Bizarre: Egyptian cuts off his own hand to avoid stealing

An Egyptian man has self-imposed Sharia Law on his own self, by chopping off both of his hands in a bid to stop his addictive stealing habit.

Ali Afifi, 28-year-old, lost his first hand in 2008 by holding it under the wheels of a fast-moving train.

Afifi, who posed for the above picture few weeks ago reportedly asked an Imam to cut off his second hand because he still could not stop stealing.

Afifi said: “But the Sheikh refused my request, saying he is not a ruler or in a decision-making position to take such a decision… he advised me to repent and seek God’s help… I then decided to cut my hands off.”
