Acid Attack Punishment in Pakistan

By Noor Mani — Updated on 02/05/2023

Acid is one of cheap and easily available weapon which is used openly to attack. According to Chief Justice Khosa Burning with acid is sever crime than murder. According to Dawn Newspaper, Criminal Javed Iqbal appealed Top court to cancel his punishment. In fact acid is readily available weapon which is also low in cost but has sever imprints on victim and society then bullets have. Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa claims that burning some with acid is severe than killing.


Acid attacks are worst crimes which has two worse effects on mankind. On one hand they demolish physical appearance of the victim. On the other hand the victim remain in psychological state for rest of the life. This crime is result of several social evils. It can be due to male dominance, intolerance, jealousy, women being sub ordinate and narrow mindset.

One of the main driving forces of acid attacks is that these acids are easily accessible to anyone. No documentation or regulatory framework is in place for proper handling of the acids. It must not be accessible to anyone without industrial requirements.

Acids are not only cheap but are easily available to anyone without any check and balance. Buying acid is so open that it need no documentary proof, handling guidance and other law regarding effective usage of acids. It should not be available to anyone until unless he has prescribed or to be used in the industry.
The acid is cheaper than bullets but has an even greater impact on the life of the victim. Indeed acids are cheaper than bullets but has inerasable effects on victim and family. The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday refused to listen and forgive plea of criminal of acid attack. Moreover, he announced that he is not legible for any sort of mercy. The criminal claimed that his victim has forgiven him in this regard. He received punishment in regard of throwing acid on woman.


Chief Justice of Pakistan has dismissed the plea saying that acid attack offenders don’t deserve any clemency. The judge also said that the acid attack victim may well forgive an acid attack suspect but the law can’t forgive him.

Chief justice rejected to give forgiveness. He claims that he is sure that woman has given forgiveness due to some pressure and this forgiveness is under some force. So such criminal should not be forgiven. He should be a symbol of terror for others.
