    Link: Iranian Guy Blinds A Woman With Acid - Reason? She refused to marry him. Now, she`s looking for payback. ``I want an eye for an eye,`` she says.

    An eye for an eye wouldn`t be enough for him. Seriously, who goes around throwing acid in people`s faces? What a dick.

    At least the fact that this is an outrage there proves that it isn`t all woman-hating. The middle east (at least, the more urban parts of it) is more humane than western culture gives it credit for.

    Wow, that`s sad. She was pretty before the attack.

    I see where she`s coming from wanting the guy to be blinded too but I don`t think it`s really the best thing to do. Although it would be a good way to scare other people planning on attacking someone with acid.

    They go by Sharia Law over there, Which is based on the code of Hammurabi (an eye for an eye).

    Personally I think acid in his eyes is too good a punishment for him. He should be jailed for life and all his assets turned over to her.

    I hate the thinking "an eye for an eye." This is not the day and age for such thinking. If the Americans believed in "an eye for an eye" after World War II, countries such as Germany, France, Poland, and all other in betweens would still be in an economic slump, without our assistance, despite previous alliances, Europe would still feel the effects of devestation. Forgiveness is important, revenge only harbors ill feelings, which manifests into much worse in the long term. Give this guy a severe punishment, and you only further anger his friends and family. We need to try and change society little by little, but things like "he deserves to lose his eyes" won`t teach him anything.

    Than again, in this corrupt world, what can we do?

    "They go by Sharia Law over there, Which is based on the code of Hammurabi (an eye for an eye)."

    Sharia Law is based on the Koran, also on the Sunnah (religious achievements and manners that were instituted by the Islamic prophet Muhammad) and the Igma, but no Hammurabi.

    PS. Poor woman, and that guy deserves to die!

    xboxman, that`s not necessarily true. Post world-war two, we promised every country aid, despite whether we had been in war with them. That is the sort of mentality the world needs, because that fostered growth, prosperity, and international unity. Nowadays i`m not so sure that really happens...

    ummm.. why was that necessary? you really think you can make an accurate judgement of my intellect based on one short comment? perhaps i did not make myself clear before. i understand that this is their culture, and that is their way, but blinding the man is simply an illogical route to accomplish her goal of preventing this happening to other women. cultural traditions do not exempt you from logical thinking.

    Its too bad we are not advanvced enough to remove his eyes and give them to her. Then throw acid in his face. It might deter it from happenining again to someone else by showing there are more than material losses to be had. Shame she cant have the money also.

    The entire concept of punishment is to act as a deterrent to future would-be offenders. Most punishments (like jail time) don`t work to discourage some offenders because people know that either a) they can avoid the punishment, or b)they won`t mind it much (3 square meals a day, free cable, education, etc).

    If they do give him this punishment, the next guy who considers it might think: "If I go through with this, I risk the same punishment the last guy got. Maybe I shouldn`t do this."

    It`s unfortunate that there wasn`t someone nearby when it happened to act in her defense and "accidentally" kill this man.

    I don`t really want to join in this debate/discussion, but just a something to chew on that I remember from kolidge...

    Reasons for punishment:

    1. Deterrent - prevent would-be offenders from committing the crime for fear of punishment.

    2. Retribution/Revenge - for loved ones and society as a whole against the offender.

    3. Rehabilitation - teach the offender that what they did was wrong, so they don`t do it again; and, offer the offender vocational and sociological and psychological rehabilitation to help them become better-suited to law-abiding behavior.

    4. Prevention - taking the offender off of the streets prevents him from committing most crimes while he is incarcerated.

    "nobody truly changes, you can mask it all you want but the way you are is the way you are for life"

    just had to quote that for terrifying hopelessness

    "The entire concept of punishment is to act as a deterrent to future would-be offenders."

    actually, hobbes, the founder of western political philosophy, describes punishment as a way in which people are deterred from breaking their covenant with society.

    @at every american that thinks this is justified
    if you feel that "an eye for an eye" has any place in political justice then you are being severely misrepresented by the foundations of your constitution. this doctrine is passionate and political justice must remain as systematic as possible. a government has no right to act outside of pure reason.

    This is actually kind of a problem in countries where women hgave little choice in marriage, socially and culturally. Men will throw acid on the faces and bodies of girls they want to marry but can`t. It`s not just men to women either, it`s like this weird form of revenge that`s developing.

    Link to more in depth coverage.

    The theory is, this will prevent more attacks by publicly demonstrating the punishment for these kinds of grievous acts of violence.

    (The actual reference to Shariah btw, is Quran 5:45, translated by myself so feel free to check other sources:
    "We ordained for them: Life for life, eye for eye, nose or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal, but if anyone charitably forgoes this punishment, it is an act of atonement for themselves.
    If any fail to judge by what Allah hath revealed, they [then become"> wrong-doers").

    In Kenya, female activists are calling for the re-institution of laws which castrate men for rape.

    As I just mentioned Citizen V, the Quranic verse in question allows an eye for an eye as a maximum punishment.

    It advises charitably waving the right in favour of gaining greater heavenly rewards. (Which is a big deal, after all, you probably think the reason for all the terrorism is heavenly rewards).

    It also, for those going beyond the limit, tells them specifically that they are as bad as the person they are punishing, and will be punished accordingly.

    "An eye for an eye will make the world blind" is the happy catchphrase. I would suggest that stopping crazy people from hurling acid in people`s faces might be a more reasonable way to stop the world going blind.

    "Man has no right to act with the justice of God"

    Well you can lead a horse to water but it`s worth two in the bush. <-- Pointless catchphrase #365

    As I just said it says "This is your maximum". That`s what the whole Quran is about. "Never go beyond this".
    Are you seriously suggesting that it would be better to not limit humanity in it`s capacity for revenge?

    From the same chapter:
    5:87 "O you who believe! Do not forbid (yourselves) the good things which Allah has made lawful for you and do not exceed the limits; surely Allah does not love those who exceed the limits".

    "Sharia law, fair but wrong"
    Under what definition is fairness ever wrong?

    Final point on the issue before I need to go:

    The only reason prisons are currently a deterrent are the other prisoners. Rape and violence are your deterrents, not prison. I think you should keep that in mind when you`re comparing this punishment to what you consider the right thing to do.

    So your alternative is nothing? Don`t imprison. Don`t fine. Don`t punish.

    "Turn the other cheek" is so misunderstood, originally it meant to force your opponent to hit you with his other hand.

    You get slapped on your right with his left. You turn your other cheek to him in order to force him to use his right (i.e. holy) hand to hit you, at which point he would be unlikely to hit you as the weight of it being sinful is more prevalent.

    "So your alternative is nothing? Don`t imprison. Don`t fine. Don`t punish."

    what is necessary is accomplished through reason by the government. a government is a necessary thing due to the fallen nature of man. as an individual, however, you can combat the nature of the world.

    i`ll put it a different way. i think that you should put others before yourself. selflessness is the key to morality. the golden rule. sacrifice.

    And in this case the government has reasoned that:

    1) Enacting this law will be a deterrent to future attackers, as current methods (imprisonments and fines) have so far failed.
    2) She is within her rights to ask for this punishment.

    3) Initially they refused when they thought she meant the exact same punishment. When they realised she was asking for a lesser punishment (effectively only blinding him), discussion started.

    4) She is not going to be allowed to charge him with a bottle of acid "as an individual".

    5) In response to "Golden rule". As I said, the Quran specifically says you`ll be rewarded for applying it, but doesn`t force you to.

    Sgt:
    Me.
    Shariah law is not a black and white thing. Both Dubai and Iran practice "Strict Shariah law" according to the CIA world fact book, but they are entirely different in almost every way.

    In Iran: Not wearing a veil can get you imprisoned.
    In Dubai: Not wearing a veil is the norm, with no punishment.
    In Mohammed`s time: There`s seems to be no punishment.

    Drinking in Iran: Outlawed entirely, punisheable by imprisonment or sometime whipping.
    Drinking in Dubai: Broadly legal (you need a license).
    Drinking in Mohammed`s time: Mohammed saw a drunk, and called him a drunk...

    Specifically when it comes to punishments, governments can set any limits they like. If you hear "Shariah law demands punishment X!" it is bullpoo 999/1000 times.

    In this specific case I have given the verses they are using to justify it lower down.

    However, this is a unique punishment so far in Iran. This is certainly not the norm, and in the video it is suggested that the normal law against violent acts such as these are a fine.

    a government should not blind their citizens, period. ideally we would remove criminals from society and try to rehabilitate them. that doesn`t happen because of the nature of things. your ideals, however just assume the nature of the world and accept it. there is no aspiration for a more peaceful justice.

    I`m not actually sure what you`re agreeing with Opie.

    I think a summary of my posts would be:
    On the topic of whether or not this is Shariah:
    This does seem to legitimately fall under the limit of what Shariah allows. This can be argued however.

    In either case, this is pretty much the limit of what Shariah allows to be done to this guy.

    Shariah does not specify this punishment. This is not common or expected. This is a special request on behalf of the girl.

    **********

    On the topic of is it fair:
    I think yes. It was a horrible crime and this is a punishment to suit the crime.

    On the topic of is it justified:
    I think it is important to deter criminals.
    I think this will help.
    It therefore suits its purpose.

    On the topic of is it humane:
    I would say no, however, I think (limited) inhumanity is necessary for any deterrent property.

    The only way that society can rise above the evil acts of criminals is to withhold reasonable sane laws, not stoop to their level. An eye for an eye, be it blinding someone with acid, or executing them for murder is completely messed up.

    I agree, this smells like revenge on the one that took her sight, a natural desire, but justice shouldn`t allow for revenge. You could say that the punishment does fit the crime, but the act of physically disabling someone, no matter their crime, just feels too close to revenge.

    I also don`t like the sound of a system though where an individual can get off with just a fine for something like this. Would the fine replace jail time, or be on top of it?

    We have no right or credibility to question the definition of justice of any other culture. American justice is broken and steeped in racism. We are the hypocrites of the world. That being said, personally I say that vengeance should be hers to decide with no question. I wish female victims of abuse could get much deserved revenge agaist the slimy scum drat rapists and molesters of this country.

    I totally believe in an eye for an eye justice. If the U.S. used this method than there would be alot less violent crime. In my opinion I don`t think this man should be blinded but castrated. He wanted love and companionship, he can still get that when he is blind. And for the comment on the u.s. government being steeped in racism, I dont know where you come from but in baltimore it runs all ways. Black people are profiled in white suburban areas and the white people are profiled in the urban areas. Brown or middle-eastern people are profiled everywhere along with latinos and no one bothers asians.

    for it to truly be "an eye for an eye". someone would have to refuse to marry her. There just are too many variables that "an eye for an eye" never works in real life. You have to be fair to everyone.

    Who knows the real situation.

    if it was "an eye for an eye" in law... I think there would be far too many rapes. >___>

    Eye for an eye. This is justice. The Bible says `an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth`. Revenge is wrong, but shouldn`t a fair and equal punishment be meeted out?

    Well, I`d disagree with myself here. I can understand her position, but she could have accepted the money equally, which would have helped with her medical bills.

    > the Bible says...

    Exodus and Leviticus say "an eye for an eye" IF THERE IS FURTHER DAMAGE after a fight ends, ie if the fighter doesn`t accept his defeat gracefully and injures you unfairly AFTER the fight is over. It`s OT law.

    Jesus revoked it. He said (Matthew 5)
    38 You have heard that it was said, `AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH.`
    39 But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also
    40 If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.
    41 Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two.
    42 Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.

    The point was, OT law was no longer applicable, because the Special status of the Jews in God`s eyes was now open to anyone who believed in Jesus, Jews and Gentiles alike.

That is the way the clerics see this, they equate her because she is a female..to a a piece of luggage demanding justice be brought against a person using it. She will never have peace, she is the victim of two crimes.

    the problem with that idea is that some crimes would then basicly have no punishment
    for example stealing money you stole £1000 the court steals £1000 pounds from you how is that a punishment
    also there is the ethical part of who would be doing the punishment on them, so who stabs them in the back or throw acid in their face. wouldyou be willing to do that to everyone as your job? because some one would have to be.

    Well, I have to say this...

    Normally `blood money` is paid to victims of this sort of violence (as stated in the video). *BUT*
    The monsters that blind woman and girls like this would (and have) rather paid the money than be blinded.

    If paying that money is ok with this monsters then it`s become a sort of `fine` that they are willing to accept.

    If paying the money isn`t a deterrent to this type of crime, then maybe they need to think of something else that *will* work.

    Blinding this man (as distastful as it sounds)may stop others from blinding helpless woman and girls were paying the `blood money` has not.

    this kind of justice just controls people and has no hope of progress. a rehabilitative system of justice has the ability to create progress if its ideals are understood by the people. if you think criminals are born criminals and will never change, then f*ck it, let`s kill em all.

    I don`t necessarily agree with it.
    It may be a cruel punishment, but you have to admit it does suit the crime. And it is the law there.

    You also have to admit it is better then the slap on the wrist some criminals get.

    You clearly have no idea how Eastern law works. It is an eye for and eye tooth for a tooth. Example: if you steal, your hand gets cut off. It`s like that in Muslim countries as well as in places like Japan and China. She`s just asking for justice to be done.

    to all the people saying `eye for an eye` makes the woman just as bad as the attacker: are you fuc`king kidding me? no decent human being would ever want to inflict harm on another person, but when some arsehole decides to barbarically attack them, why the f`uck should they not get revenge? "yes, thank you, kind sir, for destroying my life and causing serious harm to me, you have opened my eyes to the beauty of life, and i thank you". if no one ever `stooped to their level` criminals would forever get away with horrific actions and never be punished for the irreparable damage they cause.

    Torture, that`s what that man needs.

    She was so beautiful before, and now he ruined her sight and face just because she didn`t obey him and marry him?

    I say that SHE should be allowed to pour acid in his eyes.

    Human Rights activists say it`s too extreme?

    Well let`s ask this then:

    What is a proper punishment in a culture we don`t live in and aren`t supposed to make the rules in?

    I really can`t stand that aspect of this country. We would go ape poo if another country came here and told us what to do because they didn`t agree.

    I`m not saying it`s right, but it isn`t wrong. It`s just something that is.

    The idea of "eye for an eye" is because the whole world will not go blind- it`s a serious penalty that people will take SERIOUSLY. Look how people laugh at our prison system? And do our people ever fully return to society as productive members? The people would LEARN- not have everyone go blind. Assuming people are intelligent enough to learn...

    People would not learn from an eye for an eye, except to be afraid of everything. What if an accident happened, what if someone was wrongly accused, wrongly found guilty. If an eye for an eye ruled the world, ruled all countries, those people would suffer for something they hadn`t planned on doing or didn`t do at all. Where does it stop? Those activists aren`t criticizing the country`s thinking, they`re criticizing that aspect, just as some of America`s laws are criticized as well.

    And besides, I rarely see the term "an eye for an eye" go for the reverse. People are rarely given back for doing good. So do you say that an eye for an eye should only apply towards the negative? Then what`s that teaching the people of the world except do good, recieve nothing, do bad, recieve punishment.

    I Like The Idea Of "Eye For An Eye" Especially If It Applies To Murder... I Mean Who Would Attack Another Person If They Knew It Was Going To Come Back And (Possibly Literally) Bite Them In The Butt??

    "The only way that society can rise above the evil acts of criminals is to withhold reasonable sane laws, not stoop to their level. An eye for an eye, be it blinding someone with acid, or executing them for murder is completely messed up"

    umm yeah, if some dumby came up and hit me, i hit back, i don`t htink let em hit me and see what the law comes up with that is reasonable and sane, i kick their little ass
