Hold Xi Jinping accountable for genocide: Uyghurs to United Nations

Uyghur Muslims in China

New York July 8 : The Uyghur Turks and other Muslim communities in China have asked the United Nations and other international organisations to put pressure on China and investigate the acts of genocide perpetrated against the Uyghurs.

A report titled “Genocide in East Turkistan” holds China responsible and says that despite the Covid 19 pandemic, the Chinese government continues its oppression and persecution of Uyghur Turks and other Muslim communities for its own political and economic interests.

The report says that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) systematically continues to pressure and torture Uyghurs to force them to assimilate and then destroys them.

“The Beijing Administration breached the “Prevention of Genocide” contract which was signed and approved by them before the international community,” the report said.

“As such, the President of the People”s Republic of China, Xi Jinping, and the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region Secretary, Chen Quanguo, and other executives are all responsible and accountable for these crimes,” the report said.

The report has been prepared by the Campaign for Uyghurs, which works to promote and advocate the human rights and democratic freedom of the Uyghurs and other Turkic people in East Turkistan (referred to in China as Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region).

It demanded that in order to monitor China”s policies in the region, it is necessary to create an international commission which would take the necessary measures to effectively observe China”s actions in the region.

The genocide committed against the Arakanese Muslims who fled Myanmar was moved to the International Court of Justice by Gambia. This case was filed by Gambia (a Muslim majority nation) on behalf of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

“The Organization of Islamic Cooperation should act on the crimes of genocide committed in East Turkistan,” it demanded.

The report has demanded that China should be held accountable for all the human rights violations they committed, especially in the concentration camps.

The coronavirus gives a crucial insight into how China manipulates the world, and many countries are beginning to question the acts by the Beijing administration.

“Unfortunately, on our watch, Uyghurs share a similar fate with the occupied people of Palestine. This is an international case. All countries, especially the Islamic world, should act before it is too late,” the report demanded.

“It is important that the United Nations and other international organisations take the necessary measures to put pressure on China and take actions to investigate the acts of genocide perpetrated against the Uyghurs. These crimes must be brought forward by an international commission and their perpetrators must be prosecuted in the International Court of Justice,” the report said.

East Turkistan, officially called the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region by China, has in recent years become a place with the most widespread human rights violations.

The Chinese Communist Party is exerting increasing pressure and tyranny towards the Muslim communities, especially Uyghur Turks, as a result of economic, political and geopolitical interests in those regions.

Since 2014 in particular, Uyghurs have been forced to systematically assimilate with the objective of eradicating their ethnic identity and the population. In recent years, the events taking place in East Turkistan have met the definition of genocide listed in the ”Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide” signed in 1948, the report said.

The Chinese government sent 1.1 million Han Chinese cadres to East Turkistan to control the daily lives of the Uyghurs. Their job is to stay in Uyghur homes, share the same bed with them if necessary, and control all aspects of their daily lives.

With the ”Double Relative Programme” initiated by the Beijing government, Han Chinese cadres make visits at least once every two months and stay for about a week.

During the stay, while constantly spreading the Chinese Communist Party propaganda, they also spy on them. During these visits, they encourage drinking alcohol and eat pork, which are forbidden in Islam. If a Uyghur requests ”halal meat” from the market and if they do not drink, they are declared a suspect and sent to the camps.

“The most dangerous aspect of this double relative programme is that women, whose husbands are in the camps, have to share the same bed with the Chinese cadres,” the report noted.

The Campaign for Uyghurs Executive Director, Rushan Abbas, pointed out that this situation has led to ”government sponsored mass rapes”.

Forcing young Uyghur girls to marry Han Chinese men is a step towards changing the demographics in East Turkistan, in particular, as a result of the Chinese who come to stay in Uyghur houses as permanent guests and marry the young girls living there.

Parents are unable to object to the marriage because if they do, they are sent to the camps. In order to disrupt the Uyghur family structure, the Beijing administration offers the Han Chinese money, jobs and free homes for these arranged marriages.

The Communist Party successfully spreads propaganda through films and advertisements and other broadcasting organs in order to recruit candidates for the forced marriages, the report found.

Another crime committed by the Chinese Communist Party is the forced transfer of people from East Turkistan into proper China to work in forced labour facilities. Just as the Nazis forced Jews to work, Uyghurs are sent to work in factories with uniforms similar to prisoners.

The ”Uyghurs for Sale” report prepared by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute contains striking information. In the report, it was revealed that more than 80,000 Uyghurs were taken from the camps and sent to the factories to produce goods for globally renowned Wester companies, such as Nike, GAP and Apple.

The unconfirmed statistics put that number to over 500 companies.

Jahangirpuri Delhi Coronavirus Test

New Delhi: India’s novel Coronavirus tally crossed the 23-lakh mark on Wednesday with detection of 60,963 new cases in the last 24 hours, while 834 more fatalities took the death toll to 46,091, the Health Ministry said.

Out of the total 2,329,638 cases, recoveries surged to 1,639,599 as a record 56,110 more patients recovered during the period. The recovery rate is nearly 70 per cent now. The active cases in the country currently total 6,43,948.

Notably, the fatality rate, which is the proportion of people who die of the disease among individuals diagnosed, has dropped to about two per cent, the Ministry said.

The country had touched the 20-lakh mark on August 7 and added more than 3,00,000 cases in less than five days. The silver lining, however, is that the gap between recoveries and active cases is growing every day. Currently, recoveries are 10 lakh more than the active cases.

As many as 7,33,449 samples were tested on Tuesday, taking the total to 2,60,15,297 samples till date, according to the Indian Council of Medical Research.

Maharashtra remained the worst-hit state with a total of 5,24,513 cases and 18,050 deaths, followed by Tamil Nadu with 302,815 cases and 5041 deaths. The southern state is followed by Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Delhi, and Uttar Pradesh.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi interacted with Chief Ministers and representatives of 10 states, including Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Punjab, Bihar, Gujarat, Telangana, and Uttar Pradesh for a review meeting.

He mentioned that almost 80 per cent of the active cases are from the participating 10 states, and if the virus is defeated in these states, the entire country will emerge victorious in the battle against COVID-19.

Lucknow, Aug 12 : Lucknow has recorded an all-time high of 831 new Covid-19 cases in 24 hours, as it crossed the 14,000 mark. Medical experts have said that if immediate steps are not taken the state capital may soon cross the 1,000-mark in a day.

Tuesday’s figure took the caseload to 14,221 since the outbreak on March 11, of which 42 per cent (6,043 cases) have been reported till date in August.

About 7,317 patients have also recovered till date, but since the transmission rate is higher than recovery, active patients have swelled to 6,743. Though asymptomatic cases are allowed home isolation, the increase in active cases added to the pressure on Covid hospitals.

Prof T.N. Dhole, senior virologist and ex-professor at SGPGI, said moisture in the atmosphere in monsoon is abetting the spread of the virus.

“The surge will continue and we may see more than 1,000 cases daily by August end. The transmission rate would peak in October,” he explained.

Experts cited three main reasons behind the spike — rainy season, negligence of safety protocol and delay in contact tracing.

However, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr Rajendra Prasad Singh denied laxity in contact tracing. “More cases are being detected because we have doubled our testing capacity to 5,000 daily which is double in comparison to July,” he said.

King George’s Medical Unit, medicine head and in charge of Covid unit, Prof Virendra Atam said, “I see people across the city crowding markets without social distancing and masks. Hand hygiene is also being neglected which explains the spread of the virus.”
