  1. What about his fast? That would be the first concern of the mullahs followed by cut off his hand. Amputation is the magical mullah cure for theft. Never mind the socioeconomic conditions that cause crime. The large income gap and the cosumerist mentality is to be ignored.

  2. He is at fault. He only stole 4500Rf.

    Now, we all know that if you steal over 1 million Rf, it's not a crime.
