Save Indian Family Foundation accuses Maneka Gandhi of shielding women criminals, demands apology
Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF), an organisation fighting for men's rights, has strongly condemned a statement by Women & Child Development minister, Maneka Gandhi in which she held men responsible for all the violence. SIFF has demanded the minister to tender a public apology for it.

"The role of men in gender sensitization was the most critical since all the violence is male-generated. We have introduced (the concept of) 'Gender Champions' in schools, under which boys who have been respectful and helpful to girls will be rewarded," Maneka Gandhi had said.

SIFF in a press release said that such derogatory statement by a responsible woman minister declares men criminals by default instead of promising protection to them.

SIFF gave examples of some very gruesome acts of women, like Indrani Mukherji who killed her own daughter; the mother in Pune, Rakhi, who killed her son by a cricket bat; Ajay Nigam killed by his wife Amita Nigam in Lucknow.

Save Indian Family Foundation (SIFF) said, "By giving such statements Maneka Gandhi is giving shield to these criminal women. The statement directly means violence by women is acceptable. In spite of the fact that every 8 minutes a married man commits suicide due to torture by women, and male suicide is sky rocketing, she gave this insensitive statement. Maneka Gandhi is a Women & Child Development minister (WCD) but before that she is an elected leader of an electoral constituency. Men and women both voted for her and she promised to work for both of them. But now with this biased approach men will think twice before voting for her."

SIFF said that a few years ago former union minister Renuka Chowdhary during the UPA regime made same mistake as of Maneka Gandhi, when she made a statement, "It's time for men to suffer."

SIFF said that Chowdahry had to pay the price of the misandry she did, she lost terribly in elections and her political career was finished. It looks like Maneka Gandhi did not learn anything from Renuka episode while repeating the same mistake.

Crime and criminals does not have a gender so by saying that all violence is male generated Maneka Gandhi is defiantly protecting the female criminals, said SIFF.

Spokesperson of Save Indian Family Foundation Jyoti Tiwari strongly condemned the statement of Maneka Gandhi and said, "She is actually trying to give license to the morally degraded women to kill men. According to her women have all the rights to kill men, as women do not generate crime. When she says boys being respectful to the girls will be rewarded it means girls who beat boys will be rewarded too as minister just assumed that all boys are violent criminals and girls are saints. This kind of attitude of a minister is shameful and disgusting."

Tiwari added, "I think a person who was involved in the animal welfare should not be considered for a human department. She should apologize publically for such an insensitive statement."

"During election campaign her own son Varun Gandhi in 2009 was accused of spreading communal violence and Varun Gandhi was behind bars for the same. So with this statement of hers, Varun's bail should be cancelled and he should be again arrested for being a violent man who had spread communal hatred way back in 2009," says National Coordinator of SIFF Sujit Deshpande.

"Violence on men is much more but we do not have any ministry who can take care of it. Regarding generation of violence, women have always generated more violence than men. Women enjoy seeing men fighting, killing each other for them. Women generate, create, love violence and then blame men for it. When a woman on position blames men for it, shows that she is coming with a preconceived notion. How can such a woman be expected to work for the welfare of people?" says Rajesh Vakharia, President, SIFF.
