"Until the lion tells his side of the story through
the media network - uncensored by hunters,
the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter."

The Indian Kashmir valley, the world's most militarized zone with 700,000 Indian troops has been witnessing massive protests similar to the Palestinian first intifada with youth throwing stones, countered by the Indian police force the past 3 months. 90 people have died during this time.
