Subject: Indian Husbands charged with biased matrimonial laws, made to deal with family disputes, between husband and wife, such as IPC 498A, CrPC 125, Domestic violence Act, Hindu Marriage Act etc, are treated worst than “Ajmal Amir Kasab”, Pakistani terrorist, who is charged with the deaths of 166 Indians and foreigners, has been pronounced guilty of all charges by a special court in Mumbai.

About Family Harmony Society: “Family Harmony Society” FHSwww.family-harmony.org / www.498a.org.in ] is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) promoting the cause of “family harmony” and “gender equality”. It is registered under “The Karnataka Societies Registration Act, 1960” and is based in Bangalore.

Why only MEN and Husbands?: Let us clarify that we are not against Women. Many people ask FHS activists why this NGO was formed and what is unique about you? “This NGO was formed in 2005 in Bangalore and is having presence in 16 states and in abroad too. We formed this NGO to protect and fight for the rights of the MEN. Everyone is concerned only about the rights of women but the society and Governments has forgotten about MEN’s right” says FHS activists?

“When there is a ministry for even animal (Animal Husbandry Ministry) why not for MEN?” asks FHS activists and demands a ‘MEN’s welfare ministry’.

“In case of matrimonial disputes between husband and wife all the related laws are made heavily in favor of estranged wife, giving no chance to husbands or his parents to defend. Why husbands are treated worst than criminals and terrorist?” asks FHS activists?

Ajmal Amir Kasab was provided with free Government advocate and even though everyone knew he is guilty, enormous amount of resource of Government and Judiciary was wasted for his trial, but in case of matrimonial disputes when an estranged wife file a false complaint under IPC 498A, all the members of the husbands including females members like mother-in-law, sister-in-law and age old grandfather, grandmother are immediately arrested and sent to jail. Even minor children are not spared. What crime we have done? Are we worst than Ajmal Amir Kasab that without proving any charges we are arrested and sent to jail? Why each and every failed marriage is branded as Dowry case? Why each and every wife’s death is converted to dowry death case without an iota of proof and evidenceFHS activists had asked these uncomfortable questions to the Government?

  • Between 1995 to 2008, total of 2481660 males were arrested by police for all cognizable offence and the corresponding figure for male in 2008 was 2713971 which on sequential base is an increase of 9.36%. In 1995, total of 106079 females were arrested by police for all cognizable offence and the corresponding figure for female in 2008 was 168315 which on sequential base is an increase of 58.67%. “So it is clear that Women criminals are on rise but in our country MEN are considered worst than terrorist. Why this discrimination?” Asks FHS activists.
  • An analysis of the data released by National Crime Records Bureau – www.ncrb.nic.in, between 1995 to 2008, shows that the suicide rate of MEN is increasing at an alarming rate compared to Women and most of it is attributed to “family problems”. “So government data itself shows that MEN are overburdened with responsibilities and Women are asking for equal rights but are not ready to share equal responsibilities. Why this third rate treatment to MEN?” asks FHS activists?
