2 crore men may soon be without brides: NCW chief

NAGPUR: Marriageable men in India would soon face difficulty finding brides. Female infanticide in the country has led to skewed gender ratio, National Commission for Women (NCW) chairperson Mamta Sharma said here on Wednesday. “What is more alarming is that gender discrimination is more in urban centres that are supposed to have higher literacy rate than in less literate rural areas,” said Sharma.

“The situation is worse in north Indian States like Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. In South India, the ratio is better but in those states the incidence of domestic violence is high,” NCW chief said. “In near future, NCW is apprehensive that the country will have around two crore bachelors who will face difficulty in finding a suitable match if the trend of female infanticide continued,” Sharma said quoting data with NCW.

The male-female ratio would drop to such a level that it would be difficult to bridge the gap, Sharma said. NCW was intensifying its awareness campaign to stop female infanticide and killing of female fetuses which was rampant in some parts, particularly north. “The practice continues in most state across the country. Even in Maharashtra, it was rampant in district like Beed,” she added.

Asked if recent stringent law against rape would make any difference, Sharma voiced her reservations saying: “A new set of laws would hardly make a difference. Strong laws were already there. What matters more is implementation. There is need for sensitizing the police force as well as judiciary for faster trials and better conviction rates. Victims, mostly from economically poor background, suffer as the police fail to press correct charges and a weak case does not stand in courts,” Sharma remarked.

The NCW chief noted that after the recent awareness campaigns by social organizations have been effective. “But there is a long way to go and there is need for change of mindset to give women the respect they deserve,” Sharma noted. NCW would soon sign an MoU with Western Railway for creating awareness among railway staff on suburban trains in Mumbai on how to treat female passengers and commuters while travelling and also how to protect and help them in distress.

Sharma, who was here for the inaugural function of “Padharo Rajasthan” festival, said NCW was also initiating steps to curb trafficking from Pakistan, Nepal, China and Bangladesh borders. She said NCW would hold meeting with heads of security forces manning borders to discuss measures to check trafficking.

    I respectfully ask Ms. Mamta Sharma to shed away such unfounded and these baseless fears. Where been she raising such concerns when Gay And Lesbian freedom Marches pictures been hitting the headlines on all global Visual and Print Media Headlines? OR, When she raised such concerns when Gay And Lesbian MARRIAGE LAWS WERE BEEN PASSED BY CERTAIN NATIONS ?

    AND BESIDES, IN WHICH RELIGION OR FAITH OF HUMANITY IS THERE ANY COMPULSION THAT A MAN OF 25 YEARS MUST ONLY WOULD MARRY AN UNMARRIED YOUNG WOMAN ? OR WHICH RELIGION OR ANY LAW ON EARTH BARS ANY MALE FROM INTERCASTE INTER-COMMUNITY MARRIAGE OR MARRYING A WIDOW OR AN OLD LADY..? Hope Ms Sharma finds good reasons to rest her concerns and case here.-
