The women and Children ministry … Is it ANTI MALE ?

Recently the Hon Minister Smt. Maneka Gandhi ji held her first Facebook Q & A. She answered many questions from Indians eager to interact with her. However we were shocked to see the Honourable minister consider many important issues as either NOT within her ministry (while they were) or as Jokes (while they weren’t) and take very little note of the sufferings of 1000s of boys, mothers and sisters

Here are a few examples of what she said, all from her facebook Q & A, which is open to the public (at least as at the time of this writing)

We are giving the questions and answers and also screen shots of what she said

While questioned what her ministry does for young male children (boys) dropping out of schools, she says that is “NOT under me”… ! Isn’t she the Women and Children minister ? aren’t male children considered children or ? Why is this issue NOT under her ? While “bEti padaO” is being parroted all over, what about the bEtA ?

When asked a simple question about male vs female privileges, she goes on about how males do NOT take care of women and ONLY the government has to !! She makes NO mention of the Rampant misuse of dowry laws, but claims that men and families are regularly killing women for dowry

She claims that men are talking the wife’s kidney and not the son’s when they need a kidney for transplant ! Doesn’t the Hon Minister know that many matches including blood, genetic matching and age etc are to be considered while transplanting kidneys ? !! Does she advocate taking away the kidney of some 10 year old kid because a 50 year old father needs it ? will it match and fit a grown up man ?

When asked about a MEN’s ministry or Ministry for all humans without discrimination, she calls that a joke !! Question “….Do you think there should be a ministry for men who works for the welfare of development of men? or i would like not to create biasedness in society, the ministry should be named to Ministry for HUMANS…” she just quips “……Another joke ??….”

When asked about women being independent, women being self reliant and using their education, vis a vis just claiming maintenance , she claims even educated women should get maintenance !!

of course women should get maintenance educated or NOT !! - with boxes

When asked about the legal rights of males and females in marriage, she claims that the males have MORE rights in the marriage !! We do NOT know which act or which law the honorable minister is referring to !  In India, either the matrimonial legislation is geneder neutral or they favour the women !! We haven’t come about any laws that are specifically favouring the males !! Either the Hon minister is unaware of huge problems faced by men or she does NOT care !!

Male has more rights to the marriage - with box

The list is too long ! We are really pained by what the Hon minister has said

At one point the Hon Minister was asked the misuse of 498a, she conveniently states that 498a was enacted much before she came to power ! Of course we know 498a was enacted much before she came to power and we know that 498a is rampantly misused. But the question is what is the Hon Minister doing to correct / remedy the situation. Is this government just a copy of the earlier government ? don’t you want to right the wrongs ?

Many Honourable courts, many Jurists including the Ex CJI have come out in the open saying sec 498a IPC and similar laws are heavily misused. The government itself has tried to sensitize the lower level funtionaries of this menace … 80000 men commit suicide every year in India and that’s approx 2 times the number of females. Indian Men within the 19 to 30 age group have the highest suicide rates in the world ! The Tihar jail has a complete section where elderly women and sister in laws are arrested and jailed !! the Hon Supreme court has said that up to 1 Lakh women are arrested under 498a !!

We are shocked that in spite of all this the Hon minister has taken a view that men’s ministry is a joke and the misuse in 498a is just like the misuse elsewhere

There are at least 40 cases in which the Honourable courts including the Supreme court have categorically stated that matrimonial laws, and especially 498a is misused . Many judgements have clearly stated the remedy. We are pained that the Hon minister has NOT considered any of these !

We only hope that Shri Modi Ji who has been championing and working very had to Sab Ki Saath, Sab ka vikas becomes a reality for the hardworking men of India, the soldiers who protect us day in and day out !!

    Most lame argument on amending 498a she gave is that it was enacted before she became minister. So, this means that whatever garbage was there before she came in power – she will not change.

    By the same logic, power ministry shouldn’t have done anything about coal scam. Hmmm…

    So, it seems like she will not do anything because she is clearly biased. So, let’s knock the doors of RSS. When she will be replaced by someone who understands equity and equality better – things will change.

    //when a man needs a kidney he doesn’t take it from his son//
    1. notice she said “son” . And not “daughter”? are Daughters meant only for selfies?
    2. she does not know that a loving , non-498a, Hindu wife will herself volunteer to give her kidney as she would not prefer to live even for a day without her husband.
    3. a wife would not like her son or daughter to give kidney i) out of love for children ii) since as compared to her , children have much more life to live.
    Same is true for husband who would sacrifice his kidney if non-498a wife needs it. That is why , in india, marriage was “sacrament” and sacred.
    Influenced by western culture and disgruntled 498a /divorced women in powerful positions , It seems too much for her to understand it.
    Anyone who has experienced the aroma of loving relationship between a husband and a non 498a wife will understand that.
