Refusal of permission

Subject: Refusal of permission to FATHERS to hold Democratic Protest & Boycott of Family Courts on 18th June 2010 by High Court of Karnataka

All India Men’s Welfare Association (AIMWA) is an organization formed to protect the Constitutional and Human Rights of men and boys. We fight against gender discrimination, legal terrorism and every other form of abuse suffered by men and boys.

AIMWA has organized a Nationwide Boycott of the Family Courts on 18 June 2010 – the Friday before Fathers’ Day – as a sign of protest against the Family Court system which blatantly discriminates against fathers, heartlessly separates them from and prevents their access to their own biological children with following demands.

  • Special fast-track courts should be set up at the earliest to deal with custody issues.
  • Exclusive, fully functioning Divisional Bench should be set up in all High Courts and Supreme Court to hear appeals in matters of child custody.
  • When a person or couple approaches court for divorce, counseling of the parents by professional counselors should be given first priority.
  • Except in extreme cases of violence or unhealthy behavior by either partner, children should be given equal and meaningful access to both parents and grandparents on both sides.
  • Both parents should be given financial responsibility of the child proportionate to their earnings and not based on demands made by either partner.
  • If a partner prevents a child from having equal and meaningful contact with the other partner, they should be counseled first to understand the importance of equal parenting and the best interest of a child.
  • If either partner repeatedly disobeys orders of equal access and meaningful contact with children, then the children should be placed in the full custody of the partner who will allow equal access to the other parent.


AIMWA has requested the Hon’ble Chief Justice of the High Court of Karnataka to permit fathers to peacefully Boycott the Family Courts in Bangalore on 18th June 2010 and to present a memorandum to the Hon’ble Principal Judge in this regard.

AIMWA has been denied permission by High court of Karnataka to hold democratic protest and boycott of Family Courts on 18th June 2010.

AIMWA strongly condemns the denial of our right to peaceful protest against the injustice caused to fathers and  children by the Family Court System. Even as Advocates indulge in lawlessness and protest without any permission from authorities and get away scot-free, fathers separated from their children are denied permission from holding a democratic protest and boycott of family courts. 

AIMWA is compelled to ask as to what danger and threat the Hon’ble High Court apprehends if fathers were allowed to protest in a peaceful way. We fail to understand why fathers and their supporters have been denied the permission to present a petition to the Hon’ble Principal Judge of the Family Court, Bangalore. 

We await the response from the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka.
