Today, I plan to write about ‘Acid violence’ and you know- It has been spreading nowadays in our society in an epidemic form. No language is enough to condemn such criminal act. Throwing nitric acid to the human body is the most heinous of all crimes in society. It is done out of bad feeling or bad blood. The misguided young men sometimes, being disappointed in love affairs with a young girl, commit this heinous activity. As a result of acid violence the victim’s face, body and hands and legs turn into ugly and terrible shape. In utmost pains and troubles, the victims continue to drag an unhappy existence. It is that a pity that flower-like blooming girl meets a miserable end. The criminal after this incident flees away from the scene. The law enforcing authority cannot do anything to stop this crime. Some NGOs and human rights organizations come forward with helping hands for the treatment and rehabilitation of these unfortunate victims.
Recently government has enacted law for giving capital punishment for these criminals. Some capital punishment has also been awarded recently. This drastic action of the Govt. may curb this inhuman crime to a great extent in future.
Deterioration of human values among the young generation is the cause of this crime. More programmes on human values and morality should be included in the syllabuses of school, college and university to mould the characters of young generation.
