The tears are taken as prima facie and the man and his family are pronounced as criminals even before trials and this is where the extortion racket starts. I have witnessed many cases where at the time of granting bail to the husband and the family member's our hon'ble courts have asked them to pay a handsome amount to the wife. If they agree to pay the same, the bail is granted and rejected if he retaliates to the same.
Even when Judiciary knows that these provisions of laws are being grossly misused, even when the apex court has asked the government several times to amend these laws, nothing has been done so far. Men are dying due to these laws, let them die. Families are breaking, let them rip apart. No one cares. When it comes to police, they again are not playing their part honestly as they are expected to do as they are the front liners.
They are duty bound to investigate the cases without being biased, still they are as much biased as the other parts of the system. Investigation is a process, where all the false cases could be tracked, but only if the policemen perform their duties honestly. Sadly, these days policemen are not performing their duties, they are rather turning out to be the so called helpless women's agents. These agents are doing nothing more than pressurizing the man and his family.
Even when the policemen are well aware that the complaint made is false, they treat the man as "Garbage" and "Criminal". The language used at the time of their so-called investigation itself makes their thought process clear that they are not talking to a false case victim but talking to a prospect client who will have to give up on the unethical demands and they eventually will get their cut.
If my dear readers do not agree to the above stated statement, then let me ask this, why in this world would an investigation officer ask a man to pay to her so-called wife and get the case settled out of court? We need to agree on the point that the number of false cases are sky high. Thousands of families and men are facing the heat of these vaguely drafted gender biased laws. This is where the need of NCM (National Commission for Men) and men's welfare ministry arise.
As of today not only high profile men, even the politicians have a fear of false accusation. This indeed is the need of the hour. We need social and judicial reforms. This is high time, if this legal terrorism is not put an end, this will end many relations and institution of marriage and will be disaster to our society.
This is what MRM is fighting for. I am proud that we have some sensible people in our country who are slowly and gradually moving towards changing the psyche of Male Dominated Society and are fighting for men's rights. The most important demand is National Commission for Men and Men's Welfare Ministry.
