Indira Jaising Moans On The First Anniversary Of The “Clumsily Drafted” DV Act

Matrimonial home is  not just a building made of bricks and walls. It is a home/place comprising of sweetness of relations of family members and elders, full of blessing.

-Justice Shiv Narain Dhingra

In contrast to what the noble Justice Dhingra has written, please read the drivel dished out by the leading Indian Feminazi, Indira Jaising. Here is the link to the IE article titled Family Against Woman. I believe it should have been titled Woman Against Family:

http://www.indianexpress.com/story/232409.html

Here is the report she published on the first anniversary of the DV Act called “Staying Alive”. This report was paid for by UNIFEM and it is full of bullshit. This is the report that establishes the link between her and the IGP called S Umapathi, who has allegedly been selling Interpol Red Corner notices against NRI techies from AP.

An excerpt: “This provision suffered a major setback at the hands of the judiciary. The Supreme Court, even before the ink on the Act was dry, declared in a judgment that a woman could claim this right only in relation to a household owned/ rented by her husband. This means that even if her husband lives with his parents and she has her matrimonial residence there, she cannot claim right to residence there. The judgment not only overlooks the law itself, it also overlooks the existing social reality of the joint family, which continues to be the predominant pattern.”

Here is the excerpt from the SC judgment, Batra Vs Batra, 2007.

Below is what the judges of the Supreme Court had to say about this badly drafted law, and this is what Indira Jaising is moaning.

“20. If the aforesaid submission is accepted, then it will mean that wherever the husband and wife lived together in the past that property becomes a shared household. It is quite possible that the husband and wife may have lived together in dozens of places e.g. with the husband’s father, husband’s paternal grand parents, his maternal parents, uncles, aunts, brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces etc. If the interpretation canvassed by the learned Counsel for the respondent is accepted, all these houses of the husband’s relatives will be shared households and the wife can well insist in living in the all these houses of her husband’s relatives merely because she had stayed with her husband for some time in those houses in the past.

Such a view would lead to chaos and would be absurd.. It is well settled that any interpretation which leads to absurdity should not be accepted.

—-

23. No doubt, the definition of ‘shared household’ in Section 2(s) of the Act is not very happily worded, and appears to be the result of clumsy drafting, but we have to give it an interpretation which is sensible and which does not lead to chaos in society.”

The strategy of Indian feminazis has been to attack, and encourage attacks, on the judiciary whenever they faced a set back. The ongoing attacks on Justice Shiv Narayan Dhingra are prime examples of this strategy in action.

Here is a classic from the idiocy called the PWDVA, 2005.

17. Right to reside in a shared household.-

(1) Notwithstanding anything contained in any other law for the time being in force, every woman in a domestic relationship shall have the right to reside in the shared household, whether or not she has any right, title or beneficial interest in the same.

Hello !! This is a carte blanche to legally occupy the home of anyone unfortunate enough to have had a “domestic relationship” with a woman in India. A woman who has been in a domestic relationship, now has more power than the PM or the CM to strip a person of his right to own his own property. It is no wonder that the SC called it a clumsily drafted law.

Delhi HC: Politicians Should Stay At Home If They Feel Threatened

25 Oct 2007

PTI

NEW DELHI: Observing they were not a “national asset”, the Delhi High Court on Friday took the politicians head on over having their security guards on tow when they step out and wryly told them to remain in the confines of their homes and offices if they feel threatened by citizens.
“You should not let these men (politicians ) to come out. Their presence in public places itself threatens the common men. I do not know why it has become a matter of prestige for them to move with 10-15 uniform security personnel carrying lethal weapon,” a Bench comprising Justice T S Thakur and Justice Veena Birbal told the Centre.
The court made these harsh observations while expressing displeasure over the inconvenience the public have to put up by the overwhelming presence of security guards accompanying politicians at public places.
The Court’s observation came while hearing a PIL on police reforms seeking separation of force into two wings to deal with law and order and Investigation independently.
In sharp remarks laced with sarcasm, the judges could not hide their dismay when they said “If these people feel so threatened they should not come out in public places.”
The judges said they (politicians) were not a national asset which should be protected and if they were, the citizens would protect and there was no need to be threatened by them (public).
“It has become fashionable and a status symbol. The more people(security men) surrounds these people(politicians) the more prestigious they feel. It is obnoxious that common men are forced to stay on the sidelines and are prevented to walk on the pavements when the politicians pass through”, the Court said.

Eighth Report Of The National Police Commission

Here is the link to the document:

http://bprd.gov.in/writereaddata/mainlinkFile/File853.pdf

I sourced this from the BPRD website: http://bprd.gov.in/

Here is an excerpt. It is pretty damning as it describes the precise state of affairs in the country:

Accountability To The People:

As stated earlier, at present the concept of total anonymity of the bureaucratic executive and undiluted ministerial responsibility to the people has resulted in distortions affecting police efficiency and citizen-satisfaction. Unfortunately, therefore, the concept of ministerial responsibility has given the wrong impression to the political executive that they are authorised to guide and intervene in all functions of the police in all areas regardless of such guidance or intervention being in accordance with or in contravention of the law of the land. We have brought into clear focus in our earlier reports the harm this has done to the people. We wish to emphasise that it is ultimately the people whose agents the police functionaries are and to whom they are ultimately accountable. Realisation of this concept in our opinion, is of vital importance. We however, find that the process of the police accountability to the people has suffered considerable distortion in the recent past. Various pressure and elite groups have come to develop in society having infinite expectations from all Government departments including the police and seeking favours to the exclusion of legality and fair play. These are members of State and Central Legislatures, the local bodies, important functionaries of political parties, particularly the ruling ones, representatives of the local, yellow press, other important persons of the locality and Government servants holding important positions, who have tended to divert the police accountability from the people to themselves. Police functionaries, therefore, also have tended to shift their priorities on to these pressure groups. This has had obvious effect on the attitude of the common people themselves, who feel that the public services including the police service are meant only to serve the elitist groups and in case they wish to avail of any public service, they have to purchase it through illegal gratification or secure it through exercise of pressures from power-wielding sections of the society.

Global Warming And Its Effect On India

As you may have guessed, the three things that I am concerned about the most are:

  • Global warming and its effects on India
  • Corruption in India
  • Bait and switch tactics used by the Indian Feminazis.

I’ve decided to collect all my posts on global warming on this page.

  • Here is a graphic on the effects of global warming on animals

Some Interesting Stats On Arrests Of Women

In 1930, the British govt arrested 17,000 women for their involvement in the Dandi Yatra (Salt March). During 1937 to 1947 (10 Years), they arrested 5,000 women involved in the freedom struggle. From 2004 to 2006, the govt of India arrested 90,000 women of all ages under 498A. On the average, 27,000 women per year are being arrested under this flawed law. These are stats from the NCRB.

The family of the writer was tortured by the Indian Police in an attempt to extort over a $100,000 by holding them in custody for over a week. The police, in cahoots with the magistrate and the PP, did this due to the ridiculous allegations made in a 498A case by his embittered ex-wife. She filed the case years after he and his family had last seen her. Thousands of 498A cases are filed each year in India by women seeking to wreak vengeance on their husbands and in-laws. Enormous sums are extorted from intimidated families implicated in these cases by corrupt Indian police officers and elements of the Indian judiciary. The author and his family haven't bribed any public official nor have they given in to the extortion. This blog aims to raise awareness of due process in India.
