The general expectations from a Salman Khan movie are pretty stagnant and basic. The movie will have some mindblowing action, chartbuster masala songs, Salman's bare-chested body, few classic dialogues, a beautiful damsel in distress and massive box office collections. The audience and the critics don't expect more than this. 'Tubelight' was exactly none of it and maybe this didn't go too well with anyone because of some solid preconceived notions about a typical 'Salman Khan Film'.
But that doesn't...

India Cancels Visa To Chinese Dissident Leader After China Protests

After China's protest, India has withdrawn visa granted to dissident Uyghur leader Dolkun Isa, say government sources.
Uyghur leader Dolkun Isa on Monday expressed his disappointment on Indian authorities’ cancellation of his to attend the Conference in Dharamsala, reports ANI.
The leader of the World Uyghur Congress (WUC) who lives in Germany had been granted visa to attend conference organised by the US-based 'Initiatives for China'.
Along with Uyghurs, many other Chinese dissidents in exile were expected to be a part of the conference in India and discuss democratic transformation in China.
India’s move to issue visa to Uyghur activist leader Dolkun Isa for a visit to the country irked China.
The decision to permit World Uyghur Congress (WUC) leaders whom China regards as backers of terrorism in its volatile Muslim-dominated Xinjiang province was reported to be in response to Beijing’s blocking a ban on Jaish-e Muhammad chief Masood Azhar in the UN.
Last week on Friday, China aired its concern over WUC leader’s visit to India, saying he is a “terrorist” on Interpol’s Red Corner and it is the obligation of all countries to bring him to justice.
“I am not aware of the situation,” Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told PTI in a written response when asked about the reports that WUC leaders including Dolkun were given permission to meet the Dalai Lama later this month.
“What I want to point out is that Dolkun is a terrorist in red notice of the Interpol and Chinese police. Bringing him to justice is due obligation of relevant countries,” Hua said.
Xinjiang, which has over 10 million Uyghur population of Turkik origin Muslims, was on the boil for several years over Uyghur protests against the large-scale settlements of Hans from different part of the country.
China blames East Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), a militant Islamist group, for terrorist attacks in Xinjiang and other parts of the country.
