Leftist Indian reporter Ved Pratap Vaidik shared an afternoon's tea with Pakistan's most dangerous Muslim militant terrorist, Hafiz Saeed, who claimed responsibility for Mumbai terror attacks in 2008.
According to Channel NewsAsia, "How far should a journalist go when chasing a story? The limits of media freedom are being debated in India after a freelance journalist interviewed one of India's most wanted terrorists in Pakistan."
Mr. Vaidik is quoted as saying that, "The biggest objective of my interview was to know about the person who committed such a big massacre. What sort of a person is he? What does he think? What is the reason behind it? What is his inspiration? What are his capabilities? What is his willpower? What is his conduct?"
As reported by Channel NewsAsia, "The photo tweeted by Indian journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik of his meeting in Lahore with one of India's most wanted terrorists, Hafiz Saeed, sparked much debate in India. India blames Pakistani Saeed for masterminding the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks which killed more than 160 people."
Mr. Vaidik sought to show a softer side to jihad.
