"An eye for an eye,a tooth for a tooth !"


IRAN'S supreme court has upheld a sentence of blinding with acid for a man who blinded his lover's husband, under the Islamic "eye-for-an-eye" justice code, a government daily said today.

The convict, named only as Mojtaba, 25, threw acid in the face of Alireza, 25, a taxi driver in Iran's clerical hub city of Qom, after an "illicit affair" with the victim's wife, Mojdeh, also 25, said the newspaper Iran.

The supreme court has upheld a lower court ruling that Mojtaba be blinded with drops of acid, in line with Islamic justice, which allows for "qisas," or eye-for-an-eye retribution, in cases of violent crime, it said.

Qom prosecutor Mostafa Barzegar Ganji said the victim had used his right to qisas. "We have asked for forensic specialists to oversee the blinding of the convict," he said, quoted in Iran.

Several acid attacks have been reported in Iran.

I dunno. This circle of violence - and I guess blinding in retribution is violence - should really come to an end.

From the article:

In February 2009, Majid Movahedi was sentenced to be blinded in both eyes for having hurled acid in the face of a university classmate, Ameneh Bahrami, who refused a marriage proposal.
Bet she don't turn the NEXT dude down!;)
But is this blinding necessary? Of course not. All you end up with is a person dependent upon the government of Iran (think of that) or relatives, and almost certainly never able to fend for himself.

I'm guessing that's the punishment.

The government will never give him a dime, he may get some support from relatives but will likely become a beggar.

Both he and Iran, obviously a much different world than our own.

Indeed. 10th century barbarians. The less we have to deal with them, the better. Although I guess once they get ICBMs we won't have a choice.

What ever happened to the missile defense shield that I thought was a really good idea?

Yeah, a well organized and planned self-defense is religiously and personally offensive to Muslim Jihad. We can't have that.
