For those who are wondering why there is sudden surge and focus on marital rape cases the story is mostly incomplete without a deep dive into the phenomenon. The focus started after Dec 16 Delhi rape case when Justice Verma commission was forced to prepare a massive report on crime against women in just 30 days time. If you remember, then global media has projected Indian streets unsafe for women and conveniently branded Delhi as the rape capital of India. Indian media was also not far behind. Many social activists complained that a report was ready with PRS Legislative (a feminist group of lawyers) who just wanted to make their demands legitimate by giving it proper authentication. Creating enormous hype around Delhi rape was their agenda to push for their demands. Otherwise why should one rape create a hurried decision on crimes like Sexual Harassment in Workplaces or Marital Rape which had no connection with the Delhi Rape.
The then UN general secretary had also urged Indian govt. to ensure safety of Indian women. Global bodies like UN projected that women were unsafe in India. Many men supported them based on emotion and didn’t see the politics behind shaming India.
But that was not all. Later BBC made a documentary with an alleged rapist Mukesh Singh and named it India’s Daughter. They tried to show a rapist’s mindset as the mindset of India. Indians, especially those men who supported strict punishment to the alleged rapists were shown the mirror by BBC as they claimed the same men had the mindset of that of Mukesh Singh. However, by that time our govt. has changed and India didn’t accept such kind of shaming. UN however, continued to comment on the views of Mukesh Singh confirming activists’ views that there is a deep international interest in shaming India as a nation and creating disturbance.
But , with that attempt to shame India on “2015 International Women’s Day” failing big time, international bodies had no option but to change their gameplan. International media like CNN and BBC started showing that marital rape is legal in India, which is definitely NOT true
In this article below we find India mentioned as number 1 country where marital rape is LEGAL, completely ignoring the fact that marital rape is punishable under several IPC sections including IPC 498a.
In another Article CNN claimed that 94% rapes are committed by men known to the women. This is as per NCRB data and this is because any relation going wrong and not culminating into marriage can be termed as rape by the woman. So women in these LARGE number of rape cases have consensual sex with their partners but call them as rapists when they don’t marry. Clearly these rapes can’t be related to Delhi rape.
Please note that CNN also shows that number of women sexually assaulted by their husbands is 40 times the number of women attacked by unknown men. But if they knew this fact then why did they promote Delhi or any other city as UNSAFE for women? Where in fact by blindly going by what they have said women are not safe with their partners (if we believe any relation not culminating in marriage is rape).
The very fact that it was projected around International Women’s Day when another BBC video India’s Daughter was set to show the mirror to Indian men but flopped big time when India protested, show that the men who used to call themselves as proud feminists were termed as rapists by the same feminist friends. When MRAs tried to educate such men not to create unnecessary hype around rape those men abused the MRAs thinking they were saving their women, but later same feminists have shown them the mirror, because when they say 40 times women are assaulted in their marriages or 75% of married women in India are raped, they include all such proud male feminists and their family members including their fathers, brothers and other men.
Feminists always say that men do not need justice as the abuse of men is still less compared to that of women and they say when there is no law (in-spite of having multiple legal remedy under several criminal and civil sections) to safeguard women, they show that they have only one agenda behind this, to shame India as a country.
Some human rights groups have filed RTI to understand the extent of involvement of global bodies in India’s family matters and surveys. What the RTI reply revealed was astounding. See the amount of monetary expenditure these UN organizations are making in India’s family related surveys
But why is this UN interest in India’s internal family matters and the countries like USA and UK that have maximum ruined relationship, broken homes, parentless children, crime rate and drug abuse in the world are trying to intervene so much in India’s family matters? Why are global media bent on proving India as unsafe for women and NO law exist to provide remedy to women from “Marital Rape“. The answer is clearly visible from all these actions. UN organizations are pouring money in India’s family surveys so that they can manipulate any data and show the so called happy family system in India is a myth. Indian family system is the biggest place of women abuse and bring in laws that break this strength that India has.
They are today using Indian media to promote this concept. The partnership of NDTV with BBC in promoting India’s Daughter as a mirror to Indian society failed so a need was created to bring Marital Rape in the foray to show Indian men as rapists. This need is aggravated after the recent Supreme Court judgement (Arnesh Kumar vs State of Bihar) in reiterating CRPC 41a amendments restricting arrest and with recent government decision to amend dowry laws in India.
With these changes happening to Indian laws and the misuse restricted the legal terrorism racket that feeds women’s NGOs with the hard earned money of Indian men and their families will be abolished. Rape will bring huge shame to any individual and family, they will suffer social atrocities and push back from the society and this will force them to compromise easily. This is the how it was happening in the initial years of dowry law implementation.
If you as an Indian do not foresee the danger now imagine how will any man keep his job after getting such a false case. Because all companies in their background verification want to know the details of the criminal cases one had undergone. This background verification also takes place in passport renewal process. If one declares that one had a rape case against him, will he ever expect a job or a passport? When men are refused jobs, will women take over? Don’t you think this is forcing our women to work more or are our women even ready for this kind of change?
This story is still incomplete if we don’t understand this entirety. Recently the UN is trying to rebrand feminism under HeForShe campaign where prominent men will vouch for women empowerment and will ask other men and boys to do the same. The underlying assumption in this is women need more empowerment when in reality they have around 50 different provisions to protect them when men have none. So we don’t get surprised when Deepika Padukone asks for ‘My Choice‘ as right, or Madhuri Dixit asks boys ‘Not to make women cry‘ or when Leslee Udwin tries to show mirror to Indian men through a rapist’s mind.
We will understand how desperate media is to prove the urgency of marital rape by the following example. In a recent debate on NDTV, Barkha Dutt didn’t allow men’s side stories to come up properly as she clearly said that she had prejudice against men. Later we came to know that she thought people who came in their debate was for publicity and NOT for discussing different points on the issue. Barkha’s comment to one of the participants from men’s rights side Deepika Bhardwaj on Twitter makes it clear –
This makes us wonder if the women victims who allegedly suffered marital rape and came in the show or the other women NGOs went there for publicity.
Today, Indian media is used to show Indian men as rapists in their bedrooms. This is the invasion of foreign countries in our bedrooms and when they 75% Indian housewives are raped by their husbands they don’t keep almost any husband outside this rapist group. I feel pity for those men who were demanding death penalty for rapists. We repeatedly tried to stop them but they abused us. I had a big debate with fellow bloggers on a bloggers platform. They all thought it was the other men or losers like me who were misogynists or probably rapists. Otherwise, they thought how on earth anyone could not demand death penalty for a crime like rape? Well, today all those bloggers with their father’s have been termed as rapists by the feminist criminals. Hope now they won’t have any problem in getting death penalty.
We need to remember that our lack of understanding or inaction in the past had led to 300 years of slavery to the western world. Today the war is on intellectual grounds. If we do not understand this invasion then very soon we will get into another long drawn slavery of western world.
