Full Version: An eye for an eye Forums > General > Political & World News
An Iranian man is due to be blinded today by a court ordered process assisted by a doctor.

This comes as a punishment for him throwing acid into the face of a woman who refused to marry him and blinding her.

Is this fair? I'm not against "an eye for an eye", but usually it's not in the literal sense. This time it is literal. I think murder (capital punishment) is okay as punishment for a murder, but acid in the eyes is so gruesome that I feel uncomfortable about it.

The crime he did was of such an evil nature that I don't think a life-time sentence is enough. He should either take acid in at least one eye, or lose his head completely.
