Protests can result in one or the other: a resolution or a revolution. In Kashmir–a northern subcontinent of India (ruled by India)–protests for freedom have followed the latter, but in a way that caused 80 deaths and the blinding of another hundred.

Those who oppose Indian rule over the Kashmiri people, commonly youth, paraded through villages with violent protesting. Militant security forces responded with brutality, only escalating the conflict among the nation and its people.

Footage of the frenzy circulated through several media outlets, showing images of men wielding guns and even people being used as human shields to defend themselves from soldiers.

Kashmiri protests have been active since last summer when Indian security forces killed Burhan Wani, a separatist leader popular among the Kashmiri people.
