Jail Bharo Andolan

JAIL BHARO!!!

DOWRY IS NOT A CRIME…BEING A MAN OR HIS KIN IS!

For more info, call 9704683163, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.

All India Men’s Welfare Association (http://aimwa.in)

Thousands of husbands and their families are arrested every year, without evidence or investigation, under IPC Sections 498A, 304B, Dowry Prohibition Act, and related wife-centric laws.

Anti-dowry laws are among the most abused laws in India:

• The President of India, High Courts of various States, the Supreme Court of India and the World Health Organization have noted the misuse of dowry laws.

• National Human Rights Commission has issued guidelines to stop unnecessary arrests.

• The Commissioner of Police, Hyderabad, issued standing instructions through a memo vide No.L&O/M6/1315/2002 to check arbitrary arrests.

• The AP Police Dept. has a web page entitled “Abuse of 498A” on their Department website.

• The Union Ministry of Home Affairs issued an advisory to all the State Governments and Union Territories on checking the misuse of Section 498A.

BUT…

Abuse of police powers continues;

Unnecessary arrests have only been increasing in the State;

Innocent citizens are illegally detained, humiliated, subjected to mental and physical torture;

Blackmail and extortion have become a daily business;

…all in the name of “protecting women from cruelty and harassment”.

UNDERSTAND:

• The real motive behind these arrests is to terrorize you and extort money from you under

the threat of imprisonment and long-drawn legal battles.

• The Government of India is trivializing our pleas to stop arbitrary arrests of citizens under

anti-dowry laws.

• The Government is making new laws (sexual assault, work place harassment, acid attacks

etc.) which stress on immediate arrest of men upon mere accusations made by women.

REMEMBER:

􀂾 Arrest is inevitable for any man facing allegations of abuse or assault.

􀂾 Be prepared to go to jail along with your family even if you committed no crime!

􀂾 Free yourself from the fear of jail!

􀂾 Get over the humiliation and suffering of being dragged into the streets!

􀂾 Do not drive yourself into depression, ruin your health or end your own life!

􀂾 Do not give in to blackmail and extortion!

􀂾 Learn about your human, constitutional and legal rights!

􀂾 Fight back for your honour, dignity and justice!

IF THEY WON’T MAKE 498A GO AWAY, LET’S MAKE THE FEAR GO AWAY!

Jail bharo! Jail bharo! Giraftaaree se nahee daro!
