Estranged fathers demand better access to their children

HYDERABAD: Demanding a change in the existing legal provisions which control a divorced father's engagements with his children and to increase the frequency and quality of these interactions, Children's Rights Initiative for Shared Parenting (CRISP) began a four-day hunger strike at Dharna Chowk, Indira Park on Sunday.

The NGO aims to highlight the plight of estranged fathers in their effort to reconnect with their children. It also advocates the removal of the gender bias in the divorce laws to bring back qualitative parental engagement with their children.

Shah Ali, a CRISP activist participating in the hunger strike, said that in any divorce, children are the worst sufferers as they harbour the feelings of guilt, and the effects of parental alienation and resulting trauma can be long-lasting.

He says that only shared parenting can heal these children's emotional scars.
