What had the boy done that his life ended that way?
Why did that teacher beat him up like that?
Why did his parents sent him to such a school?
He was just 11 years old.

So many questions and I have no real answers to them.
I was lost for words when I first started following this story last week and I still am when I heard that the boy had passed away this afternoon.
I always tried to avoid discussing religion because as I admitted in the past, I'm not a very religious person and have limited religious knowledge.
However, on this one, please excuse me for stating that I am very disappointed that this tragedy happened at a religious school and the teacher who beat up the boy most probably a supposedly religious man.
What actually happened?
Obviously something was wrong.
Religious or not, you are not supposed to beat up an 11 year-old kid.
Especially not to the point of causing the child to lose his limbs and eventually die.
Fine, I'm not going to pass judgement beyond that.
I would wait for the authorities to complete their investigation.
This is just me taking out this lump of sadness from my heart.
Deepest condolences for the boy's family.
Allah loves him more than anyone else, definitely.
