The recent case where the wife of a well known Pakistani male singer in Bollywood threw out the husband and his ailing parents put his house reflects the changing attitude of women in India. The wife herself a dubai based industrialist also claimed her total right to all the five residences which the husband had gifted to her in better times. The father of the husband is critically ill with pancreatic cancer and is fighting for his life in a Mumbai hospital while his mother is ailing from old age and disease . This wife predictably cited the most commonly used reason of Mentally and Physical harassment as the reason for throwing out her husband and his critically ill parents . The National Commission for women who goes all out to help women in need predictably is mum and the WCD ministry which is now busy filling pubs in Bangalore city has turned a blind eye to this ghastly incident .
This story is now being repeated in most of the households in India. The women of India have really come a long way in the last 100 years. From the days when Indian wives used to follow their husbands into the pyre to make the ultimate sacrifice to the modern times where Indian wives falsely implicate entire families in the name of false dowry harassment and domestic violence for extorting money , the Indian women have truly come a long way . The major factors which aid in this brutal behavior of women is the biased and one sided laws that the government of India has that helps cruel women like these justify and get away with their brutal behavior . The Media which is supposed to act as the agency for truth contorts the facts and figures and paints a bleak picture of women in India . The fact that more than 57000 men commit suicide every year is brushed under the carpet while a single dowry death gets all the attention . The Government presents false and baseless ststistics to increase the true number of suffering women to get a large pie of the development funds that are allocated by the multinational aid agencies . More than 60 years have passed since independence and the government still does not have a ministry for the welfare of women while we even have a ministry for the welfare of animals . It is high time the government woke up from this apathy and see the true face of modern Indian women , and while there is little that it can do to change their brutal behavior it can certainly curb the abuse that they cause by amending the one sided laws to make then unbiased and gender neutral .
Musician Adnan Sami’s domestic travails have reached a flashpoint. His estranged wife Sabah, who stays in the same house, has filed for divorce complaining that he plays his “music too loud”.
Confirming this dramatic development in his domestic drama, Adnan told said: “Sabah’s lawyers had sent me the papers. Since then I’ve been in deep consultation with my lawyers. Yes, she has asked for a divorce and also the house which we now share in separate wings.
“She has accused me in her divorce papers, among other things, of playing my music too loud. Very frankly, I can only say all the best to Sabah. No matter what happens I will always wish her all the best in life.”
What Adnan resents is the time his wife chose to bring out all her grievances against him.
“Quite honestly her timing sucks. My father is very seriously ill. In fact, last night he slipped and fell in the bathroom. Nice timing, no? Just when my life and my marriage has also slipped out of my hands.”
Adnan claims his wife has asked for his parents to be also evicted from the disputed house that the couple occupies.
But Adnan is determined to fight it out.
“This house belongs to me, my parents and my son. I’m willing to give up the marriage, but I’ll be damned if I give up our home. I’m a lawyer and I’ve hired the best available legal talent to fight my case. Fortunately, this country has the best legal minds in the world. And I’ve full faith in the Indian judicial system,” said Adnan.
A non-cognisable offence was registered against Adnan at the Oshiwara police station last week after Sabah accused him of “mental and physical torture”. The Pakistani singer was then summoned to the police station and warned against misbehaving with his wife in future.
