The President Of India,

Subject: Strong protest by “National Family Harmony Society® on proposal of Sexual Offender’s Register

About National Family Harmony Society®: “National Family Harmony Society® NFHS is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) promoting the cause of “family harmony” and “gender equality”. It is registered under “The Karnataka Societies Registration Act, 1960” and is based in Bangalore. We have branches in more than 16 states and in abroad too. We have approximately 16000 members all over India. To know more about us please visit http://www.family-harmony.org / www.498a.org.in.

This is regarding the recent news reports appearing in a section of the media regarding the proposal from Ministry of Home affairs for registry of sex offenders, convicted of sexual offences ranging from voyeurism and stalking to rape and aggravated sexual assault. There is no doubt that we need to do everything to ensure safety of women but while doing so we seems to be guided by emotions and sentiments rather than by past experience.

I as president of National Family Harmony Society register my protest on the said proposal on below counts.

Firstly, before drafting such important legislation, no public consultation has been done which is the normal practice. Even in case of debate over the validity of National Judicial Accountable Commission – NJAC, Supreme Court has invited suggestions from common public and NGOs but before framing such important legislation, Government has not deemed it necessary to initiate public opinion.

Secondly, we know that the victim is severely traumatized in case of the crime. The cases received at our NGO with respect to 498A IPC and Domestic Violence Act shows that when these laws are misused and false cases are filed then the accused is so traumatized that they are driven on the verge of suicide. So we demand that those filing false cases and those who misuse the law should also be penalized and should be shamed so that only those who have been genuinely victimized use the law. All those who misuse the law should also be named in the separate register.

Thirdly, we strongly feel that just adding a person based on the conviction of the lower court may lead to severe damage to the accused in case he is acquitted by the higher courts. So a person’s name should not be added in the Sex Offender’s Register (SOR) unless he has exhausted all his legal and fundamental right till from Supreme Court.

Fourthly, if such persons who are named in the register want to reform then such register will come in the way of their integration in the society. No one will employ them because there name exist in the register. If such people fail to get employment due to this then they may go to any extent for their livelihood. This will prove to be counter-productive.

Fifthly, I feel, placing the man’s name on the registry, which is public, amounts to cruel and/or unusual punishment under the Constitution. Having his name on the searchable database will hurt his ability to find jobs, affect his family life and resulted in depression.

Sixthly, bringing new laws for the ever changing society is needed but what is also needed is proper checks and balances to prevent its misuse because our criminal system is based on a single innocent should not be punished. This is very important in the light of thousands of incidents recently reported which were found to be false. There have been incidents where a person was convicted on false complaint and were later acquitted by High Court or Supreme Court.

With profound respects, Jai Hind!!!

Dear Sir,

The heavy misuse of 498A IPC by estranged wives in case of matrimonial dispute is increasing day by day. This fact is acknowledged by various High Courts and Honorable Supreme Court. In almost every session of parliament, honorable members of the parliaments are asking questions to the Government regarding heavy misuse of Dowry Laws and measures taken by Government to curb its misuse. Every other day newspapers carry news articles about heavy misuse of Dowry related laws and protest done by husbands and his family members who have to undergo humiliation, harassment and torture due to these Women Centric laws. There are also scores of news articles where the husbands and his family members have committed suicide as they were unable to cope up the pressure of false criminal cases.

Our police who are trained to deal with criminals are insensitive and incapable to deal with a complaint of the matrimonial dispute. Our NGO receives large number of cases of harassed husbands who have to go through the agony and harassment in the police stations which are acting as settlement centers to extract huge amount of money from husbands to settle the dispute which are of matrimonial in nature. Use of physical force and abusive language against husbands and his family members inside the police stations is norm of the day.

Honorable Justice Regupathi of the Chennai High Court issued the following observation in M.P. No.1/2008 in Criminal Original Petition No.10896/2008 filed by Tr.Romaiah. In compliance of the observation made in the above said order, DGP-Tamil Nadu has issued a Circular Memorandum for the State Police of Tamil Nadu.

We, National Family Harmony Society, request your office to direct DGP-Karnataka to issue a similar Circular for the State Police of Karnataka. If such a circular is issued and implemented in true spirit then it will go a long way to curb the heavy misuse of the 498A IPC.

Dear Sir, 

We request your kind self to take measures regarding the huge pendency in the family court Bangalore. As per media reports thousands of cases are pending in the family court, Bangalore from many years. To get divorce or child custody it takes many years. Even to dispose an interim application it takes many months. The litigants go to the family court just to get another date. Adjournments, delay and endless wait in the Family Court are the norm of the day. These litigants need to be treated with extra care and emotion as these cases are different from a cheque bounce or a property dispute case. These cases involve human emotions and sentiments. 

Our NGO works very closely with family court litigants and we provide counseling and other possible advice and help to the litigants of the family court. These litigants have a failed marriage and had already undergone lot of trouble, harassment and mental torture due to a failed marriage. Such litigants approach Family Court to get some relief or Justice. But they are further tortured and harassed by a system which is extremely slow, inefficient and insensitive to the needs of such litigants. 

Our NGO has received cases where litigants are having suicidal tendencies due to the in-ordinate delays in disposing the cases. In order to alleviate the sufferings of the litigants of family courts, we wish to present the following list of proposals and suggestions to your kind self: 

  • Induct more judges and extend the court timings to late evenings.
  • Family courts should start an evening shift in addition to the regular day shift.
  • Due to the heavy pendency of the cases Family Courts should operate on Sundays also with additional judges.
  • Additional 6 more family courts in addition to the existing 4 family courts should be opened without any further delay to cope up with the huge pendency.
  • The Family Courts shall ensure that all matrimonial cases be disposed within a period of Six months.
  • The Family Courts to officially suspend the practice of summer vacation to the benches till the time limit of Six months is met.
  • The Family Courts to officially state that no new cases to be taken till the old ones are disposed.
  • All long-pending (one year and above) cases should be transferred to the Fast Track Courts to dispose of within a time limit.
  • Family Court records must be computerized so that old cases can be disposed on a priority basis and cases can be tracked scientifically.
  • As there are overload on the court on a particular date and less-load on some dates hence the practice of giving dates in the open court must be stopped. Instead dates must be given by the computer section like in Supreme Court or judges should be given computer training and computers must be installed so that dates are given in a scientific way.
  • The tendency of one party to drag the cases to delay the proceeding must be dealt severely with heavy cost and other means.
  • Judges must be sensitized to the fact that they are dealing with the cases involving Human life that are driven by emotional issues in case of matrimonial issues which are very different from a criminal case.

Please save the family and thereby save our great Nation to retain India a Vasudeva Kutumbaham.

Dear Sir,

Taking acknowledgement of the rampant misuse of the 498A IPC, Union Ministry of Home Affairs had issued an Advisory to all the state governments and UTs, dated 20-October-2009 vide no 3/5/2008-Judl Cell.

Acting on the said Advisory of the Union Ministry of Home Affairs only the Maharashtra Government has issued a state level circular.

Main highlights of the circular issued by the Maharashtra Government are below.

Police should not arrest the accused without a warrant.

Police should conduct a preliminary inquiry before filing a First Information Report (FIR)

Police told to first verify the complaint before registering it

National Family Harmony Society is requesting for a similar circular for the Karnataka Police from the Government of Karnataka so that heavy misuse of the 498A IPC can be curbed and innocent husbands and his family members who are being implicated in the false cases can get some respite and relief. Till date there is no circular issued from the Government of Karnataka. The state police is not obliged to follow a central Advisory, thus defeating the very purpose of the MHA advisory.

In this regard we National Family Harmony Society yourself to kindly direct the Government of Karnataka to issue a circular for the Karnataka Police.
