Please read it and take it with utmost seriousness.
Daaman WhatsApp groups are meant primarily for activism and secondly to assist members in the fight against gender-biased laws & their cases. Above everything else, to remove misandry from society. This is a self-help group for the sake of convenience and accessibility. We have certain conditions and guidelines, for all possible reasons, including the safety of members and to have defined & desired skill set.
Our group does not support any paid model or transaction of money in return for support, but that doesn’t mean we are a disposable freebie.
We’ve observed that members, who are local in cities where weekly meetings are organised, are least interested in joining meetings and on the contrary, are seeking everything from WhatsApp groups!
We also add members who approach us through SIF-One, FB or through any other medium and do not have weekly meetings in their cities. We’ve been doing this as a helping gesture, if someone tries to exploit, we check.
SIF/Daaman WhatsApp groups are meant to add maximum people and not to add same people in maximum groups.
Members of our groups are required to satisfy the following conditions:
All local members will need to attend weekly meetings. (At least two meetings per month). For details of our weekly meetings, click here.
Outside members are added only as counsellors, to guide victims.
Victims living in other cities/states, attending meetings there, but have cases at Daaman meeting locations can also be added once they get themselves recommended by some senior/counsellor/organiser of the weekly meeting they attend.
All members, local or outsiders are required to fill a form (see bottom of page).
Any member added without details even in urgency, will be allowed only 5 days to furnish details.
Please do not post any content which might deem to be offensive towards any section of the society which includes, and is not limited to the relatives, in-laws, police, judiciary, and political parties.
Please do not post any sensitive information pertaining to your case; have long conversations on this forum about your case.
Do not post jokes or any other material which is not related to our cause.
Please do not post any material which might send out a wrong message or dissuade other members from being a part of our cause.
Please make sure you put your full name in your Whatsapp profile, to be a part of / continue being a part of Daaman group.
Please make sure you update your Whatsapp regularly.
In the case of any questions regarding Daaman group, please contact the moderators.
If you are removed from this group, and before you contact a moderator personally, please try to analyse what went wrong on your part.
New members, after joining the group, please provide brief details about your dispute, location, and full name on this group.
As a basic SIF policy, neither any advocate nor discussions about advocates allowed in the group.
The single objective of our groups is to fight gender-biased laws in every possible manner, but recently we observed that only this is something which is mostly avoided! Does this leave any scope for such non-interested members to be in the group?
Based upon the activity and effectiveness of an admin we change the role from time to time.
@Admins, please don’t add any new faces if you don’t know the person or if he does not fulfil above-mentioned conditions. Before adding anyone make him aware of the objective of this group and the rules mentioned above.
Any unwanted forwards/content will lead to suspension from the group, in the first instance! Any repeated violation of rule will lead to removal from the group (If everyone posts only one forwarded message per day, imagine the havoc group members will be in).
Any sort of arrogance, showing unnecessary intolerance, personal direct attack in the group or on the personal message will not be tolerated; such conduct will be taken as rule violation and can lead to removal from the group, without notice as well.
The decision of group administrators will be final.
Kindly attend the weekly meetings regularly. There is NO Alternative for Learning, Sharing & Taking our Cause forward.
In times of emergency, call our helpline number at 8882-498-498, single helpline number for men in distress in India.
Thanking you all in anticipation and expecting your cooperation.
