A senior Pakistani Journalist Hamid Mir, took to Twitter, soon after China blocked a UNSC move to list the JeM chief as a terrorist, to liken Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar to Nobel laureate the Dalai Lama.
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 https://t.co/Pc3BnbaO2Z

Minutes after Hamid Mir, in his tweet mentioned that “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”, Twitterati dressed him down for his asininity.
One Twitter user named Amrita Bhinder in a snappy comeback schooled Mir for his audacious comparison.
Masood Azhar is a terrorist!
Dalai Lama is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, just like Malala.
PS: He was awarded Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his NONVIOLENT campaign over nearly 40 years to end China’s domination of his homeland
A mind bender for Pakistan?

There were several others like Bhinder who took offence in Hamid Mir’s comment.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Masood Ajhar are the same? Ok, we realize why Pakistanis are what they are.

Hamid Bhai, If you claim to be the Top media person of Pakistan, I pity you and your Viewers.
You are trying to give a spin by comparing Masood Azhar and Dalai Lama.
Bhai ,Dalai Lama Dunia ke 4th largest religion ke Spiritual Guru hain.

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 the Nobel Peace Prize.
Raged by this obnoxious comparison one of the users backlashed by saying, “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.”
Notably, Hamid Mir was also amongst those who had lied brazenly about the Balakot airstrike. By claiming that the only casualty in Balakot airstrike was that of a crow, Mir had subjected himself to a plethora of memes and mockery.
India’s attempt to get Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed’s chief Masood Azhar declared a “global terrorist” by the UN Security Council was once again blocked by China as it placed a “technical” hold on the resolution on Wednesday. This is the fourth time that China has blocked the resolution against Azhar since 2009.
The proposal to designate Azhar under the 1267 Al Qaeda Sanctions Committee of the UN Security Council was moved by France, the UK and the US on February 27, days after the Pulwama terror attack carried out by a suicide bomber belonging to the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) that led to a flare-up in tensions between India and Pakistan.
