Human Rights Association praises Wudeema’s Law
Rights Association to organise workshops for parents
Myself being a victim of such denial of access to my only child. my daughter, for more than a decade, I have raised this issue with the United Nations in the form of a letter. Countries like the UK are trying to bring in a new law, giving the right to children to enjoy proper relationship with both the parents. In UK, 3.8 million kids live without their fathers - children growing up particularly boys without a strong male influence. Be it daughters or sons the concept of shared parenting is missing in India, and has no legal backing. Both the parents should have a full and continuing role in a child's life, after they separate or even during the divorce proceedings. In India, marital laws are gender-biased in favour of women. It is high time India should have a National Commission for Family, instead of National Commission for Women as at present. To save marriages, the proceedings of family courts should be telecast live.
