Associated Press cited Iranian media on Nov. 8 that the authorities in Iran on the basis of 'retribution in kind' and 'an eye for an eye' have blinded a man for throwing harmful chemicals in the face of a four-year-old girl back in 2009 that destroyed her vision.
The harsh punishment of totally blinding a man, despite happening in rare cases, but still a brutal act to be done by state regardless of the crime. 
The semi-official Fars news agency affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) said Tuesday's punishment was only the second time the Islamic Republic has implemented the 'eye for an eye' legal provision, which was first approved in 1958. In March 20 15 a man convicted of blinding another man in an acid attack was blinded in one eye in a prison near Tehran.
