Men’s Rights Activists are dismayed at lack of political will to protect men or Boys.
fighting for men’s rights have expressed extreme amount of displeasure
and dismay at the Cabinet’s decision on the rape law.
discussion around the rape law gained ground after all media channels
unanimously hyped a single case of Delhi gang-rape (December 16, 2012)
and made it a national issue inciting public emotions against the male
gender and accusing the Government not doing enough to protect women.
This was despite the already existing toughly anti-male rape laws and 15
other laws targeted specifically against men which were draconian,
barbaric and unconstitutional in nature.
down to the pressure from the feminist dominated media, the Govt.
formed a committee under retired judge Justice Verma whose
recommendations sought to convert every intra-gender (male-female)
transaction into a non-bailable offense, punishable at the whim and
fancy of the woman. All this was done under cute names like stalking,
voyeurism, eve-teasing etc. Every definition of crime was not only vague
but one-sided. None of the definitions included abuse of men by women.
However, on 3rd February
2013, the Government passed an Ordinance called the Rape Ordinance
which identified a wide variety of sexual assaults affecting both the
genders and passed a gender neutral ordinance which covered male victims
of sexual assault as well. This was a historic move wherein, for the
first time in the history of India, a gender neutral law was passed
which recognized the abuse of men as well and sought to protect them.
the feminist and the feminist dominated media were extremely unhappy
about men being protected and created a lot of hue and cry over the
Ordinance being gender neutral and sought to nullify it calling it
And the shocker came on the 11th of
March 2013, whence the Government actually did a U-Turn, reverting back
the bill being gender biased and anti-male, renaming it as the “Anti-Rape Law” instead of erstwhile “Sexual Assault Bill”, leaving male victims of such offenses high and dry.
as we all know, it won’t be the case that with the passage of this yet
another anti-male law, which does not cater to the problems of the male
world, the lives of men are suddenly going to become risky.
of men have always been risky as primarily it is the men who undertake
huge risks in order to ensure cultural, technological and societal
progress and selflessly men have lost their lives for the same, be it
war or adventure or scientific inventions.
it is a case of 5 army-men losing their lives attempting to safeguard
the borders of India or a couple of fishermen losing their lives
accidentally as they undertake daily risk of fishing in troubled waters
in order to eke out a livelihood.
It’s just that, with this law, the lives of men are going to become riskier as now the streets have become extremely dangerousfor men as now,
man who gets entangled with a woman in any sort of argument, which can
be due to the woman’s fault or provoked by her will be converted into a
false case of stalking or voyeurism and the man would be immediately
arrested. For no fault of his, the man would be fighting a frivolous
victims of feminine sexual aggression, female sex offenders and female
rapists would be embroiled in false rape cases wherein the perpetrator
of the crime and the victim of the crime would just swap roles.
facing sexual assault, inappropriate touch, and sexual oppression from
girls and adult female relatives including Ayaahs would continue to face
the horror and grow up with an impaired psychology which will affect
their quality of life at every stage. It may potentially increase
criminal bent of mind in such boys as they grow up to become men and
this could rather increase the crime in the society than decreasing it.
political parties like Maharastra Navnirman Sena, Samajawadi Party,
Bahujan Samajwadi Party will face greater risks as their male political
cadre could be trapped in false cases of stalking and eve-teasing by
opposite parties, especially big and powerful political parties, and
this could be a serious blow to the political roadmap of these small
parties, who now have no option but to listen to UPA 2.
of false cases of rape, molestation, stalking, voyeurism, etc. and the
subsequent jailing and harassment of innocent men would contribute
towards the growing element of Gynophobia (fear of women).
This would result in men shying away from women and mingling with them.
In fact, already the helplines of men’s rights activists have started
ringing with queries like, “Is it OK to refuse to escort a woman at night?”, “Is it OK to refuse to a movie with a woman at night?”, etc.
will also affect the voting pattern as men’s rights activists have
vowed not to vote and to discourage others from voting for either
anti-male MPs or for those political parties who did not support the
gender neutrality of the bill. They’d rather people to vote for
independents or for parties like SP, BSP and the Trinamool Congress.
As per World News in UK along more than 64000 women had been convected for sexually abuse/rape the child . As India government failed to make the Rape law gender Neutral , will not massive women from such countries like UK will come to India and abuse the child , gang rape other women/men , as in India the same is not recornised as crime? Will not India became a safe heaven for such women as there is no punishment for rape the child, gang rape to other women and man by a women?
was extremely disheartening to see that the Government was bowing down
before a few women organizations and backed out on its decision to
provide the society with a gender neutral law. It is pertinent to mention here that the electorate of India has not voted for these women organizations, whosoever they may be.
electorate of India has voted the UPA 2 Government to power and wrested
the power of law-making in their hands and it becomes the duty of the
UPA 2 Government to ensure a safe and free society for all citizens
irrespective of caste, religions, sex and creed. Even the constitution
of India, vide Article 14, guarantees the same. And hence, this
regressive step of removing gender neutrality from the law is an
unconstitutional step by UPA 2 in the event of its failure to contain
the anti-male women organizations filled with male hatred.
Houses must not pass the gender-biased version of the bill and must
send it back to the Standing Committee for further review.
the Justice Verma Committee totally ignored the presentations sent by
the various men’s rights groups, the said Standing Committee should
invite these groups and take their views into consideration.
bill must not be passed in the absence of a strong misuse clause to
prevent false cases from becoming yet another industry of extortion and
must form National Commission for Men and Men Welfare Ministry in order
to avoid such last minute hassles and rushes in law making.
Only Gender Neutral laws must be passed.
Women organizations with vested interests and partisan agenda must not
be encouraged to such an extent that they can literally hijack the
