As China blatantly continues to commit crimes in opposition to the Uyghurs within the title of homogenisation, the worldwide group has solely now realised the way in which Beijing used the worldwide battle on terror submit 9/11 assaults as a pretext to perform the elimination of the ethnic clan.
The irony shouldn’t be misplaced on the Uyghur group that the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and all Muslim-majority nations, specifically, are displaying completely no real interest in the welfare of the Uyghur Muslims, as they’re additionally victims of China’s huge marketing campaign of lies. It is crucial that Islamic nations, and our Muslim brothers and sisters, get up and stand with us earlier than in addition they turn into enslaved as our persons are. Uyghurs at present are an image of what may very well be the long run for them as China is waging battle on Islam and saying to the world that they’re re-writing the Holy Qur’an.
The Campaign For Uyghurs compiled a report final week named “China’s Genocide in East Turkistan – referred to as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region by the Chinese government. This report lays out how each condition of genocide as defined by the United Nations is being met by the Chinese regime’s actions towards the Uyghurs. There must be greater recognition of the need to label these atrocities as what they are: Genocide.
The report includes numerous case studies of Uyghurs being forced out of their homes and thrown into concentration camps. Women and children are special targets of the Chinese officials as they attempt to bring down the Uyghur population. Women are subjected to forced sterilisations. According to the news reports, Communist Party cadres are appointed to live inside of the Uyghur homes under a “pair up family” program to supervise the household. For most ladies, whose husbands are within the focus camps or prisons, making them topic to sexual abuse, as many of these Chinese males have been photographed and filmed sharing their beds. There are additionally studies that greater than 500,000 Uyghur youngsters are despatched to state-run orphanages. There they’re made to overlook their habits and faith, their identities, and their language. The houses vacated by the Uyghurs are given to Han Chinese from different elements of China who migrate to our homeland. They are given jobs, cash and different preferential remedy so as to change the demographics whereas the Uyghurs are transferring out to be used as slave labour throughout China within the excuse of “unemployment”.
The United Nations ought to arrange an impartial fee, ideally in session with the International Court of Justice, to bodily probe the atrocities in opposition to Uyghurs.
There are many crucial actions to be taken, and we should do not forget that this isn’t simply the calamity of the Uyghurs, it’s a take a look at for humanity. As China continues to push the boundaries of what atrocities it could get away with, the civilized nations of the world should defeat a standard enemy, which is on this case, the worldview of the Chinese regime that justifies the use of focus camps and slavery, making this acceptable, and even rewarded behaviour within the fashionable age, by internet hosting the 2022 Olympic Winter video games.
We should now not perpetuate the idea that decoupling from China is expensive. What is the fee of human life? What is the fee of a complete ethnicity, my individuals? On the opposite, it’s too pricey to proceed to have any cordial relationship with China! 13 tons of hair, maybe however a portion of what’s being taken from prisoners, seized not too long ago, a product of this genocide. How can this picture not pierce our conscience? Is this the hair of my sister? Who is benefiting from my sister’s compelled labour? We know what this hair represents, a really bodily illustration of by no means once more occurring once more. We should act now earlier than the one voice left to converse is one of remorse.
My sister Dr Gulshan Abbas was taken as a sufferer for my activism within the US, and her daughters, American residents, haven’t had any data on her whereabouts since September 2018. Yet, I’m the one repeatedly smeared by China’s state media.
China might purchase the corrupt hearts of males. They might threaten, they could punish, they could smear our names and take away earthly possessions, however they may by no means achieve silencing us. Will you hear us?
