Ishtiaq Masih, had ordered tea at a stall in Machharkay village, Punjab, Pakistan
When Ishtiaq went to pay for his tea, the owner noticed that he was wearing a necklace with a cross and grabbed him, calling for his employees to bring anything available to beat him for violating a sign posted on the stall warning non-Muslims to declare their religion before being served.
Witnesses claim the owner and 14 of his employees beat Ishtiaq with stones, iron rods and clubs, and stabbed him multiple
A correspondent from the ICC confirmed that he saw a warning posted outside the tea stall, which read: "All non-Muslims should introduce their faith prior to ordering tea. This tea stall serves Muslims only."

I'm sure not an authority on Pakistan, but what kind of roadside tea stall employs 14 people? The taco joint I go to on a huge, busy, American street doesn't have 14 employees--maybe six. Then they have rods, clubs, etc. in the stall? Sounds strange to me.

There shouldn't be any more space for people like these on this planet. Fanaticism is a disease of the mind and extremists are just animals.
