China Detains ‘More Than 100’ Uyghur Muslims Returning From Overseas Pilgrimage

Chinese authorities in the northwestern region of Xinjiang are holding hundreds of ethnic minority Uyghur Muslims after they returned from overseas pilgrimage, sources in the region told RFA.

A rights lawyer in the region who asked not to be named said courts across the region are being ordered by the ruling Chinese Communist Party to “deal with” anyone engaging in any form of illegal religious activity.

“There is a huge crackdown in Xinjiang,” the lawyer said. “In March, I went to lodge appeal proceedings, and I came across a detention center—the Changji Detention Center—where there were 200-300 Uyghurs who were being held after coming back from pilgrimage in the Middle East.”

“They were all being held for investigation and screening,” he said.

Article 21 of the “26 Forms of Illegal Religious Activity” leaked to RFA in February forbids anyone from traveling overseas on pilgrimage, including the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, with companies not endorsed by China’s religious affairs authorities.

But the lawyer said the authorities appear to be pro-actively prosecuting anyone who breaks any of the rules on the newly emerged list.

“The judge told us [lawyers] that there has already been a case involving a Uyghur who held a gathering in his home,” the lawyer said. “It was winter, just after Chinese New Year, and there was nothing happening, so he held a religious gathering for Muslims.”

“The judge said the trial has already taken place, and they are waiting to sentence him,” the lawyer added.

Article 4 of the rules forbids “Any preaching, Quranic interpretation or gathering run by religious figures or religious believers, without prior approval, outside the place of worship pertaining to that religion.”

And Article 3 bans “any religious activity organized by persons not in possession of the relevant permits for a religious personage or who have not undergone patriotic education.”

Middle East study

Dilxat Raxit, spokesman for the exile World Uyghur Congress group, said Uyghurs who have studied in the Middle East are also being detained on their return.

“There are currently more than 100 Uyghurs being held in Changji, and also some [Han Chinese] Hui Muslims,” Raxit told RFA on Tuesday. “The authorities are charging them with illegal pilgrimage, and for taking part in illegal religious activities.”

“Some of them are also facing charges of religious extremism or terrorism,” he said.

Raxit said the Xinjiang authorities have stepped up their crackdown on “illegal religious activities” in recent months, based on the rules.

The anonymous lawyer said that none of those held for religious activities will likely be able to find employment once they have a criminal record.

He said even those who already have migrant labor jobs in the north of the region are constantly under the eye of local police.

“The Uyghurs who find jobs as migrant workers in the north of Xinjiang have to be investigated once every three months by the local police station, it’s that strict,” the lawyer said.

“They told me that southern Xinjiang is very poor, and that people there can’t get migrant jobs because bosses won’t hire them,” he said.

Last month, authorities in Xinjiang began ordering residents to hand in all digital devices for “checking” at local police stations by Aug. 1, as part of an operation targeting “terrorist videos.”

Anyone who fails to submit the above devices and content by the stated time will be “dealt with according to the relevant national laws, according to leaked local community notices seen by RFA.

Egypt: Don’t Deport Uyghurs to China


Muslim Minority Face Jail, Torture if Forcibly Returned


CHINA: USCIRF Condemns Ramadan Restrictions in Uighur Autonomous Region

  JUL 5, 2017


Commentary– Muslims around the world recently marked the end of the holy month of Ramadan.  The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) strongly condemns the Chinese government’s restrictions on Uighur Muslims’ religious practice during Ramadan in the autonomous region of Xinjiang.

“The Chinese government has taken unprecedented steps to trample on the religious freedom of Uighur Muslims particularly during Ramadan,” said USCIRF Chairman Daniel Mark. “Chinese Communist Party officials were assigned to live in the homes of Uighur families in Xinjiang to prevent them from fasting and praying. This new level of control is yet another example of the Chinese government’s unacceptable repression of Uighur Muslims.  We call on Beijing to abide by its international human rights commitments and cease its harassment of religious communities.”

The Chinese government continues to suppress Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang, often under the guise of countering what it alleges to be religious and other violent extremism. Other recent alarming developments include: new regulations prohibiting face-covering veils and beards; a ban on “extreme” Islamic baby names; and the confiscation of Uighur Muslims’ passports and Qur’ans.

Uighur Muslims also continue to receive unfair trails and are harshly treated in prison. USCIRF Vice Chair, Sandra Jolley, is advocating on behalf of Uighur Muslim Gulmira Imin, as part of USCIRF’s Religious Prisoners of Conscience Project. Ms. Imin, a website administrator and Uighur advocate, was sentenced in May 2010 to life imprisonment on charges of splittism (undermining the unity of the state), organizing an illegal demonstration, and leaking state secrets.

“Eight years ago today, July 5, 2009, Uighurs gathered in Urumqi to peacefully protest the Chinese government’s treatment of their people.  The protests were met with police violence and a number of arrests and deaths occurred.  Gulmira Imin was arrested in connection with these riots and her harsh sentence is yet another example of the government’s persistent targeting of Uighur Muslims,” said Vice Chair Jolley. “The Chinese government should immediately release Gulmira Imin,prominent Uighur scholar Ilham Tohti, and all other prisoners of conscience.”

USCIRF again recommended in 2017 that China be designated as a “country of particular concern,” or CPC, for systematic, ongoing, and egregious violations of religious freedom. The State Department has designated China as a CPC since 1999, most recently in 2016. For more information, please see USCIRF’s China chapter in the 2017 Annual Report (in English and Chinese).

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is an independent, bipartisan U.S. federal government commission, the first of its kind in the world. USCIRF reviews the facts and circumstances of religious freedom violations abroad and makes policy recommendations to the President, the Secretary of State, and Congress. USCIRF Commissioners are appointed by the President and the Congressional leadership of both political parties. To interview a Commissioner, please contact USCIRF at or John D. Lawrence, Director of Communications (



According to media reports, around 150 Uighurs have been detained in Egypt and have either already been, or are currently at imminent risk of, being forcibly returned to China. If returned, they are at real risk of serious human rights violations.


Write a letter, send an email, call, fax or tweet:

  • Expressing serious concern that 12 Uighurs have already reportedly been returned to China, where they might be at real risk of torture and other other-ill-treatment, arbitrary detention, persecution and unfair trials;
  • Urging authorities to ensure that any Uighurs who have been detained have the effective opportunity to seek asylum, a review of their individual cases and judicial oversight over their detention and intended forced removal;
  • Asking what assurances the Egyptian authorities have received from their Chinese counterparts that the Uighurs will not be subjected to arbitrary detention or other human rights violations after return, and how the Egyptian authorities will fulfil their obligations to ensure ongoing information and independent and effective monitoring of the situation of the individuals after their return.

Egypt detains Chinese Uighur students, who fear return to China: rights group


By Lisa Barrington | CAIRO

Egyptian authorities detained dozens of students from China’s minority Muslim Uighur community living in Egypt this week, raising fears they will be returned to China and arrested, other Uighur students and Human Rights Watch said.

The arrests began July 2 and since then mostly male Uighur students have been detained during raids on shops, restaurants and student accommodation in Cairo, according to Uighur students and New York-based Human Rights Watch.

Uighurs were also detained in Cairo and Alexandria airports as they tried to flee the country after the arrest began, students told Reuters.

There was no immediate comment from Egyptian authorities.

Uighurs speak a Turkic language and live in China’s far western region of Xinjiang. Hundreds have died in Xinjiang in the past few years, mostly in unrest between the around 10 million Uighur people, who call the region home, and the ethnic majority Han Chinese.

The government has blamed much of the unrest on separatist Islamist militants, though rights groups and exiles say that anger over tightening Chinese controls on the religion and culture of Muslim Uighurs is more to blame.

China routinely denies any repression in Xinjiang.

“In the past few months, the Chinese government had ordered Uighur students studying abroad, including those in Egypt, to return home. There are reports that Chinese authorities have detained family members of these students to force them to come back,” Human Rights Watch Asia researcher Maya Wang told Reuters.

Human Rights Watch said it was unclear what caused the mass detentions by Egyptian authorities this week.

“The basis of this treatment, and their whereabouts and well-being, are unclear, but we suspect that many of them face imminent deportations,” she said.

Egypt itself has been fighting a growing Islamist insurgency, mainly in its Sinai region.

Abdallah, a student who asked not to use his real name out of fear for his family in China, fled to Turkey by plane on Wednesday along with about 20 other people including women and children once they heard about the arrests.

He said others were not so lucky. “The Egyptian police detained about 30 people, all young guys, in the airport (on Thursday) and announced they would send them back to China,” he told Reuters via instant messaging platform Whatsapp.

Videos shared on social media by students and activists showed men, said to be Uighur students, handcuffed together in the back of a moving truck. Other videos claimed to show people crouching and standing in groups after having been detained. Reuters could not independently verify the videos’ content.

“The Chinese came to the police station and they are now preparing to send them to China. They will return them to China where they will be accused of terrorism and they will either be imprisoned or executed,” said Fakhr al-Dina Razi, a Uighur student at Cairo’s al-Azhar university.

Razi remains in Cairo and said via Whatsapp the community in Egypt is afraid because they know the fate awaiting them in China.


Abdallah came to Egypt in 2011 to study Arabic and Islamic Studies at Cairo’s historic al-Azhar university because such religious studies are not permitted in China. His story is typical of the students rounded up this week.

He said he had all the necessary permissions from Egypt and China to live and study in Cairo, but last year China began a crackdown on Uighur students abroad, and on their families still in China.

Abdallah said he has not spoken to his family in China for about a year because of this. He said Chinese authorities began to arrest people sending money to overseas students.

“Some of us were asked, under pressure, to go back to China, by force applied to their families…Some of my fellow students returned, some remained in Egypt and some fled in fear to surrounding countries like Turkey,” Abdallah said.

He said some of those that returned to China were arrested and sentenced to prison, mainly as a result of their Islamic studies.

This week’s crackdown by Egyptian authorities came as a surprise to him. Those that did not flee Egypt had left their homes to avoid the police, he said.

Another al-Azhar student who managed to flee abroad, but who was scared to give a name, said he wanted to continue his studies, but feared it was impossible to return to Egypt now.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang, when asked whether it was true Egypt had detained Uighur students, told a daily news briefing on Thursday: “According to what I know at present, the Chinese Embassy in Egypt has already sent consular officials to carry out a consular visit.” He did not elaborate.

In September, Egypt’s Interior Ministry and China’s Public Security Ministry signed a technical cooperation deal which included Chinese support for Egypt’s fight against terrorism and closer security cooperation, Egyptian state media reported.

Hundreds, possibly thousands, of Uighurs keen to escape unrest in Xinjiang have traveled clandestinely via Southeast Asia to Turkey, home to a large Uighur diaspora.

In 2015, Thailand sent back to China about 100 Uighurs, a move that sparked anger in Turkey, and fed fears among rights groups and the United States about potential mistreatment. China later said some of that group were suspected of “terror” offences.

“China’s record of torture, disappearance, and arbitrary detention of Uighurs, as well as the politicized nature of judicial proceedings in past cases of forced repatriation, raise serious concerns that if deported, these individuals will be at risk of torture and ill-treatment,” Human Rights Watch’s Wang said.

Yili 7. Ayning 5. Küni -gülchéhre xewiri

Üchinchi xewer: xoten shehiri hemde xoten wilayitige qarashliq herqaysi nahiyilerdiki asasiy qatlamlarda partiye we xelq qoralliq qisimlirida rehbiriy wezipe ötewatqan on neper uyghur kadir «ammining menpe’etige ziyan sélishtiki tipik délo» seweblik wezipisidin qaldurulghan. – erkin asiya radi’osi 2017.yili 7.ayning 4. Küni. Muxbir ezizning xewiri

Yuqiridiki 3 misalda ortaq bir psixologiyilik hadise bar: xitay wehimisi ichide öz sayisidinmu ürküp yashap, xitayning ghezipidin qutulalmasliq. Misallar bek köp. Anilizimizgha merkezlishish üchün bu 3 misal bizge kupaye

Birinchi: gollandiyedikige oxshash, uyghurlarning kolléktip halda xitaygha qarshi namayishtin özini qachurush, erkin dunyada yashawatqan uyghurlarning hemmiside ortaq mewjut bolup kéliwatqan ehwal. Wetenni tashlap chet’elge chiqip kétishke mejbur bolghan uyghurlarning mexsetliri her xil bolishi mumkin. Biraq sewep oxshash: öz wetinimizde ixtisadi, ijtima’iy we meniwi huzurgha érishelmeslik. Nime üchün tughulghan yurtimiz bizge tar keldi? Wetinimiz bashqa bir millet teripidin ishxal qilinip, bizni chetke qaqqanlighi üchün
Chet’elde biz uyghurlar bexitlikmu? Köpünche uyghurlar bexitlik emes. Chet’elde erkinlikke érishken uyghurlar weten hesriti we jan béqishtin ibaret ikki éghir yükning astida turmush helekchiligide yashimaqta. Bezi uyghurlar éghir rohi yimirilish ichide. Bularning hemmisining astida yatqan sewep bolsa yurtimizni xitaylarning tartiwalghanliqi. Bu xorluqni hés qilmay yashawatqan uyghurlar az emes. Beziliri chet’elde xitay bilen tijaret qilip jan béqiwatqachqa milliy küreshtin uzaq turidu. Beziliri wetende xitay teripidin rehine élin’ghan ata-ana, uruq – tughqanlirini ayap özlirini milliy küreshtin uzaq tutidu. Beziliri a’ilisi teripidin weten, millet, din tuyghusidin uzaq yetishtürülgen, chet’elde yaxshi turmush kechürüsh üchünla chiqqan.amma chet’eldiki bayliqlarning igisi barliqini körgen bolsimu, öz we ewladlirigha nisbeten mes’uliyet tuyghusi bolmighachqa perwayi pelek yashashni”hayat” dep bilgenlerdur. Beziler xitaydin ümit üzelmigen. Shunga 3000 uyghurdin,kök bayraqni kötürüp xitayning milliy zulimigha qarshi namayishqa chiqishqa peqet 30 uyghurla jür’et qilghan. Shunchiwala ihtiyat qilip, erkin döletlerde xuddi qoyashtin qorqqan sheperengge oxshash qarangghuluqta yashashqa adetlen’gen uyghurlar xitayning gheziwidin qutulup qalalidimu? Yaq. Yéqinqi 3 ay ichide ”biz xitaygha qarshi hich qandaq ishqa qatnashmiduq. Xitay dégen tikenni kirgen yerdin alidighan adil dölet“ diyiship, chet’el pasporti we xitay pasporti bilen xitay chégrisidin kirip, yaki xitayda tijaret qilip tutup sulap qoyulghan uyghurning sani 100 neperdin artuq

Ikkinchi: misirdiki uyghur uqughuchilar peqet dini bilimlerni öginishtin bashqa héchqandaq siyasi pa’aliyetke qatnashmighan. Beziliri xitay elchixanisidin oqush yardem puli alghan. Beziliri türkiyide dinda oqughanlarni kemsitetti. Misirda burun oqup türkiyige yerleshken we hazirmu misirda oquwatqanlarning mutleq köpinchisi uyghur milliy küresh sépidin uzaq turatti. Ikki aydin béri qéchip türkiyege kéliwalghanliri ölüm qorqusidin qutulghan bolsimu, xitay we misir saqchiliri teripidin tutup solap qoyghanlarning hayati xewp astida.ularning hayatidin qayghurmaqtimiz. Xitaydin qorqup yashash, bu qérindashlirimizni xitayning ghezipidin qutquzup qalalmidi

Uchunchi: xotende bir kün ichide 10 neper uyghur rehbiri kadir wezipisidin élip tashlan’ghan. Beziliri qolgha élin’ghan. ”ikki yüzlime uyghur kadirlarni tazilash herikti“ wetenning hemme jaylirida shiddet bilen dawam qilmaqta. Wetende rehbiri kadir bolush üchün aldi bilen kommunistik partiye ezasi bolush lazim. Partiyige bolghan sadaqitini ispatlash üchün uyghur qérindashlirini köydürüshi kérek. Basquchmu basquch, qatmu qat sinaqtin ötmey turup uyghurlarning rehbiri kadir bolalishi mumkin emes. Xitay bu kadirlarning sadaqitining yérimi uyghurlargha bölünüp ketkenlikidin shöhbilinip jazalawatidu. Beziliri kommonistik partiye ezasi turup ata- anisi we yaki uruq-tuqqanlirining jinaza namizigha qatniship qalghanliqi üchün éghir jazagha tartiliwatidu. Meschitke kirip allagha, tashqirigha chiqip zalimlargha tezim qilip adetlen’gen ikki yüzlime musulman uyghurlarmu zalimlarning zorawanlighidin qutulalmaywatidu. Xitaydin qorqush uyghurlarni qutquzup qalalaydighan bolsa idi, öz millitini jugazda ezip yéghini chiqirip xitayghagha teqdim qilishni üsüshining yoli dep bilidighan uyghur kadirlar, xitayning teshwiqat kaniyigha aylan’ghan uyghur ziyaliylar qutulup qalghan bolatti. Xitayning ghezipi bularnimu yutup kétiwatidu

Bir mehellini sel süyi bésip ketse hemme qoro-jayni weyran qiliwétidu. Xitayning gheziwimu shundaq. Uyghur millitidin bolghanlarning héchqaysi xitayning ghezep- nepritidin qutulup qalalishi mumkin emes. Bu ghezep- nepret kelkunige bezi uyghurlar burun, bezi uyghurlar kéyin uchiraydu. Amma hichqaysi qutulup qalalmaydu. Chünki, siz uyghurlighingizni, musulmanlighingizni untup qalghan bolsingizmu, xitaylar untumaydu
Eng échinishliq bulghini shuki, chet’elde özining uyghurluq mes’uliyitidin qéchip, xitaydin qorqup yashawatqan uyghurlar , millitimizge zulum qiliwatqan xitayni emes, imkaniyetsizlik ichide xitay zulimigha qarshi küresh qiliwatqan uyghur rehberlerni,uyghur jengchilerni tillaydu, haqaret qilidu. Bularning arisidiki eng wijdanliq déyilgen uyghurlarmu ,chet’elde millet üchün jan pidaliq bilen ishlewatqanlarni kemsitishidu yaki közliri peqetla ularning xataliqini köridu

Xulase: xitaylar biz uyghurlarning éziz wetinimizning baghrini bayliq qazimiz dep hötme –töshük qiliwétipla qalmidi. Belki asasliq küchini uyghur millitining milliy rohini hötme – töshük qiwétish üchün seperwer qilip keldi. Milliy rohimiz ”xitay wehimisi“ din ibaret mikrob bilen zeherlendi. Öz erkinliki üchün intilmigenler, insanliq qimmitini unutquchilardur. Bir milletning millet bolush bolalmaslqtiki eng muhim ölchem, u milletning milliy rohining erkinlikkimu yaki qulluqqimu mayil bolghanliqidur. Xitaydin qorqupla yashash, xitayning ghezipidin qutulup qélish üchün yéterlik tedbir emes

Qorqush, bash égishni keltürüp chiqiridu. Bash égish, ghururini yoqitidu. Ghurursizliq, rohni qullashturidu. Qulluq rohi bolsa insanni haywanlashturidu. Xitaylar, biz uyghurlarni qamchidin huzurlinidighan ésheklerning, buyundurqigha ashiq hüküzlerning xuyini özleshtürüshimizge ündeydu. Biraq alla bizni erkin yaratqan.tepekkur qilishqa ündeydu. Allah qur’an ayetliri arqiliq wehiy chüshürüshtin milyon yillar ilgiri insanlarni tunji yaratqandin bashlap eqildin ibaret wehiy bilen bille yaratqan. Islam erkinlik dinidur, qulluq tüzümige jeng élan qilghan dindur. Erkinliktin waz kechken qewmlerni allah gumran qilghan. Allah eger qorqushqa toghra kelse “ mömin bolsanglar, ulardin (zalimlardin) qorqmanglar, mendin qorqunglar.“ dep xitab qilidu. – al imran sürisi 175. Ayet
Xitay wehimisi ichide yashighan uyghurlar,xitayning ghezep déngizida halak bulishtin qutulalamdu? Milliy ghayisi yoq uyghur wetende xitay mediniyitining, chet’elde ejnebi mediniyetning qaynimida érip yoq bolup kétishke mehkumdur. Érkinlikke érishish ghayisidin waz kechmigen millet ghururluq millettur. Ghururluq milletni yuqutalaydighan kuch bu dunyada yoqtur

Çin Zulmünden Kaçarak ülkelerine sığınan Müslüman Uygurları Çin polislerinin yakalayıp götürmesine ülkelerinİ açan Orta Asya Türk cumhuriyetleri ve Afganistan, Pakistan gibi komşu ülkelerden başka Tayland, Malezya, Endonezya da Uygurları yakalayıp toplu halde Çine teslim etmişlerdir. Şimdi ise Mısırın Kahire sokaklarında Çin ve Mısır polisleri Uygur avına çıkmış, son bir hafta içinde bu ülkede din eğitimi görmekte olan Uygur öğrencilerden 70 den fazla kişini tutuklamıştır. Tutuklamalar devam etmektedir.

Uygurların Mısırda din eğitimi alma tarihi bin yıla dayanmaktadır. Ezher Üniversitesinde okutmak üzere ilk öğrenciler Kahire’ye Karahanlılar devleti tarafından gönderilmiştir. Ta ki 2 ay öncesine kadar Uygur talebelerin Mısırda okumasına herhangi bir engel yoktu. İki ay önce Doğu Türkistan işgal yönetimi Mısıra polis ve istihbarat elemanlarından oluşan bir heyet gönderdi. Bu heyet, Uygur öğrencileri toplayıp toplantı yaptılar ve eşyalarını toplayıp memlekete dönmesini emrettiler. Bir çoklarını ayrı, ayrı Kahire karakollarına çağırıp tehdit ettiler. Öğrenciler arasında anne, babaları, aile üyeleri Doğu Türkistan’da tutuklanıp rehin alınanlar vardı.Onlar ailesini kurtarmak için okulu yarıda kesip memlekete döndüler. Dönenler ise Urımçi hava alanında tutuklandı ve elleri kelepçelenip ceza evlerine götürüldü. Memlekete dönen arkadaşlarının durumunu gören öğrencilerin bir kısmı soluğu hemen Türkiye’de aldı, kurtuldu. Çinin Kahire büyük elçiliğinden burs alarak okuyan, kendilerini Çin yanlısı olarak gören öğrenciler “bize bir şey olmaz” diye okulunu devam ediyordu. Türkiye’ye gelmek isteyip uçak bileti parası bulamayıp yardım arayışı içinde olanlarda vardı. Kahire sokaklarına birden üniformalı Çin polisleri yağdı. Mısır polisleri ise onlara yardım etti. Üniversite kampüsü, lokanta, yurt, ev ve sokaklarda gördüğü Uygur öğrencileri tutuklayıp götürdüler. Türkiye’ye gitmek için uçağa binen 10 küsur öğrencini ardı ardına uçak ve hava alanında yakalayıp ellerine kelepçe vurarak götürdüler.

Kahire’de Orta Asya Türkistan cumhuriyetinden gelen öğrenciler ile Uygur öğrenciler bir arada yaşıyorlardı. Cebinden Kazak, Özbek, Kırgız, Tacik pasaportu çıkanları, Çinli polisler özür dileyip serbest bıraktılar. Ama yakalanan Uygur öğrencilerden hiçbir haber alınamıyor. Özbekistanlı, Kazakistanlı öğrencilerin bize verdiği bilgiye göre, sadece Kahire’de okuyan öğrenciler değil, lokantacı, tüccar, turist Uygurlar dahi Çin ve Mısır polislerince tutuklanıp götürülüyor. Doktora yapan çok sayıda Uygur öğrencilerin eş ve çocukları onlar ile beraber Kahire’de yaşıyordu. Şimdi tutuklananların eş ve çocuklar toplatılıp yabancıları toplama kamplarına götürülmeye başlamıştır. Tutuklanan Uygurların hepsinde Mısır iç işleri bakanlığından verilen ikametleri bulunmaktadır.

Durum çok vahim. Mısırda yakalanıp tutuklu evinde konulan ve Çine götürülmek üzere işlemleri yapılmakta olan Uygur öğrencilerin hiçbiri Mısırda veya Çin’de, hatta dünyanın herhangi bir yerinde suça karışmış değildir. Hepsinin sicili temizdir. Çine karşı herhangi söz veya eylemde bulunmamışlardır. Onların suçu sadece Allah’ın dinini öğrenmektir. Bu konuda Biz diasporadaki Uygurlar çok yetersiz ve çaresiz kaldık. Türkiye cumhuriyetinin Mısır ile ilişkisi pek de iyi olmadığını biliyoruz. Belki Mısırlılar, Uygurları Türk bildiği için bu zulmü yapıyordur. Türkiye Cumhuriyeti Cumhur başkanı sayın Recep Tayip Erdoğan ve Türkiye cumhuriyetinden Birleşmiş Milletler kanalı ile Mısırda Uygur öğrenci avının durdurulması için acil girişimde bulunmasını istirham ediyoruz. İmdat diyoruz. Lütfen Türkiye cumhuriyeti hükumeti ve Türk halkı, Müslümanın Müslümana zulmünü durdurmak için harekete geçsin. Lütfen.
