Many of us blessed to have our wonder full father in our life; so on the eve of father day, they really deserve a big Hug from us.
But men like Rahall, a 35 years old IBM engineer, will be in night mare. In spite of having a court order by which he allowed to visit his only son , his ex-wife had made all effort to deny the same in last 4 visiting date. This time also he will be denied to meet his son and in spite making all effort , but not sure that he can meet the child on the eve of #Fathersday .
3 times he brings the fact to court, but in return he only gets date after date. The judge failed to understand it is the Child right to have access to meet his fathers, than it is a father or mother right.
It’s not Rahall along, lacks of Indian men’s fate will be like that, if you don’t believe go to any court, father are seeking the visiting or custody of Child, had been denied right way, asked to pay huge money as maintenance , but in return they even not allowed to meet their own child for a mere 2 or 3 hours in weekend forget about giving the Child custody.
When we go through the Suicide note of various News of Men in India, found more than 70% cases the main reason they had been deprived to meet their own Child and unable to bear the pain lead to depression and suicide.
In last 2 years we had tried to bring the same burning issue to at least more than 240+ MP along with ministers like #SushmaSharaj, #MenkaGandhi , #NarendraModi , # RajNathSingh take some few names , but all gone in deaf years.
But there are some NGO like Savefamily Foundation, does not stop their effort to bring some smile to many men in India via their Free Self Supported, Self Volunteered, Help Line SIF-One: #Call08882498498.
Non-Governmental Organisations fighting for "gender-neutral" family laws will hold country-wide rallies on June 20, activists said on Sunday.
They are seeking implementation of the Law Commission's report on providing joint custody of child/children in cases of matrimonial discord/breakdown.
"On June 20, a day before the Father's Day, we will hold a nationwide rally to demand shared parenting to be made mandatory in accordance with a draft Law Commission recommendation of May 2015," Kumar V. Jahgirdar, president of Bengaluru-based Child Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting (CRISP), told IANS on phone.
"The government of India ought to take steps to move a bill - as per Law Commission draft - in the coming session of parliament, with necessary amendments in guardianship and custody laws," he added.
Swarup Sarkar, founder of Delhi chapter of Save Family Foundation NGO, said suicide by married men owing to matrimonial disputes in India were on the rise.
"We keep getting cases of men not able to get access to their biological kids. During counseling, we find that many such persons harbour suicidal tendencies because nobody is bothered to even listen to their problems. We demand a separate commission for men in line with the panel for women in India," he said.
"The government has to consider Law Commission findings in view of changes in Indian society. If a woman can multitask, there is no reason why a married man can't perform domestic chores, including raising children," Jahgirdar added.
The Law Commission's draft law submitted to the government on May 22 proposed amendments to existing guardianship and custody laws. The draft provides for consideration of welfare of children as paramount while deciding custody issues.
"There is disparity in importance given to principle of welfare of children by different legislations regulating custody and guardianship," Law Commission chairman Justice A.P. Shah said."As a result, in fiercely fought custody battles, there are no ways to ensure that the interests of the child are actually protected," he said.
The draft law proposed children should have access to grandparents.
Sudha Rajashekar, who heads the grandparents' wing of CRISP, said grandparents often were victims of their children's matrimonial discords.
"There is no law in our country that protects our rights as grandparents in case of matrimonial disputes of our children," she said.
She advocated a law on the lines of those pertaning to inheritance and succession to ensure old people's right to have access to their grandchildren in case of marital discords and breakdown of marriages.
So, we appeal to all, plan some awareness activity in your area, write memo to Government authority, use social platform, and write blog, share twitter to remind all:
“It's not father or mother right, it is Child Right to meet or have access of their Father on the eve of #Fathersday. Don’t deprive Your Child Right.”
