A man cradles a stone during a pro-separatist demonstration in Srinagar, India-administered Kashmir, on 23 January. Kashmir, which is over 60 percent Muslim, has been disputed by India and Pakistan since the partition of the subcontinent in 1947 and is currently split between them. Since 1989, there has been a growing Muslim separatist movement against Indian control. Pro-separatist rallies in India-administered Kashmir are common.
