New Delhi: A tweet by a senior Pakistani journalist in which he compared the Tibetan leader Dalai Lama with terrorist Masood Azhar has triggered a storm on Twitter. The users have been slamming the journalist for his remark.

Referring to China blocking India and other nations bid to list Masood as a global terrorist, the journalist retweeted a decade old news article whose headline described the Tibetan leader as a "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," Hamid Mir tweeted.
