Well, violence can go both ways.

It was not a good day for Hojatoleslam Ali Beheshti when in the streets of the Iranian city Shahmirzad he pointed out that a woman did not follow the rules of proper veiling. The lady did not accept the remark and gave the spiritual leader a beating he will never forget. The imam had to stay in the hospital for three days.
"Cover yourself as it should," Beheshti scolded the woman on his way to his mosque. "Cover your eyes, you," the lady snapped at him. When the imam repeated his command, the woman lost control. She yelled and cursed Beheshti, pushed him to the ground and started hitting him with all her power.
The imam had to be hospitalized. Only after three days he could go home. "It was my religious duty to do what I did," he said afterwards. "I must recommend the good and judge the bad and will continue to do so, despite this not so pleasant experience."
