After China’s Azhar scandal, Uyghurs get Indian visa


NEWDELHI: China has protested New Delhi’s decision to allow Uyghur activists to come to India to meet Dalai Lama in a move meant to up the ante against Beijing at a time when it has stonewalled India’s attempt to designate Pathankot mastermind Masood Azhar a global terrorist.

On Friday, MEA spokesman Vikas Swarup tried to wriggle out of taking a public stand, saying, “We have seen the media reports, and the external affairs ministry is trying to ascertain the facts.

” In Beijing, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswonan Hua Chunying retorted, “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 the due obligation of relevant countries.”
