Additional Solicitor General Indira Jaising said she and several women in the country were not only opposed to the expression “keep” but also to the use of phrase “one night stand’ by the Bench in the judgement. “The words are derogatory,” she said
Alimony/Maintenance encourages women to incapacitate themselves. Alimony also increases an already large portion of a physically fit and yet morally handicapped population of women. This contradiction leads to mental imbalance and conflicting behavior among women. For example filing criminal cases against husband and yet asks for Restitution of Conjugal Rights(sic).
Alimony & Maintenance reverse the effects of empowerment, in the sense that they feel constantly dependent on the husband’s male capacity to earn. What greater sense of empowerment is there for a woman who would reject Maintenance and start earning her own living and spending her own hard earned money!! The best assets a woman can have: self-respect, self-confidence, education and ability to sustain her life on her own. Also, an equal share in parental property adds to her financial security.
Alimony/ Maintenance laws are forcing women to create fictional stories of domestic violence & dowry harassment, consequently women start believing their own fiction and hence ignites a chain reaction of sociopathic and psychopathic behavior in them.
Alimony/Maintenance encourages women to commit perjury in court. Even though perjury is a serious crime, since Alimony/Maintenance are the only laws of financial gain which do not ask for proof of investment, it forces the courts to take a lenient view against perjury and slowly starts creating a situation of contempt against itself. This has a serious potential to lead to mental breakdown of judicial officers who are also mere mortals having their own livelihood issues and personal pressures.
An Alimony/Maintenance based economy fosters a generation of children who are bound to be socially and mentally imbalanced misfits. These children are already growing up with an attitude that extortion and perjury is a valid tool of life sustenance. Moral values of the next generation will touch the bottom of the begging bowl. Out of a misguided sense of entitlement; children of this dysfunctional generation will end up begging and looting their own parents , peers, spouses and their own children thereby ending the human race in a feeding frenzy of cannibalism.
The concept of Alimony/Maintenance is in contradiction to laws against beggary and vagrancy.
Because of laws for Alimony/Maintenance women have lowered their image of themselves and promoted the idea that they are the weaker sex. This issue has gone to such an extent that in India, these women loathe the idea that their children might one day become like themselves. Therefore, Indian women are killing their own babies/foetuses if they even suspect that it might be a female child. Female infanticide/foeticide is a direct result of Alimony/Maintenance.
Our idea is to Launch a Womens’ Self-Respect Day. On this day the world will honour and propagate the ideal of equality where women realize that they no longer need support from men either morally, socially or financially. On this day the world will honor women like President Pratibha Patil, Sushma Swaraj, Meira Kumar, Indira Jaising, Indira Nooyi etc., who have made it on their own to become leaders of a nation. On this day, women will give a token amount of money to their husband, father, brother etc., as a mark of independence. On this day, self-respecting, right-thinking, hardworking women will reiterate their disgust and express their loathing of female subjugating and sexually derogatory laws like Alimony & Maintenance.

Save Indian Family – Hyderabad is supporting Dhashrat Devda’s Dharna and Hunger Strike in demand to remove anti-male biased laws like IPC 498A, and to gender-neutralize other misandrist laws like DV Act, Maintenance Laws etc., Dashrat Devda has started his unger strike at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on 15th May.
Meanwhile, more than 57000 married men are committing suicide each year (Source: National Crime Records Bureau, Min. of Home Affairs) unable to cope with misandrist(hatred of males) laws like IPC 498A, DV Act, Maintenance Laws and the anti-male mindset of society and government, in particular.
These laws have already started a mass extermination of married men and are causing untold suffering and senseless prosecution of young and middle aged men in general. As it is, there is no social safety net or social measures from the side of the government towards the single largest contributors (men) of tax revenues to society. Not even a single rupee has been spent so far towards the welfare of men. Even animals have a share of government protection and welfare programs.
It is an open secret that laws like IPC 498A and DV Act and Maintenance are all being used as tools of extortion to financially enslave men of productive age and law abiding mindset. Being free men in a free country, we cannot let this continue.
We demand the following:
· Repeal IPC 498A
· Close down Crimes Against Women Cell
· Constitute National Commission for Men
· Mediation in marital disputes should not be handled by Police
· Simplify and ease out Divorce procedures
· No maintenance to women. Women assert equal rights have equal opportunity to earn a living.
· Stop judicial bias against men.
· Amend DV Act of 2005 to be gender neutral.
· Penalty for misusers of IPC 498A till now
· Compensate victims of IPC 498A misuse
Public is requested to speak out in support of men. Thousands of families and children and elderly parents are being affected by these laws. If left to continue, these laws will destroy the very fabric of society.
All our lives, we were thinking of ourselves, our career, our struggles, our loans, our houses, our spouse, our children, their education, our entertainment and our wellbeing. And to facilitate all this we expected the government to provide infrastructure, ensure peace and harmony, ensure supply of essential goods, protect ‘us’ from outsiders. And for all this, all we had to do was cast our vote once in 5 years and pay our taxes and obey the law and participate in corrective measures.
Whenever we face atrocious laws like 498A, DV Act etc., we dissociate from the government. We say the government is blind, the police are high-handed, the judiciary is insensitive, and all of the above are plain corrupt and absolutely rotten.
So now the question is who is the government. The government is our own creation. We ‘are’ the government. We the people, who pay taxes, cast our votes…. As soon as we hit a hurdle, ‘we’ becomes ‘them’ and ‘us’. Negativity takes over. We see everything in a colour of anger and hurt and cynicism. Who is the enemy? The enemy is within. ‘We’ made the government, we feed the government, it is our servant, it is ‘we’.
The system of correction involves the loop of analysis and also the corrective action. To ‘ensure’ both, real work is needed and it is only to be done by ‘us’.
The government is like a pet animal. It will obey only when commanded and that too only after it is trained. This takes effort from the master, the people and that is us. If the animal bites the master, it is not only the fault of the animal, it is also the fault of the master who has failed to control the animal, who has failed to train the animal properly.
We the people, have been bitten again and again, because we have failed to take proper corrective action. Instead of simply blaming the monster that ‘we’ have created, ‘we’ have to take corrective action. The emphasis is on the word ‘ACTION’.
So the question is plainly put. Will you ACT or will you just complain to the winds?
I am 498A. I was born to rape men and their families. I belong to a gang of rapists and looters. My sister is the famous DVA. She is the wolf in sheep’s clothing, but I am the wolf in a lion’s clothing. I am a tool of Sexual Harassment and criminal extortion. Usually I am the first to attack unsuspecting married men. I am uniquely gifted in my ability to create terror. Many men prefer to commit suicide after I point my finger at them. Some of them quickly surrender to me and pay me a handsome ransom. Many married women and their parents are inspired by me and very frequently use me to loot their husbands and make quick, huge and tax free money. I am patronized by a lot of twisted bitches and greedy bastards in high places. I am an abomination-in-law. I hate my own existence but I have a strong need to destroy all traces of decency and reason. I was created by deception and twisted statistics motivated by the evil of gender bias. I am fueled by hate and greed. The irony is that I was conceived under the ruse of battling greed and the bogey of gender equality.
I am the real tool of Sexual Harassment; since I discriminate against men only because they are men. I deserve to be punished first under the proposed laws of sexual harassment. I am the institutionalized tool of extortion. I deserve to be punished by the criminal laws against extortion. I deserve to be punished for conspiracy to commit crimes against humanity for my intention to destroy half of it. I deserve to be punished for openly declaring war against the Constitution of the nation I have pledged my allegiance to.
I am boiling with pure hatred against the resilience of some men and women who refuse to give in to my extortion and refuse to give up their fight against me. I have been defeated morally & legally 98% of the time by these people; the very reason for my existence has been brought under the question of justice, but since my creators and my supporters don’t have any shame or faith in the framework of their own laws, I carry on my dark business and my indulge in my sick pleasures. I sense the sword of reason on my neck and I may be beheaded any time, but, till the time comes, I keep testing humanity’s faith in justice.
I am 498A and I was born to rape men and their families…
And if a husband-wife relationship is about having a witness to our lives, then children and their children are the evidences. And we can trace this evidence from the start of the human life till ourselves..you and me.
It will not.
There already exists laws to combat crime and human greed. By categorising crime specific to family situations is an attempt to break down the family structures itself and not the crime.
Let me give you an example. We all have heard of the cases of disproportionate assets by judges and also about corrupt judges. Why is there no special law called the Corrupt Judges Act? The reasons are obvious. They will say that there is already a Prevention of Corruption Act. Dowry harassment is the same as extortion. Then why do we have a Dowry Act when there is already a law against extortion? Why have a domenstic violence act when there is already a law against violence? It is only to feed the egos of a few maniacs in power. These are the people who cannot see a family structure to which they do not themselves belong.
It is a fact that every bond is subject to wear, tear and breakage and it could be for any reason. In a situation where the differences are irreconciliable, the husband or the wife should be allowed to walk away cleanly. But our legal system has biased itself to such an extent that it gives two different verdicts to husbands and wives given the same set of petitioning circumstances. If a man asks for divorce he is automatically labelled irresponsible and if a woman asks she is said to be a victim of circumstances.
It is an irony that the very system of laws like IPC 498A, DV Act & Maintenance Laws which have been created as the champion against the Indian husband’s mythical greed and imaginatively systemized violent nature are tools of extortion themselves. A tool of extortion to combat extortion. This is the result of State interference into family life.
If this is not stopped today, very soon, we will witness the destruction of the fabric of family life and the very identity of India will be on the verge of extinction.
I demand the following:
Scrap IPC 498A since appeals to amend the section were ignored.
Scrap DV Act since appeals to amend the Act were ignored.
Progressively ensure that laws do not infringe and intrude into family issues.
Ensure that Government is made to pay damages/compensation to families who had to suffer the trauma inflicted by the creation and execution of these family specific biased laws.

It has come to my notice through a news report that there is a vacancy for the position of Chairman for the National Human Rights Commission. I wish to submit my candidature for the post. The following are my qualifications. I am a natural born citizen of India. I am a qualified mechanical engineer. I had been falsely implicated in a dowry harassment case in 2004. I have defended myself honourably and was acquitted in 2009. In the course of the trial, I have faced the following.
Judicial Remand for two days in Central Prison, Hyderabad.
This shows that I have experienced how easy it is for a common man to be incarcerated in prison without any prima facie evidence. Also, I have a reasonably good experience and awareness of the conditions of our prisons and prison systems. Thereafter, I have seen and experienced the agony of a prolonged trial and I am well aware of the deficiencies in our legal systems. Also, after attending many courts concerned with family issues, I have come across many families suffering similar woes and I can empathize with the common man. I have also interacted with many judges, lawyers & police personnel and have understood that power, prejudice and badly designed systems can affect the judgement of anyone in the system. I understand that there is a need to constantly revise the laws to ensure that they are judicious and effective. This has given me the understanding of the complex power equations that come in play within the system. I believe that every person has the right to live in dignity. I believe that even the biggest of governments may be wrong in making policies from time to time. I believe that if the time comes, we must re-evaluate and re-vamp the system dispassionately. I am neither intimidated by power, nor believe that it is absolute. These form the cornerstone of my being.
With this I support my candidature for the position in question. Please feel free to contact me for any additional clarifications.
- The reality is that most Indian parents push their reluctant daughters into marriages.
- The reality is that most women get married for the love of jewellery and riches.
- The reality is that it takes a promise of gold for most women to agree to get married.
- The reality is that an average woman in India agrees to get married because her parents promises her jewellery and property rights. THIS is the real ‘Dowry’.
- The reality is that most Indian women get married for all the wrong reasons.
- The rest is the reality of false criminal cases against husbands and their families.
- The rest is legally aided butchery of men.
- The rest is legally aided torment of fatherless children.
- And the concentration camps of Indian Family Courts where the poisonous fumes of bias and oppression kills all voices of reason, conscience and the last whimpers of justice.
- And all this for these women’s lust for gold.
