China has been accused of committing crimes against humanity and possibly genocide against the Uyghur population and other mostly-Muslim ethnic groups in the north-western region of Xinjiang.
Human rights groups believe China has detained more than one million Uyghurs against their will over the past few years in a large network of what the state calls “re-education camps”, and sentenced hundreds of thousands to prison terms.
There is also evidence that Uyghurs are being used as forced labour and of women being forcibly sterilised. Some former camp detainees have also alleged they were tortured and sexually abused.
The US is among several countries to have accused China of committing genocide in Xinjiang. The leading human rights groups Amnesty and Human Rights Watch have published reports accusing China of crimes against humanity.
China denies all allegations of human rights abuses in Xinjiang, claiming its system of “re-education” camps are there to combat separatism and Islamist militancy in the region……………….
RESPECT OF OTHERS
It is obvious to all that what has been achieved in terms of civilization, stability, education and welfare, is due to Allah’s goodness and requires thanks and appreciation for Allah and praise for Him. However, it is rather important to not forget that we have ample evidence that brutality and the accompanying oppression , injustice and meanness , are like latent viruses, which can appear at any time. This requires us to not give it a chance to appear in order to protect our societies from decadence and aggression.
Allah, the Almighty, guided us to a great thing. It is a thing that confirms and instils the virtue of respect and reverence. Allah, the Almighty, stated in the glorious Quran. ‘And, say good to people'(Sura alBaqarah 2:83.).
The more people rise on the ladder of civilization. the more we should expect them to have more respect and kindness. Therefore, we all have to be exact in our expressions and behaviours not to, unintentionally, hurt each other.
Human beings have a dire need for recognition, respect, being praised, being encouraged, and being cared for.
One wise man said ‘One of the old myths says, it is written on the forehead of every person , please pay attention to me and do not pass by me being indifferent’.
Why did the Chinese government do this ?
