New Delhi: As Pakistan mourns the death of philanthropist and humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi, a reporter from Express News, in a bid to share, went a little too far.
According to the tweet, the reporter seems to be reporting from inside the Edhi’s grave which he reportedly prepared for himself in Edhi village 25 years ago.
“He had confirmed burial space 25-years ago near Edhi village and will be buried there as per his wishes,” Faisal said.
The picture shared on Twitter with text along with the report says “Karachi: inside the last resting place of the servant of humanity, Abdul Sattar Edhi.”, went viral overnight.
Many on social media condemn the reporter and questioned the ethics behind such senseless reporting.
