Under Pressure, Han Official in Xinjiang Commits Suicide by Hanging

03/29/2019 XIANG YI

The CCP’s high-pressure control on the Uyghurs also creates heavy stress for ethnic Han public officials there. One committed suicide.

As Bitter Winter previously reported, since the beginning of 2018, CCPauthorities have been implementing the so-called “home-stay” program in Xinjiang. Over a million Communist Party leaders, officials of state institutions, and employees of government-run organizations are sent to live with Muslim Uyghur minority families, to indoctrinate them and look for signs of religious “extremism.”

The authorities stipulate that, except for working hours, these public officials must “visit” their designated Uyghur host family every Saturday and Sunday. In addition, they must bring oil, rice and flour, or children’s clothing and shoes, valued at about 150 RMB (about $22). They must do so four times a month, with no interruptions.

The authorities also demand that every time the Han officials visit their host family, they must take photos showing them eating together and “living in harmony” with their Uyghur “relatives,” and send these photos to their work unit. The latter then sends these photos to the propaganda department. The government also calls on Uyghur families at random times to supervise and inspect them.

The “home-stay” program has not only placed Muslim families under long-term surveillance, but has also caused considerable stress to the Han officers involved, sometimes with tragic consequences.

One public official in Hotan prefecture told Bitter Winter that one of her colleagues had no time to take care of his paralyzed, bedridden parents due to his homestay obligations with his Uyghur host family. Since his wife was giving birth at the hospital, and there was no one else to look after her, he requested a leave of absence from his work unit. However, the unit leaders rejected his request. This made him feel miserable. The never-ending political task, from which he could not escape, made him feel as if he had been deprived of his personal freedom. The difficulties and conflicts that he faced in his family life also grew in magnitude and could not be resolved. He became increasingly depressed, but his work unit showed no concern for his predicament. In the end, the mental stress was too much for him, and he committed suicide by hanging himself.

Previously, Bitter Winter reported about a government law enforcement officer in Xinjiang who was forced to move in with a Uyghur family to indoctrinate and transform them. She did not like the task, and ended up with a severe case of depression.

Many public officials in Xinjiang experienced similar ordeals. One official who manages government documents complained that he earns a low salary despite his heavy workload. Not only is he unable to take care of his young child, but every month, he has to spend his own money to buy things for his Uyghur homestay family, putting him under tremendous pressure. In 2017, he applied to resign from his position four times, but his application was rejected each time. In 2018, in fact, many Han officers who applied to resign from their positions were sent themselves by the authorities to transformation through education camps to study for one year on the grounds that “their thinking had not progressed.” This official never dared to bring up the subject of resigning anymore.

Another public official said that in Xinjiang, people must never say anything unfavorable to the government. One time, while having a WeChat conversation with a relative who was preparing to visit Xinjiang, he said, “Why are you coming? Xinjiang isn’t good.” As a result, the police quickly came to his home, and warned him that they would arrest him if he made such remarks again.

The CCP government has employed an extremely cruel policy to maintain stability in Xinjiang. It is estimated that the CCP has incarcerated 1 million Uyghurs in the so-called transformation through education camps, and as many as 2 million have been forced to undergo “reeducation and indoctrination.” The U.S. Congressional Executive Commission on China claims that this constitutes “the largest mass incarceration of a minority population in the world today.”

One prison staff member said frankly, “Xinjiang really gives people the feeling that they cannot stay here; it is too painful. It is painful for Uyghurs and Hans alike. It’s said that the Han people are monitoring the Uyghurs. But in fact, the Han people are also being controlled by the government. If things go on like this, in the end, people living in Xinjiang will be driven to death.”


Xinjiang: The Largest Outdoor Prison in the World

03/29/2019 XIANG YI

Under the pretext of “de-radicalization,” CCP has extended its control of the population in Xinjiang to every aspect of daily life.

The authorities’ persecution of Uyghur, ethnic Kazakh, and other Muslims in Xinjiang affects all aspects of their lives, causing Islamic traditions to face the threat of extinction.

Several Han Chinese who live and work in Xinjiang have described to Bitter Winter how they perceive the situation in Xinjiang.

Fighting Century-Old Traditions

One shop owner in Xinjiang’s Korla city told Bitter Winter that he recently invited a few Hui friends to share a meal, and made special arrangements to serve halal food. He said, “You don’t eat pork. All of this food is halal.” One Hui friend, with a terrified look on his face, hurriedly interjected: “You mustn’t say such things in the future. We can eat anything now. You saw that, as soon as we came, we put our cellphones in another room. All of our cellphones have been specially processed by the police. If these remarks are monitored, we will be locked up in a study class,” i.e. an indoctrination program.

A shopkeeper who sells clothes said that a Uyghur girl came to her shop to buy clothes, and she really liked the style of one skirt. However, her mother pointed to the Islamic pattern at the bottom of the skirt and said firmly that they could not buy the garment. The mother also said that the government had stipulated that any clothing item with an Islamic pattern cannot be worn. Even home decorations that contain such patterns must be taken down.

In February 2015, Xinjiang authorities enacted the Regulations Regarding the Prohibition of Wearing Face Veils and Burqas in Public Places of Urumqi. The regulations do not deal with burqas only, they prohibit the wearing of robes or of clothing that depicts Islamic symbols or patterns. Uyghur women are prohibited from covering their face, and men are prohibited from growing a long beard. In addition, Hui Muslims are not allowed to wear white skullcaps.

The shopkeeper also revealed that, if a Muslim keeps a long beard and is discovered by community officials, the beard will be forcibly shaved off immediately, and the person will also be required to write a statement declaring, “I shaved off my beard voluntarily.”

Uyghurs are usually accustomed to lay a blanket on the floor and sit on top of it, but the CCP is now demanding that Uyghurs buy sofas and coffee tables, and sit on the sofa. One school principal said helplessly, “I have to take the lead in buying a sofa. The government demanded that I buy it within one month. They will come and check my home out.”

One Han resident told Bitter Winter that she asked a nine-year-old Uyghur girl, “Do you learn the Uyghur language at school?” The young girl replied, “We don’t learn the Uyghur language. My teacher said that not even a single Uyghur-language book can be kept at home. I threw out all of those books. Now, I can’t speak the Uyghur language anymore. When communicating with my younger brother, we may have to use hand gestures but never Uyghur. I’m also afraid of seeing my grandmother, because she can’t speak Mandarin. When I see my grandmother, I’m unable to communicate with her.”

In 2019, the CCP ordered Uyghurs to celebrate the Spring Festival, despite the fact that Uyghurs have never celebrated such ethnic Han festivals in the past. Prior to the Spring Festival, Hotan municipal authorities recruited ethnic Hans to go door to door and forcibly post couplets and hang lanterns typical of this Han celebration at the homes of Uyghurs. The authorities paid 20 RMB (about $3) for each couplet posted on a Uyghur home, and claimed that the purpose of this move was to transform the thinking of Uyghurs, so that they may learn from the Hans and unite with them to make the country stronger and more prosperous.

ID Cards Checked Everywhere

One teacher in Xinjiang told me that citizens now have to bring their ID card wherever they go. Whether going to a school, residential neighborhood, hospital, bank, restaurant, or retail store, they must always present their ID card. Without an ID card, they cannot even eat at restaurants. When entering a mall to buy things, they have to undergo a full-body search, just like when boarding an airplane. If there is even a slight discrepancy between the photo on the person’s ID card and their actual appearance, they will be required to go to another place to continue being screened. Some wanted to go to a mall but didn’t have their ID card with them; when they were prevented from entering the mall, they uttered some complaints. Inspection personnel immediately called the police station and asked the police to come.

The teacher added, “Through the school principal, I managed with great effort to buy a vegetable knife. I was required to bring it to the community office to have my ID card number engraved on it. It also had to be registered on the computer. The vegetable knife can only be used in the kitchen and must be secured to an iron chain.” He explained that this move by the authorities is intended to prevent people from using kitchen knives as weapons.

Spying Becomes Mandatory

Police conducting inspections on the street

One prison warden who wished to remain anonymous revealed that Uyghurs are locked up in transformation through education campseven for getting into a fight, or failing to stop at a red traffic light. Those who have been locked up must provide the names of two to four people who have committed offenses, such as carrying regulated knives or other cutting tools out of home without authorization. “If you provide this information, you won’t be tortured. If you refuse to do so, you will be subjected to torture. This has forced people to report each other. Even some people who got into a fight more than a decade ago have been reported and arrested.”

Police checking ID

As for how long these Uyghurs will be detained, he said, “The government doesn’t plan to release them at all. The government never explained what crimes these Uyghurs committed. The CCP just wants to sinicize Uyghurs. Now, when walking along the street, Uyghurs keep their heads down when they see Han people passing by. If they accidentally bump into a Han person, they’re so scared that they hurriedly apologize. When crossing an intersection, they worry that someone will report them and claim they burned a red light.”FacebookTwitterTeilen


Thousands of Uyghurs Detained in a Gansu Prison

04/02/2019 LI WENSHENG

As a neighboring province of Xinjiang, Gansu has become one of the destinations for transferring detained Uyghurs.

As Bitter Winter has previously reported, to hide the mass detention of Uyghurs, the Chinese authorities are transferring large numbers of detainees from the overcrowded prisons and transformation through education camps in Xinjiang to other provinces in China, such as Shaanxi, Gansu, Heilongjiang, and others.

According to the latest reports, at least 1,000 Uyghurs are being detained at a prison in Gansu Province’s Wuwei city. Sources who reside in the city inform that, in the fall of 2018, a street leading to the city’s prison was cordoned off entirely for two days, and all vehicles and pedestrians were prohibited from passing through.

The first day, an armed police unit used police vehicles to escort more than a dozen buses to the prison, but quickly turned around and left. Sources presume that it was a drill. The following day, at around two o’clock in the morning, over a dozen buses transferred a group of Xinjiang-based Uyghurs from Wuwei city’s railway station to the prison.

“That night, both sides of the street were lined with armed police. Three police cars accompanied each bus. All of the Uyghurs were handcuffed and had leg shackles, and each was escorted by two police officers,” one eyewitness said as he described the scene of the night.

An insider who preferred to remain anonymous said that this group of transferred Uyghurs consisted of approximately 1,000 people, all of whom had been sentenced, some to prison terms of up to 20 years. The source ascertained that the detained are in handcuffs and leg shackles every day.

One network technician in Xinjiang told Bitter Winter that prisons in Xinjiang are being built extremely rapidly. Merely a few days after one prison’s network system had been designed, the technician had to go to another prison to deelop its network system. According to him, these prisons have long been overcrowded, and the vast number of new prisons that the government builds is not enough to accommodate all. As a result, many new prisons are now under construction in Gansu.

Bitter Winter exposed earlier that Uyghurs were being sent to and detained at Cuijiagou Prison in Shaanxi Province’s Tongchuan city. According to the recent information, the detainees at the prison are being mistreated and abused.

A local source told Bitter Winter, “Their hands and feet are shackled together. Even when sleeping, the shackles aren’t removed, making them maintain a stooping position 24 hours a day. If a detainee is disobedient, he or she might even be put to death. Upon hearing prison guards call out their name, some Uyghurs are so scared that they tremble in fear, or even wet their pants.”

According to a March 26 Radio Free Asia report, hundreds of thousands of people in Ili Kazakh Autonomous Prefecture have been secretly transferred to other areas, but their exact destination is unknown. Prisons in various provinces of China have been undergoing renovation and development projects in the past few years. According to the report, based on the information from government websites, the size of prisons in China has been expanding: Over the past six years, 200 prisons have expanded to varying degrees, and since 2018, 34 prison expansion projects have been launched.

Radio Free Asia’s own online research results showed that many prisons that were being renovated were not included on the official lists. This demonstrates that the actual number of prison reconstruction projects is larger than reported.

The report also quotes Di Lishati, the spokesperson for the World Uyghur Congress in Germany, as saying that many illegally detained Uyghurs have been transferred out of the Xinjiang region’s transformation through education camps. The prisons are overcrowded, and the Chinese authorities have planned to transfer gradually the detained to the inland provinces of China where they will continue to be incarcerated and oppressed.FacebookTwitterTeilen


Pompeo Calls on China to Stop ‘Abhorrent’ Practice of Interning Uighur Muslims

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is describing as “tragic” and “abhorrent” China’s mass detention of Uighurs and other Muslim minority groups in internment camps in the western region of Xinjiang.

“We’ve been very vocal about that publicly, and had long conversations with them privately, as well,” Pompeo said in response to a question Tuesday from VOA. “The numbers are in the, certainly, hundreds of thousands. This is, I think we use the word, or words, historic human rights abuse, and we’re working to convince the Chinese that this practice is abhorrent and ought to be stopped.”

Human rights groups have accused China of putting a million Uighurs in detention camps.

China says it is running a de-radicalization program and that the camps are vocational training centers to teach people about the law and the Mandarin language.

Critics of the Chinese policy say the measures are aimed at destroying Uighur identity.

U.S. lawmakers have been pressuring the Trump administration to take stronger action against China. Pompeo has said the administration is considering sanctions against Chinese officials responsible for rights abuses against the Uighurs in Xinjiang.

The U.S. secretary of state is holding a closed meeting at the State Department in Washington Tuesday with Uighur Muslims affected by the crackdown in China’s autonomous region of Xinjiang, the country’s largest region.

Xinjiang is strategically important to China, as it borders eight countries — Mongolia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. Most Uighurs live in Xinjiang.

ABD: Çin Hükümetinin Uyghuristan’a Düzenlediği Ziyaretler Önceden Planlı ve Yanıltıcı

Okunma: 80DOĞU TÜRKİSTAN25 Mart 2019 17:49

ABD: Çin hükümetinin Sincan'a düzenlediği ziyaretler önceden planlı ve yanıltıcı

Çin Dışişleri Bakanlığı, hükümetin yabancı diplomatlara ve gazetecilere yönelik düzenlediği Sincan (Doğu Türkistan) seyahatlerinin, oradaki gerçek durumu gösterme konusunda hayli başarılı olduğunu belirtti.

Dışişleri Bakanlığı Sözcüsü Geng Shuang, Sincan’a düzenlenen ziyaretler ile Çin’in aslında bu bölgede ne yapmaya çalıştığını yerinde gösterdiklerini iddia etti.

Washington’a sert tepki gösteren Geng, ABD’nin eleştirilerinin ise iftiradan ibaret olduğunu öne sürdü.

“ABD’nin eleştirileri gerçeklerle bağdaşmıyor.” diyen Çinli Sözcü, “Yaptıkları tamamen dedikodu, şayia ve iftiradan ibaret. Sincan şu anda siyasi olarak istikrarlı, ekonomisi gelişiyor ve toplum da uyumlu.” diye konuştu.

Geng, “Seyahatlerin amacı uluslararası topluma Sincan’daki sosyal ve ekonomik gelişimi göstermek. Gezilere katılanlar, Sincan’ın sakinliğini, düzenini ve orada yaşayan tüm insanların hayatlarını nasıl mutlu bir şekilde yaşadıklarını, işlerini yaptıklarını yakından gördü Çin’in Sincan politikasını da gayet olumlu olarak değerlendirdi.” ifadelerini kullandı.

Doğu Türkistan’da inşa ettiği toplama kampları ile Uygur Türklerine ve bölgede yaşayan diğer Müslüman azınlıklara yönelik ‘asimilasyon’ yapmakla suçlanan Pekin yönetimi, kampları ‘mesleki eğitim merkezi” ya da ‘rehabilitasyon merkezi’ gibi ifadelerle tanımlıyor. Ayrıca aşırılık ve şiddeti önlemek için gerekli olduğu iddiasında bulunuyor.

Ancak aralarında Türkiye’nin de bulunduğu Batılı ülkeler, Amerika Birleşik Devletleri, Birleşmiş Milletler, İnsan Hakları İzleme Örgütü ve uluslararası sivil toplum kuruluşları, faaliyetlerinden ötürü Çin’i sert şekilde eleştiriyor.

ABD: Çin hükümetinin düzenlediği ziyaretler önceden planlı ve yanıltıcı

ABD’li üst düzey bir yetkili, Reuters’a yaptığı açıklamada, Doğu Türkistan’a yönelik organize edilen bu seyahatlerin Çin hükümeti tarafından önceden çok iyi bir şekilde planlandığını, yanıltıcı olduğunu ve zaten sorunların olduğu bölge hakkında yanlış bilgiler verdiğini dile getirdi.

ABD Başkanı Donald Trump yönetimi, Doğu Türkistan’daki üst düzey Çinli yöneticilere yaptırımuyguluyor.

Avrupalı diplomatlar bölgeyi ziyaret etmeyecek

Bu arada Çin hükümetinin Avrupa Birliği üyesi ülkelerin Pekin’de yerleşik diplomatlarını da ziyaret için davet ettiği ancak Avrupalı diplomatların şu aşamada Doğu Türkistan’a gitmeyeceği bildirildi.

AB’nin Çin Delegasyonu Sözcüsü, Pekin’deki üye devletlerin büyükelçilikleriyle birlikte 21 Mart’ta Çin Dışişleri Bakanlığı’ndan 27-29 Mart tarihlerinde bölgeye elçi göndermeleri için resmi davet aldıklarını söyledi.

Pekin’in hazırlık yapılmasına imkan tanımadan hızlı bir şekilde geziyi gerçekleştirme girişimine dolaylı olarak tepki gösteren sözcü, “AB Delegasyonu ve AB üye ülkeleri ilkesel olarak daveti memnuniyetle karşılamakta. Ancak böylesi bir ziyaretin daha anlamlı hale gelmesi dikkatli bir hazırlık süreci gerektirir. Bu amaç doğrultusunda görüşmelerimiz devam ediyor. Dolayısıyla teklif edilen gezi bu hafta, bu ay gerçekleşmeyecek. Avrupa Birliği, beklentileri de dikkate alınarak gelecekteki bir ziyarete açık kalmaya devam edecektir.” şeklinde konuştu.

Toplama kamplarında milyonlarca Uygur ve Kazak bulunuyor

Çin, 1949 yılından bu yana hakimiyeti altında tuttuğu Doğu Türkistan’ı Sincan olarak tanımlıyor. Son 3 yıldır bölge halkına yönelik baskılarını arttıran Pekin yönetimi, Doğu Türkistan’da inşa ettiği toplama kamplarında milyonlarca Uygur Türkünü uzun süre alıkoyuyor.

ABD Dışişleri Bakanlığı’nın verilerine göre, toplama kamplarında 2 milyon civarında Müslüman Uygur ve Kazak tutuluyor. Birleşmiş Milletler verilerine göre ise en az 1 milyon Uygur Türkü söz konusu kamplarda zorla alıkonuluyor. İnsan Hakları İzleme Örgütü’nün (HRW) raporları, Doğu Türkistanlıların ‘terör’ suçlamasıyla herhangi bir kanıt olmadan toplama kamplarına ve cezaevlerinde tutulduğunu gözler önüne seriyor.

Diasporadaki Uygurlar da, Çin’in ‘terörle mücadele’ savı ile asimilasyon ve kültürel soykırım yaptığını dile getiriyor. Ayrıca Uygurlar, toplama kamplarındaki kişi sayısının 3 milyonu aştığını, kamplarda tutulanların çocuklarının da yetimhanelere gönderildiğini ifade ediyor.Kaynak : euronews
