Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Wednesday in a meeting with Ameneh Bahrami praised her humanitarian decision of pardoning cruel man who deprived her of both eyes by throwing a pitcher of acid on his face after she rejected her marriage proposal, IRNA reported.
"The selflessness and sacrifice that was manifested in your move was a cause to feel proud for us and for the Iranian nation, and caused also a spiritual evolution in many people who took lessons of you," Ahmadinejad said in the meeting.
Ahmadinejad also expressed hope that the brave pardoning would leave such a sustainable effect on the stone hearts of criminals like the beast who committed this horrible crime that no one of them would ever think of committing such nasty crimes.
The president reiterated, "Everyone must learn to love the entire human being, because the enmities and hard feelings are the result of the hegemony of Satan over the souls of the people."
Ameneh Bahrami who had come to visit Ahmadinejad along with her family members presented a report about the process of her remedies and her personal and social incentives in pardoning the cruel victim who committed this inhumane crime.
Iran's prosecutor general, who also praised Bahrami's brave decision, had reiterated on Tuesday night on IRIB Chanel One news that due to the public aspect of the committed crime, the criminal would still remain in prison.
Majid Movahedi was set to be blinded with the application of five drops of acid to each eye. The penalty is in retribution for his crime, of pouring a bucked of acid over Ameneh Bahrami, who had rejected several marriage proposals from Movahedi.
The sentence was handed down in 2008. Mohavedi turned himself in two weeks after the attack and admitted to the crime during a preliminary hearing.
