Kolkata – Nov 07-2017 Violence on Women : This nefarious activity – to enforce upon women several kinds of Cruelty of all types – these days, often indulged upon by few or some men, also women included – and / or surely abetted by some women, as found in many such cases – to fulfil or satisfy their most odd and criminal-like beliefs and shoddy interests – most of these occurrences arising out of lack of education – is a BIG BLOT on the face of our so called civilised and literate Society.
One of the Extreme Types of Violence on Women is : ACID ATTACKS. Still many of us fail to gauge the mental degradation of those human beings who commit such heinous crime – which deface a teen-aged girl or a woman of almost all age-groups. The reasons which prompt ‘acid attacks’ vary from ‘failed’ love, love ‘obstructed’, (extreme) differences in opinions and disputes as regards sharing and divisions of money, properties of all sorts.
These days – several and several such cases of ‘acid attacks’ are taking place almost at regular intervals. Irrespective of cities, towns, semi-urban / semi-rural areas. almost everywhere. Irrespective of caste, creed etc. But, it may be mentioned – major share of incidents happen with poor and not-so-rich families. Of course – we may not be correct.
Social Bodies, Police Forces across many States of India – have been Trying much to mitigate this singularly Cruel and very much Inhuman criminal act. Lower Courts, High Courts also Supreme Court, the highest court of our land have come out with many many Guidelines & Strictures – to put a ‘stop’ to this social evil. But we doubt – the message (to come to one’s senses) has Not reached the intended ‘ears’. Also – it must be pointed out – major Implementation of the Guidelines from even hon’ble Supreme Court – is yet to take place. This is the Real Tragedy !
