Women being used as baby making machines

I wish to bring to your notice a new age crime against women. It is using women to bear babies and then alienating them from their children. In short women are being used as baby making machines

I gave birth to a female baby on July 16, 2015. I was allowed to stay with my baby only for a duration of 4.5 months. She was completely under my care and was exclusively breastfed during this time.

On the night of Dec1, 2015, with the help of few of his friends in my apartment complex my husband threw me out of the house without my baby and she was forcibly given formula feeds.

After this he only allowed me to meet her in our apartment complex of our park which was completely filled with mosquitoes and was not fit for a baby less than 6 months of age. Her breastfeeds were completely stopped by the ruthless behavior of my husband by this time.

I am an MBA from a premier Bschool in India and working in one of the major IT companies, still my husband has managed to procure fake medical reports saying I have Post pare-tum paranoid disorder by forcibly admitting me in hospital. He is making false claims that I will not be able to take care of my baby. I handle deals worth multi million dollars for my company and this would not at all be possible for a woman suffering from any kind of disorder

I have undergone a major surgery (Caesarean section) to birth my baby and I have not even seen her since June 2016 as my husband absconded with my baby after I filed a police complaint.

Separating her from me is a gross violation of human rights. Its neither fair to me or to my child.

The first hearing of our custody case was on September 15, 2016. My husband has still not filed a counter to the petition I filed and no enquiry has been held in my case so far. Though My husband and I are in the same city I have not even been given any interim order so far.

Though the mother is the primary guardian as per the Guardians and wards act till the child reaches the age of 5, the rendering of justice by courts is never timely and there is lot of confusion on a case to case basis.

My humble request is for the Prime Minister, the minister for women and child welfare, the Honorable chief justice of India and the Chief Justice of the Madras High court to look into this and help mothers separated from their children. Parental alienation is a hate crime and this has to be abolished.
