As the reports, videos and interviews about Uighur Muslims being captivated in internment camps poured in as the major crackdown in Xinjiang continues, the Chinese official has declined all such claims with saying that some Muslims are being educated in the camps rather than mistreating as China vows to battle the religious extremism. The comments came in after the US was considering to put sanctions on China due to Human Rights Violations.
The Chinese authorities said that there are some Muslims undergoing what they call it to be educational camps, but the Human Rights activists in China and other reliable sources claim around 1 million Uighur Muslims are kept in the internment camps and there they are forced to go under the political indoctrination. The mistreatment goes hand in hands there and those captivated are also brain-washed to support the atheist Community Party.
Li Xiaojun, the director for publicity at the Bureau of Human Rights Affairs of the State Council Information Office on Thursday asserted that it’s like a vocational training, no mistreatments or re-education is either done in it.
“What China is doing is to establish professional training centres – educational centres.”
“If you do not say it’s the best way, maybe it’s the necessary way to deal with Islamic or religious extremism, because the west has failed in doing so. Look at Belgium, look at Paris, look at some other European countries. You have failed” Li added.
The former detainees of these internment camps have negated all such claims as they even told that what all these camps are up with is to Muslims should renounce their faith.
Days back, China’s crackdown against Christian community made it into the headlines, and now it’s about Muslims, the close insight into all this tells that all this is being done to make sure the atheist Community Party, the party in regime faces no serious political challenge.
