Few read Blitz weekly in Bangladesh and even fewer knew about its existence outside the country. Not anymore. After it came out with its story on Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari last month, Blitz is being quoted widely in  the media, not only in the subcontinent but also as far afield as the UK. Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, the publisher-cum-editor of the journal, spoke to Pranay Sharma on the latest controversy Blitz has created and his role in it.

Your story on Pakistan foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar and PPP scion Bilawal Bhutto Zarari has created a stir in India and a number of other countries. How do feel about it?

We are journalists and we are always looking for good stories. Our prime objective is to inform our readers about interesting developments. If any of our stories really creates a stir because of its news value, we believe it is the success of our entire team.
