Rehabilitation of Acid Attack Victims

  1. Introduction

India is a society where the male is greatly revered. Therefore adult females who ever counts as a marginalized subdivision of the society gets a really small regard and standing in this state. To stamp down or to suppress the weaker subdivision ( i.e adult females ) of the society offense against adult females is normal.

Womans are the easiest for an person which can be easy targeted. In my research I have focused on one of the violent offense which comes under the hatred offense and can be easy Acid force is a peculiarly barbarous and detrimental signifier of violent offense in India where acid is thrown in people’s faces. The overpowering bulk of the victims are adult females. The victims are attacked for many grounds. In some instances it is because a immature miss or adult females has spurned the sexual progresss of a male or either she or her parents have rejected a proposal of matrimony. Recently, nevertheless, there have been acerb onslaughts on kids, older adult females and besides work forces. These onslaughts are frequently the consequence of household and land difference, dowry demands or a desire for retaliation. This hatred offense has become flagitious in nature and because of this offense against adult females in India has come up to a greater extent.

Acid throwing on the face and organic structure of another individual to do or bring forth dangerous hurts is a barbarian act of retribution. Form the past few old ages ; it has been observed that there is rise in both urban and rural countries of India. The culprits are largely work forces and stripling male childs. The victims are females and largely immature misss.

Acid throwing is a really barbarous signifier of force. Acid is a caustic substance that can eat metal. Once in contact with tegument, acerb causes skin tissue to run, exposing the castanetss underneath or taking to the loss of oculus ( s ) , ear, nose and or irreparable harm to custodies or articulations. Permanent physical disfiguration is ineluctable and serious disablement is frequent. The legal usage of acid is largely industrial but it is easy available in the market. Although there are rigorous boundations in merchandising of the acid and there is a proper control over it even though acid is easy available in the market. Acid Burnss differ from fire Burnss in its speed and its consequence on castanetss. Acid hurts are normally much deeper and acerb effects the tegument tissues faster than fire. Furthermore, fire Burnss are impacting the tissues and soft castanetss, non the difficult castanetss, while acid is aggressive plenty to do lasting harm even to difficult castanetss.

For the last few old ages, it has been on the rise in both urban and rural countries of India. Cheap and easy handiness of acids makes it the most effectual arm for adult male to utilize against misss ‘ or immature adult females for retaliation and is one of the utmost signifiers of repression and misdemeanor of adult females ‘s right.
