Mansoor Ali Criticizes Samar Khan
Pakistani journalist Mansoor Ali has criticized Samar Khan for lying about cycling to K2 base camp. He pointed out that porters are available to carry items to the base camp and this is what she did as it is not possible to cycle all the way to the K2 base camp.
“Please don’t misguide people as many girls may try to cycle to the K2 base camp following your example and endanger their lives.” he added.
