Arming the people is something that leaders find detestable and frightening, necessary perhaps, but certainly unwelcome.
These people are the common populace with whatever dangerous weapons they can obtain by fair means or foul. If a leader has reached the point of asking his people to act as this kind of militia, things are indeed desperate! If the governed have reached this point on their own, then matters are truly desperate for their leaders!
Bhumiya Bowmen have abysmal all-round statistics. They may kill a handful of enemies if lucky, but cannot be expected to be much more than cannon-fodder: a role which they are ill-suited to, given their small numbers and very poor morale. Unlike their Western counterparts, Bhumiya Bowmen can be recruited as well as appearing for free in the defense of a besieged city. In this capacity they can be useful for a commander desperate for any sort of help.
