    Court orders Iranian man blinded

    Court orders Iranian man blinded



    A court in Iran has ruled that a man who blinded a woman with acid after she spurned his marriage proposals will also be blinded with acid.

    The ruling was reported in Iranian newspapers on Thursday.

    The punishment is legal under the Islamic Sharia code of qias or equivalence, which allows retribution for violent crimes.

    The court also ordered the attacker, 27-year-old Majid Movahedi, to pay compensation to the victim.

    The acid attack took place in 2004. The victim, Ameneh Bahrami, went to Spain for surgery to reconstruct her face but efforts to restore her sight failed.

    The ruling was a response to her plea to the court in the Iranian capital Tehran for retribution.

    "Ever since I was subject to acid being thrown on my face, I have a constant feeling of being in danger," she told the court.

    Ms Bahrami also said that Movahedi had also threatened to kill her.

    An Islamic law? ....And one which I agree with, fair play.

    Any idea how that sounds in Farsi? I hear it often in the isaan dialect but with a kwai replacing the camel.

    Not gunna be much good to her being blind is he......???????????

    My initial response to the eye for an eye sentence was positive but I believe he should be locked up and made to work and to pay for her upkeep for the rest of his life.

    Blinding him is no use to her!

    Think this is OK. She may have been accused of soliciting sex however.

    See, this is the way to deter criminals.

    Sharia should replace the PC-laws which reward the wrong-doers in the West. It also inspires fear of god, badly needed in the socialist Euro-societies lacking morals.

    I heard prosecution was pushing for execution, and the defendant was plea bargaining for an hour-long waterboarding session. They split the difference with the acid option.

    I agree with some parts of islam and islamic law, one upside that there aren't many three-time thieves, but not the way it works in practise, for example, kids having limbs amputated for stealing bread or women stoned for adultery or being raped, while terrorists get to pump prime meat for the rest of eternity.

    I thought water-boarding is an "interrogation technique" used by the US on Muslims?

    ^^ On Muslims? Is it exclusively for use on Muzzies? Whadda you think they're (you're) special?

    What a narrow view. Are you suggesting the only baddies the US interrogates are Muslims? Get over yourself, sTroller.

    There are plenty of nice Columbians, Peruvians, Mexicans and Europeans that stand for a good washing down -- none Muslim -- praise be to god.

    No need to get your pink embroidered panties in a twist, redneck.
    I was just responding to your moronic 'joke' with an equally 'funny' question. Curious you should take exception to this - or maybe not, apparently it is ok to denigrate anything and their dog, but not your precious US or its sacred military.
    LOL

    While I loathe Muslims and Islamic law, I actually can't disagree with this application of sharia. Frankly if they were ALL blind, they might be much easier to handle and less of a threat to western civilization.

    That's been painfully obvious.
