Uncovering China's Detention And Torture Of Its Muslim Minority 4

Nowhere to Call Home: Amid mounting reports of human rights abuses against China's Muslim population, 101 East profiles the Uighurs seeking refuge and speaking out in Turkey.

"The first thing they asked me was to take off my clothes… They put me in the cell with the drug addicts and with the killers and they beat me", says Abduweli Ayup, a Uighur who alleges he was tortured and raped while detained in China. Abduweli is one among a growing number of China’s Muslim population who claim to have been abused under the government’s controversial “re-education” programme. Experts estimate one million people are being held in detention centres in China's Xinjiang region; a figure denied by Chinese authorities. They say "vocational training centres" are preventing "religious extremism", educating Uighurs in China's culture, language and laws and providing job training. But more than a dozen Uighurs interviewed by 101 East tell harrowing tales of torture, starvation and sexual abuse. Even outside the country, Uighur Muslims are far from safe. For the many Muslims who have fled to Turkey, the future is uncertain; Uighurs say the Chinese embassy in Turkey is refusing to renew their passports, making it impossible to find work and heightening fears of deportation.

Hearing Abduweli's story breaks my heart. When the interviewer said, "are you saying they raped you?" Abduweli's voice cracking while he replied, "yes." is so visceral.
This is cultural genocide. Cruel and unusual treatment is the norm of the Chinese government.
