In pics: Hindu Sena organises bizarre event to 'free' Balochistan

The Hindu Sena is fast emerging as a right-wing organisation that will organise outlandish events to gain some publicity.

After running programmes celebrating US Presidential candidate Donald Trump\'s 70th birthday and organising a havan for his success (since he is more anti-Muslim), it now organised a demonstration to \'free\' Balochistan at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, on Wednesday, 17 August.

This comes just two days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi mentioned Balochistan in his Independence Day address from the ramparts of the Red Fort.

The organisation does not have a large number of followers, but its bizarre protests have started gaining a lot of media attention.

The Hindu Sena was founded by Vishnu Gupta in 2011, and has previously been allegedly been involved in acts of vandalism and assault. Over the years, it has also claimed to have done its bit to fight terror.

The Hindu Sena\'s first claim to fame came in August 2013, when Gupta and another protestor slapped

It shot to fame in August 2013, when Gupta and another protester slapped Syed Abdul Karim Tunda, outside the Patiala House Court in Delhi. Tunda was then on trial for allegedly making bombs for the Lashkar-e-Taiba.

According to the Sena\'s activists, they are \'real\' Hindus, and are doing things to save Hindu \'dharma\'.
