CHANDIGARH: On Friendship Day, the Save Indian Family foundation (SIFF) has launched a SMS campaign to warn the would be grooms to be ware of deadly weapon in the hands of bride grooms- Section 498 A of Indian Panel Code which has made marrying in India a crime.

 

“Filing a complaint under section 498A is as easy as ordering an idli sambar to a road side vendor and actually, it is easier—the vendor may refuse to provide the dish but the police cannot refuse to listen to bride grooms”, claimed the members of Save Indian Family foundation (SIFF).

A SIFF spokesman said, their aim is to make aware of the consequence that a man can face marrying in India. The SMS campaign, which was carried throughout the day targeted the people of Chandigarh, its counterparts, Punjab and Haryana. Thousands of SMSs were sent, saying, “If men in India wish to face the threat of losing their jobs and social status, then they should consider marrying in India. If you marry in India, then you have to abide by the laws of the land," stated SIFF.

“As far as revision of the law is concerned, National Commission for Women (NCW) maintains that strict dowry law is the sole way to ensure women empowerment and this is the only way to instigate the police and judiciary to get working.

SIFF through the SMS campaign warned the people to be careful of the Indian dowry laws and its misuse”, said Gaurav Saini.

The grooms targeted under this law are mostly wealthy and highly educated doctors, engineers, scientists and businessmen who are highly successful and have proven themselves in the career front. These people are threatened by the unscrupulous wives in collusion with the police to shell out crores of rupees as compromise amounts or find their names alongside dreaded international terrorists or drug smugglers.

“Such campaigns will continue in the coming future”, said the organisation.

Avnish Ji

I kindly request you to please tell these SIFF people to launch compaign of sms / letter for change of these biased laws, which is basically responsible for all this.

Once the balanced laws are in place no spouse (specially wifes) will try for divorce. 

Thanks

Avnish Ji SEEMS to be a powerful lady. She is going to change the face of marital laws and may be constitution itself . we are proud to have her in LCI. SIFF members should sit in the parliament and form a majority group to bring about necessary changes in the policies and the constitution itself. All the best.

the vendor may refuse to provide the dish but the police cannot refuse to listen to bride grooms”, - Should we read it as bride???

 

Not just marriage, alomost everything in india is crime.....try live with dignity & morals... crime, try to pacify wife at the cost of mom crime... try to pacify mom at the cost of spouse crime, try not to keep any relation with inlaws crime in the eyes of the spouse....... try to live on your own terms... crime

 

the laws are there for everyone and how you use it for your gain is the crux.....

as the saying goes "The winner always has a plan, the loser an excuse........

Simple solution: those who think marrying is a crime, do not marry or remarry; discourage your brother, sister, daughter, son, and grandsons and grand daughters not to get married. Just walk the talk, just talk may not be enough. Start from your own homes. Those who are already married: again your own family members ask them to come out of marriage....Reform from homes would have better impact than sending SMS! It would be like a non violent and silent revolution!

Sorry read just revolution and not non violent and silent revolution! Because the existing marriage then have to break and that would make a lot of noise which is good for the cause

"On Friendship Day, the Save Indian Family foundation (SIFF) has launched a SMS campaign to warn the would be grooms to be ware of deadly weapon in the hands of bride grooms- Section 498 A of Indian Panel Code which has made marrying in India a crime."...................................

 

 

What's the suggestion?

 

 

Are SIFF members suggesting to ensure that ............... marriage solemnisation and registration doesn't fall/come under Jurisdiction of Courts in India? Isn't that a good way to circumvent this problem?
