Can the AIDers be hanged instead?
Our "external supporters" were also lined up along side the protesters. You might have guessed who I am talking about but here is the list anyway -
Human rights activists, separatist leaders from Kashmir and literary figures today came out in support of Mohammad Afzal... Demanding clemency for the former JKLF member, the outfit's chief Yaseen Malik, People's Conference leader Sajjad Lone, noted Gandhian Nirmala Deshpande, social activist Medha Patkar, Arundhati Roy and Sandeep Pandey came together and staged a protest against the death sentence given to him.
Ironically, in the same slide show, there are pictures of Srinagar troops fighting terrorist who have hijacked a Shiva temple.
Not only the troops are fighting radical jihadists but are also under fire from violent protesters asking for release of terrorists.
Some reminder pictures of everyday life in Srinagar and of terrorists supporting each other:

Some others who joined the drama:
Milli Gazette Editor, Zaffar-ul-Islam Khan, social activist Medha Patkar, secretary Jamat-e-Islami Hind Naseer Ullah Khan Afandi, All India Sikh Students Federation leader Mohinder Singh, Akali Dal Mann’s Sarava Deep Singh, Senior Doctors Association President Dr Anoop Sariya, All India New Democracy’s Dr Aparna, Jan Hitt Chief Dr NK Bhattacharya, Anjani Kumar, senior writer Javid Naqvi, Jammu Kashmir Ladakh Students Forum President, CPI Member Assembly Dr Aparna, All India Students Association President Kavita Krishna, Jammu And Kashmir Employees Forum’s Nissar Ali, Professor Vijay Singh, Prof Kamal Mitra Chenoy of JNU, Prof S A R Geelani of Delhi University, senior Supreme Court lawyer Nandita Haksar, senior rights activist Tapan Bose, Magsaysay Award Winner Sandeep Pandey, human rights activist Gautam Navlakha and filmmaker Sanjay Kak.
Apparently, not a single one of these "masiahs" protested or gave a statement for the soldiers or their families who died defending these unworthy politicians and citizens. Sigh :(
