After a man wrote an open letter (published by us earlier) to Maneka Gandhi, The Union Minister for Women and Child Development in India, she wanted to know his suggestions on Twitter.
In his mail he challenged the constitutional validity of the existence of the ministry as he said that when the basic premise of Indian Constitution is about creating equality, there can’t exist a ministry specifically to create benefits for women depriving men and create inequality. The “Special Provisions” mentioned in Indian Constitution can’t be construed as “All Benefits given only to women” as he challenges the ministry’s concept of considering women as oppressed gender.
He said that the minister can also claim as a victim tomorrow with he being the oppressor. Here’s the mail –
Ministry of Women and Child Development
Union of India,
It is unfortunate for me that I am writing this mail to a ministry on the request of the minister herself when the ministry has lost constitutional validity of its existence.
Indian Constitution that talks about giving the government right to create “special provisions” for women never gave the right to the government to give ALL benefits only to women. The very existence of this ministry today proves it is set up to deny all rights for men and should cease to exist any longer. This if because the basic tenets of constitution is about equality and NOT about creating bias. So existence of a ministry only for women while the same is non existent for men, shows the violation of our Constitution itself. This cannot be considered as a special provision for women in any manner.
You might have already read my articles on why The National Policy For Women is outrageous, shameful and should be withdrawn without a second thought, because the benefits you plan to give to women simply for their gender is not special provision but violating rights of men like me directly.
The policy clearly shows tyrannical nature of the ministry that promises to snatch all rights of men to live peacefully and with dignity. You have shown plans not only to take away reproductive rights of men by proposing focus on Male sterilisation but want to snatch right to have a dignified life from differently able men as well. You are openly talking about creating bias against boys so that they find it difficult to be competitive in education or in developing skills for getting jobs. If that was not all, you have plans to manipulate govt data and monitor media as well. I can say this, because I read the intentions behind the innocently worded policy.
I am sure you and people from your ministry have read all the articles I have written against this policy before asking me to send this mail with my concerns. Hence, I am not elaborating it in any further.
Do I expect anything from you? What can anyone expect from a ministry which doesn’t have any constitutional validity of existence? What can I expect from you when in-spite of being a minister you are oppressed and I am the oppressor only because of our genders? What can a normal male citizen with no political backing expect when he knows even a minister can play the victim card tomorrow because of her gender. Because if you didn’t consider any of the above as true then you wouldn’t have created outline for denying all rights for men like me and given all benefits to women like you.
So I will not be surprised if tomorrow this mail is projected by Indian media to show how oppressed women in India are that even a minister received this mail when she asked for a citizen’s concerns.
We surely do not want a ministry like yours that is set to take us backwards.This ministry has lost all its legitimate rights of existence as the open hatred created by your actions are clearly visible now.
Not sure how much you could understand. I don’t expect too much either. Had to write this mail only because you wanted me to. Now you can play the victim card. Since I am born as a male, I will always be the oppressor and women like Rohtak Sisters will get bravery award from women’s commission. After you fill media with feminists, and consider everything said against women as online violence, they may be considered as god as well… Because no one will dare to say criminals need punishment, not award.
No, we normal citizens have stopped expecting anything from this government and the politicians for ever oppressed women. You better know that not many people like it anyways and the ever growing victimhood of women is under question now. Even by monitoring media you can’t contain that.
The oppressor Indian male who does not have any rights…
