I know I'm going to catch flak for this, but I don't care. In this case, I think the punishment is completely appropriate.
He BLINDED the woman by throwing acid into her face. This is not a case of mere revenge; he has been through their legal system, been found guilty, and will be punished in a degree equal to that of his crime. I think it is extremely fair.
Now on to rapists and child molesters...
*Too bad that in Islam it is nearly impossible to prove rape without 4 witnesses, without whom the victimized woman will be stoned to death for adultery.

Some people have spoken about "love, and forgiveness". I can't help but think that those people don't know what it's like to be victimized by some of the scum that resides in and out of American prisons. I think there should be zero tolerance for some crimes, like rape, murder and especially child molestation. Those people do not deserve love and forgiveness, only death.

No-one is saying that this bloke is innocent, but to decide by law that he is to be blinded by the 'victim' is so far along the path of wrong I am surprised that anyone here could believe this 'sentence' to be just.
It's stories like this that make me wonder whether humanity stands any chance of making it.
Same type of "justice" is used in Haiti...may not be officially sanctioned, but it very much exists there to this day in some parts of the country. Steal an item from someone's house, you lose a hand; steal someone's wife, and you lose....well you can figure that one out...
For a country such as Iran which is trying to show the world that they are supposedly such a shining example of that part of the world for all to emulate, or envy, they are still a thousand years behind the times.
