In­dian Men Must Grow Up

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page -

The Edit, ‘Cus­tom­ary Law Must Bend to Ba­sic Rights’ (Feb 7), re­veals well-es­tab­lished male chauvinism and parochial at­ti­tudes dom­i­nated by mob cul­ture. It re­minds us of the ‘Triple Ta­laq’ prac­tice based on re­li­gious per­sonal laws. Both the cases re­veal that the men in the coun­try are still not pro­gres­sive enough. Re­li­gious bias, prej­u­dices and big­otry among men are play­ing a cru­cial role against the in­ter­est of half the coun­try’s pop­u­la­tion. Value-based ed­u­ca­tion is im­por­tant to achieve equal­ity for women in the coun­try.
