    Hi, by hemiplegia i hope u mean weakness on one side of the body. Stroke is not the only cause of hemiplegia and hypertension is not the only cause of stroke. So its best if ur brother can have a brain CT Scan done, though quite expensive, and see a neurologist. He will do well on physiotherapy also. Take care
