1 married man ends life every 9 minutes in India!

Shocking statistics — how lopsided laws in favour of women are talking a toll on men in India who are committing suicide in droves as they get harassed by estranged and vindictive wives. My close friend spent two months in jail because he was falsely accused of dowry harassment by his in-laws and wife (who later divorced him after claiming a hefty compensation of Rupees ten lakhs in cash). Worse, such scheming women after divorce can now claim half of the share of ancestral property inherited by the husband that has been passed down through generations of his family. Laws have to be fair and just to both the parties. You cannot blow your fuse and make them so lopsided that the other side is forced to commit suicide to escape harassment. Same with tenancy laws introduced by that deranged idiot Nehru who hated property owners as “revanchist fascists.” Today, if some tenant squats on your property, it is impossible to remove him. Many widows and old people have lost their property this way to thuggish tenants who refuse to vacate. The idiotic tenancy laws even allow the rented property to be passed down from tenant father to his son, showing middle finger to the poor sod who owns the property!

1 married man ends life every 9 minutes in India!

Every nine minutes a married man commits suicide in India due to alleged misuse of section 498a of IPC against them, taking the toll to around a whopping 64,000 every year, says a report.

“National Crime Records Bureau statistics reveal more incidences of suicide by married men than by married women. In 2012, approximately 64,000 married men committed suicide vis-a-vis 32,000 married women,” says D S Rao, president of Hridaya-Nest of Family Harmony, an NGO, quoting a survey by it.

As per Section 498a the husband of a woman or his relative who subjects her to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term of up to to three years and shall also be liable to fine.

Rao said the misuse of 498a also leads to suffering of old parents as well as the family members and relatives of the men against whom the complaints have been lodged.

“The law is not serving its purpose and is instead being used by a section of the people to vent their anger and extort married men and their families,” claimed Amit Gupta, an official of the NGO.

    It is not just having or showing a strong or unreasoning desire for revenge or no longer close or affectionate to someone( alienated) attitude of women,but extortion of money from her husband with consultancy of Lawyer
    to lodge fabricated case in court in also common in practice.
    In that these women are getting full support from their father ,mother,brothers and other relatives.

      “Whoever, being the husband or the relative of the husband of a woman, subjects such woman to cruelty shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine. The offence is Cognizable, non-compoundable and non-bailable.”
      This had passed by Indian Parliament in 1983, Indian Penal Code 498A, is a criminal law (not a civil law)
      THE HUSBAND, HIS OLD PARENTS AND RELATIVES ARE IMMEDIATELY ARRESTED WITHOUT SUFFICIENT INVESTIGATIONS and put behind bars on a non-bailable terms. Even if the complaint is false, ONE WILL BE PRESUMED GUILTY UNTIL ONE PROVES ,THAT HE IS INNOCENT.

      SO EVERY MARRIED MAN ARE AT RISK AND IT IS DANGEROUS FOR THE SOCIETY.

      It is common to hear of harassment of wives by their husbands.
      THESE CASES HAPPEN EVERY DAY.
      But harassment of husbands by their wives is a trend that is growing. Hundreds of such harassed husbands gathered in legislators’ home to press for amendments to IPC section 498A or the Dowry Act which they say is misused by wives to harass their husbands
      Harassed husbands meet in city

  3. This is the cycle of ‘Karma’. Justice at cosmic level operates at different level and in a rather strange manner. The chickens have come home to roost.

      “Justice at cosmic level operates at different level and in a rather strange manner”
      The police say it is ‘really hard’ prove the cases as false.

      “Till now we have not been able to prove that themes cases are false because they are cases of mental torture. How would you prove that mental torture has not taken place?”said senior officer of police.

      SO IT IS RATHER STRANGE FOR POLICE ALSO.

      AND THE FINDING OF WOMEN ACTIVISTS ARE ALSO …..
      “This (the findings of the NGO) is nothing but a product of male chauvinism. There is still a huge section of women who need to be sensitized about their rights and who are regularly tortured,”

      INTERPOL, which issues Red Corner notices to arrest criminals all over the world, has stopped issuing notices pertaining to Section 498(A) (dowry harassment) cases registered in India.

      THERE ARE ABOUT 3,000 REQUESTS FOR RED CORNER NOTICES FROM INDIAN GOVERNMENT PENDING WITH INTERPOL.

      The inspector-general of CID, said there are as many as 120 cases from Andhra Pradesh pending with Interpol for the past eight months.
      Sources in the CBI said Punjab tops the list with nearly 300 cases.
      According to sources, there is no law pertaining to dowry harassment in US and other developed countries and hence the Interpol is in dilemma whether they can issue Red Corner notice based on the Indian law.

      “The mater has been discussed with US embassy officials recently. However, there was no improvement in the status,” the inspector-general of CID said. “There was no delay in other criminal cases,” he added.

      The external affairs ministry had sent several representations to INTERPOL explaining the seriousness of the cases booked under Section 498 (A).
      However it failed to get any positive response from them.
