(ChinaAid —Jan. 21, 2021) On January 19, ChinaAid commends the US Department of State for declaring China’s repression of Uighurs as “Genocide” and calls for the world to confront, challenge, and check the Chinese Communist Party. The horrific human rights abuse the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) rigorously commits against Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region manifests in mass arbitrary detentions, forced sterilizations, torture, and an intricate forced labor system.

The designation serves as a crucial step to push back against the CCP’s sadistic campaign against religions. As Uyghus, a predominantly Muslim group, have been suffering severe abuse by a growing police state, authorities hold an estimated one to three million Uyghurs in “reeducation camps.” Genocide occurs in mass arbitrary detentions, forced sterilizations, torture, and an intricate forced labor system. Reasons for detentions revealed in leaked documents include actions as simple as growing a beard, wearing a veil, or having a home with a “dense religious atmosphere.” 

In response to the US Department of State’s designation, Dr. Bob Fu, founder and president of ChinaAid, said:

For too many years, advocacy groups have raised the plight of the Uyghur people at the hands of the CCP with the world standing idly by. Now that the news pointing to an ethnic cleansing and genocide has become overwhelmingly clear, the world must confront, challenge, and check the Chinese Communist Party.

We not only welcome this timely, critical designation, we urge other countries committed to religious freedom and rule of law as well as the United Nations to follow suit in action; to develop and employ similar legal determinations. Moving forward in 2021 to create a vital coordinated effort to bring justice and accountability to the situation, ChinaAid vows to continue working with our partners to advance religious freedom for Uyghurs—for all in China.
