Acid attacks on women are considered to be the nastiest, obnoxious and heinous kind of violence committed on the weaker sex. It is the thoughtful and pre-mediated use of acid on another human being for no fault on her part. Reasons could be easy accessibility of acid, male-dominating and male-dictating society, antagonism, patriarchal society, scorned and disdained lovers, etc., to name a few. Cases on acid attacks are mounting, swelling and escalating like anything. The perpetrators do not realize the consequences of such menacing, ominous and looming attacks on innocent victims and throw acids on them, distorting their face, limbs and different parts of body permanently. It is high time now. Something stringent needs to be done to curb this evil in our society. Otherwise, it will be too late, and innocent creatures on this earth will continue to suffer for no fault of theirs.
