“The respondent has been working in a hotel for the last few months. Prior to this, he worked as a domestic helper with a family where he faced sexual harassment from the employer’s daughters”
“She stays with her maternal grandparents. There her aunt treats them very badly”
“After school she works in the house. She packs tamarinds for about 7-8 hours daily and whatever she earns her aunt takes it because their financial status is not sound”.
“The respondent lives in the station with his brothers and sisters…one day he became victim of sodomism..”
“She told me that the staff in the observation home punishes girls for misbehaving. The punishment that they get is sit-up 300-500 times and they beat them with scale”.
“After her mother died her father married that lady. That lady used to beat her a lot and make her do all the household work and beat her with anything that came in her hand. She has even got stitches in her hand because her stepmother had hurt her”
These are the comments made by the researchers of “Study on Child Abuse in India 2007” conducted by the Ministry of Women and Child Ministry, India.
The comments made above shows how Indian children suffer humiliation and abuse silently in the hands of their own family members and near relatives. Whereas any kind of violence needs to be shunned and children need to be protected for a better future of the nation unfortunately in India this seems to be a distant dream. Especially when the child welfare in the country is looked into by a ministry that also looks after women welfare. The comments above show that it is the women in the families that are most violent and commit most of the abuses to our children. These two graphs from the same report will make the situation clear –
Persons doing emotional abuse of children
Persons doing physical abuse of children
The campaigners of #PowerOf49 or #JaagoRe will never tell you that it is the women who are the abusers of our children in most cases. In fact, in one of the recent panel discussion on Domestic Violence, the #Jaagore campaigners showed to the nation that it is the father or other male members of the house who are most abusive (Read – The great liars of #JaagoRe #PowerOf49 campaign).
What they have not shown is that number of boys suffer humiliation / sexual assault/abuse in the hands of other female members of the house. Let’s look at these two tables from the same report –
This report shows us that an equal number of boys and girls living as street children are abused but we never get to hear about boys being abused by any of the feminists.
This table shows that boys undergo more sexual violence contrary to the popular belief.
But the cry of these helpless boys (and also the girls) goes unheard in the current madness of feminism in India. This is simply because these little children DO NOT form a vote bank for the political parties but their mothers do. And hence the ministry that is supposed to take care of our children (the WCD ministry) and save them from the abuse of their mothers, forgets all its responsibility and continues to pamper the abusive mothers or women.
Feminists and campaigners of #PowerOf49 or #JaagoRe are also not different. A campaign created by a business brand Tata Tea under the careful wrap of Corporate Social Responsibility and sponsored by other business houses and media channels like CNN-IBN is creating even more cruelty to these helpless boys by promoting the false scenario under #PowerOf49.
In this discussion on CNN-IBN, the following women panelists have shown their extreme cruelty to these boys by completely ignoring their causes. Rather they have painted a completely opposite picture in the minds of their viewers. They have shown a girl being raped by her father for years and then the beast turning to his younger daughter when she filed a police complaint. According to the anchor of the show, the family withdrew the police complaint after CNN-IBN took up the case. The narration of this incidence by the #PowerOf49 campaigners was to show how cruel Indian men are to their own daughters and all including MP Shabana Azmi started talking about taking out morchas (protest rallies) to the houses of the men who abuse women in their house. The panelists have painted a completely false picture to divert our attention from the real culprits. Or in other words, they have supported violence by the women.
The incident of rape as reported by the channel can’t be believed to be true as it was the channel’s responsibility to see that the culprit is punished especially when any court in India can take suo-moto action in matters such as these and there is no dearth of NGOs or feminists organizations to fight such cases. Also, there exists Mahila Thanas, State Women Commission and a Ministry for women and at least 48 different laws empowering them. With the presence of so strong redressal mechanism if a male criminal goes unpunished after a media house like CNN-IBN making it public, that only shows that the story is fake and was created only to increase TRP of the channel.
Unfortunately, children and especially the boys in India do not have anyone to hear them out. The WCD ministry is very busy empowering their abusive mothers because they are the vote bank. The mothers like Rashmi Anand, Flavia Agnes, and Shabana Azmi completely ignores the need of these boys and do not hesitate to paint a biased picture in everyone’s mind.
We can only request the campaigners of #PowerOf49 that we have so far seen our mothers like this –

Because we want to love our mothers.
