Implementation of shared parenting as a rule in divorce, separation cases sought
BANGALORE: Children's Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting, (CRISP), an NGO, is organising a “National Fathers Day Rally” on June 19 near Mahatma Gandhi statue on Mahatma Gandhi Road demanding implementation of shared parenting as a rule in divorce and separation cases, basic right of children to access both biological parents.
CRISP president Kumar V. Jahgirdhar told presspersons here on Wednesday that child rights were as important as women's rights and children need love and affection of both parents.
Jayanth T.K., counsellor, said: “Shared parenting should be implemented in divorce and separation cases. This will ensure that child is not deprived of the love and affection of both parents.”
Roshni Mathan, women's rights activist, said that children need both parents. Mr. Anil Kumar president of Save Indian Family, an NGO, said that anybody misusing the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act should be punished.
