India's Balochistan Freedom Movement : RSS Affiliate Galvanises Baloch Youth in Uttar Pradesh

Bilochpura, a sleepy village in UP's Baghpat district has found itself on the map of the Balochistan Freedom Movement. After a speech by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in August 2016, an RSS affiliate organisation, the Hind Baloch Forum is galvanising Baloch youth in a call to action, staging protests and preaching the cause for Baloch freedom.
