  1. Why would you call it disgusting..I guess you are living in fools paradise..events like these don’t benefit common kashmiris in anyway…what would say when a mother’s teen aged son is shot dead. Events like these are rubbing salts on the wounds of those wailing mother’s of Kashmir. The form of protest might be wrong (stone pelting) might be wrong but the message has been sent loud and clear.
