An eye for an eye: Criminal will be blinded by having ACID poured over his face next week in Iran

An Iranian man is to be completely blinded in an ‘unspeakably cruel’ punishment for having blinded a taxi driver with acid in 2009.

Mojtaba Saheli, 31, was blinded in one eye with acid last year, but is now set to undergo the second and final stage of his punishment – the destruction of his right eye.

Iran’s Islamic code allows for ‘an eye-for-an-eye, a tooth-for-a-tooth’ retribution – known as ‘qisas’ – in cases of violent crime.

    What a total misunderstanding of eye-for-eye.

    That said, it seems to work.

      I agree, as I do get fed up with the misinterpretation of the Jewish law. However, perhaps it is better to apply it this way for Muslims, since otherwise they will have a flow of repeat offenders.

    These f***ing 7th century neanderthals obviously don’t understand what “an eye for an eye” mean and they probably don’t care much, as long as it satisfies their inbred bloodthirsty zeal to slaughter, wound or maim. In the name of Allah’s poop-chute, of course.

    I’m so sick of this miserable clot of “people”.

    Good. They should kill and eat each other to the last one standing.

        Yes, and when the Mohammedans replace the indigenous westerners they will embark upon great discoveries and inventions well beyond that achieved thus far in the west, it’s all the Koran, the only book needed … well this is what the western elite think is going to happen.

    Only these mooslim baboons behave in this way.
