Women face many issues and problems in society and this cannot be denied by any sensible and sensitive person, leaving aside foolish kind of chauvinists or extremely biased people.The situation of women is worse in developing countries vis-à-vis the developed nations.
But there is another
aspect that needs to be given attention. It is the men’s problems.
It is true that men related problems are much lesser as compared to
that of women but in the changing social, cultural scenario, these
problems are acquiring further heights and seriousness. While some 50
years ago, possibly no one would have thought that a man would face
any problem for being a male, today there are ample amount of men who
have been duped, tortured, harassed and exploited by clever, cunning,
dangerous, power-hungry women.
These instances include
false dowry cases, false torture and harassment cases and at times
even false sexual assault cases. In addition, women are also seen
exploiting their physical, economic, social positions to exploit and
even ruin men emotionally, physically and mentally.
It is true that now
instances of men being harassed, exploited and cheated by women in
many ways, at times going to the extent of ruining them, is not a
matter related only with whimsical and imaginary thinking but is
actually taking place around us, as can be verified from the various
newspaper reports that come in this regard.
In such circumstances, it
seems logical and necessary that just in the manner that women
commissions have been formed to cater to the special and specific
needs of women, men’s commission shall also be formed specially for
men to provide them justice in all such cases where the men have been
exploited and harassed by exploitative women solely for being men.
These are just some
initial thoughts on this subject, which could be correct and could
also be incorrect. They might also need many amendments. Hence, an
IPS officer-cum-social activist, Amitabh Thakur have requested all to
provide independent opinions on this issue, so that he can come to
some definite conclusion and might even decide to further pursue the
matter to the best of his ability.
