China is arresting Muslims in concentration camps!
Last year was revealed that the Chinese government was arresting approximately 1 million muslims to take them to concentration camps. There, they are forced to study and are tortured both, physically and psychologically.
MUSLIMS IN CHINA?
WHY WOULD CHINA ARREST THEM?
In this region, Muslims have a long history of conflict with the Chinese government. They are a threat to the Chinese government because they want Xinjiang to become an independent state from China.
WHAT IS CHINA SAYING?
That these are re-education camps. “No one is forced to attend. We are just trying to fight against Islamist extremism after the increase in terrorist attacks in recent years”.
WHAT ABOUT OTHER COUNTRIES?
In 2019, United Nations ambassadors from 22 nations, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the United Kingdom signed a letter condemning China’s mass detention of the Uyghurs and other minority groups, urging the Chinese government to close the camps. On 17 June 2020, President Donald Trump signed the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act, which authorizes the imposition of U.S. sanctions against Chinese government officials responsible for re-education camps.
Conversely, a joint statement was signed by 50 states commending China’s counter-terrorism program in Xinjiang, including Algeria, the DR Congo, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, North Korea, Egypt, Nigeria, the Philippines and Sudan.
This footage. Yesterday, China’s ambassador to the UK was asked about a drone video allegedly showing prisoners from Xinjiang shackled, blindfolded, and being led to trains. The ambassador denied knowing where the video came from. And said “Uighur people enjoy peaceful, harmonious coexistence” with others. But the UK’s foreign secretary said it’s clear there are “gross, egregious human rights abuses going on” in Xinjiang.
