(Worthy News)-- A Pakistani Christian boy who was set on fire by young Muslims after he professed his faith in Jesus Christ has died of his injuries, BosNewsLife reported.

Nauman Masih, 13, was attacked Friday, April 10, at a market in Lahore's Gulshan Ravi area, where he reportedly got into a conversation about Christianity with two men on a motorbike, whose faces were covered.

"They poured kerosene oil on him and set him on fire,” said Sardar Mushtaq Gill, director of of advocacy group Legal Evangelical Association Development (LEAD).

The boy reportedly collapsed and fell to the ground before onlookers called emergency services and he was rushed to hospital. Police said in separate remarks that the attack happened when he came out of a shop where he used to work.
