Acid vic­tims

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION -

SANA SA­MAD

Re­cently a man, his wife and two minor kids were acid at­tacked by un­known peo­ple. Af­ter the at­tack, their con­di­tions were de­te­ri­o­rat­ing and were shifted into the hospi­tal for the treat­ment. Po­lice has started search for the at­tack­ers; un­for­tu­nately they al­ways fail to ar­rest the at­tack­ers.

Due to this, acid throw­ing cases are not de­creas­ing but in­creas­ing on daily ba­sis. Last year, nearly 250 cases were recorded but none of the at­tacker was ar­rested and pun­ished. Mostly the women are the vic­tim of acid throw­ing and their lives be­come to­tally darker, as their faces are to­tally burnt. It is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of our lead­ers to cre­ate im­por­tant laws for the pro­tec­tion of women, who are suf­fer­ing from such ter­ri­fy­ing at­tacks.
