Iran's Supreme Court to Make a Woman Blind in "Eye-for-an-Eye" Punishment

An Iranian woman is to be blinded in one eye as punishment for throwing acid on another woman's face that left her sightless two years ago, the country's Supreme Court has ruled.

The sentence along with seven years imprisonment was announced using the principle of 'eye-for-an-eye' of Islamic Sharia law which allows retribution in cases where bodily injuries are inflicted.

Sharia (shari'a), Islamic sharia, Islamic law (Arabic: شريعة‎‎ (IPA: [ʃaˈriːʕa])) is the religious law forming part of the Islamic tradition.

It is derived from the religious precepts of Islam, particularly the Quran and the Hadith.
