Fueling controversy over comparing Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar and Tibetian leader Dalai Lama, Pakistan journalist has faced a backlash from the Twitterati over his remark.

In the matter related to China blocking Masood Azhar from being declared as a ‘global terrorist,’ the journalist retweeted an old piece of news where the headline was described Tibetian leader Dalai Lama as “terrorist”.

It’s very easy to understand why China blocked resolution against Masood Azhar in UNSC?India sheltering an enemy of China since decades and his name is Dalai Lama,” tweeted Hamid Mir.

It was after 1959, when Dalai Lama fled Tibet after it came under the direct control of China and took refuge in Dharamsala. He has been here since then and has become a spiritual leader, followed by many across the world. He was awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Twitterati backlashed as one of the user said, “Comparing a nonviolent peace award winner #DalaiLama with a terrorist #MasoodAzhar !!! Now we know why Pakistan is a Begger Nation. Go baba beg for some money from China & Saudi.”

Another user said, “A REAL GEM! One have to accept this from the #Pakistani journalists. They can claim to be sovereign and true, but they can't hide from their paymasters. This @HamidMirPAK is a Paki journalist and he likens a global terrorist #HafizSaeed to a Noble laureate #DalaiLama . Waah!”
