Renuka’s Roundtable Farce

Below is the letter sent out by the Ministry of WCD inviting men’s groups to attend a roundtable to be hosted on June 25, 2008.

 

=======================================

Date : 17 June, 2008

Subject: Round Table on building partnerships with men to promote Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality

 

The Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India and UNIFEM cordially invite you to a round table to discuss strategies on building partnerships with men to promote gender equality and prevent gender based violence on 25th June 2008 as below.

 

Women’s empowerment and gender equality has been identified as key issues in reducing poverty and contributing to the economic development of the country. In spite of several decades of attention to mainstream gender concerns in development policy and practice, gender inequalities that disadvantage girls and women persist in society, including unequal access to education, health care, and income. Gender based violence is an issue, which almost all parts of our society have been forced to confront. It destroys human rights, reverses gains in development, and devastates families and communities. No community is immune to gender based violence – it affects all ages, classes, castes and social groups. It is for this reason that efforts at building more gender equitable society have focused on gender based violence as a fundamental area of concern and policy intervention. While many of these measures are gradually showing positive results, ideas of gender discrimination in the area of violence prevention and gender equality face resistance at several levels.

 

There is urgent need to broaden these interventions to include young boys and men to promote ideas of gender equality and justice.

 

 

 

Observe UNIFEM is sponsoring this charade. The invitations were sent on 17th June, 2008, which indicates the agenda for the meet was set much earlier than that. What more proof do you want that UNIFEM is actively subverting the very foundations of our society by financing and promoting legislative abominations like PWDVA? Most of the Feminazis of India are financed by the UNIFEM, most prominent of them being the architect of PWDVA, Ms Indira Jaising. The misery spread by this particular legislation will be felt for generations unless the citizens and civil society revolt against this madness in large numbers.

 

Most of the gobbledygook in the Ministry’s letter is a straight faced lie if you pick it apart. Gender based violence is a myth propagated by the evil radical feminists who stand to profit from the Domestic Violence Industry. It is anybody’s guess how the “poorly drafted Domestic Violence Act” would address the so-called hypothetical inequalities faced by women in access to education, healthcare and income?

 

It is true, gender based violence destroys human rights, reverses gains in development, and devastates families and communities. Can there be any better example for gender based violence than filing of false cases, in their thousands, by women in collusion with the state machinery, to terrorise the ordinary, law-abiding citizens and families?

 

The letter states – No community is immune to gender based violence – it affects all ages, classes, castes and social groups. How true! With the massive doses of tax-payer funded feminist propaganda, reaching out to far corners of the country, a lot more women living in tranquil family settings are likely to fall prey to this fallacious notion of victimhood.  Once they start unleashing “legal terrorism”, there would be no community that would remain immune to this social disaster of unparalleled proportions that is waiting to engulf our country.

 

Note the words, “gender equitable” – lest one may ask for gender neutrality in the legislation. That more women in domestic relationship face violence than men is a lie propagated by the feminist propaganda machine. This has never been proven in any study. Even if you accept this false premise, what about the small percentage of men who do face domestic violence. Don’t they deserve any protection from the law? In fact, a woman who dares to approach the police claiming domestic violence, in all likelihood is herself the aggressor. Now, look at the double whammy for the male victim of domestic violence – he has to undergo all the penal consequences imposed on the aggressor, while silently suffering the domestic violence on him with no recourse to justice from any quarter.

 

The ministry’s letter states that many of their policy interventions are gradually showing positive results. Which interventions, are they talking about that have shown positive results? Most interventions so far have been unmitigated disasters. Let the statistics speak for themselves. Let me give couple of examples of the great strides made by the WCD –

 

– More than 100,000 thousand innocent women have been arrested in the last four years.

– The number of cases under kidnapping and abduction of women and girls is 23,228 in 2004; 24,373 in 2005; 27,307 in 2006 – a steady increase under the watchful eye of Renuka Chaudhary and her successful policy interventions.

 

While the grinding poverty of lower class citizens of our country, who are left behind in the economic boom, is forcing them to sell their daughters into prostitution, the urban profiteers of the Domestic Violence Industry like Indira Jaising are manufacturing fictitious accounts of Domestic Violence against women to make handsome profits at the expense of social tranquility. How much money was spent since the passage of PWDVA for spreading awareness, for sensitization programs of police and judiciary and for the appointment of the so called protection officers? How much money was doled out to the so called service providers? How many lawyers are having a field day exploiting the legal loopholes in the intentionally poorly drafted law?

 

The letter further states – There is urgent need to broaden these interventions to include young boys and men to promote ideas of gender equality and justice.

 

Oh! No!! There is no need for the Government to fret and sweat about that. Not really!

The NGOs under the umbrella organization of Save Indian Family Foundation are already giving voice to the disenfranchised male and female victims of the state sponsored legal terrorism. The evil radical feminists thought that the victims of their gender-biased, state sponsored legal terrorism would somehow keep quiet, curse their own fates and get on with their lives. Instead, they have formed a strong and sustainable coalition that is growing stronger as the Government continues to plays deaf and blind to their plight.

 

In fact, if there is any, there is urgent need to stop this constant drumbeat of women’s victim hood, so the credulous population would stop believing that their girl child’s life would be a miserable existence with no hope. This will go a long way in reducing the scourge of female foeticide.

    Hi

    I have just come back from my office and I sat down to watch the TV. All I can see is news channel AAJ TAK showing a program ‘Main Aarushi’ and mercilessly trying to make out a story out of her death and how all that would have gone in her own voice. I called aaj tak to register my protest and in response to it, was told that the main motive of the program was getting fulfilled with people calling them.
    It is not the only program that depicts crime/harassment etc in a way that demean the person in question but also raise concern over the credibility and intent of channels like this. I have seen and appreciated your actions taken before in this case and I will like you as the minister for WCD to make sure that such cheap and unwanted programs are not aired.
