I weep for the loss suffered by these two young students. For trying to improve their lot in life, local nutjob fanatics doused them in corrosive acid.

AP acid attack: Victims’ dreams shattered

Three men who allegedly threw acid on two engineering college girls at Warangal in Andhra Pradesh have been killed in what the police claim to be an encounter.

But what about their victims, the two final year engineering students, who are battling on against huge odds?

One of the victims of the acid attack is undergoing treatment in a Secunderabad hospital.

“She is a very brave girl. She has a very positive attitude. That is one of the few things that could pull her through,” said Dr Srinagesh, duty doctor on one of the victims.

The medical report is bleak. It’s the spirit to put up a fight that will hopefully see the 21-year-old come out of the acute medical care ward of the hospital. The girl suffered 55 per cent third degree burns after being attacked with acid on Thursday evening.

The final year engineering student showed immense courage and refused to be cowed down, even when she was hounded and threatened with acid attack. She remained focused on getting her engineering degree and a job so that her dreams and her family’s dreams could come true.

“She has lost both her eyes. She is so young. She has a long life ahead. What will be her future, you tell me,” said K Devender, father of acid attack victim.

In another Hyderabad hospital, another 21-year-old who suffered 40 per cent burns in the same attack is recovering. She had an offer letter to join an IT major soon after graduating.

“She had so many dreams. She wanted to go abroad, pursue an MBA degree, get a good job. She was looking forward to a very bright future,” said Subashini, mother of acid attack victim.

While it does not do anything to restore the sight of the blinded woman, or undo the 3rd degree burns, at least justice was done upon the attackers. Some will no doubt claim that killing the attackers was too harsh, that they should have been jailed. To them I pose the question, “How is killing them harsh, when they have essentially ended the lives (as they should have been) of these two innocent students?”

      YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOUR IGNORANCE. BUT YOU HAVE NO SHAME THUS SAY WHAT YOU WANT AND INCREASE IN EVIL UNTIL DEATH COMES TO YOU. MAKE THE SCALE OF EVIL DEEDS HEAVY. SPEND YOUR LIFE INCURRING EVIL. THEN YOU WILL COME TO KNOW THE TRUTH. KEEP UP YOUR LIES AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU.

      YOU ARE 100% WRONG. THE QUR'AAN IS THE ONLY AUTHENTIC DIVINE REVELATION FROM ALLAAH ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH PROTECTED BY ALLAAH FROM CORRUPTION. BUT HEY KAFIRS WILL SAY ANYTHING TO DESTROY AND REJECT THE TRUTH…

    ummm, andhra pradesh is in India not Pakistan. the culprits were hindu and not muslim…. i am starting to think how many other stories on here have been just changed….. a bit like the koran quotes which are not even correctly transalted…. but hey, it gets the american fundamentalist minority going so why not….

    Why are you defending them? Where is your proof that they were Hindu? Geesh, why do you Islamist apologists keep digging yourselves deeper and deeper into the enemy's pit.

    btw, the Koran quotes are a direct translation, and that is a typical argument of Islamists. We're very well aware of what Islam teaches in the Koran and Mohammed's Hadith's. You don't have to speak Arabic to know what they teach.

      ALL OF YOU PEOPLE ON THIS SITE ARE WRONG…. THERE ARE 73 SECTS IN ISLAAM. 72 SECTS IN CHRISTIANITY AND 71 SECTS IN JUDAISM. YOU HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE QUR'AAN AND SUNNAH. JUDGE THE MUSLIMS ACCORDING TO QUR'AAN AND SUNNAH RATHER THAN JUDGING THE QUR'AAN AND SUNNAH ACCORDING TO THE BEHAVIOUR OF THE MUSLIMS. AND ALL OF YOU CAN CONTIINUE SPEAKING LIES AND SLANDER AGAINST ISLAAM BUT THAT WILL NOT CHANGE THE FACT THAT THE QUR'AAN IS THE FINAL REVELATION FROM ALLAAH AND THE ONLY RELIGION THAT WILL BE ACCEPTED BY HIM. ALLAAH SAYS, "WHOEVER SEEKS A RELIGION OTHER THAN ISLAAM IT WILL NEVER BE ACCEPTED OF HIM AND HE WILL BE ONE OF THE LOSERS." QUR'AAN 3:85. NO, YOU HAVE ABSOLUTEY NO KNOWEDGE OR UNDERSTANDING OF THE QUR'AAN AND SUNNAH. YOU RELY ON PROPAGANDA FROM YOUR MEDIA. .

      YOU CERTAINLY DO NEED TO SPEAK ARABIC TO CLEARLY UNDERSTAND THE DEEN RATHER THAN TALK CRAP ABOUT IT. SO SHUT YOUR MOUTH… GUTTER MOUTH UNGRATEFUL YOUNG MAN WHO IS FIGHTING GOD.

      IT IS THE FREEMASONS YOU SHOULD LOOK INTO WHO ARE THE ENEMIES OF ISLAAM. IF YOU WISH TO SPEND YOUR ENTIRE LIFE FIGHTING ISLAAM THEN KNOW: 1. YOU WILL NEVER WIN BECAUSE ALLAAH IS IN CONTROL OF THE AFFAIRS OF THIS WORLD, 2. YOU WILL DAMAGE YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM FROM THE RADIATION THAT IS EMITTED FROM YOUR COMPUTER AND 3. YOU WILL SEE THE TRUTH AT YOUR APPOINTED TIME OF DEATH. AS FOR KAL THEN YOU SHOULD QUESTION HIS CHARACTER BECAUSE HE LIVES IN THE SAFETY AND SECURITY TAX FREE MUSLIM COUNTRY YET HE CONDEMNS ISLAAM. HE IS A SELL OUT AND A COWARD BECAUSE IF HE SAID WHAT HE SAYS ON THIS SITE IN PUBLIC THEN HE WOULD BE ARRESTED PROSECUTED AND POSSIBLY HUNG. REMEMBER DEATH AND THE MEETING WITH YOUR LORD ALLAAH. VERILY THE RELIGION OF ISLAAM IS NOT A MOOT POINT. I DEFEND THE QUR'AAN AND SUNNAH NOT THE ACTIONS OF THOSE WHO MISUNDERSTAND IT
