An acid-attack victim Reshma smiles, pouts and gives you the step-by-step makeup tutorial to get the perfect red lips. It’s like any other beauty tutorial until her smile fades out after a pause. And then gives her most important tip. She says – You’ll find red lipstick in market just like concentrated acid’ and requests everyone watching the video to help her #EndAcidSale.

Made by an NGO called Make Love Not Scars, the video puts across its message in a direct and powerful way.

Reshma was just a school student when she was attacked by her brother-in-law and two other men at a railway station. The fact that her attackers are still roaming freely says a lot about our legal system. In fact it wasn’t before 2013 that a law to punish acid attack victims came into existence.

Supreme Court in 2013 had banned the open sale of acid all over India, but it is still being sold openly in Ghaziabad, UP. Everyday at least 1 acid attack happens. According to Acid Survivors Foundation India, the number of acid violence cases could range anything from 100 to 500 every year.

It was only in 2013, that section 326 A that lays down punishment for acid throwing (minimum imprisonment of 10 years and can extend up to life imprisonment with fine) was enacted in India.

Reshma had earlier starred in a video by Blush where she got a beauty makeover a la Katrina Kaif.
