An eye for an eye

Just next door to us in Saudi Arabia an Indian worker is set to have his eye gouged out by court order as punishment for blinding a Saudi national in a fight.
It really takes the phrase "an eye for an eye" to a whole new level! The whole thing sounds very gruesome and medieval. If the KSA is keen on joining the 21st century it's going to have to get rid of such antiquated practices, otherwise it will be continue to be regarded as a backwater of the world.
