Acid throwing assaults have been mainly carried out against women and are usually motivated by revenge. But a series of attacks against men in Pakistan's traditionally patriarchal society has baffled doctors and human rights campaigners.


Sheikh Mohammad Noman said his wife threw acid over him in a revenge attack when he refused to give her a divorce after she left him for her ex-husband.

He told the network: 'She said, "I've got something for you, please forgive me". As soon as I turned around shew threw acid on me.

'The pain of the acid is still there, but my heart aches too because I loved her and this is what she give to me in return.'

Noman's wife is to face charges relating to the attack next year.

Daily Mail


A long and slow recovery: Sheikh Mohammad Noman is examined by a doctor


The act of acid throwing - also known as vitriolage - is a revenge attack carried out to deliberately injure or disfigure victims.

Often, the assaults are carried out because the victim has, in some way, 'dishonoured' the attacker.

The attacks are most common in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Cambodia, Bangladesh, India and other nearby countries.

It is thought that at least 1,500 people in 20 countries are attacked in this way every year, 80 per cent of whom are women.

Daily Mail


Generally the narrative given to acid attacks is that they are carried out on wives/girlfriends by men in cultures such as Pakistan, Afghanistan & Bangladesh due to marital/love disputes.

Interestingly, this website shows that 31% of acid attack victims in 2011 were men or boys, while the most common motivation for an attack wasn't love or marriage but rather disputes about property or money.

It's a very cruel assault to do to someone. With the right materials anyone can do it and it has had so much media attention recently.

Yeah this is quite scary though, you don't know if someone walking by you on the street might just throw acid in your face, I remember a very attractive woman in Australia last year was completely disfigured in a random attack.

I don't condone this type of violence, but I doubt the victim was innocent.
The way they treat women over there is insane.

predominantly Islamic nation, women have a docile role..

makes sense a woman could more easily buy acid (lab use) than a gun (something associate with masculine duty)

i guess??

acid can do more damage than gun, oftentimes.

Not sure why the doctors and officials are confused. It's called retaliation. I you treat someone (or a group of people) like horse turds for long enough, eventually they have enough or it gets too much and they fight fire with fire - or in this case acid with acid.

I wonder if the guy had tossed acid on the girl, if he would have gotten a pat on the back from his buddies and that would have been the end of it??

Retaliation?

What ridiculous feminists dogma.

If a man throws acid over a women, that's the man's fault but if a women throws acid over a man, that's also the man's fault?

Under this feminist paradigm, would I be correct in stating that men are guilty of everything and women can do no wrong?

In this case, the women who was refused a divorce, I feel like the guy probably was not nice to her. He was probably a controlling idiot. Now hes acting like an innocent victim because he was attacked, but he probably put her through some things. Plus we all know women are generally not treated as equals to men in those countries.

You make a fair point but if a man was refused a divorce by his wife, would feminists be arguing that he was then justified to throw acid in her face?

I have no clue what a feminist would think about it, you would have to ask one.

Im just reading into the situation, what kind of man would refuse his wife a divorce? Probably not a guy that wants whats best for her.

This is no mystery whatsoever if you are aware of the acid-throwing cultures around the world. This has been going on for a very, very long time and it takes the number one spot together with stoning, as a (legal) punishment in those countries.

I think the increase in woman doing it to men is because they are conditioned into believing it is a proper punishment for a disobeying spouse. Now, the thing that i am concerned about is that it is happening more and more in the west, not only among immigrants but also western people. Acidic substances are available pretty much everywhere and you don't need strength or skill to throw it at someone. It's horrible.

two separate issues- a man who values his family unit perhaps

Second issue

Not granting divorce does not in anyway excuse the barbaric act of throwing acid in someone's face.

It is wrong to throw acid in anyones face, but it is quite amazing how some wish to excuse it on the fact that the victim has male genitalia

There appears to be a double standard in operation.

Two posters who we can only presume are female, appear to argue that a wife is justifed, to a greater or lesser degree, throwing acid over her husband if he 'isn't nice' to her or refuses her a divorce.

Yet it is unlikely in the extreme that either of these posters would suggest that a husband is justified in throwing acid over a wife in any circumstances.

wow, i'm having a hard time comprehending this sense of confusion, am i the only one ??

why ?? why would this baffle anyone ? does it baffle you ?

i don't condone it but i certainly correlate a revenge motive on both sides.
when people resort to violence, they find ways to accomplish it ... why is this baffling ??

later in the OP, property and money are mentioned but since when are either motive for such violence, seriously ??
ppl usually steal or destroy money & property, not disfigure someone over it.
there HAS to be more to the story.

Horrible thing to do to another person, and the comments that the man must have done something to deserve it are horrible also, refusing to get a divorce are hardly grounds for disfiguring someone for life with acid, doesn't matter what genitalia you have.

I think it might be a sign of the times that those women are actually starting to fight back.

Terrible thing to do though, throwing acid is an awfully extreme way to punish someone. Where do they get acid for a start?

You'd think a kick in the balls would suffice. Most men wouldn't want a repeat, so I've heard.
