    1. Saba Naqvi is an incredible journalist and a star in a place where voices of reasoning and freedom of expression are hugely challenged to a point it has turned into yellow journalism. Readers experience & enjoy more fake news than the real news and AI adds to even more confusion.

  2. Saba is such an intelligent smart woman. I mostly agree with her views and thoughts. Sometimes, however, feels as if is she influenced. All best wishes to Saba.

  3. Saba is clear and level-headed in her assertions. A forthright, no-nonsense journalist without undue aggression. A great human being. It is a pleasure to listen to her exposition of the subject.

  4. Saba is great Indian media person. I admire her as a fearless & objective Indian journalist. Her TV debates are great to watch.

  5. Seen you many times on TV debates, esp. Republic TV.

    You talk sense. Wish others echo the same sentiments.
