A Pakistani man has been severely chastised for expressing his will to marry a woman.
Abdul Baqi’s father literally gouged his eyeballs out with a spoon after he voiced his intention to propose to the girl he loved, according to The Sun.
After breaking the news, the 22-year-old was held down and blinded by his father and four brothers, his veins cut with a knife, to present what they claimed to be “an example for other boys in the village.”
Abdul was rushed to a hospital by his other siblings, who were informed by disturbed neighbors shortly after the assault.
The father and two brothers involved in the incident have been arrested while the police are still searching for the other two perpetrators.
