Keep, concubine? Senior lawyer says SC's usage anti-women

 Indra Jaising is a Fascist Feminazi Witch, she is one of the leaders of the trash bag radicals.  
This radical Feminazi Witch is using government funds, (Peoples Tax money) and facilities, to spread false views against men and biased support for women at any cost.  
Is it o.k to arrest 1000's of men and their families for Domestic Violence act, 498a and
false rape?
Is it o.k for to make gender biased laws for women on Sexual harassment, maintenance, and divorce etc? 

Society needs to wake up fast against these atrocities, and make Family laws gender neutral and fair, or sooner or later some families will get caught in this mess. These biased laws impact Men and Women in adverse ways.

Senior government lawyer Indira Jaisingh created quite a flutter in the Supreme Court on Friday by strongly objecting to the use of the word "keep" in a judgement on the right of maintenance for women in live-in relationships. 

An angry Additional Solicitor General, Indira Jaising, told a Bench of Justices Markandey Katju and T S Thakur that the word used in the judgement was highly objectionable and needed to be expunged. 

"How can the Supreme Court of India use the word 'kept' in the 21st century against a woman. Can a woman say that she has kept a man?" she asked. 

She told a stunned court: "I would like to move an application to get the remarks expunged. I do not want to appear before this court, I would like to withdraw myself." 

Jaising wondered how the highest court of the country could use such an expression against a woman.
At this juncture, Justice Katju, who was heading the Bench, told the ASG to confine herself to the case before the court.

However, Justice Thakur intervened and asked her whether the expression 'concubine' would have been more appropriate than the word 'keep'. 

To this, the ASG submitted that her objection was mainly to the word 'keep' in the judgement delivered yesterday by the Bench. 

Jaising was involved in the framing the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.
In an important verdict, the Supreme Court had on Thursday held that a woman in a live-in relationship is not entitled to maintenance unless she fulfills certain parameters. It had also observed that merely spending weekends together or a one-night stand would not make it a domestic relationship. 

The Bench had said that in order to get maintenance, a woman, even if not married, has to fulfill the following four requirements: 

(1) The couple must hold themselves out to society as being akin to spouses, (2) they must be of legal age to marry, (3) they must be otherwise qualified to enter into a legal marriage including being unmarried, (4) they must have voluntarily cohabited and held themselves out to the world as being akin to spouses for a significant period of time. 

"In our opinion, not all live-in relationships will amount to a relationship in the nature of marriage to get the benefit of the Act of 2005 (Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act). To get such benefits the conditions mentioned by us above must be satisfied and this has to be proved by evidence. 

"If a man has a 'keep' whom he maintains financially and uses mainly for sexual purpose and or as a servant, it would not in our opinion be a relationship in the nature of marriage," the court had said. 

The apex court had passed the judgement while setting aside the concurrent orders passed by a matrimonial court and the Madras High Court awarding Rs 500 maintenance to D Patchaiammal who claimed to have married the appellant D Velusamy.
