Protest Breaks Out Over Movie

It isn't a coup, but there has been growing protest by Shiv Shena activists who are stepping up their protest over a movie that is supposed to be released tomorrow.  I'm not sure exactly why they are protesting the movie, but may have nothing to do with the movie, but something with comments that Shah Rukh Khan, star of the film, made regarding allowing Pakistani cricketers to be included in the Indian Premier League. 

Shiv Sena members have torn up posters in Mumbai and  warned theaters against screening the movie on Friday.  It is still unclear if the movie will open on Friday as expected.  I happened to come across one of the protests on Thursday. 

"My Name is Khan" stars Shah Rukh Khan as a man with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism, who is a victim of racial bias in the U.S. in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Never a dull moment.
