Here’s Something From Iran for These United States to Copy

Iranian Top Court Orders Man’s Eyes to be Gouged Out and Nose, Ears Chopped Off for Pouring Acid on Girl

From The International Business Times by Vasudevan Sridharan, March 3, 2014

The highest court in Iran has ordered a man’s eyes to be gouged out and his ears and nose to be chopped off for pouring acid on a girl.

The convict, identified only by his first name Jamshid, was found guilty of throwing acid on a girl named Shirin in October.

The victim lost her eyes and one of her ears in the attack, according to the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Iran’s so-called parliament-in-exile which is based in France.

The Iranian government has defended such harsh punishments, often prompting severe condemnation from rights groups.

According to a Iranian judicial law, chiefly based on the principles of Islam, chopping off condemned convicts’ limbs and removing their eyes is sanctioned and are reportedly widely practiced.

Recently, another condemned prisoner’s hand and foot were ordered to be cut off, local reports said.

It is also reported there have also been frequent public executions in Iran.
