Masih stated, “They called me ‘Chora,’ an insulting word used for Christians. Then they began accusing me of selling unclean merchandise to Muslim children. I wanted to argue and make them understand that this wasn’t true but they didn’t listen to me. Instead, they began to beat and torture me.”
Soon, approximately twenty other men joined in the attack. They not only beat Masih, but also damaged his bicycle and scattered his ice-cream along the ground.
