A Marriage Bill is attempting to unleash a new kind of MISANDRY. It proposes to discriminate men from the Below Poverty Line.
As per a news report from The Economic Times, The Marriages (Compulsory Registration and Prevention of Wasteful Expenditure Bill, 2016 proposes the below:
“If any family intends to spend more than Rs 5 lakh towards expenditure on marriage, such family shall declare the amount proposed to be spent in advance to the appropriate government and contribute 10 per cent of such amount in a welfare fund which shall be established by the appropriate government to assist the poor and Below Poverty Line families for the marriage of their daughters”.
If this bill is passed, even the very poor – who aren’t able to make ends meet in their daily lives and who are completely uncertain whether they would get the next meal in their life or probably they will survive the next year – will be no more be looked as “poor” or “those belonging to BPL category”. Rather they will be looked at as “BPL woman” and “BPL men”.
