    Men of the world, unite

    From DNA India:

    Men of the world, unite

    The "dominant sex"-- male -- is not so dominant after all.
    Forming solidarity on the eve of International Men's Day (IMD)
    on Thursday, pro-men activists in Bangalore are set to launch
    an All India Men's Welfare Association and demand creation of
    a Men's Welfare Ministry, among other things.

    The Association has drafted a charter that asks for a holiday on
    IMD, paternity leave, and a study on the treatment men get in
    different spheres of socio-economic life. The Association has
    asked all male employees in Bangalore to take mass leave on
    Thursday and "declare their independence and celebrate their
    freedom".

    "Man is depicted as a fiend who is out to exploit women. It's reflected in the societal attitude, right from the mother's lap and lasts till the grave," bemoans Virag Dhulia, a researcher for the Save Indian Family Foundation that was formed a few years ago to provide legal succour to men fighting marital cases.

    Virag is rich in details and ladles out examples where men are silent sufferers: "First, discrimination comes in the form of false image of dominance: man should not cry, he should shoulder responsibility for the welfare of women, he must do all risky tasks. Giving them false values are the scriptures that put man at a psychological disadvantage. In society, right from the elementary schools to the judiciary, he is suspect till he proves himself otherwise."

    "The government even has an Animal Welfare Board but the sex that gives 82 per cent tax revenue and does all the unpleasant and hazardous jobs, the fruit of which is mainly enjoyed by women, have no place in India's scheme of things," regrets the new body's website aimwa.info launched on Monday. "Men," it exhorts, "let's unite and fight societal attitude, not women."

    "No, we are not against women. We're for gender parity," clarifies Vivek Deveshwar, another activist in the forefront. "Men face humiliation in every step. For instance, government gives great importance to breast cancer and blood cancer in women, but hardly anything on prostrate cancer, a disease men are prone to. In advertisements and cartoons, a male is portrayed as stupid, while women are witty and smart."

    Mithun Kumar, one of the leaders, told DNA, "In every step, a man suffers ignominy. To take the latest example, look at how the media treated the case of a woman who barged into the marriage hall. The man had no voice, nobody believed him or asked for his view." Kumar says even the World Economic Forum keeps harping on the dwindling population of girls without any valid study.

    "It's unfortunately true that men are becoming victims of 'legal terrorism' unleashed through laws like Indian Penal Code Section 498A, Protection of Women Against Domestic Violence Act, adultery laws and many other laws, all loaded against men," says veteran lawyer of many fights, MG Kumar.

    Should this be priority news?

    Re: Men of the world, unite

    From what I have seen on this forum and from many other sources India is rapidly becoming a focal point for men's rights. Feminism has descended upon that country vigor and now their actions are backfiring. Indians are smart and there are a hell of a lot of them. The recognition of the Men's Rights Movement as a worldwide force will almost definitely come to fruition when the voices of Indian men become too loud to ignore.
    Do not ever suppose that a small group of people can never change the world. INDEED it is the only thing that ever has.

    Yes and Indians are very adept at the English language so the related news spreads a lot faster.

    We're talking to each other, and we talk to our friends and they talk to their friends.

    It's called grass roots organizing and is very very effective and hard to stop.

    Takes time though.

    I just created a profile on this site, the same site that the guy in the article is associated with. I also said hi in the men's rights forum. I suggest that a few other people from this site do the same. Networking is always good!
