Acid throwing in UK[edit]

Herve Reex should have a look here. There was recently one Acid attack in UK. Read:-

And not to forget Katie Piper's Incident. OccultZone (talk) 08:19, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

1500 total? But same source also include, 1000 in India, 300+ In Pakistan, 105+ in UK, 492 in Bangladesh. Contradicting the total stats. So it was removed. OccultZone (talk) 20:48, 28 January 2014 (UTC)
no, ASTI state 1000 total which includes unreported. And 105 UK is not acid attacks, read the citation.Herve Reex (talk) 02:30, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
1500 are "unreported", while they include 492 from Bangladesh, 300 from Pakistan. Then 1000 from India. How it makes up 1500? The stat is meaningless. Also BBC's link can lead you to copyright issues. Neither BBC is credible, because a lot of times they copy from here.

There are 600-700 attacks in Bangladesh, by other estimate. [1] You know about these acid attacks? Hong Kong acid attacks, from Hong Kong, In Iran, UK, they have took place as well. Include Russia, Afghanistan. Maybe we can simply from it from lead. OccultZone (talk) 10:13, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

Violence against men[edit]

There is nothing I can see in the article that says men are targeted because of their sex/gender. Because of this, I have removed the Category:Violence against men and the template. EvergreenFir (talk) Please {{re}} 22:40, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
