UPDATE APRIL 27 2015: EDITORS NOTES: This was a HOAX!
This image appeared on Daily mail on 12 October 2006:
This man, Mario Quishpe, had been caught stealing and local villagers set fire to his legs after stripping him at Pelileo Grande, Ecuador. Later a priest with other locals took him to the hospital where his burns were treated. So this is the story of ‘Burned alive for being a thief!’ and not ‘Burned alive in Nepal for preaching the Gospel!’
This can not be true for a better reason!
There is a priest himself present in the image!
So the claim ‘burned alive for preaching the gospel’ is a HOAX!
