Daaman and it’s brother NGOs across the country organize weekly meetings for those who understand that men in India need safeguards against the discrimination they face in society and laws. We invite all to be a part of the only movement that respects human rights of all, irrespective of gender.
Even though we invite everyone to join our meetings and many people join too, but for male victims of gender bias laws, our weekly meetings are the place that provides the best ecosystem encouraging contesting properly and winning the cases.
Victim of gender-biased laws…
Because of ongoing gender bias in society and laws, you have been betrayed by the person whom you trusted most.
Whenever you go to the police, they also extort money from you.
People whom you trusted, cheated you.
Most of you cannot tell what happened in your life even to your colleagues.
Everyone in society only suggests surrendering and compromising without understanding the fact that compromising in such situations is like as if you’ve been asked to kiss the person who has his feet on your throat.
You are humiliated, you feel cheated, you feel betrayed, and you feel your life is spoiled when you see normal people enjoying their life, shopping, playing with their kids in the park, who enjoy the latest blockbusters.
You are puzzled about how it can happen to you because you had done none harm to anyone.
You are thinking, how much lawyer will charge you for the next hearing.
Why victims must attend weekly meetings?
Weekly meetings are conducted for the benefit of victims.
Most of the organizers of the meetings themselves at some point in time were/are victims.
If money could've solved the problem, then by this time you would've solved it.
Because a victim cannot discuss his problems even to his close friends, because being brought up in a misandric society, it’s not likely that they will understand the victim’s problems and also they will not understand the legal complications. They may not even have gone through the humiliation, harassment, and torture of a police station.
To develop friends in the meeting so that one or two friends are aware of your case and can advise you accordingly.
To develop an emergency backup.
To know what is happening in others' cases and learn from their experience.
To know what kind of judgment your judge is passing and fine-tune your case/argument accordingly.
To know the latest judgments and other related news.
To take part in the letter campaigns and other protest activities.
To develop a support structure.
Share each other’s knowledge and experience
To be in a group. Remember a group is more powerful than an individual. A group voice is heard by media, police and even by the government.
You can learn many counter fight techniques.
You can benefit from special sessions in the meetings.
You have a platform to fight injustice done to you.
Just by virtue of attending weekly meetings, you enhance your confidence.
Due to the meetings, you will get the opportunity to interact with judges and media with whom you can share your pain and sorrow.
There are many senior members in the group who have much more knowledge and experience than the lawyers.
By participating in the weekly meeting you can do social service by helping others.
Can have company in Court hall in an envy environment.
In weekly meetings you have people who 'listen to you too, else none is bothered in the world to listen to you.
So, we strongly suggest and invite one and all to join our meetings and be a part of the fight for the cause of men.
