It seems that there is no respite for the Uyghur Muslims to escape from the spine chilling atrocities committed by the modern-day Hitler– Chinese President Xi Jinping. While the Uyghur Muslims residing in the Xinjiang province continue to be subjected to unfathomable human rights violations, the Uyghurs who were lucky enough to escape to Islamic countries namely, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Turkey, are now being deported by the so-called leaders of the Islamic world as they work in cahoots with China.
At a time when the world is witnessing arguably the worst systemic targeting of a community ever since Hitler’s treatment of Jews, the leaders of the Muslim Ummah have not only turned a blind eye to the plight of Uyghur Muslims but are also willingly cooperating with China to ensure the Uyghurs meet their end fate as desired by the tyrant, Chinese President Xi Jinping.
A BBC report has revealed that the Islamic countries are arresting and deporting the Uyghur Muslims who have sought refuge from Xi Jinping and his lackeys. The report highlighted multiple instances of Muslim majority countries – Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and even Turkey identifying and deporting Uyghur students and pilgrims in their respective countries in collaboration with China.
There have been cases of some of the Uyghur Muslims being deported to China while performing the Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia. The fact that the de-facto leader of the Islamic world, Saudi Arabia not only refuses to stand with the Uyghur Muslims but is also hand in glove with Beijing to help Xi Jinping ensure that the community meets its end fate as desired by Jinping, effectively leaves the Uyghurs homeless and helpless, with no end in sight to their plight
The wannabe leader of the Islamic world, Turkey President Erdogan, while hawkish on other issues concerning the Islamic world, chooses to remain silent on the plight of Uyghur Muslims with Turkey also accused of deporting the Uyghurs living in the country.
Various reports have revealed that at China’s request, Egypt deported at least 12 Uyghur students studying at Al-Azhar University, a well-known institution for religious studies.
Xi Jinping who recently termed the CCP’s crackdown in Xinjiang as “totally correct” and that “it must be held to for the long term” as if directly copying from the playbook of Adolf Hitler, has subjected at least 1 million Uyghurs in detention camps where the Uyghurs are undergoing “re-education”.
In September last year, Lawyer Hamid Sabi, speaking at the UNHRC headquarters in Geneva claimed that the Chinese government is harvesting and selling organs from persecuted ethnic and religious minorities including the Uyghur Muslims, who are being persecuted at an accelerated pace.
China has a very low number of voluntary organ donors, at an average of just more than 100 per year. However, the number of organ transplants run into thousands. This number shot up in a big way only after 2004. A report says that in China, over 60,000 to 100,000 transplants have been taking place annually, to the point that surgeons have ‘lost count’.
Since 2018, Uyghur families in Xinjiang have to mandatorily invite government officials into their homes, provide them information about their lives and political views, and comply with political indoctrination. The Chinese administration is trying to ethnically cleanse Xinjiang by practising the “Pair Up and Become Family” programme which involves the country’s Han ethnic majority officers – to stay in Uyghur households every two months as a part of the programme. The Chinese government describes the spies as ‘relatives’ of the monitored families and have to work, eat, and often share a bed with their ‘hosts’ as the Uyghurs are compulsorily made to stay with their ‘paired relatives’ day and night.
Worryingly, lakhs of Uyghur women are subjected to regular pregnancy checks, forced intrauterine devices (IUDs), involuntary sterilisation, and even unconsented abortions. IUDs and sterilisations have fallen throughout China, but have increased sharply among the Uyghurs.
Perplexingly, the leaders of the Muslim world have not only turned a blind eye to China’s atrocities on the Uyghur Muslims, but they have also been defended China’s atrocities which can even put Hitler’s Nazi Germany to shame.
When in July 2019, 22 Western nations came together to condemn China’s actions in Xinjiang, China recruited 37 countries, that in turn, came up with a UN letter, whitewashing China’s unspeakable human rights violations as “counter-terrorism” operations. Shockingly, 14 Muslim majority countries, all part of the Organisation of the Islamic Countries were a signatory of the letter defending China.
The same OIC, which whines at the slightest harm or insult to the Muslim community, is wilfully blind to China’s relentless atrocities against their brethren – the Uyghur Muslims.
So what explains their silence? The Chinese cheque book. Let’s take the example of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince, Mohammed Bin Salman, who came under heavy fire after he chose to defend China’s crackdown on the Uyghur Muslims. China is Saudi Arabia’s biggest trading partner, with Saudi imports from China totalling about $46billion in 2018. In June, China imported more oil from Saudi Arabia than any other country, hence, explaining MBS’ silence on the issue.
The so-called torchbearers of the Islamic world have no love for their community; the countries are only led by the money and the prestige that comes with being proclaimed as the leader of the Islamic world. The Uyghur Muslims now face certain extinction at the hands of Xi Jinping and the Islamic world is equally culpable for the same.
