There Are No Words To Describe This

I received an email containing pictures of the purportedly inhuman punishment of a child for stealing bread in Iran. Email that contain half-truths and lies have reached such epidemic proportion that it has become difficult to separate the true from the untrue.

This email ended with this: No religion can ever justify such a hideous crime. Pass it on...Let the world know what is happening in the name of religion. Pass this to all for public awareness.

According to a reliable source, the pictures are authentic. But the eight-year old Iranian boy whose arm was run over by the lorry was not punished for a crime. He was merely performing "Maareke giry", or a street magic act for money. Note the gentleman (picture 1) speaking into the microphone, apparently advertising the performance. Pictures 6 and 7 which showed the boy shaken but unharmed were omitted from the series. The email first surfaced in November 2005.

  1. Whatever the situation, I cannot believe that this little boy did it voluntarily or without pressure from his peers. This is not acceptable whatever....

  2. You could be right. The need to live may be the primary reason for doing what he does. I don't like to see children begging in the streets, but that is a fact of life in many poor countries.

  3. Thank you for posting the reality about this email. I can't stand the negative feelings that these kinds of altered forwards create in the internet world, and they fly all over the world. As if we don't already have enough problems and strife!

    God Bless You and especially all the poor children and people in the world.
