Vote for Anyone, Not for Congress!
April 19, 2009

Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF), Bangalore, the single largest NGO working towards the cause of Family Harmony, Gender Equality and Men’s Rights announces a flash dharna at the Gandhi Statue, M.G. Road, Bangalore tomorrow on 19th Apr. 09 to bring public awareness of the serious problems faced by the Indian husbands and their families owing to many anti-family legislations that have been introduced in the last three decades.

In the last four years alone, over 1,23,497 women have been arrested under IPC Section 498A alone, without any evidence or investigation, not for committing any crime under law, but only because they were related to a man. Noted women’s rights activist Madhu Kishwar acknowledged that IPC Section 498A is heavily misused, and that a significant proportion of individuals who approach “Manushi” these days are mothers-in-law and husbands who are falsely accused of marital cruelty and dowry harassment. Renowned IPS officer Kiran Bedi admitted that many poor and illiterate mothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, who are falsely charged under anti-dowry laws, are languishing in prison every year.

Inspite of The Honorable Supreme Court terming the Misuse of Section 498A as “Unleashing of a new Legal Terrorism on innocent husband’s family” and Domestic Violence Act as “one of the most clumsily drafted law”, the Congress led UPA government has not taken any corrective action and the entire families of Indian husbands are suffering today because of that. This is an extreme case of “bad governance” by Congress party.

Congress wants to divide the country based on gender and it wants to show itself as a savior of women for Vote Bank politics. In reality, Congress is most insensitive and brutal towards women of this country. Congress arrested over 1,23,497 women in last 4 years without investigation or evidence in last 4 years. Even pregnant women were not spared.
This shows how selfish and insensitive Congress is towards women and children, even though the Chief of Congress is a woman.
Divorce has sky-rocketed during Congress rule, as this party provided special incentive for women to file divorce and marry multiple times.
Congress has used hate speech. A Congress Cabinet Minister Renuka Choudhury says,” it’s time for Men to suffer”. That is hate speech and this minister was given ticket to contest elections.
Congress did not implement judicial reforms which were recommended in 2003. As a result, the divorce cases are increasing rapidly while there are no courts to handle these cases. That is extremely poor governance as young people’s lives are hung standstill in the middle.
Congress passed many bills in parliament without debate or discussion. This includes the Domestic Violence against women bill. Congress denied the protection to old women if they are harassed or thrown out of house by their daughters-in-law by making last minute changes in the law.
This shows Congress does not believe in democracy, otherwise why it will pass bills without discussions on finer-print?
Home Minister Shivaraj Patil and Women and Child Minister Renuka Choudhury were the most incompetent of all ministers. Renuka Choudhury did not make any provisions in law for prevention of abuse of children. She did nothing for Children. The only thing she’s interested in is media attention using her loud mouth.
Small Children are worst sufferers when there is a divorce or separation as they are cut off suddenly from one parent, in case of marital problems.
Thousands of children got separated from their fathers or mothers for prolonged periods starting from few months to many years due to Congress neglecting family courts, while it promoted rampant divorce everywhere in India. The damage Congress caused to the future generations is enormous.
Family Harmony is an election issue even in the United States. People there do not tolerate any party that promotes divorce and is insensitive to children. Barack Obama himself spent lot of time in his campaign talking about problem of children living with only one parent. But Indian Congress Party entirely neglects this issue. No Congress party leader has ever talked about family harmony as immediate need for Indian society. It is not even in their manifesto.
We are in no mood to forgive Congress for its insensitivity and bad governance, especially in the area of family harmony and family courts.
Congress has been a slave of foreign forces, which are pumping money into India to destroy our family system with lies and false statistics.
We also urge other political parties not to support Congress and abet “Family Breaking”.
So, we call for people to just “Divorce Congress”, after all Congress promotes divorce.

People must vote.
People must vote any party or even independents, but not Congress.
The message is for all political parties. Any party that neglects the family system promotes divorce will get “DIVORCED by Indian People”.
We do not mind to have a hung parliament and anther election. But, Congress has to go.
We warn all political parties if they neglect Indian family system, which is the envy of the world.
We’ve started a nationwide campaign to “Divorce Congress” and many of our members have stood in elections as independents.
Our activist Sudhir Anand has filed his nomination as an independent candidate in New Delhi Lok Sabha Constituency.
We have couple of thousand volunteers in New Delhi to campaign for him.
A Sorry state of the Justice System and Gender Equality in India; a feat achieved by the Congress Government in the last 60 years.

Every year, close to 4,000 innocent senior citizens are arrested (i.e. one innocent elderly person every 2.5 hours) under IPC Section 498A. Many retired elders have been ill-treated, thrown out of their own homes and deprived of their meager means of sustenance by greedy or vengeful daughters-in-law. Senior citizens are further harassed through false cases of domestic abuse and dowry harassment and denied mental peace during the last leg of their lives. More and more elderly parents are unable to depend on their sons for the fear of false dowry harassment cases by resentful daughters-in-law. The World Health Organization, in its report on India cited IPC Section 498A as one of the major reasons for the “Increasing Abuse of the Elderly in India”.

According to National Crime Records Bureau(NCRB) data of 2005: 52000 Married Men committed Suicides while 28000 Married Women committed Suicides.
2006 Crime Bureau Data: Married Men Suicide: 55452 vs. Married Women Suicide: 29869.
2007 Crime Bureau Data: Married Men Suicide: 57593 vs. Married Women Suicide: 30064.
Still there is no LAW to Protect Men, why?

We have repeatedly requested the Congress led UPA Government by providing all the data and official statistics of suffering of Indian men in general and husbands in particular and demanded that all Gender Biased LAW should immediately be made crime based void of any assumption that women never lie and men are born as Criminals. “MEN/WOMEN” word to be replaced by word “PERSON” and word wife/husband to be replaced with the word “SPOUSE”.

But it has fallen on deaf ears of the Congress led UPA Government and in return the Union minister for Women and Child Development makes the following derogatory statements against Indian men while being in office:

It’s the turn of the Indian men to suffer, as women suffered for long. (Its like Mughals had destroyed many temples, so let’s demolish all the Mosques in India).
Don’t trust Your Men; trust Condom in the name of reducing AIDS. (Forgetting the fact that relationships are based on trust alone. And she seems to be spreading the message to all the women to have sex without having any relationship with the men).
It’s Diwali Gift to Indian women (on the DV Act). (Within two weeks, four women were sent behind the bars under first DV act case in Pune and one age old women left her own house as her daughter-in-law walked into her house with all her friends and parents. Who was the gift for?).
Promoting family harmony and true gender equality is the need of the day, to ensure social stability and responsible citizenship in the country. We strongly condemn all the above-mentioned assaults on the human rights and constitutional rights of men, women, children, senior citizens and families.

Citizens may choose to vote for Congress and ensure that more and more suffering follows for Indian men and their families. Congress government has converted the Indian Criminal Justice system into a wholesale free money earning business through Legal Extortion from Husbands and their family members.

Vote for any party, but not for congress and give a clear message that anti-husband, anti-men, anti-family and anti-child law and policy will not be accepted in this country by any political party.

Politicians beware! Battered men, who no longer wish to be bullied by women misusing laws such as the Domestic Violence Act (DV Act) and the 498A for personal gains, are back with a vengeance and it looks like they mean business this time around. “We have decided to get together and take active part in the election campaigning process this year,” says Suresh of the Save Indian Family Foundation, a non-governmental organisation working to save Indian families from being broken.
“We decided to campaign because we realised that political parties are trying to create a gender divide by creating a women’s vote bank. They have been turning a blind eye to issues concerning men,” he says with conviction and cites the recent case of a techie called Syed Makhdoom, who committed suicide in Bangalore after being separated from his son by his wife.
“Syed’s case is not a one off incident. In the last few years, suicides by men have gone up as have false cases against them,” he claims. “We are demanding a separate ministry for the welfare for men. Also, we want the DV act to be made gender neutral. At the moment, the DV act prescribes punishment only for men. It goes without saying that any party willing to back us will receive our support. We will campaign for such parties. We have been sending mails to political parties in this regard,” Suresh says.
Talking about his organisation’s campaign in certain other parts of the nation, Suresh claims, “On the net, we have already put out 300 blogs and more are to follow. At the field level, we intend to distribute flyers and conduct rallies.” He adds, “In Delhi, our campaign is going strong. In Nagpur, we conducted two rallies. Chennai is in the last phase of elections. So, we are just beginning our campaign here.”
Kumar Jahgirdar of CRISP, an organisation working to the protect the rights of children and that is working along with SIFF in this regard, points out that their campaign, though small, might be able to make a difference, nevertheless.
“We might not be able to create a big impact but even a small change can prove crucial,” he says.
Ask Jahgirdar for approximately the number of people they hope to reach out to and he says it is difficult to say. “On the net, a blog is read by so many people. And it is difficult to gauge the kind of impact they have. But we do intend to create an awareness,” he says hopefully.

Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF) and Children’s Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting (CRISP), NGOs working towards the cause of Family Harmony, Gender Equality and Child Rights announces a “Candle Light March” in condolescence of the unfortunate demise of Mr. Syed Makhdoom, who committed suicide on 5th April 2009 after he was no longer able to bear the domestic violence being done on him by his wife and in-laws as they trapped him in false dowry harassment cases and separated him from his child. His suicide came to light on the 9th April 2009 after his landlord grew suspicious.

In a bone-chilling, 8 minute video that he recorded of himself on his mobile, minutes before he committed suicide, Syed Makhdoom expressed the pain that he underwent in an insensitive society and before an insensitive judiciary that trivialized his pain, never understood a father’s feelings and did not grant him visitation to his child which is the natural and biological right of both the child and the father.

Syed Makhdoom’s case is not a one off case. Every year 57,000 married men are committing suicides, unable to bear the torture meted out on them by their wives and in-laws. In the year 2007, 57593 married men committed suicide. Similar figures for the years 2006 and 2005 are 55452 and 52000 respectively as per National Crime Records Bureau. Since 1996 suicide rates have shot up by 40%. Every year the suicide rate is going up by 4% whereas population grows at the rate of 1%. 4 times more men are committing suicides than they are born. Compared to women, the suicide of married men is 1.86 times and grows at 6 times the rate of growth of married women’s suicides.

SIFF and its allied NGOs have been creating awareness about this hidden problem since the past 4 years and has been demanding a Men’s Welfare Ministry but the demands have fallen on deaf ears of the Congress led UPA Government. Hence this election, SIFF appeals to the people, “Vote for any party, but not for Congress”.

Today, April 16, 2009 SIFF and CRISP members are gathering at Gandhi Statue at 7: 00 PM in a “Candle Light March” to pay tribute to the departed soul of Mr. Syed Makhdoom. Additionally we wish to convey this message to the society that “Killing men is not a social service” and men are committing suicides in larger numbers with increasing rate every year, merely for the reason that they are not given proper communication channels to express their problems and an environment where in their problems can get addressed. Hence it is a choice left to the society; it can continue to ignore men and their problems and create a fatherless society or take note of the issue and take responsibility for it as well.

Today in this Candle March, in addition to paying homage to the departed soul of Mr. Syed Makhdoom, SIFF, CRISP and its allied NGOs makes the following demands from the Government of India:

Form a National Commission for Men and a Men’s Welfare Ministry to look into the issues that men are facing
.
Owing to skyrocketing suicides due to family distress and domestic disputes, a national debate needs to be called for. The debate needs to address the issues the current family system faces.

Grant interim visitation/custody orders to non-custodian parents within the first month.

Clear the huge backlog of pending matrimonial cases and appoint evening courts and more judges for the same.

Eliminate all gender biased laws and replace them with Gender neutral laws by replacing the words “Husband” and “Wife” with “Spouse” and “Man” and “Woman” with “Person”.

Eliminate all redundant legal provisions of applying for maintenance by the wife.

Amend the Domestic Violence Act which currently does not cater to female to female violence, female to male violence and male to male violence.

“It is sad how women misuse the law, especially in the case of Adnan. He is going through a divorce and can do whatever he wants with his life. The more she troubles Adnan, the more we will come out in support of him.”
Adnan’s wife and Pooja Bedi come to blows
15 Apr 2009, 0432 hrs IST, Bharati Dubey , TNN

MUMBAI: Singer-music director Adnan Sami’s wife Sabah has accused him and actress Pooja Bedi of allegedly assaulting her at her residence. Pooja said she was shocked by the allegation. “I did not attack or push her. In fact, there are scratches on both my hands from trying to save my mobile phone that Sabah was out to grab.”

About her presence at the Sami house on Monday, the actor clarified, “Our families are very close. In fact, we are Adnan’s support system here in Mumbai. Ever since his mother left for Islamabad for her father’s burial, Adnan has been tending to his father, a pancreatic cancer patient, for over 50 hours. Obviously he was exhausted. I offered to come over while he caught up on his sleep.”

Pooja says she was sitting on the sofa in the hall and reading a book when Sabah barged into the house with a friend and began filming her.

“She screamed and asked me to get out of her house, while I told her to keep her voice down since both Adnan and his father were asleep.” All through the melee, Sabah and her friend continued to film Pooja on their mobile phones.

“She then reached out to grab my phone,” said Pooja. “When I tried to protect it, she lunged at me and began abusing and assaulting me.”

Some time later, seven cops landed up at the house. Pooja told them that all the evidence they needed was in the two mobile phones used to film her. “I hope they are confiscated,” she said.

Senior police inspector Kiran Sonone of the Oshiwara police station confirmed that Sabah had filed an NC complaint, “stating that Adnan had abused her verbally when she inquired about Pooja Bedi’s presence in the house”.

“I have never seen such a hysterical woman and an out-and-out liar,” said Pooja. “It is sad how women misuse the law, especially in the case of Adnan. He is going through a divorce and can do whatever he wants with his life. The more she troubles Adnan, the more we will come out in support of him.”

Adnan Sami and his wife have been having problems for some time. Sabah had filed a case in January for harassment and assault. In February, she filed a complaint under the Domestic Violence Act before the Andheri court. She also pleaded that Sami and his father be removed from their 6,000 sq ft home.

People losing faith: apex court

J. Venkatesan
Judges express concern over a case pending for 50 years
New Delhi: Expressing serious concern over long delay in disposal of cases, the Supreme Court has asked authorities to ensure speedy disposal if the people’s faith in the judiciary is to remain.

“People in India are simply disgusted with this state of affairs and are fast losing faith in the judiciary because of the inordinate delay in disposal of cases,” said a Bench consisting of Justices A.K. Mathur and Markandey Katju while deciding a suit relating to a land dispute pending for 50 years at various stages in different courts.

“Before parting with this case we would like to express our anguish at the delay in disposal of cases in our law courts. The present case is a typical illustration. A suit filed in 1957 has rolled on for half a century. It reminds one of the cases, Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce in Charles Dickens’ novel ‘Bleak House,’ which had rolled on for decades, consuming litigants and lawyers like.”

Quoting a passage from this novel, the Bench said: “Jarndyce and Jarndyce drones on. This scarecrow of a suit has, in course of time, become so complicated, that no man alive knows what it means.

The parties to it understand it least;

innumerable children have been born into the cause;

innumerable young people have married into it;

innumerable old people have died out of it.

Scores of persons have deliriously found themselves made parties in Jarndyce and Jarndyce, without knowing how or why;

whole families have inherited legendry hatreds with the suit.”

Was this not descriptive of the situation prevailing in India today?

The Bench was disposing of a civil appeal filed by Rajindera Singh (dead) through his legal representatives against an Allahabad High Court judgment. Initially Prem Mai and others filed the suit in 1957 and it was decreed in 1963. Then the matter went for first appeal, second appeal and finally the execution appeal was disposed of by the High Court in September 1999. The present civil appeal is directed against this order.

“Insofar as the present proceedings are concerned, we set aside the impugned judgment and order of the High Court and allow this appeal,” the Bench said.

Apex court grants bail to slipper-throwing woman, colleagues
New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday granted bail to four women sentenced to three months in jail after one of them hurled a slipper at an apex court judge.

A bench of Justices B.N. Aggarwal, G.S. Singhvi and R.M. Lodha fixed April 14 for hearing to decide whether the four women could be convicted for contempt to court for flinging the slipper.

The women, Leila David, Annette Kottian, Pavitra Murli and Savita Parekh along with their male colleague Kishore Parekh from Mumbai-based Boss School of Music were Friday sentenced to three months’ imprisonment after one of them threw a slipper at at Justice Arijit Pasayat of the apex court.

Following the incident, Justice Pasayat proceeded to convict the five people for showing disrespect to the court. But another judge on the bench, Justice Ashok Kumar Ganguly had a difference of opinion with Justice Pasayat on the question of whether the alleged attackers could be convicted outright and punished.

Owing to the difference of opinion between the two judges of the bench on Friday, the matter has now been referred to another bench.

Late Friday, Justice Pasayat acquitted Kishore Parekh of the charge of showing disrespect to the court. (IANS)

=============================================================================

Time is not far away when bombs will replace Shoes. The Target of SHOEcide are totally insensitive to the issues which prompted people to SHOEcide!!

Most politicians and Judges surely believe that the shoe-throwing incident was good in fact better than the old weapons ie rotten fruits and eggs.

Indian Husnabans if thrown by wife understand it is a priliminary sign of 498a and start reading Survivor’s Guide

Politician take them as compliment and Free media publicity

Judges use the opputunity to test their power of Contempt Punishment.

When shoes were hurled at Bush the Jouno was awarded millions of dollars,

When shoes were hurled at P Chidambaram Two politicians lost their LS Ticket.

When slippers were thrown at a Pondy judge two policemen got suspension orders!

But when few women threw Slippers at the SC Judge they Got immediate bail!!
