to run away with him. On March 4, she stole Rs4,000 from her house and fled with Pandey.

They first went to Matheran and then to Pune, where they stayed together. But they surrendered after they exhausted the money. After a medical examination of Sonali, Pandey was charged with rape and abduction considering that the girl is a minor, the police said.

Women Cann`t kill ?

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 18, 2008

MUMBAI: A teenage girl here allegedly killed her close friend by poisoning her and then tried to commit suicide, the police said Monday.

The 17-year-old was angry with her friend Ignis Joseph because the latter shared a close relationship with her boyfriend, the police said. She apparently suspected that they were having an affair.

“The accused took Ignis to the church Sunday night and gave her a drink laced with poison, after which she also consumed the drink,” Gyaneshwar Phadtare, deputy commissioner of police, said.

After returning home, Ignis complained of stomach pain and started vomiting. She was rushed to hospital, where she was declared dead. The girl who allegedly gave Ignis the poison was admitted to the same hospital, and is reported to be in critical condition.

More women now raise voice against dowry

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 18, 2008

The number of cases reported in the past five years has almost doubled

//Yea TRUE, but out of all 98% are False, As per Renuka Chowdhury – eDitor

MUMBAI: The number of dowry-related cases being reported in Mumbai has almost doubled in the past five years. Around 368 dowry cases were registered in Mumbai in 2007 compared with 193 in 2003.

For a cosmopolitan city like Mumbai, the increase in the number of dowry-related offences comes as a surprise. And the reason cited most often is that more women are now refusing to tolerate harassment for dowry by in-laws and spouses.
The concept that originated in the upper-caste families as wedding gifts to the bride from her family gradually became the most dreaded part of women’s lives. But they are now increasingly raising their voice against the menace.

“Women are now aware about the options they have to stand against any kind of violence against them,” said Nirmala Samant-Prabhavalkar, former chairperson of the state women’s commission.

According to her, the scenario began changing ever since the post of the dowry prohibition officer was created at local police stations. “Earlier, such cases were sent to the collector’s office and then came to the police station. However, now the victim does not have to run from pillar to post with her complaint,” Prabhavalkar said.

Joint commissioner of police (law and order) KL Prasad agrees. “Women are now refusing to tolerate such harassment, and several NGOs and other bodies providing guidance to them are proving helpful,” he said.

According to Prasad, the city police are being sensitised to tackle such issues with urgency and empathy. “We are following this procedure of free registration where a police officer will not refuse to register a case unless it is completely unimportant. Dowry harassment cases are treated with an attitude to support the victims,” said Prasad.

He said policemen across the city are also undergoing a sensitising programme for the past few months. The programme also trains them in tackling women related cases.

Parents-in-law can’t be forced to maintain daughter-in-law: SC

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 17, 2008

New Delhi: The latest round of `Saas-Bahu ki ladai’ has gone decisively in favour of the motherin-law. The Supreme Court has ruled that a woman, if neglected by her husband, cannot eye her
mother-in-law’s property for getting maintenance.
Maintenance of a married woman is her husband’s personal obligation and the property in her mother-in-law’s name can never be the subject matter of the obligation to maintain a daughter-in-law even after the death of her husband, said a Bench comprising Justices S B Sinha and V S Sirpurkar.

A woman lawyer, who had filed several cases against her parents-in-law in Chincholi, Karnataka, had even taken recourse to litigation to see that their property was auctioned for getting the maintenance she was entitled to from their son.
Disapproving the extra-legal arguments taken by her and deprecating the trial court and the Karnataka High Court overstretching the law as well as their jurisdiction to go by her
pleadings, the Bench said a woman could seek attachment of properties only if her husband had a share in it.
This means, if the parents-inlaw’s properties were self-acquired and not inherited, then their daughter-in-law could institute suits seeking attachment of those properties which stood in the name of her husband and not against those owned by his parents.
Referring to the plea of the daughter-in-law, Sonalben, the Bench said she might be entitled to maintenance from her husband and the decree in her suit could only be against his properties.
“The decree, if any, must be executed against her husband and only his properties could be attached for that but not of her mother-in-law,” said Justice Sinha, writing the judgment for the
Bench. Referring to the HC order, which was challenged by mother-in-law Vimlaben, the apex court said it suffered from “total non-application of mind” and was “wholly unsustainable”.
“The said orders might have been passed only on consideration that Sonalben is a harassed lady, but the fact that Vimlaben is also a much harassed lady was lost sight of (by the HC),” the Bench said.

Directing release of the attached properties to Vimlaben, the court directed Sonalben to give Rs 50,000 to her mother-in-law as cost of litigation.


As a general guideline to the trial courts, the Bench said: “Sympathy or sentiment, as is well known, should not allow the court to have any effect in its decision-making process. Sympathy or
sentiment can be invoked only in favour of a person who is entitled to it. It should never be taken into consideration as a result whereof the other side would suffer civil or evil consequences.”

Boy knocked down, burnt alive for seeking damages

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 16, 2008

 //If same thing happened to a Girl in India, all media will make such big issue, give their own special story, that she was tortured, Kidnapped,Raped,butchered and Burnt alive. But if a Man or Boy dies, Police refuse to take complaints, no Indian government Authority comes to help or listen, and it’s hardly comes in any news media.

That’s INDIA, My Great Country (myfoot)


New Delhi, March 15 (IANS) A 10-year-old boy was set on fire for demanding compensation from members of a wedding party who were travelling in a car that hit his bicycle. The police Friday suspected a family rivalry behind the incident.The incident occurred Thursday evening in Sungapur village of Alipur area in north Delhi, when Sanjeev’s bicycle was hit by a Qualis car carrying the wedding party, according to villagers.The men were returning to Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, after attending a marriage at Bhkatarpur village, near Sungarpur. The boy too had attended that wedding.

When Sanjeev demanded that they pay for his damaged bicycle, the enraged men in the car first thrashed him and then dragged him 150-200 meters into a field. The men, who were reportedly drunk, tied his legs and hands and then dumped the boy on a heap of cow-dung patties and set them all ablaze.

The villagers spotted the flames and rushed to douse the fire. They found the boy was charred from head to ankles.

“Villagers found the boy with legs tied inside the burning heap of cow-dung patties while they were sprinkling water to douse the flames. Later, they recognized the boy on the basis of his feet. The boy was immediately pulled out, but he was dead,” said Charan Singh Kandra, the local legislator.

Meanwhile, senior police officials told IANS that the boy was first strangulated to death and it seems that in a bid to destroy his body and evidence, the assailants, who could be four-five in number, torched him.

“Dragging the boy over 150 metres from road to the field strongly suggests that an insider or people sharing enmity with him might be behind the act. We are probing the matter from all possible angles,” said a senior investigating official.

Sanjeev’s bicycle and his footwear are missing, but no eyewitness has approached the police till Friday evening.

“We have only came across a boy who last saw him on his bicycle. The boy plainly refuses he knows anything more,” the official added.

Following the discovery of the boy’s body, hundreds of villagers stormed the wedding venue and tried to vandalise it though most guests had left. The mob of over 200 men damaged windowpanes of some cars parked nearby.

The victim’s father, Virender Singh, said the family only came to know of the tragedy when they heard of fire.

“We were already searching for Sanju, but rushed to the field only when we came to know that a boy’s charred body has been found there. I recognized my son from his half-burnt feet,” said Singh, who operates a JCB crane.

“The police must arrest the killers or we would not spare them,” an infuriated Singh added.

The police, called around 11.30 p.m., immediately took possession of the body and sent it to the Babu Jagjeevan Ram Hospital for a post-mortem examination.

The angry villagers then staged a demonstration outside the Alipur police station, blaming the police for letting the attackers escape.

They shouted slogans against the police and blocked the Delhi-Chandigarh highway for hours. Normal vehicular movement was restored three hours later.

The villagers also staged demonstrations Friday afternoon against the police. They said the police were being sluggish and shoddy in their investigations.

The situation in the area continued to be tense Friday and the police deployed additional forces to prevent any untoward incident.

“We have registered a case of murder and have sent three teams to Meerut to locate the members of the wedding party. Five people have been detained and further investigations are under way,” said Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Dinesh Kumar.

SMSes and emails can be used as evidence: Judge

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 15, 2008

Pune, December 31 Can a child’s testimony be used to verify his father’s hostility towards his mother? How can you prove if a wife’s death was accidental, a suicide or a consequence of marital harassment? What rights does a wife driven out of her husband’s house have, when their divorce is pending in court? These were some of the questions that were answered by the Pune Family Court judge Vinay Borikar as a part of a three-day workshop on the importance of the Indian Evidence Act in women related cases, held on Tadiwala on Sunday.“In the past couple of years, the number of divorce cases has gone up which is accompanied by the urgency to resolve marital disputes as well as deliver justice, if a women is being unfairly treated by her husband,” said Borikar who elaborated the amendments in the Evidence Act that may be used by a victim of violence to her benefit. “Often when women are driven to suicide by the harassment that they face or are killed by husband or in-laws, the victim’s parents and relatives are often unable to procure the evidence to implicate the offenders. However, recent amendments to the Evidence Act has permitted that electronic media can be used as evidence and the result has been that SMSes or e-mails have been submitted to the court, as evidence of harassment,” said Borikar.

“If a married woman commits suicide, which is suspected to have occurred due to harassment from her marital home and if she has confided to her parents about the harassment being meted out to her before her death, the testimony of her parents can be used to prove the case of abetment to suicide,” said Borikar.

According to the Act’s “presumption as to abetment to suicide” section also states that if a women dies ‘accidentally’ or commits suicide within seven years of marriage, and its proved that she was subjected to harassment, then its assumed that the husband and the in-laws must have incited her to take her life, until proven otherwise, he added.

Borikar related his experience in resolving a case of domestic violence when in an effective judgment, given last month, he had ordered a man who had driven out his wife and their two children, to house them in a separate accommodation. The man had refrained from going on higher appeal and had complied with the order.

“With a drastic increase in the crimes against married women, despite specific women-related laws like the Protection of Women against the Domestic Violence Act, 2005, several cases suffer because the victims’ families are unable to furnish the appropriate proof. Hence, we realised that it was essential that women’s organisations, who are the first agency that the bereaved women approach, need to be educated about what kind of relevant evidence will ensure that the women get relief,” said advocate Asuntha Pardhe of the Chetana Mahila Vikas Kendra, that organised the workshop, which was attended by representatives from several organisations in the State.

College girl held in Dera chief attack case

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 15, 2008

Karnal: A 21-year-old college girl from Mansa in Punjab was on Friday arrested in connection with the bomb attack on Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s motorcade while it was passing through the city on February 2.

Parveen, who is the daughter of one Sadiq Mohammad of Bhame Kalan village in Mansa district, was produced before a court which granted the police a 7-day remand for questioning her.
“She is the fifth accused to be arrested in this case so far,” Deputy Superintendent of Police SS Bhoria told a news conference.

He said a case under Section 120-B (conspiracy) has been registered against Parveen, a BA first year student of Mohindra College in Patiala, Punjab “as preliminary inquiries revealed her involvement”.

She later dropped out of the plot to eliminate the Dera chief, who has earned the wrath of the Sikh clergy following his appearing before followers in an attire similar to the dress of 10th Sikh Guru Gobind Singh.

The Dera chief escaped unhurt when a tyre stuffed with explosives was hurled at his convoy on National Highway-1 which passes though the city on February 2.

cruelty-to-wife cases can’t be settled out of court

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 13, 2008

MUMBAI: A high court bench comprising Chief Justice Swatanter Kumar, Justice Dhananjay Chandrachud and Justice J P Devadharowever has ruled that cruelty-to-wife cases can’t be settled out of court. However, the three judges also held that an HC can definitely exercise its power under its inherent jurisdiction, and quash a 498-A complaint in the larger interests of justice, to maintain matrimonial harmony and to prevent abuse of the legal process. The court specified the principles of criminal jurisprudence that need to be followed.

The judgment essentially says that a husband or his family facing a charge under 498-A of inflicting physical or mental cruelty on the wife cannot effect a settlement with her even if the two have patched up or the woman has agreed to forgive her husband or if the charges are based on flimsy pretexts to begin with and prima facie false. This means the husband can get arrested and even convicted and sent to jail for up to three years.

But there could be a way out from the legal quagmire that a husband may find himself in once a 498-A case is slapped on him. For that, however, only the HC can help. The HC has to be moved for quashing of the first information report (FIR), probe or criminal proceedings. The judgment has held that a HC has the power to quash such non-compoundable offences so as “to secure the ends of justice”. However, the judges also held that quashing of a complaint has to be on the basis of the facts of each case and the power must be “sparingly used”.

The 102-page verdict said, “An offence of cruelty under IPC 498-A is not merely a crime between husband and wife but a crime against society, and therefore the parties themselves cannot compound the offence.” The judges have, significantly, also held that not just offences under 498-A, but also other offences such as murder, rape, attempt to murder and causing grievous hurt—which are not specifically mentioned in the law as ‘compoundable’ offences—cannot be settled between the complainant and the accused. Section 320 of the CrPC lists offences that can be settled between parties at any stage of the prosecution.

The issue was referred to a full bench by a single judge of the Bombay high court who had to decide on an appeal filed by a Solapur-based husband Abasaheb Honmane who, after being held guilty of an aggravated form of bigamy and sentenced to jail for five years, had sought the leave of the court to compound the offence and also to set aside his conviction.

A full bench is normally formed in exceptional circumstances when there are conflicting judgments of two or more division benches. Here, it was a single judge who felt that a division bench judgment was not the correct interpretation of law and hence referred it to the Chief Justice since it was an important law point that needed to be settled.

Besides, before the court there were ten other similar cases on the question of compounding of offences such as robbery, dowry harassment, kidnapping, causing serious hurt with weapons, causing a miscarriage without the woman’s consent and so on. In each case, the prayer was that the FIR should be quashed, as the complainant had agreed to settle the matter. Most of these cases had arisen out of disputes in a matrimonial relationship.

The Chief Justice, who wrote the judgment for the bench, noted, “No statute can provide for all situations when the legislature enacts a law.” He said this as one of the points of reference was also whether the high court had the inherent powers to quash or compound complaints when this was not spelt out clearly in any law, including the CrPC, which is the procedural Bible for the criminal law courts.

The full bench held that Section 482 of the CrPC which speaks of the court’s “inherent power” to pass any order to “meet the ends of justice” has “intentionally” been worded widely by the legislature to ensure a larger impact on the procedural law governing investigations and criminal trials. “The inherent powers of the high courts are not meant to be static just like the law is not static and develops and varies according to the progress of time and need of society.”

The HC noted that until recently even a complaint of cheque bouncing was not compoundable but the government recently amended the law to allow parties to go in for “out-of-court settlements”.

Amit Desai, an expert defence counsel, said, “There is a need for criminal law to be amended to make an offence such as Section 498-A compoundable. It is time for the legislature to consider a change in the law since these are private disputes.”

The legislature has provided an alternative statute—the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005, to provide greater safeguards and protection to women by providing for a chance of “resettlement of matrimonial home and relationship prior to actual registration of crime under Section 498-A of IPC”.

But the legislature still did not make the Section 498-A offence compoundable. “While interpreting and implementing the law, legislative wisdom has to be given preference,” the judgment said, adding, “It can very well be presumed that the legislature, while enacting a law, is aware of the difficulties faced in implementation of such a law.”

House wife slept with 18 yr old,still accused him with rape

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 10, 2008

A homemaker accused her 18-year-old servant of rape and stabbed him to death, but a narco test now reveals the shocking truth that she had been sleeping with him for five years

Rajni (name changed) stabbed her 18-year-old servant with a kitchen knife, claiming he was trying to rape her.

When the 36-year-old Mumbai homemaker was brought to Bangalore for a narco test, she stunned investigators by revealing that she had been sleeping with the boy for five years, since he was 13.

Rajni is the wife of a bar owner, and had developed physical intimacy with Anand (18), who hails from Bihar.

Anand had worked in Rajni’s house as a domestic help for 10 years, and also used to help out in the bar. He had been given a room in the couple’s apartment.

In April 2007, Rajni was sleeping in her room with her two-and-a-half-year-old child.
Her story was that Anand had barged in and tried to rape her after threatening her with a knife.

“Fearing he would injure my child, I snatched the knife and stabbed him,” she first told the police.
She said she had shouted for help to her husband and her brother-in-law. The latter lives on the second floor of the apartment.

They dragged Anand to the corridor and thrashed him. A profusely bleeding Anand was taken to hospital where he was declared brought dead, she said. Neighbours who witnessed the beating turned hostile in court.

Though Rajni pleaded that she had killed Anand in self-defence, the court directed the police to subject her to a narco test.

During the test, Rajni not only explained how she had stabbed Anand, but also gave details of their illicit relationship.

She confessed she had lost interest after a while, and and had started turning down his pleas for sex.
On the fateful day, Anand went to her for sex, but she refused since she was trying to put the baby to sleep.

Anand got agitated and threatened her with a table knife, she said during the narco. “I had no option but to defend myself and my child and jumped on him to snatch the knife,” she explained. “I stabbed him thrice on his abdomen and later dragged his body to the corridor and informed my husband and brother-in-law.”

Rajini also admitted she had to concoct the story of a rape attempt to conceal her relationship with him.
“I started beating him. My husband and brother-in-law joined me. They were so angry they beat Anand who was already profusely bleeding,” she said.

I have no option but to defend myself and my child from him and jumped on him to snatch the knife, she explained. I stabbed him thrice on his abdomen and later dragged his body to the corridor and informed my husband and brother-in-law, she said.

India not to commercialise sex work

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 8, 2008

 //BUT PROMOTE EVERY HOUSEWIVE AS A PROSTTUTE, saying wife has right to enjoy outside of marriage — eDitor

New Delhi, March 7 (IANS) India will not consider legalising commercial sex or giving licences to brothels, Minister for Women and Child Development Renuka Chowdhury has said.

“I am ready to legalise brothels or red light areas if the sex workers say their decision is informed. In most cases their choice is not informed but is forced due to poverty or other reasons,” Chowdhury said.

“Many sex workers ask me why I am withholding this issue. But I patiently listen to them and, in turn, ask them whether they would allow their daughters to enter the trade. The answer has always been a complete silence – and they drop their demands,” Chowdhury told IANS on the sidelines of a human trafficking conference.
The Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Women & Child Development, Smt. Renuka Chowdhury lighting the lamp at the inauguration at a workshop on female foeticide during the celebration of international women day.

The conference was organised by the UN office on Drugs and Crime along with the ministry of women and child development ahead of the International Women’s Day March 8.

The minister said her government has no intention of legalising or licensing brothels, but would remain committed to combating human trafficking, especially of women and children.

Human trafficking means recruitment, transport, transfer, harbouring or receipt of people by means of threat, use of force or other forms of coercion like abduction for the purpose of exploitation.

According to UN estimates, approximately 150,000 people are trafficked within South Asia annually, with children and young women being lured from their homes with promises of a good job, good marriage or stardom in the entertainment industry.

Many are forced into prostitution or slavery where they suffer unspeakable indignities and hardship.

Organisations like the Bhartiya Patita Uddhar Sabha have been demanding the legalisation of commercial sex workers since 1984.

Khairati Lal Bhola, president of the Sabha, said: “The government must accept this demand for at least the better health and education of the 5.4 million children of sex workers.”

Bhola said a survey conducted during 1990-96 revealed that there were more than 7.5 million call girls, 2.38 million prostitutes, 1,100 red light areas and 300,000 brothels across the country.

Now, more than a decade later, the numbers has gone up manifold and the condition of sex workers is still vulnerable, especially due to the threat of diseases like AIDS.

Pressing for the need to legalise prostitution, he said: “Not only will the government earn a tax on their income, it will help in chucking out agents, middlemen, goons and corrupt police officials who take hafta (protection money) from them.

“Sex workers can earn more to provide education to their children, who can be prevented from inheriting their mother’s profession.”

Chowdhury, however, said human trafficking of women largely depends on the principle of demand and supply.

“My government is planning to bring amendments to the existing Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act and clients visiting brothels would be penalised,” she said.

Asked why the government was not directing police to clamp down on red light areas in the country, the minister said: “It is feared that it may spread to residential colonies if we take such measures in the present scenario. After analysing the consequences, we will act accordingly,” she said.

Chowdhury appreciated the 24 percent increase in fund allocation to her ministry by Finance Minister P. Chidambaram and said: “The government understands the needs and demands of women and is committed to its promise to empower them.”

Micro-finance schemes that allow women to borrow money from the government to start their own small industries of weaving, knitting, painting and others have yielded tremendous results, she said, adding that now the focus would be on encouraging women to do highly skilled jobs and earn more.

Patil congratulates women for shaping destiny of country

New Delhi, March 7 (IANS) Indian women were transforming the “social order into a more just and equal one”, President Pratibha Patil said Friday as she greeted women a day ahead of International Women’s Day.

India’s first woman president said successful women should assist in eliminating social evils like female foeticide, infanticide and dowry system and educate the underprivileged girl child.

“On the occasion of International Women’s Day, I extend my greetings and felicitations to all my sisters in their continuing role and their relentless effort in shaping the destiny of our country,” she said in her message.

International Women’s Day, which will be observed Saturday, is a global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women.

Highlighting the role of the women in the freedom movement, Patil said: “Our women folk inspired by Mahatma Gandhi came out of their homes to take part in the freedom struggle.”

“Beginning with their determined efforts in the days before our freedom, today our women continue to strive to transform the social order into a more just and equal one.”

She said women continue to make their mark but should help in removing social evils from the country.

“Now, many gifted women are making their mark in their chosen professions and each one of them can assist in eliminating social evils like female foeticide, infanticide, dowry etc.

“They should come forward and help to educate the hapless underprivileged girl child. The empowerment of women is the most effective tool for development as well as poverty alleviation.”

Someday, there’ll be women combatants: Antony

New Delhi, March 7 (IANS) In a significant statement Friday, a day ahead of International Women’s Day, Defence Minister A.K. Antony said women could someday be inducted as combatants in the Indian armed forces.

“I’m sure that at some point of time it will happen,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a function organised by the Armed Forces Organ Retrieval and Transplantation Authority (AORTA) here.

On Wednesday, Antony had cited operational reasons to rule out inducting women as combatants into the three services.

“A study carried out by the services has recommended that women officers be excluded from induction in close combat arms where chances of physical contact with enemy are high,” the minister said in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha.

Antony’s statement Friday is a clear indication that the issue is far from closed.

Currently, women are eligible for permanent commissions in the medical, nursing and dental services of the armed forces. They are also eligible for short service commissions in these services as also in the support arms of the armed forces.

In this context, Antony noted that women were initially inducted in the medical streams of the armed forces in 1927.

“In 1992, they were inducted on five-year commissions (in the support arms). Then we raised this to 10 years and subsequently to 14 years.

“It’s an ongoing process. It is possible that some day women will be inducted in the combat arms,” Antony maintained.

The issue had blown up into a major controversy two years ago after the then Indian Army vice chief, Lt. Gen. S. Pattabhiraman, was quoted in his report as saying the forces “could do without” women.

Political parties and women’s organisations were quick to react, demanding that Pattabhiraman apologise and withdraw his remarks.

Pattabhiraman complied, adding for good measure that he had “been quoted out of context”.

Currently, 5,137 women officers serve in the armed forces. They include 4,101 in the Indian Army, 784 in the Indian Air Force (IAF), and 252 in the Indian Navy. This includes women granted permanent commissions in the Army Medical Corps and the Army Dental Corps and their equivalents in the other two services, as also in the Military Nursing Services.

In the army, women serve in support arms like the Corps of Signals, Army Ordinance Corps, the Corps of Electronic and Mechanical Engineers, and the Army Service Corps.

In the Indian Air Force, women are inducted in all streams barring the fighter stream. In the Indian Navy, there are restrictions on posting women officers aboard ships and submarines.

Most militaries worldwide induct women but only a few allow them to perform active combat roles. Among these countries are Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Norway and Switzerland.

Countries like Britain and Israel allow women to serve in combat arms positions like the artillery roles but exclude them from infantry units.

The US allows women in most combat flying positions.

Winds of change blow among rural Indian women

New Delhi, March 7 (IANS) Most of them are illiterate and many conform to the stereotypical image of the ghunghat-draping rural Indian woman. But they are the harbingers of change at the grassroots – raising their voice against alcoholism among men and for educating girls and delivering speedy justice.

Be it in Uttarakhand in the north or Gujarat in the west or Jharkhand in the east, this IANS correspondent came across the same story during her journeys in the country.

Shanti Devi, who took up a campaign against alcoholism, hails from a village in the Nainital district of Uttarakhand.

“We couldn’t tolerate that our hard earned money was being spent carelessly by our men on alcohol. It was becoming a serious problem. That’s why we decided to take up the campaign against alcoholism,” Shanti Devi told IANS.

“The problem of alcoholism was widespread in our region. So instead of just one village, we formed a federation of three groups called Chakdalar, Choti Nai and Chamma. More active participation by women was a solution to the problem,” she said.

The women raided liquor shops in their area and in the process were roughed up by some of the men.

“It was not easy raiding the liquor shops. We were often slapped and beaten up by the men. Fortunately, some men supported us and together we went on hunger strikes and took out campaigns to the streets shouting “Jua Sharab Band Karo”.

“We also approached the Block Development Officer to help us,” Shanti Devi, 40, said.

Radhika Devi, vice president of the Chakdalar group, is illiterate but when it comes to discussing issues that affect society and actually doing something about it, she never steps back.

“Most women in our groups have to face a lot of problems because of constraints from the family. But I have been lucky as my family always supported me and let me travel to tap my potential,” she said.

“As women community leaders, we are closer to the ground realities. That’s why we can assess the situation and come up with practical and creative solutions to problems.”

The women are now planning to improve the education scenario in their villages and ensure that girls go to the school.

In the Kutch district of Gujarat, where the literacy rate is as low as 64.06 percent for men and 40.89 percent for women according to the 1991 census, women have taken it upon themselves to educate their daughters.

The Kutchi women, who do embroidery and earn as much as their male counterparts, if not more, play a major role in taking all household decisions.

“The young girls go to school and are not taught the art of embroidery and making handicrafts. But once they attain puberty, they start doing so and drop out of school,” Natha Behn of the Ludiya village in Kutch said while smiling at her 14-year-old sister-in-law.

Pavitran Vittal, an official of the state’s tourism ministry, said that considering Kutch’s low literacy rate it was encouraging to see young girls going to school.

“People have to understand that it’s important for girls to complete their education, but this is the first step in the right direction. Considering that women have an important say in the family, this initiative by them is a ray of hope.

“Moreover, they make sure their daughters are capable of earning their own bread and butter. They are empowered,” Vittal told IANS, during one of the visits to the Kutch region early this year.

In Andhra Pradesh, Satyavathi, who is part of a women’s self-help group, spearheads the movement in her village to solve issues of land to the poor.

The group of 83 Scheduled Caste households that she is part of has been cultivating 54 acres of government land for more than two generations. Despite government rules that landless people in possession of government land should receive titles to the land, they had not received legal ownership.

“I raised the issue with paralegals who documented the issue and through our self-help group we submitted the issue to the district administration. The paralegals had to work hard to gain access to all the records.

“Finally in February last year all the 83 households received legal titles to the land,” she said.

“It feels good to bring about a change, no matter how big or small it may be,” Satyavathi added.

Nari Adalats are another institution through which rural women are making their presence felt. These are women’s courts that deliver speedy justice in tough cases like rape, child marriage and even divorce – mostly in just two weeks.

Madhu Lakra, a member of the Nari Adalat in Ranchi, Jharkhand, said stopping the marriage of a 12-year-old girl to an “aged” man who claimed to be a Maoist and putting a wealthy man behind bars after he raped a minor girl were her achievements in life.

“I have been hearing cases for the last two months and have solved at least 15 of them,” said Lakra, a postgraduate in Hindi from Ranchi University.

What started as a small gathering of rural women in Gujarat in 1995 has gained credibility over the years. Nari Adalats across India have solved over 23,000 cases so far.

8th March Dhana, Jantar Mantar Delhi on International womens day

8th March Dhana, Jantar Mantar Delhi on International womens day

More photos can be found here  http://www.flickr.com/photos/23782115@N02/ 

The Protest/Dharna at Jantar Mantar, Delhi by MASI and All India Forgotten Women, supported by SIFF and its sibling organizations on 8th March, 2008 International Women’s Day was a Good Success. The topic was Women against Women Protection Laws.

Around 15 ladies, mothers and sisters along with 40 men had come forward to participate in the Dharna. It was well covered by NDTV, ETv, India News, X News, AAj Tak, Total TV, Azad News, ANI, Zee News etc. Amongst the print media, Punjab Kesari, Tribune, Nababharat Times and Hindu covered the Dharna. Outstation ladies like Uma, Mrs Sharda, Dr Mrs Indu Subhash, etc spoke over the phone on the occasion which was very well received.

As usual, a lot of people chipped in and it was a great team effort.

Every event of this magnitude has many silent heroes who made it happen

Many of them come to mind….. NOT in any particular order

Swarup, the main pillar of SFF, overall in charge in coordinating with our media friends.

Neeraj and Sandeep took the responsibility of printing the Slogans and Banners. Sandeep was also instrumental in faxing some more media contacts through our new contact developed in Press Club of India during our Book Release of GHRS.

Uma spared some time from her busy schedule and prepared the press release and memorandum to be meant for sending to the dignitaries.

Gurdarshan our serial SMS er also enthusiastically SMSed hundreds of victims from our victim list.

Rahul also actively took part in the SMS campaign and SMSed more than 125 victims from the victim list. Rahul was also the first to arrive at the venue of Jantar Mantar along with Komal to direct the tent wallah to the place of our choice of Dharna. Rahul also sponsored 100 McDonald McBurgers for the victim families and the journalists.

Sattu made around 100 phone calls from his office to inspire victims to join the Protest.

Andy’s mother took special pains and called over 100 victims from our Delhi victim list and inspired all to bring their mothers and sisters at the protest.

Vihan, the dependable took the responsibility to fax all our media contacts from his office. He was also instrumental in SMSing 100 SMSs to our victims from our victim lists.

Bipin Kumar Mishra, our Delhi RTI specialist, came forward and shouldered the responsibility in translating the English Press Release into Hindi, got it typed, laser printed and xeroxed. The Hindi Press Release was a serious shortcoming of our previous Dharnas.

Ajay, Sandeep’s hired personnel distributed the Invitations and the Press releases in the Press Trust Boxes in specially designed MASI envelopes.

Wasif, shouldered the responsibility in submitting the Memorandums and collecting them from the office after it gets stamped from the PMOs and President’s office.

Dr Anupama, as usual our key speaker spoke on the scale of the issues involved and gave a clear perspective on things.

Arvind’s sister, Vernal Green’s mother, Sudhir’s mother, Sandeep’s mother, Mrs Gupta, Mrs Arya, Mrs Prem Ahuja the lady women inpector, Rohit Jain’s mother, Kochars’s mother, the sardarni who has been kicked out through DV by her daughter in law, and the numerous ladies whom I don’t know who all presented their views in front of the media.

On Women’s Day, do spare a thought for men

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 6, 2008

Ahmedabad, March 5 After suffering in silence for long, husbands are on the march. And the last one to join their ranks is an NRI businessman who hails from Bhavnagar. Sixty-nine-year-old Deepakbhai Patel (name changed) is involved in a bitter matrimonial dispute. Back in Gujarat, his wife has filed around 70 cases of dowry and domestic violence and property in Bhavnagar and Ahmedabad. The charges are all trumped up, he says, the purpose just to teach him a lesson. That was when an acquaintance in Kuwait told him about an Ahmedabad-based pan-India organisation of men persecuted by disgruntled spouses.

Deepakbhai says: “The Akhil Bharatiya Patni Atyachaar Virodhi Sangh (ABPAVS) gave me strength. I met many men who were similarly wounded, whose wives had lodged frivolous cases against them. I found the resolve to soldier on.”

Dalsukh Patel, a US-based NRI businessman, is in a similar quandary. His wife has filed a dowry case against him and is even in possession of his house in Ahmedabad. “I have to live in a dharamsala, my own house is out of bounds for me. But I will fight to get my name cleared. The support of the Sangh had toughened my resolve,” he says.

The ABPAVS, a organisation of tortured husbands founded in 1994, has seen a small but steady rise in the number of NRIs joining its fold. Of its 32,000 members, 13 are from abroad. Three joined last year, 10 this year.

Dashrath Devda, founder president of the ABPAVS, who was inspired from his own traumatic experience after his wife filed a false dowry case against him, says: “The number of NRI men has definitely increased. There are many more who still have to come out of the closet. In our society, it is not easy for a man to say that he gets beaten by his wife.”

The ABPAVS members does not only include men, but also mothers and sisters of such men.

“The anti-dowry legislation is so clearly loaded in favour of women that men have little chance of fighting it,” Devda says.

“Dowry is a big problem, but men being falsely implicated in it is no small issue.”

The domestic violence law can so easily by misused by a vengeful wife. “We have among our members IAS and IPS officers, doctors, engineers and people from all walks of life. The problem of being exploited by wives is far graver than it is believed to be,” he says.

Membership of the organisation comes after a background check. Men with a history of alcoholism, or violently behaviour are usually shown the door.

Complete personal details of the members, including the cases filed against them, is kept.

To create more awareness and sensitivity in the society about their plight, the ABPAVS is holding a demonstration where over 250 members are expected to attend on March 8 — International Women’s Day.

As Devda, who was a driver by profession, says: “The laws right now are like Maruti Esteem for the women. At least have a small run-down Maruti 800 for the men.”

Invites you to an

All Women National Protest on the occasion of

International Women’s Day 2008

WOMEN AGAINST MISUSE OF WOMEN-PROTECTION LAWS

Every 20 minutes an innocent woman is arrested under IPC Section 498A

just because she is related to a man!

Aren’t mothers and sisters women ? Don’t they deserve a life of dignity and respect?

Does penalizing innocent women under false cases bring justice to genuinely abused women?

Does women’s empowerment mean destroying family harmony and creating a fatherless society?

Is protection of women’s rights synonymous with gross violation of basic human rights?

Is legal terrorism the solution to all women’s problems?

In order to address these burning questions, we invite you to join us at

Jantar Mantar, New Delhi

Letter to President of India – Problems of Mother INDIA

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 4, 2008

I wish you to read this letter of mine in which I’ve  expressed my thoughts and dreams about our great country.

First of all let me  introduce myself. I’m Surabhi of 10th standard studying in Rotary West  School in Mysore.

I wish to get a chance to talk to you, but don’t know  if my dream can be made to. So I thought I will at least correspond  with you because I know what ever busy schedule you have you always make  yourself free to spend some time for children.

I’ve strongly made up my mind to do something for our country though not as much as you expect  at least a little to make my memories in this earth a happy one.

I’ve  started gathering information about Pollution, Population and Poverty. I wish to share with you a bit of information I’ve collected and my  idea about it hoping that you can suggest how well I could go about  planning it. Well I personally feel that it’s not only soldiers who have to  contribute: but also duty of every citizen. Though may not be a big  sacrifice like our soldiers but a little that each can do according to our  capacity. Sir as you know today we are facing many problems, such as  Poverty, Pollution and Population.

I really believe that population is never going to cause much trouble if the manpower is utilized in the right and proper way. We can definitely work, if all take the trouble of educating and guiding others. How can we underestimate ourselves by  comparing to the other countries? And of course Poverty will never be found  if we take care of Population. They go as the two faces of the same  coin. Now only thing, which we need to look into, is Pollution. How can we  contribute to prevent it or even stop it? Here are some examples of  different countries and their care towards nature.

Today many programs to  warn people have been carried out in Europe, America Australia and  Japan. They also celebrate the world pollution day like us; but in a  different way. The earth protecting soldiers of ‘green peace’ climbs the  chimneys of the big industries, which eliminate more smoke, and they will  write, “Pure air is our right”. They will put enamel paint on the seals  to see that no hunter is going to hunt them for their skin. They also  tie the mouth of the pipes inside the rivers, which will be lead out by  the industries.

Not only this: in 1995 there was a special program to  find the small beautiful insects called Ladybird in Britain. A number  of students, children and also many people searched all over and at  last, they did find many species of Ladybird. Another such group work was  regarding the frogs. Many frogs while crossing the roads in rainy season  die under vehicles passing through on roads. To avoid this the young  students help them in crossing the roads. The most amazing thing is; they adopt the highway, which pass through their place and look after them  with care. They never wait for the government to come and repair the  road because they really can’t be patient till a decision could be taken  by the Government and getting through loss their life because in their  action only the minds of students are involved.

In some parts of America they adopt rivers. There will be river wardens to look after those  rivers. The government will give a badge to them so that they will be  provided employment and also a good recognition. They will be paid for  their work. By all these people get employment and there will be no  pollution and cleanliness will be maintained.

Though all these can’t be  taken overnight but it has become a part of their daily routine, which we  are very much aware. We do have many solutions for all these problems. I  feel strongly that if we see something good in others it’s better we  adopt them. Anyway we have more natural facilities and we could do  definitely more than anyone. We can conduct Re-Cycling competition in which  new materials have been taken out from waste. In each and every colony  the children of that particular colony can make a group and look after  their colonies. Strictly banning plastic bags can also help to reduce  pollution. Conducting talks on pollution may bring some awareness among  the students. I’m just talking about the children because they are  tomorrow’s citizens.

Now it’s the time to question ourselves as to where we  are lagging behind ? I think children are the one who can make this  country a developed one. But today names of heroes and heroines will be in  the tip of the tongues but not that of freedom fighters. Today seeing  bad films has spoiled the children. We are going abroad and learning  their culture instead of spreading ours. All these because of lack of  patriotic feeling in one’s heart.

Ma’am I don’t know whether I’m right or wrong. But I felt that you are the only person with whom I can share my thoughts because I know that you patiently listen to children. If I have made any mistake please pardon me.
With Love and Regards

Surabhi

Dowry demand, Woman given acid to drink, dies

Posted by 498A_Crusader on March 1, 2008

Ghaziabad, Mar 1 (IANS) A 30-year-old housewife died here after she was brutally beaten up by her husband and in-laws demanding more dowry and then given acid to drink instead of water.

Mamta, a resident of Shaheed Nagar locality of this city, was assaulted by her husband Satish and other members of the family on Wednesday night. They demanded that she ask her parents for more money. When she collapsed half-conscious from the beating and asked for water, the husband’s family gave her acid to drink. She died in hospital later.

The police have registered a criminal case against the husband, the father-in-law, mother-in-law and sister-in-law.

According to the police, Mamta, who belonged to Garh Mukteswar in Uttar Pradesh, was married to Satish in 2001. Her husband began harassing her for dowry right thereafter. But Mamta pleaded that her parents were small farmers and could not give more money.

But Satish, whose small shop was not doing well, kept harassing her for money. The couple had three children – Manish (6), Shivam (5) and Beenu (3).

Mamta was taken to Delhi’s Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital, where she died Thursday night. Her brother Niwas Singh filed a complaint with the police.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Circle Officer S.P. Singh told IANS that all the accused were absconding.

//Law should be equal to all, crime is crime, and crminals should treated with punishent of AN EYE FOR AN EYE.

Delhi Police fined for illegal detention

Posted by 498A_Crusader on February 29, 2008

New Delhi, Feb 29 (IANS) The Delhi High court Thursday slapped a fine of Rs.50,000 on the capital’s police force for illegally detaining a person last year.

The court also asked the Delhi Police commissioner to hold an inquiry against the officials responsible for the illegal detention.

Slapping a fine of Rs.50,000, judge S.N. Dhingra also asked the petitioner, Purshottam Ramani, to file a suit against the police officials for mental agony and harassment.

“You (petitioner) should sue Delhi Police for the mental harassment and agony they have caused you,” Dhingra said in his order.

Ramani was arrested by the Delhi Police Sep 25 last year under the Preventive Detention Act after a minor property dispute and was released Sep 30.

The high court last week slapped a fine of Rs.1 million on the Delhi Police in two other cases of illegal detention.

However, this inter-nation cross-flow has with the passage of time generated a new crop of legal issues in the realm of private international law which comprises rules a court would apply whenever there is a case involving a foreign element.

It is rather ironic that while the British Parliament is working its way through The Human Fertilization and Embryology Bill to legalize parentage from in-vitro fertilization births and recognize same sex couples as legal parents of children conceived through the use of donated eggs, sperms or embryos, in India, 27,000 children die each day, thousands of children go missing each month, many NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children are kidnapped from abroad and brought to India, and thousands of children are denied access to their father by estranged and vindictive Indian women.
However, India is yet to enact any concrete law that will help prevent childhood deaths, kidnappings, denial of visitation rights to fathers and stop International parental child abduction (removal or retention of a child across international borders by one parent). International parental child abduction to India, either in contravention of court orders or without the consent of the other parent, is sadly an increasing phenomenon that causes acute emotional distress to the abducted child.

A fugitive foreign citizen/permanent resident kidnapper who is declared a proclaimed offender in matrimonial and custody proceedings in his/her country of citizenship/domicile (because of the wrongs he/she did to her ex-spouse and in-laws) kidnaps the foreign citizen children of the marriage and is provided safe haven in India (sometimes enabled by kidnapper’s family’s political/bureaucratic/legal connections). The left behind NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen parent cannot even see or talk to his/her children removed to India and is denied all access because the kidnapper is allowed to file false complaints with the Indian legal system using the easy to misuse laws.

The NRI/PIO/foreign citizen kidnapper is easily able to obtain injunctions from the Indian guardianship courts (despite the lack of jurisdiction) against the return of the kidnapped NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children to their place of habitual residence (because the Indian Courts ignore all current and even pre-existing custody orders from the foreign courts). These occurrences find daily mention but no straightforward solution for the NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizenunder any Indian law.

The Government of India is in the process of acceding to the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. However, before that is done, and India becomes a member of about 80 contracting convention nations, an appropriate Indian legislation will have to be enacted for its implementation. In this way children removed to and from India will be reunited with their aggrieved parent and India will no longer be a sought after destination for parking removed NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children from foreign jurisdictions. Also, foreign courts will be encouraged to permit NRI kids to freely visit India without fear of abduction. The draft of the Indian Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction Bill 2007 meant to secure the prompt return of children wrongfully retained or removed to India proposes to ensure that the rights of custody and access under laws of contracting states are respected by providing for prompt removal of wrongfully removed children.

The salient features of this proposed law are as follows:

  • A Central Authority for performance of duties under the Hague Convention for securing the return of removed children by instituting judicial proceedings in the High Court.
  • The appropriate authority or a person of a contracting country may apply to the Central Authority for return of a removed child to the country of habitual residence.
  • The High Court may order return of a removed child to the country of habitual residence but may refuse to make such an order if there is grave risk of harm or if it would put the child in an intolerable situation. Consent or acquiescence may also lead to refusal for return of a child by the court.
  • The HC may refuse to return a child if the child objects to being returned upon it being satisfied that the child has attained an age and maturity to take into account his views.

Based on the experience from other countries that have ratified the Hague Convention, it is critical that all loopholes that will prevent the implementation of this be plugged. This (the exploitation of loopholes)is likely to be a serious problem in India and the political/bureaucratic/legal system will continue to provide a safe haven for the NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen kidnapper, especially if the kidnapper is the mother. One example of a loophole is that abducting parent starts custody proceedings in India under the 30 year old laws before/in parallel with proceedings started by the left behind parent under the Hague Convention. Before India signs the Hague convention,appropriate laws will have to be enacted to prevent the exploitation of loopholes. In this way, children removed to and from India will be reunited with their aggrieved parent and India will no longer be a safe haven and sought after destination for parking removed NRI/PIO/OCI/foreign citizen children from foreign jurisdictions.
Furthermore, India should take steps to prevent child abductions within India, stop children being taken away from the gender that is denied custody rights, and penalize kidnappers and custodial mothers/fathers who deny visitation to the other parent.Mostly Indian women bargain child custody as blackmailing tool to get easy Divorce and huge sum of Alimony.Even Father is a natural guardian, but hardly 2% of Fathers get Child custody. Custody Should be Equal to both gender and child should be raised with both Parents love and Affection.

We request all of you to sign this e–petition to support the above-mentioned petition.

GGRS threatens to sue Renuka, Girija

Posted by 498A_Crusader on February 24, 2008

The Gujarat Gaurav Raksha Samiti (GGRS) today threatened to file a suit in the High Court against Union Women and Child Development Minister Renuka Chowdhury and National Commission for Women (NCW) Chairperson Girija Vyas for ”deliberately lying and lowering the credibility of the two women institutions.” The samiti which has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, seeking immediate action against the two women leaders, also demanded a public apology from the duo for deliberately lying to the people through print and electronic media.

Taking strong exception to Ms Chowdhury’s Gujarat poll-eve statement that the State had not implemented the centre’s Domestic Violence Act, 2006, Samiti president Vijay Wadhwani charged the minister with having defamed and deeply hurt the sentiments of Gujarati people by her ”totally baseless and false statement”.

In fact, Mr Wadhwani claimed, that Gujarat was among the first states to implement the Domestic Violence Act, and ranked sixth in the country as far as the registration of number of cases was concerned.

The newly-formed apolitical organisation had created a flutter in political circles here, by putting up unnamed banners across the city yesterday where in it had threatened to unmask two national-level leaders before the Gandhi Nagar Gruh today. Sensing trouble, city police had made elaborate security arrangements in and around the venue since morning before the group members started assembling at the stipulated venue with banners, placards, newspaper clippings and video tapes of Minister Chowdhury and Ms Vyas.

The samiti president also criticised Ms Vyas, who had reportedly told a news channel that proposal had been sent to the Law Ministry to enhance punishment to dowry givers.

”This is a totally contradictory statement as the official website of the National Commission for Women– ncw.nic.in — mentions about its proposal to exclude dowry givers from punishment,” Mr Wadhwani said and warned the UPA government against the NCW’s proposal to exclude dowry givers.

She cried `Papa, Papa’, yet parents abandoned her

Posted by 498A_Crusader on February 23, 2008

JAIPUR: She pleaded ‘Papa, Papa’. But it failed to change the minds of her parents as they abandoned their 12-year-old girl at the Lalgarh station in Bikaner, local media reported.Sonu, a resident of Khetwali area in Bihar, was happy when her parents told her they were going to visit Rajasthan.

“First I was taken to Ramdevra shrine near Pokhran in Jaisalmer district for prayers. Then my parents brought me to a temple in Bikaner. But at the railway station they told me that I would have to live here on my own,” Sonu said with tears in her eyes.

I pleaded again and again. I cried. But nothing stopped them from travelling back on the train,” Sonu said.

“They did not even think about where would I live and what would I do in this unknown city.”

“I had gone to the station Saturday night. I saw this girl crying. I asked her why and she narrated everything to me. I brought her to my house in Rampur colony,” local resident Rameshwar Prajapat said.

The residents of the colony took her to the police station where the officials told them to keep her for a few days, hoping that her parents would return.

“I do not want to go back to my parents,” the girl said.

My mother used to beat me regularly and my father never used to stand up for me.”
//THIS IS CRUDE TRUTH AND REAL FACE OF INDIAN WOMEN,STILL IN CHILD CUSTODY WOMEN GET CUSTODY, EVEN SHE IS PROSTITUTE OR ABUSER, AND HUSBAND HAS NO RIGHTS TO OPPOSE HER. FATHER OF A CHILD HAD NO RIGHTS TO SPEAK AGAINST TRUTH AND INJUSTICE IN INDIA –eDitor [ http://mynation.net ]

She is presently staying in a Nari Niketan – a state-run women’s home – in Bikaner. “We will conduct a medical examination and would also try to find her parents in Bihar. The girl knows the name of her parents and knows the area too. But she is not able to give us the exact name and location of the village,” a district administration official said.

Meanwhile, a professor in Rajasthan Agriculture University has come forward to offer shelter to Sonu.

“I want her to be in safe hands. I have offered her shelter. I can take responsibility for her education,” Sunita Verma, assistant professor in Rajasthan Agriculture University, Bikaner, said on telephone Tuesday.

Female foeticide and infanticide are common in India. Poverty, ignorance of family planning and cost of dowry have been cited as possible causes.

I am a slave to my wife: Rajat Kapoor

Posted by 498A_Crusader on February 23, 2008

New Delhi, Feb 23 (IANS) Bollywood director-actor Rajat Kapoor says women might play ornamental roles in reel life but they are more powerful than men in real life.

“As far as Indian cinema is concerned actresses are still considered decorative while heroes take the cake. However, in real life and specially in relationships, women are more powerful than men,” said the actor who often dons the mantle of director too.

“A woman keeps a family or any relationship intact. In my home I am a slave to my wife (Meenal) and daughter (Rabia),” Rajat told IANS.

Audiences have heaped praise on the multifaceted star for his latest directorial venture “Mithya”, which stars Ranvir Shorey, Neha Dhupia and Naseeruddin Shah.

His stint in Bollywood started as a director with “Tarana”. Soon critical acclaim followed with “Raghu Romeo” and “Mixed Doubles”.

He has no commercial hits to his name yet and most of his films target a niche audience, but he is unfazed.

“I have a certain sensibility and I make films in accordance with that. I am not interested in making an ‘Om Shanti Om’ because it does nothing for me. When I watch it, I am bored.”

As an actor, he started his career with telefilms and television serials. The talented star forayed into big-time acting with the blockbuster “Dil Chahta Hai”. Rajat’s performance was largely appreciated in “Corporate”, “Bheja Fry” and “Khoya Khoya Chand”.

Currently, the actor is hosting a celebrity chat show on entertainment and lifestyle TV channel NDTV Good Times and National Geographic’s quiz show “Lufthansa Nat Geo Genius”.

However, he resists any plans of acting in soap operas or making them.

“I am not interested in doing television serials. Selling serious content is difficult through daily soaps. Trivialisation of news and TV is going on worldwide and one can’t fight it.

“Moreover, one can’t make a good serial because the economics of the small screen are so bizarre.”

Rajat’s forthcoming films include “I am 24″, “Halla” and “Raat Gayi Baat Gayi”.

HUMAN CHAIN PROTEST on misuse of 498A I.P.C at Mylapore on 23.2.2008

Posted by 498A_Crusader on February 21, 2008

              PRESS RELESE 

HUMAN CHAIN PROTEST on misuse of 498A I.P.C at Mylapore on 23.2.2008 

Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF) is a registered non-profit, non-funded, non religious, non political and non-governmental organization espousing mainly the cause of saving the Indian Family System from the assault and onslaught of Legal Terrorism.

We have a global membership of 8000 victimized husbands consisting mainly of high earning and/or borrowing middle class IT professionals, Artists, CAs, Doctors, Engineers and Entrepreneurs, Consultants etc. We have a well established presence in the Internet Websites and Blogs. We are constrained to take to streets to attract the attention of the PUBLIC towards our cause. While we strongly fight towards our selfish agenda we also fight for some good common cause

We also espouse the cause of family oriented elder Women, Pregnant Sisters and Minor Girls and innocent Children. They are systematically victimized and tortured as they happened to be the relatives of the husbands. They are the real and worst sufferers of the Legal Terrorism.

We believe the Great Indian Family System is being systematically attacked at the roots so as to eliminate and destroy the precious eastern family values which we consider a treasure to nurture and boast of. We believe the vested western interest that veiled considerable financial clout are behind this attack with an avowed objective of preventing India from becoming the Super Power of the World. This would be evident from the funding pattern of the so called women’s organization like Lawyers Collective. Center for Social Research etc who channel their funds from west

We strongly oppose the misuse of 498A I.P.C, DV Act D P Act etc by the unscrupulous, greedy and unethical wives who are encouraged by the Judiciary, Police and the Advocate fraternity due to the misplaced sympathies or with ulterior motives.

We have great respect for Women. We also consider our mother and sisters in our family as women. We consider that it is only the husband who gives more than 50%  status and respect and we in fact married her while 498a stake holders has extreme lip sympathy only

We demand women be given Equal Rights, Responsibilities and Authority in the Society. We demand true empowerment of women by way of 50% reservation for women in Legislature, Judiciary, Bureaucracy, Police and Army

                           

We are determined to fight against this well organized crime of Blackmail Racket in all its forms and manifestations perpetrated in the name of destitute wife by the unscrupulous wives, Police, Judiciary, Media and the Legal Fraternity.

We strongly believe the intention of the Politicians irrespective of Party affiliations and Legislature is not to persecute the Families but only to prosecute the Dowry takers and wife beaters according to LAW.

Instead of protecting the WOMEN of BPL (Below Poverty Line) families  who are really tortured and beaten up and day in and day out for whose benefit this law was enacted the stakeholders of Blackmail Racket has hijacked the law and systematically extorting the educated and naïve YOUTH of India and destroying their families for the sake of money. They do not file cases on Rishshaw wallas and coolies who torture their wives even in public as they do not have huge money to be extorted

We strongly believe that under the guise of protecting women  the Police, Judiciary and Legal Fraternity has formed an invisible Cartel and persecuting the Indian Family System and created an 498a Industry with a turnover of not less than Rs3000 crores per annum and happily sharing the booty while the Media is unwittingly aiding the cartel

We have been peacefully conducting public protests / morhcas / dharanas / conferences throughout our country and abroad for the past 5 years.

We publicly protest the gross apathy and seek the attention of  the Government, Judiciary and the Bureaucracy who have failed to arrest the misuse of the above legal provisions, by unscrupulous money minded extortionist blackmailers

We are protesting in public near Nageswara Rao Park, Mylapore on 23.2.2008 between 9 AM to 6 PM, We expect a gathering of minimum 300 victimized husband with their family members. This public protest is likely to be inaugurated and held in the presence & blessing of  Mr. Prasanth – Cine Personality,Mr. Prandurang Katti – Save India Family Foundation,

We invite you surf thro the innumerable.valuable and relevant resources available at the following websites and blogs www.saveindianfamily.org; www.498a.org; http://mynation.net ; etc

We submit that we are all law abiding citizen of this country and opposed to the misuse of criminal laws in all its forms and manifestations enacted for the benefit of WIFE only and to the detriment of sister-in-laws and mother-in-laws by the unscrupulous elements of the society which is leading to the eclipse of The GREAT INDIAN FAMILY SYSTEM

We seek your Valuable your patronage and support for the just cause we are fighting against and help us in reaching the General Public with our message and demands

President into Feminist governance

Posted by 498A_Crusader on February 17, 2008

Rashtrapati Bhawan has now moved from e-governance to gender governance. APJ Abdul Kalam had gone all out for better people-government interface using technology through different e-governance modules. And now President Pratibha Devisingh Patil has embarked upon the gender parity agenda for the government. 

The President called officials from the Women and Child Development ministry, Rural Development ministry, Human Resources Development ministry and Agriculture ministry to know what the government was doing on gender issues.

Sources in the government told the Hindustan Times that the President was keen to know how the government was ensuring that gender parity was achieved in government schemes. “It was a kind of briefing taken by the President,” a senior government official said.

Patil wanted to know more about the actual impact of the government policies for women on the beneficiaries. Although government officials presented a slew of figures based on different studies the President wanted a more concerted effort, a senior WCD ministry official said.

The WCD ministry informed that 52 ministries have set up gender budget cells but still the allocation for women is not enough. The president was informed that a review of all laws related to women was underway to make them more gender sensitive. 

The HRD ministry officials spoke about special schemes and incentives to bridge the enrolment gap between boys and girls. They also told the President about the improvement of the girl child in primary education since the launch of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan.
