Man Throws Acid In 4-Year-Old Girl’s Face And Blinds Her, Is Shocked When He Hears His Punishment

An Iranian man is set to be blinded by the state as punishment for blinding a young girl with acid. The Daily Mail reports that in 2009, a 4-year-old was blinded by a man who threw acid in her face.

The law of retribution in Iran states that criminal can be punished via the dictum ‘an eye for an eye.’ This is considered a central part of Sharia law, which is enacted by the Islamic government of Iran.

Human rights groups, however, condemn this form of punishment, which is used in many Islamic countries. According to The Guardian, Mahmood Amiry-Moghaddam, from Iran Human Rights (IHR), an independent NGO based in Norway, condemned the blinding as barbaric.

“Medical staff who cooperate with the Iranian authorities in this act have broken the Hippocratic oath and cannot call themselves doctors,” he said.

The head of criminal affairs for the Tehran prosecutor’s office, Mohammad Shahriari, said: “In 2009, this man threw lime into the face of a little girl of four years in the Sanandaj region, leaving her blind. Today, the law of retribution was applied in my presence and that of experts.”

This is not the lone case of “eye for an eye” type punishment in Iran this year. Mojtaba Saheli had his left eye blinded after he attacked and blinded a taxi driver with acid. He is scheduled to have his right eye blinded, as well.

Raha Bahreini, a researcher with Amnesty International’s Iran team, claims that this form of punishment is “unspeakably cruel.”

She told The Guardian: “Blinding is totally prohibited under international law, along with stoning, flogging, amputation and other forms of corporal punishment provided in Iran’s Islamic penal code and must not be carried out under any circumstances.”

My Question is :
If a man (without a daughter) rapes a teenage girl, how would Law of retribution apply  to the father of the victim? Rape the perpetrator's son (if any).  What about if it happens to the a teenage girl of a single mother? Will the rapist have to marry the teenage girl as "compensation" not as "Retribution"?

Points to ponder. Malaysian Laws isn't that harsh after all.

Itu dia panggil undang-undang Syariah. Sebenarnya itu lagi adil sebab mata orang itu sudah hilang dan seharusnya nak balas pakai apa? Duit tak boleh beli mata baru bukan? Kita pakai undang-undang tuhan lagi sempurna.
