Study on Men’s Health and Suicide by Men addresses the following questions: Why do men commit suicide? How men are harassed? How legal terrorism is impacting their health? How do they suffer in silence? Why do they suffer in silence? How stressful life they lead, when they face abuse and humiliation at the hands of their beloveds. Most of the statistics collected demonstrate that there is a dearth of research on men’s mental health or overall health, when someone is reported to be depressed due to marital distress or a stressful relationship, there is no government body or agency for men in distress to consult with, no funding earmarked to encourage any organization (governmental or non-governmental) to work for men’s health issues or address their socio-economic problems or to support men in distress.
Worldwide around 800,000 people die due to suicide yearly, that’s one person every 40 seconds. Of these 1,39,123 (18%) are residents of India. 70% of suicides are by men, and is mostly due to depression because of marital discord, which is responsible for their death. The overall male to female ratio of suicide victims for the year 2019 was 70.2: 29.8, which is more as compared to the year 2018 (68.5: 31.5). Globally, the suicide rate for men is twice than of women, that’s 13.9 per 100,000 for men and 6.3 per 100,000 for women
In India, the marital status of suicide victims is observed at 66.7% (92,757 out of 1,39,123) of the suicide victims were married, which shows there is a problem with their marriage and family. As per NCRB 2019 reports, there are two major causes of suicides i.e., ‘Family Problems’ and ‘Illness’. They also reported that Family problems and related issues were behind 32.4 percent of suicides, marriage related problems (5.5%), 70.2 were male and 29.8 females for every 100 suicide deaths. The NCRB collects national-level data from various sources. Almost 68.4 per cent of male victims were married.
NCRB report reveals that family issues, love affairs, drug abuse, mental illness appear as the top cause of suicide among the youth. According to the report, among people aged above 18 and below 45, family problems were the biggest reported cause of suicide. More importantly, the incidence of suicide due to family problems and mental illness is quite high in males but government of India strongly deny and ignore all these issues men face because of strong influence of women organizations, WCD / NCW who has vested interest.
Below statistics are collected from NCRB, see it to believe it. It’s always 2 times more for men than women, that shows how much stress these married men face.
|Married Men||Married Women|
The above cruelty against men happens only because of Women ministry / organizations lobby and control over Government, judiciary and Police.
Married Men the forgotten gender in India. There are NCRB statistics of more than 50,000 married men committing suicide every year. There are news reports of men’s suicide due to cruelty & harassment from their wives. There are news reports of men being murdered in large numbers. Yet, there is no Ministry for men, there are no laws for men and his family. All because the Men who are in power, forget their own gender and are busy appeasing women under the influence of Women originations for Vote Bank or other vested interests. Unless these Women organizations along with WCD/NCW who promote LEGAL TERRORISM in the name of women empowerment are made responsible for these crimes, and are stopped from defending these criminals and murderers, nothing will change. Government should take stand and amend all age old and gender biased laws to stop this genocide of men.
