    While Sperling, who is friends with Tohti, may feel that Tohti is not an advocate of independence for Xinjiang, but a strong critic of policies affecting culture, religion, economic marginalisation, it is obvious that the Chinese Govt thinks otherwise.

    If Sperling has been able to visit many times despite being outspoken on Tibetan issues, it indicates that the Chinese are comfortable with the manner in which they are handling the Tibetan issue, while the Uighurs are getting out of their control and so more repressive measures are being taken against the Uighurs and their intellectuals.

    One wonders how bad the situation in Xinjiang is.

    And the point is?

    They do not get visas.

    Thus there is no similarity with Sperling, who got a visa but was not allowed entry!

    Why give a visa in the first place?

    How is it in Xinjiang these days?

    Yes but they are not turned back after having been issued a visa.

    If they try to enter into NE , they will lose their visa.

    Is that changes the fact : Chinese can not enter into NE with or w/o Indian visas ?

    You conveniently feign to not comprehend the drift.

    Read the new report and understand the dripping irony of my comment.
