Indian law makers do not see Domestic Violence (DV) with Male, they believe that women are the only victims of domestic violence as they are weaker section of society.
Here we must discuss, “weaker section”. What is “weaker section”? Is this about the physical, mental or economical strength. So yes, this is about all.
The same law maker never see a man as weaker even if the man is physically or financially challenged. So it will not be wrong to state that considering women as “weaker” is not more than the law makers myth.
Even today, you can see woman working as CEO and also working on top posts. They participating in running the country. We had female President Ho’ble Pratibha Devisingh Patil, Prime minister Smt. Indira Gandhi, Smt Sushma Swaraj served as Minister of External Affairs, Nirmala Sitharaman has also served as Minister of Defence and presently she is serving as Minister of Finance.
More importantly that “violence on male by women is a matter of laugh, while this is a serious offence if the violence happened on female.”
So women has secured their position every where, be it judiciary or legislation or any other front. But due to myth of the law makers, men and Indian families are suffering.
Now the society has changed, but our laws are century old, which required to be reformed in changing society and changing family system. Its time to take-up domestic violence on male.
