I am not for or against any particular religion but when I do notice extreme injustice carried out in the name of 'God', I have to put my two pence in. Mind you this is not an opportunity for the Christians to emerge and continue with their hate campaign, this is for the Muslims to give their own explanations of this ghastly deed.

I doubt if the picture has been doctored just to get this point across. I just want to know if this happens because of Man's law or God's law. So far none of the people who follow the religion, that perpetuates this action, has replied.

No the pictures aren't doctored, the event was doctored.

Snopes is usually reliable, so:

As much as I detest religion I don't think the above has anything to do with any particular 'faith'.

Rather it is just the harsh reality of life in a country going through a trying period.

petty thieves have their arms cut off in shariah.
It's not new.
Even happens in Naija.
Allah is all knowing and 'merciful' ain't he?

@Babyosisi: No one has ever committed any offense, for the first time is ever caught and punished, under Sharia law! Also, no one who out of neccessity, commits the crime of theft is justly punished. In sharia, there is a process of 'Law and Order'. True sharia is not being practiced in any place on earth, today! It is not in the so called Sharia states of Nigeria, any other nation in the so called muslim countries. There is no Islamic country right now. The head of Islamic nation or community is the Khalifah. Most khalifahs, at least the first four; Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali (RA), were just rulers. They did not encroched on the right of those people under their authorities, be they, rich or poor, men or women, muslims or non muslims. All were treated with God consciousness in mind. This is true Sharia.

The lukewarm muslim rulers as cohorts, with the enemies of Islamic unity, are fighting against this inevitable , must happen office and convergence of Islamic people. The differences in the Islamic groups, because I know you will remind me of Shia and Sunni splinter groups, is very esoterical or cosmetic at best. All will converge, under the leadership of the Khalifah, as soon as the office is occupied.

Honey no one made mention of how many times the theft occured,it wouldn't hurt for you to be straightforward from time to time and with less words too.

@Babyosisi: I am straight forward. Islam is not built on phraseology. The Qur'an is heavy, so the Hadith is a means of its explanation. Yet, a single hadith has a collection of books, trying to explain it. It was reported that Ali, RA, was explaining Bismillahir. The B explanation took him from Ishai prayer to Subuhi pray of the following day, yet he did not finish its explanation!.
