We always talk about gender inequility, women impowerment, education and safety of women. No one deny the fact ” India is well known for the increasing crime against women“. There are many laws like Indian Panel Code (IPC-498A,375,509,294,354), created for safety of women which have helped in reducing discrimination and violence against women to a large extent. But do you ever think when a girl or woman wants to file a report in police station why does she face problems ? May be there is a problem in our system. But I think there’s a huge problem in some girls/women.
As I already wrote in my one of ths post Mind Your Own Business that I’m not a feminist. I really believe women are always at advantage as we have supporters, laws and most of all we have strength to make or ruin something . Have you ever seen a reserved seat for men in bus…? No, but we have. From bus to assembly we have reserved seats. I’m not writing this post because I suddenly feel men need to raise their voices for reserved seats… No…. I am writing this post because I felt really bad for those girls or women who were victim and felt the embarrassment when they went to the police station to file a report and in court sessions. And the reason of embarrassment is fake reports. Some women have taken these laws as an advantage situation to file false cases against men. Some women mostly misuse these laws to gain instant recognition (Media Attention), to take revenge and for money. Implication against men go on unnoticed and seriously ruin a man’s career and even in some cases it has also taken away the life of many men. There are many instances in which Indian courts have said that laws meant to protect women are being misused by women. I consider this act as a legel terrorism against man by a woman.
Women, who misuse law, become a hurdle to other women who Are victim in real. Some women are the biggest enemy to the rest suffering women. Because of these women, the real victim face embarrassment, mental pressure and baseless questionaire. And if I talk about men who are accused of these fake reports, they also feel the embarrassment and their families suffer too.
When a women accuses her spouse / immediate relatives of abuse it’s a very strong step she take. Since it’s a non bailable offence, guilty or not, the accused will go to jail until trial. But there are plenty of cases where the women blackmail the spouse/in-laws by threatening to file such case and because of this fake cases real victim faces some annoying questions.
Nowadays, every woman wants economic stability as she doesn’t want to be dependent on any one. If she is working in a company and has a great boss, a gentleman who is coperative but after few months, she may accuse her boss for harassment, definitely everyone will believe on girl and feel like how evil the boss is. I use the word accused. A simple accusation can mar your image in the industry let alone your company (that is if you are still continued to be employed there after such an incident). It goes with the male employees too. This “threat” increase as they climb up to higher positions in their company.
Because of the cases filed by some women the rest feel ashamed and people see them doubtfully. I agree in some cases the actual victim female get justice .But its not acceptable if a female use the inequality , women empowerement and laws as a tool.Remember the rules were created for the safety not to misuse.I feel ashamed for the females who misuse it.
Here i don’t want to highlight any case cause its my opinion in general not for any particular case. As every man can’t be accused , alike all women are not victim.
If we talk about equality than it must be followed in every situation . The rights for man and woman must be equal.The man has the same respect as a woman.
A victim can be anyone a man or a woman.
