On May 7 a group from Kanpur plans to embark for Kashmir for what they call is a patriotic duty – throw stones at stone-pelters.
According to reports, approximately 1000 members, including sadhus, of an outfit called Jan Sena have been taking training in stone pelting to take on protesters in Kashmir.
This is how they are practising:

The video shows members of the group throwing stones at effigies on the banks of the river Ganga.
They claim that they want to help security forces who face the stone-pelters regularly.
Quoting the group’s head Chaitanya Mahapuri, reports say that Jan Sena has not yet got any response from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to their request for allowing them to go to Kashmir.
All they want is to “teach the Kashmiri extremists a lesson in their own language”, and they have the ‘weapons’ ready. They plan to leave from Nanarao Park for Kashmir with a truck full of stones besides food supplies and tents to accommodate the outfit’s members.
