Sometimes his long beard is banned, sometimes he is given the command not to keep the Quran.
Sometimes they are tried to brainwash, sometimes their forced sterilization of women.
Whenever such accusations were made about Uighur Muslims, China always described them as baseless, but there are many such reports with evidences that couldn’t be ignored. Still the condition of Uighur Muslims does not get much attention from the world. Even those countries which become the flag bearers of Muslims, they are never seen to raise the voice for them.
China never tolerate any kind of opposition on its own land, which is not a nascent fact.
Many countries, including Pakistan, are involved in China’s Belt and Road Initiative(BRI),and China ensures that the countries participating in the project will not interfere in any of its matters.
China is building a network of roads,railway lines and ports through the BRI project, which will bridge the gap between Asia, Europe and Africa. China started this project few years ago, in order to materialize it has shed billions of dollars like water. Pakistan bordering Xinjiang, has been a part of this project from the beginning. It has given a loan of billion of dollars to Pakistan. China can move anywhere in Pakistan because of CPEC. In such a situation, Pakistan is good against China in support of Uighur Muslims.
What the other countries says:Indonesia, the country with the largest Muslim population in the world, but in case of Uighur Muslims it has always said that he talks directly to China about this.
Saudi Arabia which presents itself as the leader of the Sunni Muslims world. But in an interview to Chinese government television, Crown prince Mohammad Bin Salman said, it is the right of China to take necessary steps against extremists for their National security.
When it comes to Turkey, it is believed that Uighurs find themselves culturally closer to turkey than to China. Five years ago Turkish President said that Uighur Muslims were welcome in his country but later Turkish tones changed.
JACKPOT THAT CHINA IS USING:China had worked hard for many years to ensure full international supporter and Shanghai Cooperation Organisation(SCO) is a perfect example for this. SCO was formed in 2001, it’s main objective is to fight separatism, extremism and terrorism. The basic principle of this organization is that the core members Russia, China, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan will not interfere in each others internal affairs by cooperating security related. This means countries bordering with Xinjiang will not say anything to China in case of Uighur Muslims. What the government calls a terrorist is labelled a terrorist.This method acts as a jackpot for these countries against Universal human values, it is some sort of insurance policy. With international pressure and sanctions China needs these countries to deal with them and vice versa.
This network of China appeared to be effective last year when countries sympathetic to the Uighurs wrote a letter to the United Nations. A group of 22 countries led by U.S.,Canada, Britain and Germany wrote a letter criticizing China for raising Human Rights violations in Xinjiang. But the attempt to surround China failed as the letter was written in response to 50 countries which includes signature of Sudan, Tajikistan, Djibouti, Yemen Kuwait, Myanmar etc.
The Chinese government has made a wonderful arrangement, it is almost impossible to get pictures of Uighur Muslims out of China.
WHAT EXPERTS SAYS:Ryan Tham, a senior Research fellow at Nottingham university believes some facts which I have mentioned here as he has been studying Uighur Muslims for almost two decades. He believes that it is very important to come out of China with more and more pictures of Uighurs, and he says that lack of photographs is a big obstacle to tell the world about the dealings with the Uighurs. He believes that China adopts a different way to show the world. China invites officials and journalists from very small countries in a very selective way to show how Uighur Muslims live in a nearly made camps.
UIGHUR MUSLIMS CONDITIONS:China shows very different pictures to the World it shows that there is classroom in which young lads are smiling, windows open with nothing like bars.Ryan Tham also says that school in which he started his sixth grade studies has now been converted to prison camps. Statistics shown by Chinese officials states that the Uighurs population is around 12million but the actual figure stands near about 2 crores.
Xinjiang which remained free for short time, was made a part of China after the formation of Communist Party of China in 1949. By then Uighur was the majority in Xinjiang. After the death of communist party leader Maotse Tung in 1976, there was a kind of silence, and in those time millions of people from ready of China made Xinjiang their home in the insistence of government, this made the Uighur muslim realize that they were going to be a minority.
During 1980-1989 Uighurs were very much free, Mosques used to be open, elders used to live their own life-style, they could even protest, but after the fall of Soviet Union, separatists starts increasing. Police started raiding and arresting religious leaders and young leaders too.
When there was a terror attack in Ürümqi, Chinese government said that about 200 people died and majority of them was from Han community. Han is a majority in China. And Chinese government helds Uighurs responsible for that attack.
And thereafter government starts building large number of concentration camps, schools were made into prison camps.
Chinese believes Religion as a virus and hence Uighurs are torchered in large scale, they are kept starving, and large number of people are forced to live in cell like hell. In prison camps they are forced to adapt the party’s propoganda, they are forced to sing Chinese Red song. Elders can’t learn the Red song easily as a result they are harassed for this, They are asked if there is any existence of God. And if they reply yes they are brutally beaten. Earlier Chinese government refuses that these kind of campus exists but then later they accept it and said that they call it as a Re-education Centre. Some people are kept in prison till they become 20 after that they are send forcibly to work in factories of large branded companies. Even out of camps, in region of Xinjiang they are under eagle’s eye of the government. Cameras are installed especially for facial recognition, check points are installed at every 200 metre, even inside their house they are under observation, government officials are send as house guest to live in their houses.
Voice raising the interests of Uighurs and other minorities in China is considered as voice against China.
Countries dependent on China’s investments can’t bear the risk to raise their voice.
At last but not least I would like to say that countries laying gangsta I’m their tiny little room needs to come forward and build up an international pressure on China to get the clear picture of Uighurs and took some necessary steps to control despotic China on certain issues.
