    According to Quran and Sharia his hands should have been cut off. See Ayat 5:38

    And (as for) the man who steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands as a punishment for what they have earned, an exemplary punishment from Allah; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.

      Allah was the delusional figment of the sick mind of a demented blood thirsty pervert…… to be quite frank in a country of extreme poverty the boy was probably better off dead than be the victim of barbaric amputations…. how would he support himself financially with no hands to perform even the most menial of tasks?…Islam is an aberration!
