By Ankush Arora NEW DELHI (Reuters) - An Indian pop group has made a music video honoring a freedom fighter who assassinated a British official in revenge for a 1919 massacre, at a time of renewed calls in India for reparations from Britain for the excesses of colonial rule. The animated video tells the story of Indian freedom fighter Udham Singh, who shot dead Michael O’Dwyer for sanctioning the killing of hundreds of Indian protesters during a festival in Punjab, a massacre that hardened opinion against British rule.     The four-minute video by the group The Ska Vengers takes its title, "Frank Brazil", from an alias used by Singh during an overseas undercover trip.
