Suicide #s ‘..doubled or tripled in women and of these most of them are due to treatment by their husbands and their families..’

When asked about 67,000 male suicides,  Hon Mantri Smt Maneka Gandhi Ji, had the following to say ...There are so many reasons but depressions due to economic reasons is primary in male suicide. This number is doubled or tripled in women – and of these most of them are due to treatment by their husbands and their families . This number is doubled or tripled in women – and of these most of them are due to treatment by their husbands and their families.  And how many of them are ” suicides” is a moot point …” .

She went on to add ” I suggest you do not distort facts to achieve your point. It is sad enough even when one man or woman commits suicide. …”

So, according to the Hon Mantri ji, women commit double or triple the # of suicides as males or probably she meant that the # of suicides has doubled or tripled recently and the main reason for such female suicides is due to (ill ? ) treatment by their husbands and their families.

…..hmm the men claim and married male suicides are 2 times that of females; The Hon Mantri ji says female suicides are 3 times males

I’m all confused about facts ..facts …facts… !!!

One thought on “Suicide #s ‘..doubled or tripled in women and of these most of them are due to treatment by their husbands and their families..’

  1. Hari Om Jaimini

    Honorable Minister is so wise and intelligent and she is commenting so much confidence like when any suicide (by men or women) happens she is informed about the reason and she updates it in her file that is why she replied that MEN SUICIDE is for so many reasons (like economy etc) but she failed to even comment that due to harassment from WIFE and IN Laws men are ending their life today. Such a stupid comment from a lady heading such a sensitive post of Women and Child Development Ministry is very much expected and gives clear indication of the state of MALE (husbands) in India. I pray to GOD for that day when her son, brother or father or any other male relative is trapped in a false Dowry Harassment, Rape, molestation or Domestic violence and then she will feel the pain.
