Opinion: What terrorists and Putin have in store for us

 (2)
For days now many in the global and Lithuanian media have locked horns over the terrorist acts in Paris. There are some who say that freedom to express one's convictions is above any religious or social group interests; others contend that cartoons published by the likes of Charlie Hebdo made merciless mockery of believers' feelings, that they cannot be subsumed under the "social group" category and have nothing to do with freedom of expression.
