Non constant member function being called inside a constant member function

vikuseth asked:

Open original thread
#include <iostream>

class Hello {
    void Test() {
        std::cout << "Testing" << std::endl;

class Hi {
    :hello(new Hello())

        delete hello;

    void Testing() const {

    Hello  * hello;

int main(int argc, char ** argv) {
    Hi hi; ;
    return 0;

As i know a non-constant member function cant be called inside a constant member function but how the above code has been compiled successfully and giving the expected result .
