ImageTehran, Iran, Nov. 27 – An Iranian court sentenced a man to be blinded with acid as punishment for blinding a woman several years ago, state-run press reported on Thursday.

The defendant, identified only by his first name Majid, 27, was sentenced by the court to be blinded in both eyes, the hard-line daily Quds wrote. It added that Majid was found guilty of blinding a woman identified as Ameneh Bahrami in 2004.

The phrase "an eye for an eye" is very stringently adhered to in Iran's Islamic law.
 
Iran's Islamic penal system regularly practices centuries-old sentences for petty crimes, such as amputation of limbs, eye gouging, stoning to death, and throwing prisoners off a cliff in a sac.
