A jealous lover who blinded a woman with acid is also to be blinded with acid under the country’s Islamic law.

A 27-year-old named only as Majid confessed to attacking Amenah Bahrami in 2004 to dissuade anyone from marrying the woman he loved.

Wednesday’s ruling was issued based on the Islamic law system of ‘qisas,’ or eye for an eye retribution.  The reports say Ameneh asked the court to sentence Majid, who was only identified by his first name, to be blinded by acid to prevent similar attacks on other women.

Majid is allowed to appeal the verdict.

    First, I can’t really look at the picture, it’s really disturbing…But I think the guy who did this should have the same thing done to him and then be forced to go to night clubs and try to pick up women. Bastard.

    Yes this post was made to have us think, but it still feels off the “TTM” path… If I wanted to see content of this subject matter, I’d turn on the news.

    I wish I could offer a solution too, but maybe one has been created?

    [you know I mean this in the best way possible]
