An evil fluid, brought in use for severe mechanical cleaning over hardcore stained objects including floors and metals can permanently ruin and shred the soft tissues of human body.

This act of Vitriol-ism (throwing acid) was never considered as a violent assault until several youngsters among us are mercilessly sacrificed to the violent pangs of suffering Some completely lost their vision, others their sense organs and some are still striving hard to cope with their bloodless internal organs, which carry the tainted marks of the screeching sensation and tethered tissues.

I get terrorized at the thought of being disfigured with partially scalded face, because I do carry a common girl in me who can be a victim to any of this acid assault. So I have an urge to waken up the society we live in to express their concern over the ascending number of acid attacks. The policy to curb the sale of acid in order to prevent this obnoxious crime should also be enacted. Proper treatment, compensation and special care should be granted for the well being and rehabilitation of the sufferers.
The recent loss occurred to Mandeep Kaur and her father, has evoked some of the high political minds to pressurize our government to take strict action and entail charges of murder and violent assault on the insane criminals.
