AP: A court in Iran has sentenced a man who blinded a woman with acid also to be blinded with acid under the country’s Islamic law.
Thursday’s reports in several newspapers, including the Kargozaran, say 27-year-old Majid confessed to attacking Ameneh Bahrami in 2004 to dissuade anyone from marrying the woman he loved.
Wednesday’s ruling was issued based on the Islamic law system of “qisas,” or eye for an eye retribution.
The reports say Ameneh asked the court to sentence Majid, who was only identified by his first name, to be blinded by acid to prevent similar attacks on other women.
Majid is allowed to appeal the verdict. Source
Here’s foto of Ameneh Bahrami, this innocent girl. Before and after Acid attack. I feel so sad for her. But she is a heroine for She really fought for her right. As i read, the attacker guy in the court was so rude and completely happy and calm for his crime. He could not expect to be issued as severe.
Acid attack is a big issue in the Middle East. I still dont know what happened to another girl that i had written an article about her HERE. However It’s the first time that they really do something serious in the case of Acid Attack.
What do you think about punishment for such cases that a girl will lose her entire life forever? Is this punishment enough? Or cruel?
Can severe punishments stop these cruel men before causing any harm for girls?
