woman forgives man for blinding her...

Just kidding, she wants the court to drip 20 drops of acid into his eyes. And apparantly, it will be done.

A man who blinded a woman in an acid attack after she spurned his marriage proposals has been sentenced to the same punishment, in a literal application of Iran's sharia eye-for-an-eye laws.
In a highly unusual judgment, Tehran province criminal court ordered Majid Movahedi, 27, to be blinded in both eyes from drops of acid in response to a plea from his victim, Ameneh Bahrami.
Now certainly there is nothing funny about this case, however,

Testifying in Movahedi's presence, she told the court that she wanted "to inflict the same life on him that he inflicted on me". Asked by the judge if she wanted Movahedi's face to be splashed with acid, she replied: "That is impossible and horrific. Just drip 20 drops of acid in his eyes so he can realise what pain I am undergoing."

her response was sort of amusing. As with any country, there are many things to criticize regarding Iran, yet, in this case I don't see a problem.
