What will dripping acid into the man's eyes do? Will it give the woman her eye back? I just do not see the point here.


After she's done neither will he.

from the article i read he didnt pour acid in this womans eyes.. he threw acid on her face like throwing a cup of water on someone.. she grabbed her face from the burning and also got scars down her fingers and hands..

i have no compashion for the accused. if the justice system says kill him then kill him. if it says 20 years in prison then let him serve his term.. the difference in my arguement is that a justice system has to be better than the mob mentality and criminals it punish's or that system can quickly become a criminal itself.

We are always hearing how women have no rights in islam yet in Iran here is a great example of equal rights for a woman.I feel that this is a great punishment for him-haven't you wishy washy liberals learnt that everything has gone to f*** since we started this soft liberal approach.I personally would take redemption if it had been offered to me in the UK.I was attacked by three career scumbags during a home invasion,all armed with knifes and holding me down as one tried to cut my throat.I to this day don't know how i managed to summon the strength to wriggly about enough to stop them.The police charged them with 'Breach Of The Peace'.One got 18 months,one 12 months & the third a drug rehabilitation order,pathetic.If I ever bump into these scumbags i will have my own brand of redemption!Has this stopped the scumbags from being scumbags-no,they are out of prison now with new found scummy mates to offend again on multiple occasions.No deterent that's a big part of their life/career,they know that no one can touch them,jail is free bed & breakfast for them with plenty of drugs inside an added bonus.

Damn right and it is one hell of a deterent for others.

I remember here in FL last year some bullies pouring gas on a little kid and setting him on fire. The punishment should have been to pour gas on these kids legs and make them light it.

An eye for an eye. Although it's barbaric justice, I'm sure the women he blinded will feel a sense of justice. It won't however, bring back her sight. I don't follow any kind of religion, but doesn't the bible say "revenge is mine says the Lord", or something to that affect? Isn't this the same religion that believes in stoning and honor killings? All I know, is this is one barbaric and primitive religion.

liberals have never tasted true evil. they have never felt the pain of going through skin grafts.
they have never faced the first time they saw themselves in the mirror after the attack.

they speak whilst disassociating themselves from brutal realities!!
it is disgusting. it makes me boil with anger. it makes me wish they are put through the same "hell"
and lets see what they say then!!

there's more to this than just the fact that 2 people will be needlessly blinded as apposed to one,
the psychological effects that this could have on that woman are scary enough just on their own.

what happens when she gets her revenge & it doesn't make her feel better in the long run? what if 6 month's later she kills herself? then what? was it still worth it? all you people supporting this are bloody idiots.

if i may...

after the "deed" is done. if she decides to go to sleep. i would imagine she would have gone to sleep knowing justice was served.

i would imagine she she would accept not everyone gets dealt the best cards in life, you make do with what youre given.

as a thinking human being that is able to carve her destiny as much as one is allowed. i would imagine she would go to sleep content. she would know that everyone goes to sleep sooner or later. maybe some sooner than later.

Makes me wonder if this guy was blinded in the US if he could put in for financial government assistance for his particular disability after his punishment was legally executed by the government?

The man himself is the one that requested this particular punishment. The woman is blinded in both eyes, not just one. This will be done in a hospital and he will be asleep when it happens.

I would have preferred that he be made to support her for the rest of her life, but with no contact.

Terrible event. It's good you forgive but you let the Law adminster the justice properly. real law, real justice real punishment.

That also means revenge killings are treated by the same law. You kill my wife, I kill the murderer before the law gets him and the law kills me.

You don't do it - the law and government do.

Those that talk about Jesus compassion are right, but the state delivers the punishment not you. It's the state law that is weak and allows a slap on the wrist for those that main and kill our children. Do you wnat them to get away with it?

I can forgive a ma and let him die by the hands of the state. Forgiveness allows me not to carry the burden thats why Jesus said we should forgive. It's for our sake and not just the offender. This is where religion has taught us wrong and real Christianity has been lost.

Forgiveness is for our benefit as revenge screws us up ans we get punished by the rapist and then the anger. Let anger go but for heavens sake lwets not allows these criminals to get off lightly, get out early and go out and do it again to your children this time.

Remember that for someone on this forum will suffer loss at the hands of someone else today. Come back and tell us how you feel now?

Who says he requested it ? Maybe Iranian state propaganda. I doubt anyone requests that. I think he would sooner choose death than such a horrible punishment. "Please judge, pour acid on my eyes!" Yeah, right, like that happened.

If she commits suicide because she can't get over what she herself did or allowed (which is exactly the hypothetical I offered) then within the context of that hypothetical she cannot possibly feel good about it at the same time. If what you are retorting is outside of the context of the hypothetical I created then your argument is invalid.

get it? probably not.

I am in no way a religious person, but the "eye for an eye" type of justice is ,in my opinion, a very good deterrent. Injure someone in a car accident because you were drunk or high? You get the same injuries and have to wait for medical help the same amount of time they did. Rape? The victim and family get to decide your punishment and carry it out. Make every punishment fit the crime. Prisons cost the taxpayer millions upon millions each year and many will re offend within a fairly short time. Years of appeals and expensive lawyers that get them deals and very short sentences, are the reason major criminals are still out on the street. You want to decrease crime ? Get a set of laws that will actually scare the criminals. For those who don't agree, keep patting them on the hand telling them they are a victim of society and putting them through rehab programs. Seems to be working just great so far.

It probably won't happen today. It might not happen at all.


(Reuters) - Iran has postponed blinding a convicted man in retribution for throwing acid in the face of a woman in 2004, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Saturday.

"The punishment of Majid was scheduled to be carried out on Saturday at a hospital but it has been postponed," Fars quoted an unnamed official as saying, without giving details.

Amnesty International has urged Iran not to carry out the sentence, saying: "the Iranian authorities have a responsibility under international law to ensure it does not go ahead."

Iran eye-for-an-eye acid punishment 'postponed'

By Mohammad Davari (AFP)

TEHRAN — The court-ordered blinding of an Iranian man convicted of throwing acid in the face of a fellow student who spurned him was postponed at the 11th hour on Saturday, the ISNA news agency reported.

The news agency gave no source for its report and there was no official word on any stay.

The sentence against Majid Movahedi had been scheduled to be carried out at noon (0730 GMT) at the judiciary hospital in Tehran in the presence of a physician and representatives of the coroners' office and the prosecution.

"The execution of qesas (retribution in kind) of Majid ... has been postponed to an unknown date," ISNA reported on its website just hours before the appointed time.
