Iranian justice

I'm all for throwing the book at someone who blind's his lover's husband, but not so much if that book is the Quraan.

In case you need a reminder that Iranian authorities are really, really evil:

An Iranian man who blinded his lover's husband is to suffer a similar fate in a tit-for-tat sentencing – by having acid poured into his eye.

Iran’s Islamic code allows for ‘an eye-for-an-eye, a tooth-for-a-tooth’ retribution – known as 'qisas' – in cases of violent crime.

The convict, named only as Mojtaba, threw acid in the face of his rival Alireza, a taxi driver, after an illicit affair with the victim’s wife, Mojdeh.
