While Pakistan mourns Edhi's demise, this reporter is putting journalism to shame.

After a Pakistani journalist was exposed by a child for making him stand in the rain to take a question about the weather, another reporter in Pakistan is up to some bizarre journalism.

According to a tweet that is going viral, a Pakistani journalist reported live from the grave of renowned philanthropist, social activist and humanitarian Abdul Sattar Edhi.

Edhi passed away in Karachi on July 8 at the age of 88.

In a bid to share maximum details with the viewers, the journalist actually went inside the grave, lay down and reported live from there.

Twitter user Sheharyar Goraya tweeted about this 'sick' journalism from his handle @gorayaism and the tweet went viral within hours of it being posted. It has been retweeted 562 times and liked by more than 200 people.




Following this, social media users slammed the journalist for going overboard to garner TRPs and called his act 'disgusting', 'ridiculous' and 'despicable.






















And so while Pakistan mourns Edhi's demise, this reporter from a particular news channel is embarrassing the journalists of that country.
