  1. How quickly men are blamed for such acts of violence. No one knows for certain that there perpetrator was actually a man. Domestic problems arise when women cannot get along with each other. The old rivalry of the wife not getting along with the mother and sisters of her husband is an established fact. They find ways to settle the score and acid throwing is just one of the many ways of doing it.

  2. Domestic problems arise when an angry and hot tempered husband threw acid on his wife he vowed to love and protect. No matter what caused him to become angry, it is NEVER ok to hurt others. That is the established fact. You missed the whole point.
