A law made to save lives has taken many lives
In line with The Red Pill and the heartache and suffering that men throughout Australia, England and North America suffer, Martyrs of Marriage is a documentary film that documents the injustice that has been perpetrated on people because of misuse of section 498A of Indian Penal Code commonly known as the Anti Dowry law in India. A feature length, first person account of those who have suffered at the hands of abuse of this provision, the film delves deep into the problem, the reasons behind it and the repercussions of the same. The film intends to wake up the society to the fact that MEN can be victims too in marital relationships and that the laws that have been made for protection of women have been and are being misused to harass men, women and their families too.
For long, people have believed that it is only women who suffer or give up their lives because of harassment by her in-laws. “Martyrs of Marriage” throws light on the other side of this belief and captures stories of men who were harassed within a Marriage and driven to suicide because of threats and torture. The film intends to wake up the society to the fact that “men” can be victims too in marital relationships and that the laws that have been made for protection of women have been widely misused.
The film has been produced by Deepika Narayan Bhardwaj, an Independent Journalist and a Documentary Filmmaker from India. Martyrs of Marriage is her first independent documentary feature which she has researched, scripted, produced and directed.
