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!

Man in America spent 3 yr in jail on false rape complaint

Jail

NEW YORK — A New Jersey woman whose false story about a gang rape sent an innocent man to prison has pleaded guilty to perjury.

Biurny Peguero (BEE’-ur-nee pay-GEHR’-oh) told police she was kidnapped and raped at knifepoint in 2005 by three men, including William McCaffrey.

McCaffrey was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in prison. He served three years before Peguero admitted this spring she had lied. New tests showed DNA from a bite on her arm wasn’t from McCaffrey, and he was released in August.

Peguero pleaded guilty Monday in state Supreme Court in Manhattan. The married mother of two from Union City, N.J., faces a maximum seven years in prison when she’s sentenced in February.

She told authorities she lied because her friends weren’t sympathetic after her encounter with men who had frightened but not attacked her.
