For a "journalist" you are quite vague. Is that by design or is it a compulsion arising out of your not having anything concrete to say?
What is the "he said, she said" in Rashneek's 'report' (Nishant Dudha's rather)?
Rashneek seems to have narrated a sequence of events and stated questions arising from them. What is it that you find objectionable?
Rashneek is not a journalist (are you Rashneek?). He has spoken with passion about his pain. Yet, he has managed to present rationally his experience. "Rashneek's report" did not even state his conclusion. He put it up as a question to be answered "Is Indian intelligentsia Liberal or Hypocrite?".
You Aman, since you have thrust your "journalist" tag in our faces should have 'investigated' and presented your reporting of 'what exactly happened'. If you did that and if you carried no preconcieved notions and biases, you Aman would have ended up with a lot of "he saids" and "she saids". That would be journalism.
Aman your derision " It is indeed tragic that he expects to be taken seriously" is nothing but the word-howl of a scavenging hyena.
AFTERTHOUGHT: Many "Journalists" are extremely uncomfortable with the ability of individuals to express themselves and reach readerships without having to go through the "As reported by XXX" journalistic route. It threatens the arrogance of their presumed role of being the only ones who should report/inform.

As as journalist, i have always had a, perhaps misplaced, suspicion of
blogmedia. While blogmedia and list-servs have done some fantastic
work, what is saddening is how texts based on a series of loosely
worded conjectures pass off as investigative work. Of course an even
mildly critical viewing of our news channels and news media will
reveal the same conjectures passed off as news - usually when it
concerns matters of national security, separatism, and of course,
jihad. So perhaps i should retract my previous statement.
Rashneek's report seems to consist of little beyond a "he said, she
said." In fact, he admits to as much in his "pre-emptive" post. It
is indeed tragic that he expects to be taken seriously.
It would be interesting to view Pawan Durani's list of financiers. It
would be even more interesting to know where he gets his lists from.
