Every accused is not a culprit, they face false blame too.
Is it time to think whether we are actually moving towards a society which does not discriminate between genders? While empowerment of women and the call for gender equality is gaining momentum, is another sort of discrimination gaining ground? Are men being discriminated against women? How should we deal with cases of false accusation against men?
In India #MenToo movement is gradually picking up, and why shouldn't it be? Every person has a right to a respectable life and no one else has the right to oppose it. Gender discrimination has played a demeaning role in our country. The worst victim of it is the females, but now when some change is taking place to uplift the condition of the women, the men are facing backlash.
In many cases, the police, the judiciary and the people around are blindly against men, which is ridiculous. Men are fathers, uncles, brothers, brothers-in-law, sons, nephews, friends, colleagues and neighbours too, how can all the men be blamed just because they are males. False domestic violence cases, fake rape cases, women murderers, acid attack by women and what not in which women are the conspirators and not the victims. When the Indian society is going through such a phase, then justice should not be determined on a gender basis.
Giving importance to one woman with wrong ideas, police and judiciary are ruining the lives of innocent mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, female friends, and so on. It's high time that we Indians behave like good samaritans, and so our custodians of law should come up with gender-neutral laws and must deal with the culprits strictly while protecting the accused who may be innocent victims.
