Great job Hamid Mir. The way you took stand for Shehzad Roy, I salute you. This shows you are a man of self respect and you respect your guests as well. But to be honest calling Shehzad Roy was not a good choice on Capital talk. You should have called someone more mature who can at least take his own stand rather than sitting and smiling all the time and literally talking non-sense. Don't get me wrong but he could not argue on this minister's BS comments.
