Avoid any interaction with women- new proposed laws

Advocate

Laws are abused and government is making such new laws everyday so that more and more laws can be misused against men.

 A new Section 376D has been proposed with says that,

(1) Any man who with a s*xual purpose,

touches, directly or indirectly, with a part of the body or with an object, any part of the body of a woman, without the consent of such woman, shall be punished with simple imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years or with fine or with both.

Provided that, if the man is related to the woman, he shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to 7 years and with fine "

Thus by mere touching a women, a man can get 7 years. A woman can say anytime that such touch is for s*xual purposes.

In fact in another new proposed provision, even touch is not required. Mere sight or uttering of some word is enough, read proposed Section 509,

Whoever, with a s*xual purpose or with the intention to

insult any woman, utters any word, makes any sound or gesture, or exhibits any object or a part of the body intending that such word or sound shall be heard, or that such gesture or object shall be seen, by such woman, or intrudes upon the privacy of such woman, shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine.”

How many laws we need to awaken men- so that they can remember that at some point of time they fought for their honour.

And what about evidence of such accusations? On the basis of experience, ancient laws considered that  women’s evidence is not reliable. Now the law presumes that women’s words are  conclusive when they  are accusing a man.

 very strange, Being a woman i also oppose such laws as they are grossly misused and the times have now changed. I have seen women around me taking wrong benefit of such laws. Such stringent provisions are not beneficial to those who are in dire need of them but are being misused by women for fulfilling their selfish motives.

This is all for law abiding citizens. For others laws hardly matter and they know how to 'manage' law and courts and police etc. In India every day law abiding citizens are being roped in by varieties of laws and rules and regulation but for law breakers the system is ineffective. Commonmen is getting convinced that it is better to learn how to 'manage' law, courts and police rather than abiding  laws.

J P shah has raised a very important point. Some persons in the society are law abiding & some are not. A society can function till the point number of law abiders far outnumber law breakers. For example if in our country 1% law breakers means 1.3 crore persons- almost impossible to manage with the existing resources.

Thus it is important to communicate to law abidingcitizens to remain law abiding by not harassing the innocent (that is the basis logic behind the maxim- let hundred guilty go unpunished but inocent must not be punished.) Such laws and abuse of such laws communicate to people that there is no point being law abiding- you can be punished even when you are innocent.

This is bad for the society. In course of time it can create anarchy- and in anarchy women are the worst sufferers. Women has to take lead in opposing such anarchist laws.

Yes. on average, a law abiding person remains unsuccessful and even he is called impractical and unsocial. this experience is prevalent in every feild, may it be  politics, general administration,  judicial system or daily life in the society.

With all respects to you, I agree and as you know in any case under Sec. 354, 376, 498-a or for that matter any case filed by a woman under PDV ACt, or in any other complaint by a woman against a man, the courts were saying that the evidence of the procutrix is is sufficient. Then where the man lands?. Any womn can say all the words in a court of law which are covered under the proposed amendment, if she wants to wreck vengence against a particular man. Oh god what a pity.

that is why all theses types of laws and amendments are mostly misused, abused and  can any body help the situation.

You are right and the only option left with men, to avoid such false charges and punishment of accused in indian legal system (although they say innocence is presumed), the only way to avoid interacting with women.

On a pure short term view, we can say that these laws are against men- but when i see things on a longer perspective- these laws harm the women more. It reduces the trust level, which society has in women and it harm them on a longer time frame. In recent times, various studies has shown that a class which does not inspire confidence & trust is likely to loose very heavily in the long term.

In the corporate level, we see top level women employee- pepsi, icici, britania- they reach to that position without such laws. We have to see if women maintain this position with these laws or not.

Now the men will be very careful and suspicious if they want to help a women. therefore, it is true that  even for women, laws are more dangerous than beneficial. in general these laws are destroying the social structure and harmony.
