DEATH SENTENCE FOR ACID ATTACKS
This petition had 361 supporters
Acid attacks are the most vicious of all crimes as they leave the person, usually young girls, scarred for life. It is an attempt to erase the face and hence the personality of the victim. The victim suffers lifelong. It is much worse than murder. Throwing acid on people is a crime of the category of 'rarest of the rare' or perhaps I should say 'the most vicious of the vicious' as the victim becomes a living wreck. An acid attack victim, unlike a murder victim does not die, but continues to live a life of enormous misery and untold suffering, of being forced to undergo numerous restorative surgeries, of being forced to stop living their normal life, of many victims being unable to even eat or drink properly. Of having their faces erased and hence losing their personality.
Nothing serious is being done to address this problem. The Parliament should pass a law for death sentence for offenders to ensure that such crimes do not take place. The crime is unrelated to any Political or Social group and is purely a law and order matter. Strict action must be taken against offenders and access to acid must be strictly controlled.
We, the people find that the Government of India is not serious about tackling crime against women and men. Action against such a heinous crime should have instantly received the support of all MP's from all sections of society and across all political parties, however this has not happened. What is preventing the honorable MP's from taking action against such crimes?
