This photo from the murderous 2016 military onslaught against the Kashmiri uprising shows the relationship of forces: soldiers in special forces gear armed with pellet guns, tear gas, & live ammo charging unarmed Kashmiri protesters. Confronted with this reality, do you really want to blither about stone pelters or even militants? Only a bone-headed nationalist could look at this photo & get on a high horse about injuries sustained by the occupying forces. Kashmiris have a right to defend themselves against colonial occupation by any means necessary.
