Make Love Not Scars in association with The Logical Indian and Ogilvy and Mather release its 4th video in the #EndAcidSale campaign that has brought about global awareness on acid attacks. The fourth video features Reshma singing a Christmas carol with a twist! While most girls Reshma’s age would ask for more materialistic things, Reshma urges her followers to gift her a signature. The signatures collected by Make Love Not Scars will then be filed along with the petition in the Supreme Court in January.  It is heartwarming to see an 18-year-old who has been through so much, tirelessly campaign for a cause that she believes in. You might remember Reshma from her previous beauty tips video’s that was widely shared all over the world. If you believe in Reshma’s cause and vision, this Christmas gift her your signature as a sign of solidarity. Every signature counts towards a more hopeful future.

Make Love Not Scars is filing a PIL in Supreme Court in January. this is our last month to get as many signatures and these signatures will be added to support the PIL.

 The kind of pain experienced as a result of an acid attack is unimaginable. Victims face traumatizing after-effects including, but not limited to, peeled skin, loss of eyesight and hearing, exposed bone and cartilage, fatal infections, loss of sensation, amputations, skin replacements and grafts and most of all, excruciating pain which lasts for years at an end.

Our Primary demand is to make the availability of acid to common man almost impossible, which includes following laws which needs to be strictly followed:

  • the requirement of collecting identification of documents from and maintaining a record of those purchasing acid;
  • sub-divisional magistrate (SDM) to check stocks of acid maintained by different sellers
  • fine of up to INR 50,000 for not following the rules
  • educational institutions, laboratories and other institutions required to use acid are required to report the same to the SDM and a person at such institutions is to be assigned the responsibility of monitoring the storage and use of acid
