By N24 Correspondent, GENEVA:- Just because they belong to a different minority culture does not mean they do not have the right to live a dignified life. The Uighurs in Xinjiang province of China have been put to physical torture, mass rape, detention, and murders. And so is the case in Tibet. This has to come to an end at any cost.
The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its puppet government in Beijing have been wreaking havoc on the innocent Uighur people, whose “crime” in the eyes of the Chinese establishment is that they do not belong to the mainstream clan of the Chinese.
Uighur people have their own centuries-old rich culture and tradition and they have every right to exercise their own faith, which is denied by the Chinese military forces and the government.
Many global human rights organizations have long been raising the issues of Uighurs but the international community has largely been unsuccessful on pressing China to stop its atrocities in Xinjiang.
Many countries want to raise this issue at the international level, but they do not want to involve in this work fearing a Chinese backlash on their own countries and in particular, in their trade with China.
The international community has to be mindful that the human rights abuses and violations against Uighurs should not go unnoticed and China has to be made responsible for its mistreatment of its minority population.
For this to happen, the United Nations is the best place to discuss this issue and decide the future course of action in favor of the oppressed Uighurs.
The UN, first of all, must be able to investigate cases of human rights abuses in Xinjiang and be able to stop the Chinese government from its indulgence in the crime against humanity. Until China respects the rights of the Uighur minorities, China will not be respected by the international community and instead, may have to face the repercussions this way or the other.
