Bangalore, Jan 20 : Victims of misuse of anti-dowry law and Section 498A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), held a protest demonstration here today, and demanded the setting up of the Welfare Ministry for men.

Members of the Save Indian Family Foundation held the demonstration at the M G Road in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statue.

They held placards and demanded redrafting of domestic violence laws and making gender issues neutral. They also demanded a commission to address men's issues.

"Its not just men, but also women of their family, who are victim of the misuse of anti-dowry laws. In every 10 minutes a husband commits suicide in India, but why that is not considered as domestic violence?" asked Uma Challa, a non resident Indian.
