A protest (dharna) was organised by Centre for Men’s Rights in Bangalore, India on 26th May against Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2010 which introduces Irretrievable Breakdown of Marriage (IrBM) as a valid ground for divorce. Similar protests have been organised in other cities like Mumbai and Pune.

Centre for Men’s Rights (http://menrights.org) aims to promote men’s welfare and their human rights and prevent abuse of men’s rights. We aim to reduce suicide rate of men and create more acceptability and choices for men in society.
We have strongly condemned approval by union cabinet recently to changes in Hindu Marriage Act under “Marriage Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2010”.
