After a Muslim procession in Kashmir was showered with pellets in Srinagar, pictures of Kashmiri Muslim Mourners performing their religious duties in the month of Muharram went viral on the Internet, with their faces swollen and backs bruised, there has been outrage and condemnation.
However, some prominent low-lifes could not stand without attempting to justify the excesses and blame the victims for their own victimisation.
“Pellet guns have a range, Stay out of the range,” wrote one stenographer from a propaganda company.
Pellet guns have a range. Stay out of the range. Stay safe. Stone pelting is not a birth right. Nor is it an acceptable democratic form of protest. If one breaks the law, one should be ready to face the full force of law enforcement agencies. https://t.co/N0N79s0Q8s

Another hatemonger who has been caught lying on several occasions, has again resorted to fake news, terming the religious procession as wanting “freedom” which the Indian forces “gave him”.

Some stupid analogies by an internationally acclaimed hate-speech handle were also made.

While others resorted to whataboutery and preffered to talk about Sweden.
In 2019, after the abrogation of Article 370 in J&K, Sweden called for lifting of restrictions in Kashmir.
Sweden didn't understand our national security concerns.
But, today, as Sweden is burning due to violent protests, we will understand their national security concerns.
