Jaagore logo1

After spreading a bunch of lies on domestic violence, literacy among women, female foeticide etc the PowerOf49 campaigners have finally came up with their election manifesto. Let’s see what the manifesto says –

  1. Politicians must lead by example by displaying zero tolerance for perpetrators of domestic abuse and dowry in political parties
  2. Address the under representation of women in the parliament through increased representation in party ticket distribution as well as cabinet
  1. Make gender sensitisation for boys a compulsory part of the school curriculum from Std. V to XII in order to counter eve-teasing
  1. Increase percentage of women police personnel from current 5% to at least 33%
  1. Build a combined ‘front line army’ of government workers, NGOs, local health and sanitation workers with accredited social health activists
  1. Build 1 crore women toilets within a year with privacy and 24/7 access to water
  1. Provide mandatory creches and women-friendly maternity policies that include long-term leave-both rural and urban
  1. Incentivise schooling for girls by providing financial saving schemes and free transportation
  1. Install GPS on all buses, double the number of street lights and provide round-the-clock public transportation for women
  2. Provide complete medical, legal and psychological support to victims of domestic violence by instituting special family counselling centers in government buildings and policy centres

Now for each point mentioned in the manifesto demands our immediate attention –

  1. Politicians must lead by example by displaying zero tolerance for perpetrators of domestic abuse and dowry in political parties

I have already proved in this article that per the current definition of domestic violence almost every Indian husband is subjected to domestic violence by their wives. Also on dowry practices we don’t need to remind the readers that out of total 498a cases filed in India 85% of them are false. If we remove the dowry death (IPC 304B) cases from the list of 498a cases then this stats will stand at around 97-98%. With this level of misuse if the political parties need to honour this demand then they will have to keep more women outside their parties than men.

  1. Address the under representation of women in the parliament through increased representation in party ticket distribution as well as cabinet

Well having more male ministers at the centre have seen extremely pathetic condition of men in this country. The male ministers bring in more anti male laws or support the same in the name of women empowerment and that actually does not help men in the country in any manner. Now it is in the best interest of every countryman need to eliminate feminists (either male or female) who want to destroy the country by bringing in and supporting legal terrorism. So it doesn’t really matter to India whether a woman or a man is at the power. The point that we need to be careful is that we vote out the feminists who want to dominate men and create a state of anarchy in India.

  1. Make gender sensitisation for boys a compulsory part of the school curriculum from Std. V to XII in order to counter eve-teasing

This is purely a feminist agenda that can not be supported at all. This demand assumes that all boys are involved in eve teasing and hence everyone need to be taught gender sensitivity. The similar demand is not made for sensitizing women. This kind of feminist brainwash at the little age will only create a situation of female supremacy and domination of unscrupulous girls over boys. This is very dangerous proposition to begin with. Especially when we see even male adults can not handle such abuse by the women in their adulthood and commit more suicide in family situation than women.

4. Increase percentage of women police personnel from current 5% to at least 33%

Men will not have any problem with this especially when it is the law of the land that no woman can be arrested without the presence of a lady officer. This is especially important when we see in a recent incident in Kolkata a drunk woman misbehaved with a traffic constable on duty and could not be arrested for dearth of women police officers. At least if we have more women in police force that will ensure errant women will be arrested in time and will be punished. Well we hope so.

  1. Build a combined ‘front line army’ of government workers, NGOs, local health and sanitation workers with accredited social health activists

Well if we look at this seemingly harmless and empowering proposal we will find this a very efficient model of improving sanitation and health issues of women. Only problem we have that with existing National Commission, a ministry and so many welfare schemes in place for women addition of one more provision in the name of their health issues will ensure that men’s health issues like prostate cancer, lung cancer and many other issues are completely ignored. Thus this seemingly gender neutral and all empowering proposal deepens gender bias in the society especially when we know women in India already live longer than average men in India. If health is such a big issue then how is this possible? In fact adoption of this kind of biased policies will eventually lead to men not finding proper healthcare solutions at less cost while they continue to pay more taxes to maintain women. This is creation of social misandry in a subtle way.

  1. Build 1 crore women toilets within a year with privacy and 24/7 access to water

This is another area that is harmless and empowering in the sense that many women drop out from the school due to poor sanitation issues and absence of toilets for girl students. Even though we don’t deny the need for setting up such facility for women either in schools, public places, high roads etc for humanitarian grounds, we can’t ignore setting up more toilets for men as well for environmental reasons. Also the toilets available currently need to be kept clean and healthy at all point in time.

  1. Provide mandatory creches and women-friendly maternity policies that include long-term leave-both rural and urban

This is again another good policy initiative especially when we have both parents working. All office buildings may have mandatory crèches to take care of children. This is very much needed in today’s situation of both the couple working, increasing number of nuclear families, lack of proper support systems etc. In terms of women friendly maternity policies India already has three months paid maternity leave and even the best countries in the world today have six months and not more than that. But when we talk about mandatory crèches in offices and different other areas the need for more leave for maternity may be redundant.

8. Incentivise schooling for girls by providing financial saving schemes and free transportation

This is a very much gender biased provision and will ensure that boys drop out of the school in order to send our girls to school when the burden of the family remains on the boys. Already I have shown in my earlier article that how different international studies and reports have proved that the reason for poor literacy among girls is absence of proper toilets in schools. Cost of education is not an issue as the elementary education is free in India. Transportation is a problem for both boys and girls. By giving girls this extra facility simply based on gender will create gender hatred at an early age with boys at young age finding girls getting more unnecessary benefits.

Also the recent UNESCO report clearly shows that literacy among girls are increasing while that within boys is decreasing. By demanding this provision the PowerOf49 have once again showed how they want to make boys’ lives miserable from the early ages by denying education to them when we are talking of education being a right for Indians.

  1. Install GPS on all buses, double the number of street lights and provide round-the-clock public transportation for women

While the first part of the demand is humane in nature and will improve everyone’s security the later part is not acceptable. In fact by demanding round the clock public transportation for women the campaigners have once again proved their male hatred. In India wherever round the clock transportation is available nowhere women are barred from taking the transportation. In fact if this provision is introduced only for women then men will not only be denied transportation as wee hours but their lives will become more dangerous.

Hence this demand is once again a hateful demand towards Indian men, denies men the need to be transported as men will not be allowed to board any of the women specific vehicles. We have already seen that women only buses and trains are turning out to be in big losses as there are not enough commuters even in day time. By having women specific buses at night will only ensure they ply empty while denying male passengers to travel at ease.

  1. Provide complete medical, legal and psychological support to victims of domestic violence by instituting special family counselling centers in government buildings and policy centres

Again this assumes (but not specifically mentions) that the victims are women. This is because this movement is for women and this manifesto is only for women. So this means no matter how much a man is tortured he will have nowhere to go as these centres will only cater to women, deny the same services to men and hence will ensure men and their families undergo more cruelty by the society. Extremely hateful proposal to start with.

Thus the inhuman and hateful nature of PowerOf49 campaign is once again out to everyone. We understand how in a subtle way the campaigners with funds from Tata Tea, CNN IBN and others are promoting gender hatred against men in the society that can make lives of all men miserable in near future.

To curb this it is important to you to stop voting any political party that endorses such policies and even assures to bring these after being elected. It is also important to raise your voice against corporate houses like Tata Group that is promoting this campaign and this hatred. If you don’t act today and before election 2014, it may be very late for you to react afterwards.

Jai Haind!!
